Maybe these guys changed it.
“Today, the Vernors brand is property of the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group of Plano, TX“
These guys are probably responsible for the wider distribution of the product.
I have lived here in New England for many years but I grew up in Michigan so Vernors was something that I grew up with. I have no relatives in Michigan so have not been there in many years so Vernors was kind of off my radar screen.
I was elated yesterday to see Vernors for sale locally for the first time at the Price Chopper in Marlborough, Mass. So I picked up a case of 12 cans.
One thing that shocked me though – we all know that Vernors is a “ginger ale”…however these cans do not have the words “ginger ale”…they say “Vernors, the original ginger soda”.
To me this is sacrilegious…when did Vernors Ginger Ale become Vernors Ginger Soda? Is there some story behind this?
Sort of similar thing happened to Barq’s many years back.
It always tasted like root beer, but slightly different. There was never any mention of root beer on the labeling.
Then it became Barq’s Root Beer. Now it tastes like root beer.
Vernor’s used to choke me as a kid just getting close to the bottle or can. Now it’s whimpy, Whimpy but still good.
[p]Eggs of some sort. Probably fried. Do I dare make bacon? Makes me swell and hurt. It’s been so long since having it![/p]
