Pops to Sell Millionth Bottle of Soda
By Gan Matthews, NEWS 9
ARCADIA, Oklahoma -- Pops, the fuel and food store along Route 66 in Arcadia, sells 600 varieties of specialty sodas. And now Pops is nearing a milestone.
Sometime this week Pops expects to sell its one millionth bottle of pop. The winning customer will receive 66 burgers and fries, 66 scoops of ice cream and 2,400 miles worth of gas--the length of Route 66.
Even if you're not the buyer of the millionth bottle, it's still fun to find new soda flavors.
Kyle Thomas found his favorite, Thomas Kemper Root Beer, bottled in Portland, Oregon.
"This is the only place I've ever found it. They have a great selection, lots of options that you don't find anywhere else," said Thomas.
Stephanie Smith bought a variety for her family.
"My dad and my brother are both soda fans. For my brother I just picked out some weird ones like the chocolate soda. For my dad I got his all-time favorites," Smith said.
Pops even has the very rare Dublin Dr. Pepper, made with pure cane sugar.
Pops opened in August of 2007 and is just 5 miles east of Edmond on Route 66.
