Late '80s-It was a fruit-punch-flavored soda in a silver-ish can. I used to always walk up to CVS (drug store) after school and get one. Their slogan was "Nobody famous drinks it". I loved it.

Yes, raspberry/lime .. with a creepy bunny... still trying to find an image. RC Cola stoped making it. Perhaps we could begin a pettition??

Oh, Polar Beverages makes a comparable (in taste) raspberry lime soda)just in case you need a flavor fix ;)

As far as I recall, Razcal was put out by Coca-Cola, not RC. Those not familiar with Polar, they're based in Worcester, MA. It's my understanding that they are the largest independent soft drink bottler in the USA.

I still have a bottle of Razcal soda that has been kept refridgerated since the 80s. My dad gave it to me when it first was launched, and said, "Keep this, it could be worth something someday." I still have it. It was made by "Rascal Corp, Sudbury, MA." I'd love to find the guy that invented it and let him know I have an original bottle.

Hey Sobriquet. You left a message on another page saying you look once a year for some Razcal. As I mentioned above, I have a bottle I've kept refridgerated for well over 20 yrs. Leave me a message somewhere (here or someplace google might find it) and we'll connect. Leave an email address. ------------------------------------------ sobriquet at 9:19AM on 03/25/11 From Talk - What foods are uniquely '80s'? @BrooklynBrownie - OMG someone else remembers Razcal soda! Once a year I go on a mad internet hunt to try to find some, but no luck so far. I remember stopping at the market after soccer practice to pick up some of that neon-red ersatz-berry goodness, but that would have been the early nineties for me. - sobriquet

I still have an unopened can made in 89 by Northwest Bottling Co., Seattle, under authority of Razcal Corp.,Wayland, MA. It was a good seller in the Seattle area, but was available only a short time.In addition to their motto, the can has "Juices & Spices. Raspberries & Limes."

jeff -- do you think you could post an image of the infamous razcal can? been looking for a picture of it since it was discontinued some time ago. those i tell about it still don't believe that it existed. (as the internet adage goes, "pics or it didn't happen")

Rascal soda was formed by one of the family which owned Polar beverage (Crowley if I recall correctly. He was kicked out resulting in a big lawsuit.

I remember Razcal Soda too... From '89 or '90?? It isn't even listed on Wikipedia! But I knew that somebody else had to remember it too... Awesome soda!

How funny people remember Razcal- that's great! My father, Ed Crowley, invented Razcal in 1988, after selling his interest in Polar Beverages, where he had been President. Razcal was a great ride, lots of fun and loyal customers. It was bottled through various Coke, Pepsi and RC bottlers. Alas, sometime in the mid 90s it was phased out as my father and sister took a new direction with an all natural root beer, Virgil's Root Beer, which has been very popular. After my dads death in 1999, we sold Virgil's to Reeds, inc. in Malibu, CA. Virgil's is still available nationwide. I think that Reeds may have bought the rights to Razcal as well, so maybe you can inspire them to start making it again😃. Thanks for the interest in Razcal- it brought back a lot of great memories! - Cameron Crowley

When I was in 5th grade, my class made a commercial for Razcal Soda. It would have been 1989 or 90. I loved the stuff!

Razcal was the best soda ever made. This is one that needs to be brought back.

I used to love Razcal. I used to buy it when I was in High School in Pittsfield, MA in the late 80s/early 90s at the CVS on North st. I have an empty Razcal can that I saved. I swear I was the only person that drank the stuff which is nuts because it was so good.
