Collection: Bottles & Cans | Pop | Retail

The definition of a "pop" (a.k.a "soda", a.k.a  "a Coke") varies widely.  The most broad definitions describe it as any carbonated drink, which would make the category inclusive of even mineral waters, or highly fermented yogurt drinks.   At the other end of the spectrum, and most commonly: a soda is a very sweet drink blending carbonated water and a flavor syrup.  This is quite restrictive.

We prefer to think of sodas as any simple cocktail of seltzer + 1 mixer.  Sodas are a means of experiencing some singular prepared flavor (regardless of how complex or concentrated that flavor may be in its independent preparation) washed across water with the added life of CO2.  This is inclusive of traditionally sweet syrup sodas of course, but the mixer doesn't have to be a syrup.  The popularity of "less sweet" sodas is increasing, and so the line is blurring between sodas, flavored sparkling waters, bitters & soda, spirit & soda, etc.  Sodas don't have to be sweet anymore.  

This definition isn't perfect.  Root beer, ginger beer, cola, or even a sparkling tea thought of as sodas may be brewed whole, meaning additional water/seltzer was not mixed in post-brewing, just ready-to-drink after carbonation directly infused in a keg or tank (or in a rare case, natural carbonation occurs during brewing.)  We don't see these as sodas honestly.  These are other botanical beverages.  We do include all root beers, ginger beers, and colas in the soda category though, because we want people to find those where they expect to.

And this definition does not account for the fact that some sodas are "built" from multiple ingredients all at once, including the water/seltzer, rather than having the "flavor" prepared in advance and simply added to seltzer.  And most commercially packaged sodas have an additional ingredient or two for pH adjustment (e.g. citric acid, phosphoric acid) or other preservation (e.g. sodium benzoate)... but they are still sodas at heart.

And note that the preparation methods of a product is not always publicly described enough to be 100% confident in categorization by this definition... but we hypothesize best we can.
