Re: Mint' Cola
Looking at the bottle design my guess would be one of the most famous franchises for the brand in Salisbury NC. When Mint Cola disappeared from the market they were left with no leader product so they created their own named Cheerwine from what I gather. Looks like this was an attempt to reintroduce Mint Cola to the soda market, unfortunately it failed as I would love to try Mint Cola.
