I found Montana's Legendary soda, bespectacled with the glasses-wearing Flathead Lake Monster at a convenience store in west Tennessee. Although the label suggests this is a premium beverage, its 99 cent in a glass bottle shows otherwise. The flavor was ok, I suppose, but the Cherry flavor wasn't all that strong, nor was it particularly sour.

This limited time only soda from 2012 was in conjunction with the latest Dark Knight Batman movie. The flavor seems to be a mixture of grape and the berry flavor of Mountain Dew Revolution. This bottle was made by one of the bottlers who embosses an MD logo into the side of the bottle.

I'm not a huge fan of candy apple flavor, but I always like soda flavors I haven't tried before, and Faygo is usually good for something I haven't tried before. Today, I overheard a coworker say this was his favorite soda, but has trouble finding it around here. For whatever reason, I see Faygo much more often in West Tennessee.

Dandelion & Burdock is considered a fine beverage, but people in the US aren't accustomed to the taste. (I've never wanted to drink a dandelion and had previously never heard of Burdock.) The people who don't understand it thinks this taste somewhere between licorice and cough syrup. However, there are people that swear by it and think it's the best thing ever. It comes in a really neat glass bottle, but sadly was only 9.3 ozs.
In small letters on the label, they say this is "Botanically Brewed." The brewing process causes there to be a smidgen of alcohol in the beverage. As they describe it, it's less than 0.5%, so legally they don't have to mention in on the label. (As they say, 7-up also contains a teeny tiny bit of alcohol for the same reason, but it's so small that nobody cares.) Well, there was a city up north that banned the sale of this drink to minors, even if it was less than 1 proof. That's the kind of thing that would probably make minors want to drink it even more!

Boy do these have a lot of Sugar! The Strawberry Cream is similar to Big Red but a little bit sweeter. They are made by the Arizona Tea people, and there are other flavors in the product line, but not on the day I saw this at my nearby store.

Prairie Berry and Lasso Lemon Lime. The other flavors not pictured are Sasparilla and Orange Wrangler. Normally, I would have tried these flavors, but my mother-in-law is a huge Roy Rogers fan, so I let her have them, where she will probably keep them as a collectors item. These are produced by International Marketing Partners.
