We need a "Regional Soda" Atari.io junk box.

I thought about sending a couple of localized food items before, but I wanted to keep it small. :)

Here are a couple reviews for Double Cola that are pretty positive. You'll want to skip about half way through the second one.

Not sure I ever remember hearing of Double Soda but we do have a Cracker Barrel that I haven't visited in about 12 years (good reason for this) that I may swing by and now check out. I enjoy the oddities and am interested in knowing how this tastes compared to the others.

Wow!  I had NO idea that Double Cola existed past the 80s, that it even existed to this day!  I also always wondered why it was called "Double Cola" - now I know!  Thanks for the info!

 

 

I'm gonna go to Cracker Barrel to pick up some Double Cola this weekend and see how it goes. I've been thinking about this all week!

I tried Double-Cola for the first time today because of Weird Paul's videos. It's fantastic! I finally had the chance to pick up a few of the Double-Colas made with pure cane sugar in the retro glass bottles. I thought they were delicious, in all honesty. I also was able pick up a few bottles of Ski, which is their lemon-lime drink that would be comparable to 7-Up or Mountain Dew. I haven't tried one of those yet, but I love the retro design of the bottle, it looks like it came straight out of the '70s or early '80s. I should really do a photo shoot of these drinks next to some Atari stuff. If you enjoy trying out different colas like others do beer tasting, I highly recommend trying out Double-Cola. It hit the spot!

There is a candy store that just opened up not far from me. They had all kinds of sodas in there. I did see double cola but didnt get it cause it sounded strange to me, but i think i might go pick up a bottle.

P.S. i bought bacon soda
