A few weeks ago, Mr. Boyd Henderson, a local history maven, stopped in with a little surprise to show us.
Not long after we opened, he paid us a visit and told us how NuGrape was once bottled in the building next to us. That building now houses Winterberry Store & Antiques. And, Mr. Henderson says there was a pool hall over there, too, at one point. Quite the hopping place!
After his visit, we went to our supplier, Homer Soda Company, and ordered a case of NuGrape. Since then, many folks passing through have told me they remember that particular pop from their childhood.
What do you think? Do you like the new look or prefer the old, fun shaped bottle?
Besides sharing a bit of Tuscola history with us, Mr. Henderson also had a tip: Store your pop upside down; it’ll keep it carbonated longer. It”s how the pros in the past did it. See?
