One of the old fashioned sodas, that I recently purchased from Cost Plus World Market, was Pig Iron Cola. The 12oz glass bottle, with a scary looking gray pig on it, gives a website to visit. So I learned that Pig Iron BBQ is a restaurant in Seattle, Washington. It’s a BBQ lovers paradise, that just happens to be into old fashioned soda pop. You can go there and wash down your pulled pork and cole slaw with a number of old fashioned drinks including Bubble Up, Orange Crush, and Grape Nehi, just to name a few.
The Pig Iron Cola is bottled by Orca Beverage Soda works, and is made from pure cane sugar.
This bottle was drank by my wife, so here is her opinion on the flavor:
When it comes to cola, this one is more Coke than Pepsi. But you would have to drink a 6-pack of Coke to get the satisfaction you get from one bottle of Pig Iron. It has a rich, dark flavor and just the right amount of carbonation. Great to wash down your favorite salty snack with.
