Sun Drop was born last century...
..or so we're told. The records are a little dodgy, but we know it all happened somewhere in the South.
The year was 1949. On a sunny day, a soft drink loving man named Charles Lazier was cruising around town in the family car, noodling over his lifelong dream to make the ultimate citrus soda. We're not sure why he was dreaming of citrus soda, but why ask why?
In a sudden burst of genius, the formula for a revolutionary thirst quenching, authentic taste sensation came to him. He scribbled it down and gave it to his son Charles Jr. (a.k.a Charles Numero Dos, Charlie Two-Times, Charles Double Dutch) who would go on to create the one, the only, the Sun Drop.
Sun Drop was launched regionally in 1951, and developed a passionate following, creating generations of deeply loyal Sun Drop drinkers who knew a good thing when they drank it. As time went on, flavors were added, the fan base grew and the secret of this indescribably delicious beverage could no longer be contained.
At long last, the days of smuggling Sun Drop across state lines are over. 2011 marks the year that Sun Drop will be available nationwide. So clear some space in your fridge, it's time to Get Dropped.
