  1. The soda referred to as "White" soda is NOT 7-Up, Sprite, Lemon/Lime. It was used interchangably in most recipes though. Graf made it, as did many other soda companies. Many people mistakenly think I am referring to the citrus flavored sodas such as 7-Up or Sprite. Others think of Tonic, Sparkling water, Carbonated water, Club Soda etc. but I am not (even though it is also clear.) Posted by: Marywithane on Jan 15, 2012 (4) (0)
  2. No one makes it any more. It's sad people argue that 7up, club and Sprite are whites,BUT they are clear sodas. White soda was unflavored and club soda has way to much bitterness to it. I miss white soda when I'm sick. Sweet and no flavor. Posted by: VickiJo on Jan 04, 2016 (2) (0)
