  •  Always seemed like a '70s product to me. (5+ / 0-)

    Would have been big during a time when people thought soda was too expensive but weren't yet worried that it rotted your teeth and made you fat.

    I just figured they sold it down South because, culturally, they're several decades behind.

    •  You can get all of these (10+ / 0-)

      organic flavorings with no added sugar (or no corn syrup) for things like anise root or beet.  Since it's just Seltzer, it's big in NY (where soda IS expensive and the Occupied Territories angle will only get you so far).  The ability to adjust the carbonation levels makes it more yuppie.  Charge anybody enough for anything, it'll become trendy.  There was a whole gourmet fried chicken thing in NY a while ago, not that I'm complaining.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

      decades and are only "new" here.  They're popular because not only do they save money, but also vastly reduce the amount of waste (reusable bottles) and lugging soda from the store.  

      Additionally, sugar free varieties don't contain Asparatine as do each of the sugar free varieties of soda sold in stores and they have natural versions of soda with no corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup.

      You can also make flavored carbonated waters very inexpensively.

      I've had mine for nearly a year.  I assumed it was non-controversial, until now, that is.  I'll have to use my consumer power with this company to push it to do the right thing, particular in regards to their employees.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
