Who remembers Cragmont soda pop and what was your favorite flavor if you do?

Mine was sparkling punch.

Just feeling retro today. Cragmont was the Safeway house brand of soda. We haven't had Safeways in the KC area since 1981, but it was where we always shopped in the 60s and 70s and Mom never bought brand name soda because "Cragmont is just as good." If I wanted brand name Pepsi I had to go to Grandma's ...

I remeber Cragmont, however I was all about Adirondack branded Cola, which is sold in the North East.

I remember seeing it, but my family was strictly Tab and Shasta diet soda. Their Tiki Punch was pretty good. How about Brown Derby, Safeway's beer brand?

No Cragmont here. My I drank a ton of Dr. Gibs back in the day, Gibson's take on Dr. Pepper/Mr. Pibb.

Yeah, I remember Cragmont. Mom used to buy that all the time. Too long ago to remember what my favorite flavor was. They pretty much had every kind of soda flavor, didn't they?

In the early to mid '80s I used to stock the Cragmont product on the drink aisle, as well as the entire pet aisle.

Night stock crew was pretty good work. Nobody bothered us and we blasted the radio over the PA.

Good times.

I remember Cragmont. I think I drank a lot of the root beer.

My favorite was Cream Soda. I remember the price was 8 cents per can. I guess that gives away my age!

We had Safeway in California but I don’t remember that brand. Was it regional?

I don't recall ever drinking one or seeing such a brand. Was this in 1952?

I remember Cott soda here in the northeast. I believe it was before Adirondack.

Holy thread bump, Batman. the Cragmont memories I have are from the 60s and 70s. Safeway left the Kansas City market in 1981 so I have no idea whether they still have the Cragmont brand.

Never heard of Cragmont. When I was a kid, in the 60s, there was a brand called KIST(?). Sold everywhere in bottles and in machines. All flavors. There were lips on the bottle neck like from a kiss from someone wearing lipstick.

Even as a young child, when soda was a rare treat, I considered someone a cheapskate when they put out the store brand cans. That didn't stop me from drinking it, though.

They still had the brand throughout the 80's. My mom, grandma and Aunt all worked at Safeway in California when I was a kid and they would always bring home mix match 6 packs with different flavors.

Fuckin' OffGridJim with the bump! Welcome and Word up! I remember Cragmont. Probably Cream Soda was my fav. This thread also reminds of Canfield's Chocolate Fudge Soda.

Fuck, my mom let me have too much sugar.

Chocolate Fudge Soda...

If only I could grab such a flavor at local Safeway/Whole Paycheck.

Folks at my old job have no idea what they were missing out on by passing on my offer to pour some Hershey's chocolate syrup in their soda. Folks looked at me like I was a weirdo for adding chocolate syrup to my coke and even bringing up Johnny Rockets did nothing to dissuade them from giving me the eye when they saw me adding chocolate to my soda.

But itís not chocolate fudge soda, itís soda that you poured chocolate syrup in. Can you not see the difference?
