There were so many good flavors: grape, orange, cola, root beer, lemon lime, maybe a black cherry. I remember the song: I wanna pop,pop, I wanna Shasta. I wanna taste pizazz, all the great taste Shasta has, I wanna pop, pop, I wanna Shasta.

Yes, There Was Black Cherry (One Of My Favorites) As Well As The First "Cherry Cola" I Ever Tasted(It's Still My Favorite)More Cola Flavor And Much Less Sweet Than Today's Cherry Colas.

I remember going to the store with my mom and shopping for a party and buying cases of Shasta in every flavor because it was so cheap. My favorites were Black Cherry and Cream Soda.

Red Apple! My favorite - I wish they still made it. Nobody makes a red apple soda.

Hospitals still serve this soda in the mini 8 ounce cans. I guess causes it cheap.

My Grandma used to stock up on Shasta in the mid-70's. I liked the chocolate and cream best. Their diet sodas were pretty good, too, as far as diet sodas go

It used to be a nice regional soda company, but now it is a discount soda, and the quality has lagged.

My parents drank this stuff by the case. It was all diet though. It tasted great but when you stopped drinking it, the awful aftertaste started. My friends never took one when it was offered.

We were only allowed the diet stuff also. We lived in Ludlow, California and it was in the middle of the desert and we didn't care how bad the aftertaste was we drank those things by the truckload. Some were pretty bad diet wise. They had one that was chocolate and I thought it'd be pretty good but it was horrible. Especially the diet version. Over ice they held up pretty good.

Shasta was the only Strawberry soda I could get in my neighborhood and since it was diet/saccharin flavored soda,it kinda sucked.I was jealous of my cousins in Florida who could walk to their local UTotem and buy Chek strawberry soda whenever they wanted .sometimes life ain't fair ,ya know?

Many should remember the animated Shasta TV commercial from 1972, in which actor Tom Bosley narrated. First showing a heavy set guy with sax music in background, followed by marching music, cartoon kids marching and singing the jingle, "Shasta...the pop that hasta..." And Bosley's ending slogan, "So many bubbles, it"ll tickle your nose." I've got this ad from a Saturday episode of "The Barkleys" cartoon show (10/7/72, NBC).

I loved Shasta because in Wichita Ks you could by it by the can for 20 cents. So I would mix and match. Grapefruit and rootbeer were my favorites. But grape and strawberry came in a close second. We would by the single cans in the ozarks on vacation and pack our big cooler full. Everykid got the flavor of pop they wanted so there was no fighting over which brand to buy. Aahhh what great memories of those lazy summer days and a cold can of bubbly goodness.

Shasta is Back! - and its many great flavors are back too. My favorite is "Tiki - Punch" ; it tastes like a fizzy-version of Hawaiian Punch. Also good is the Strawberry and the Dark Cherry. Yummy! ^_^)

Man, the summer of '81 when I was staying w/ my dad, we dranks loads of Shasta, mainly b/c it was CHEAP. But it came in lotsa flavors, so everyone got what they wanted. And I loved those commercials of that time: "Don't give me that so-so soda, the same ole cola, I wanna rock and roll-a! I wanna POP-pop-pop! I wanna Shasta!"

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a Halloween-themed TV spot for Orange Shasta. Dr. Frankenstein sends his monster to the store for the tasty pop. The monster walks through a door, breaking the glass. As Frankie leaves, the clerk treats him like a normal person. Tom Bosley narrates. This aired on "Saturday Superstar Movie" over ABC (10/28/72). Rankin-Bass's "Red Baron" cartoon featured. Setting was around World War One, and all characters are humanized dogs. The plot made like the Germans as heroes and the British as villainous foes. The Red Baron was a retired pilot called to rescue the German "king's" daughter from her British captors. Voice talent included Allen Swift, Bob McFadden and Brad Bolke (Chumley from "Tennessee Tuxedo" and one of the Ghostly Trio on the 1963 "Casper" cartoon). Funny Face, McDonald's, Cap'n Crunch, Kenner SSP and Honey Comb among other sponsors. Network promo for "Brady Kids" cartoon.
