I think their slogan ought to be "It Wakes You Up Before You Go-go"
Dr. Wham is a tastes-just-like-dr-pepper alternative made by Buffalo Rock, a Pepsi Bottler for much of Alabama.
When I first saw Dr. Wham about 4 years ago, they had a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde advertising thing going.

Soft drink made in Miami by Cuban Immigrants and manufactured by Cawy Bottling Co.
The product also features an illustrated guy on the can who's mysteriously either a bodybuilder, weightlifter, boxer, or normal yet very muscular person. "Champion" George Prince has been used for marketing. He's an obscure yet real person, famed and idealized.
The flavor is known as "Champagne Cola" which many might think is too sugary and sweet. Some say it tastes like liquid bubblegum, but I think it like a cram soda with a hint of Orange and Cherry. They also manufacture a similar looking but less sweet version called Champ's Cola.

Chaser is a somewhat new competitor to Sprite and 7UP made by the people at Double Cola. This was found in 2011.

This microbrew was seen at the 2011 Wilson County Fair in Lebanon, TN. The price seems high at first - $12. But with that, you get a 32oz. stainless steel mug and free refills all day. On tap, they had seven flavors: Root Beer, Diet Root Beer, Birch Beer, Vanilla Cream, Orange Cream, Grape and Cherry. Each time you return, they'll scoop ice into your mug and you can get what you want. I've never been a fan of root beer or grape sodas, but I thought their Orange Cream was excellent and the Cherry was also really good.

This retro mural is seen along Beale Street in downtown Memphis. It was painted by Mark Davey of Davey Studios in 2004.

I'd never heard of this before. I went home and googled this flavor and couldn't find anything on it that way either.
There is a Red Rock Cola out near Atlanta, but their website does not list any Orange soda.
I found this is a Dr. Enuf soda machine in Elizabethton, TN, so I suppose this is made by Tri-city Beverage Co. of Johnson City, TN, although they do not have a website apart from their Dr. Enuf website and it's not mentioned on there either.

When I bought this bottle, the cashier at the convenience store asked if I liked this flavor. It was actually the first time I'd ever bought it. The cashier said she had heard mixed reviews. Personally, I don't think it tastes like a jolly rancher or is in any way different than most other orange sodas.

There are two vintage restored coke murals in Acworth, and this one is across the tracks from most of the businesses. Also on this wall is an ad for Mother's Self-Rising Flour, although the restored coke mural now covers a section of that wider ad.

I'm not really a fan of apple flavored sodas, but my wife liked it. Sidral Mundet was first bottled in 1900 by Don Arturo Mundet, who produced the cider-flavored beverage. In 1988, Sidral Mundet was introduced to the US through Novamex and has since become a popular soft drink in the Hispanic American market.

Bundaberg might be the most popular Australian Soda to be imported into the U.S. I say that because it's the only one I've seen twice. Plus, it's got a weird latch to hold the bottle cap in place. Even still, for $4 I didn't want to buy one. Up top, it reads "Invert Bottle Before Opening."
Seen at Kentucky Down Under, which is a tourist spot with a dual meaning: It's a cave, but it has an Australian theme.
