Barq's Root Beer, with it's simple but effective "Drink Barq's, It's Good" slogan, has been bottling up fizzy perfection since 1898. Edward C. Barq, Sr., a New Orleans native, started selling his product with its unusual, sharp taste in Biloxi, Mississippi. Today, Barq's is a product of the Coca-Cola Company, which still uses Mr. Barq's original delicious recipes. The current Barq's products are Root Beer, Diet Root Beer, French Vanilla Creme Soda and the "hard to get" but hugely popular Red Creme Soda.
"Barq's Red Creme Soda is one part creme soda and one part red deliciousness!"
