History of Green River
Green River soda was introduced to Midwestern drinkers in 1919, just as Congress was passing the18th Amendment establishing Prohibition. The Schoenhofen Edelweiss Brewing Company of Chicago turned to Green River. The lime based soda with a hint of lemon was poured into old beer bottles and sold in the market. With the vivid green color and great flavor, It was an immediate success. Green River was a big hit for decades as soda fountain syrup, trailing only Coca Cola in popularity in the midwest. Al Jolson even recorded a song about Green River due to its success.

    Very very tasty

    This soda has a nice twang to it and is not to sweet with NO bad or gunky aftertaste in the back or the throat. They use real cane sugar in this particular soda instead of syrups which In turn makes it taste more clean. The flavor is very limey and citrusy which is a perfect Match with the vibrant color. If I'm ever craving a delicious limey carbonated beverage I’ll be grabbing one of these from my box.

    I bought these for a 96 year old friend who was reminiscing about having them while she was in nursing school in Chicago. She was so thrilled to have them after 70 years.

    Took me back to the summer of 1966. After little league games, we'd run down the hill to Scotts Drive-in and I'd have a .24 hamburger and a large Green River. Thanks again.

    I used to get this back in the 70's at the local drugstore (was like old time soda shop) as a kid and MAN it's good. Reminds me of those times.
