Once upon a time, I was a child in St.Louis, MO. The beautiful new spring sunshine we are enjoying this week makes me think of picnics and parties at my Aunt's house, where we would have a real treat: soft drinks. Since it was St.Louis, we called them all "soda" -- during my adult life in Michigan, of course, I've heard them called "pop" but I still say "soda." Here are a few drinks that I remember enjoying. I remember the ads, too.

would happen when the Mississippi River drank Canada Dry.
(I know, not funny, we were kids).

and the St.Louis Cardinals.
