Drink A Toast was kind of like flat Coke/Pepsi - but with a distinct taste - I remember my mom buying it as a concentrated syrup and mixing it up at home - I can still remember the taste - almost rootbeer/almost cola -

This is among one of my first memories!I was bornin 1968 and my grandparents visited us on New Years Eve of the same year.I actually remember my grandmother making this drink with a seltzer bottle and letting me try just a tiny sip.I remember being baffled by the bubbles.about a year after that,my brother and I tried Fizzies for the first time and thinking it was the same product ,but my mother told me about Drink A Toast.I haven't seen it since the mid 80's.A girl I was dating at the time claimed her family (from Virginia)invented the drink and called it "Tegaboost".anyone ever hear of "Tegaboost?) -Just curious

You are talking about what is now called Boost! In the 1970s it was known as Drink a Toast. Back in the 1930s the original name was Tak a Boost. It is from South Jersey and is still available. See for more info.

That stuff was horrible! Drink A-Toast was nasty, fake soda.

The inventor was Benjamin Faunce, my great grandfather, and I don't recall any siblings or cousins living in Virginia. If they in fact did they would know the real spelling of the drink no matter what era :). Tak-A-Boost,Drink-A-Toast, Boost. Here is the link to the home page of the company owned by my family. .

I grew up in Presidential Lakes, N.J., in Burlington County, in the 60's and 70's. When my brother and I got sick, which was pretty rare maybe 3 times, we learned to dread one word, "Drink A Toast." Our parents gave it to us whenever we had the flu and were vomiting. If they even said, Drink A Toast" we would get very quiet and just start wishing they'd forget. But, no. They made us drink that stuff. It tasted horrible. And, it didn't stop us from vomiting. It only made us vomit even more. I don't know what's in it but I left that behind in my childhood.
