Today we are going to look at a soda pop that will take you back. In 1938, the National NuGrape Company of Atlanta, makers of course of one of the best grape sodas out there, came up with an orange flavored drink they called SunCrest. Today the drink is licensed under the Dad’s Root Beer Company, LLC.
While I was a big fan of it’s sister drink, NuGrape, SunCrest was just kind of “meh!”. It tasted good and was enjoyable, but I didn’t think anything really stuck out about it. It is better than most store brand orange sodas or anything Coke or Pepsi is turning out. It definitely beats out Fanta. But when compared in the glass bottle world, it’s rather average. For me it’s on par with Faygo Orange, but not to the level of Boylan. I am sure a lot of people enjoy the nostalgic feel of this drink.
