Big Pineapple Soda
The brand of Big Red Soda was introduced in 1937, by Grover C. Thomsen and R.H. Roark in Waco, Texas. As is often the case, it didn't have the same name it currently has back then. When first marketed, the popular beverage was known as 'Sun Tang Red Cream Soda'. Over the years, it has seen a couple of name changes. In 1959 for instance, the brand was renamed 'Sun Tang Big Red Cream Soda', and eventually, in 1969, it was named 'Big Red'. This final name change was initiated by Harold Jansing, president of the San Antonio bottling factory.
The history of Big Red Soda
Until the late 70s, Big Red was marketed only in Central and South Texas and around Louisville, Kentucky. It was around this time that the soft drink started to become more popular. The brand is most popular in the Southern parts of the US. Big Red is known for its unique flavour, and characteristic red colour. The flavour of the soft drink comes from mixing orange and lemon oils with the traditional vanilla used in other similar soft drinks. The production and distribution of Big Red Soda is done by multiple companies, such as the Dr Pepper Snapple Group and the Pepsi Bottling Group.
Big Red Soda has introduced various limited edition flavours over the years. The most recent limited editions are Big Red Vanilla Float, Big Honey Lemonade and Big Blue. Although these flavours aren't continuously available, they are usually around for a while.
Current Big Red flavours
Several flavours of Big Red Soda have come and gone over the years. Some flavours that are no longer around are Big Orange, Big Punch Fruit Punch, Big Pineapple and Big Peach. Nowadays, the selection of the brand consists of three different options: the regular Big Red, Big Red Zero (which used to be known as 'Diet Big Red') and Retro Big Red.
Special BBQ experience
The brand of Big Red Soda is also known for its unique concept where the taste of a real BBQ is combined with the delicious drink, in a single bottle. You heard it right, the so-called 'Big Red BBQ Bottle' consists partly of delicious barbecue meat in flavours like chicken and brisket. A quick barbecue-flavoured bite, combined with the delicious flavour sensation of Big Red Soda? The brand Big Red Soda made it happen!
