Portland Native Charles W. offers the following recollection:
When I was a kid in the 1970′s, everyone watched Ramblin’ Rod’s Cartoon Show. It originally aired during after-school hours, then moved to 7:30 in the morning. If you were a youngster, you were familiar with Ramblin’ Rod. (He was one of the inspirations for Krusty the Klown on the The Simpsons.)
One of Ramblin’ Rod’s biggest sponsors was Pop Shoppe Soda Pop. It was somewhat of a chore to obtain if you didn’t live in city-proper: we had to convince our parents to drive ALL THE WAY TO GRESHAM and purchase it by the case.
This was where it got tricky. Pop Shoppe was only sold by the case, and in those days the Oregon bottle deposit on glass was ten cents each. So… that’s $2.40 for the empty bottles, plus you have to buy a WHOLE CASE. That’s, like, a hundred dollars in today’s money. So we didn’t get Pop Shoppe Pop very often.
Fast forward to the future: Now you can get Pop Shoppe Soda Pop by the individual bottle at Peterson’s! With several flavors to choose from, you can time-travel back to 1979 and maybe win the Smile Contest:
