NuGrape Soda


This past week I found a sale at Cost Plus World Market on vintage sodas. One of them was NuGrape. NuGrape was first bottled back in 1921. The producers formed the National NuGrape Company. Since then several different companies have held the NuGrape license. It is now bottled under the control of Big Red Ltd, the makers of the Big Red line of drinks. NuGrape is sweetened with pure cane sugar. I picked it up in a 12 oz glass bottle. If you visit, you will see the drink with a modern look in an aluminum can.

5stars For years, my number one grape flavored beverage was the one made by a company from my very own state of Michigan, Faygo. It pains me slightly to say this, but sorry Faygo, NuGrape has you beat. This is the most pure tasting grape soda pop I have ever had. It has the right amount of carbonation. It’s a shame you don’t find this at every mega mart, right next to the Sprites, Dr. Peppers, and Cokes of the world. I hope Cost Plus keeps these in stock for a long time. It is truly “a flavor you can’t forget”.
