HistorySun Tang Big Red Soda Bottle Cap
Created in Waco, TX back in 1937 it was originally known as Sun Tang Red Cream Soda. This is the original red cream soda. In 1959 the name was changed to Big Red after the president at the time heard a golf caddie refer to the soda by that name. Until the 1970's it was sold only in the central and south Texas region. Big Red was the sixth-highest selling soft drink company in the United States from 2002–2004, after Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Dr Pepper/7Up, Cott, and National Beverage Company. As a preeminent red creme soda in the South, it is a staple of many Juneteenth celebrations.This fun soft drink is often hard to find east of the Mississippi, but we got it for you right here.

    Wish we could purchase normally. What an idea for Big Red. Make it difficult to get and that drives the price up.

    If we have ever had a beverage that tastes just like bubble gum, this is it. Big Red has a light and sweet flavor, which tastes quite artificial. At least the beverage was not overly syrupy. This beverage is acceptable, but you can do much better if you are looking for a decent gourmet soda.

  3. I love this stuff!! 5 Star Review

    BR is a great soda found in mainly the southern US, and is a very popular drink in Texas. The flavor is quite hard to describe, some say bubblegum, others say vanilla, others say cherry. But it tastes great!

    Another thing you can make is a Big Red Float. Just pour a glass of Big red into a glass, put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it and VIOLA! A great treat!

    It seems ashamed that only Texas, or most of it, knows about the taste that is one and only. Since I was a little boy, I knew this taste! Big and bold! BIG RED! The color is only the beginning of what is to come to the most exciting taste there is in this world of soda! As you press the bottle to your lips , your brain will get an explosion of that Big Red taste! Your tongue will open up and wanting more! Add to the food of San Antonio or anywhere you live and know that , it's just right. The taste, the taste is "The One And Only!". This is Big Red! I just love the taste, and you will too! The One And Only!
