Soda Pop Shops in T.O.?

scarberian | Aug 12, 2009 06:31 PM

Anyone know of any shops that are similar to Galco's Soda Pop Stop shop in L.A.? It's a store that only sells soda pop mainly from independent small time bottlers. Some of the bottlers are quite old having started early in the 1900's and still bottling their sodas in glass bottles. I've tried Boylan's, Jone's, Seamans, but the Soda Pop Stop shop has over 500 varieties. It's hard finding pop that's made with sugar and NOT that cruddy corn syrup. I once stopped into a West Indian take out shop in the east end and they sold Coke bottled in Trinidad and it was made with cane sugar. OMG the difference between the corn syrup slop and this real Coke was undeniable. The Trini Coke was bottled in small glass bottles. The flavours were just stronger and it had a smoother finish.
