even if you don't have a million dollars, let people know that you're a Big Shot!

In class number four of Food and Culture in Louisiana, we tasted six flavors of Big Shot soda.

two red, one yellow, one clear, one orange, and one dark red

red (or rade) #1 - strawberry: basic artificial strawberry taste
orange (or ernge): tasted like melted otter pop
clear - cream soda: very vanilla, pretty good
yellow - pineapple: tasted like St. Joseph's children's aspirin
red #2 - fruit punch: disgusting, too sweet
dark red - black cherry: decent

Why are Big Shot machines found only in the hood?

inside Gator's at the corner of Oretha Castle Haley Blvd and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd

I used to love the Pineapple Big Shot when I was a kid. They had a machine at the Schwegmann grocery store in Slidell.
Every Saturday we'd go there to get groceries and french bread and I'd get my can o' Big Shot.
good times for white trash.

I cannot get enough dark cherry Big Shot. In Tampa, there's Jarritos. And in France, there's wine from my back yard. But I still remember those Dark Cherry, hardly-carbonated nights.
