^^^ You couldn't turn on the radio without hearing ...

"The prettiest girl I ever saw .. was sipping Hoffman's thru a straw"

I attempted to find a video of the jingle but failed.

There isn't too much written on Hoffman's other than what Elisabeth already posted.


Well I haven't been able to find the jingle but I did find an ad, a sign and cans:

It has a stronger taste and more flavor than the US version of Coke.  It is made with sugar cane and not high fructose corn syrup.  Basically it tastes like Coke did years ago.


Pepsi Throwback is made with sugar and I understand that it's supposed to taste like the Pepsi from days of yore.



Well I tried it and didn't like it. For one thing it tasted a bit sour. Worse yet it was flat compared to modern day Pepsi. The technology for keeping soda pop saturated with carbonation has improved dramatically over the past few decades.

Does anyone else remember an orange flavored drink called "Sun Dew"?

It came in a cardboard cylinder .. I can't find any images for Sun Dew .. I would buy it at Waldbaums in New York.


Btw ~ I like my soda pop without ice and love it that when you go to an A & W outlet that they don't plop ice into your drink.

  Found this image while searching for soda bottles.  Perhaps put out by a certain UMA feline ?  Hep sodas came in Black Cherry, Grape, and Orange.  Possibly other flavors too.

I use this same remedy with Orange Crush.

My greatest carbonated addiction in life is TAB. Yes, I know, most people think this soda pop tastes like battery acid. And it probably does. But it flows through my veins with no apologies. 

TAB - it's my only weakness.

I never had a chance to taste it but I have a ten ounce bottle very similar to this one in my pop bottle collection.

I've found this tin sign listed several times on ebay, but can't come across any bottles for Popeye soda.  Does anyone have any info on this beverage, and has anyone ever seen a bottle ?  I was wondering if this was a real beverage or a made up item just for the sign, so I'd know if I'm wasting my time searching for an old bottle.
