Ah, OK.

In Texas, a soft drink is a Coke, even if it's not.



My mother grew up on Drink-A-Toast/Tak-A-Boost in New Jersey (I forget which is the current name; we referred to it by both). Apparently when her mother was a teenager, it was served with pretzels threaded on the straw.

If you're not familiar with it, it's a non-carbonated, fruit-syrup-based drink. You can buy the concentrate in New Jersey and it tastes kind of like flat Dr. Pepper. Probably an acquired taste, now that I think about it.
