    My main drinking preference is always sweet tea. But when I do drink a soda, It always has been and always will be Cheerwine! I keep a 12 pack at work and another at home and another in my car. Best soda ever. Ive been hooked for 40 years. I remember getting them for a quarter out of the soda machine in front of Upchurch drugs when I could barely reach the quarter insert slot. Trump had better love em. I hope he'll place a big order and keep the White House pantry stocked with them.
