Availability[edit]

IS THIS STUFF AVAILABLE IN THE CHICAGO AREA?

They seem to be primarily distributed in the Western states still. I dont have references to show that, though. NatBev may distribute Faygo in the Chicago area, not Shasta.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:41, 30 July 2011 (UTC)[]

Hispanic[edit]

  • What on earth is a Hispanic flavour? Cls14 14:35, 22 December 2006 (UTC)[]

Flavors derived from hispanic american drinks, including Jamaica, Horchata, and Sangria (mexican soft drink makers also make these flavors).Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:46, 30 July 2011 (UTC)[]

Not everything does the Dew[edit]

Compare the note here about the "Moon Mist" flavor with the note about MM on the Faygo page. If they are in fact alternate brands of the same flavor, the notes should not contradict one another. Tell Captain Caps-Lock that Chicago is probably part of the Faygo distribution area rather than Shasta. Asat 05:19, 7 February 2007 (UTC)[]

No evidence that Shasta ever made Moon Mist. thats Faygo's product.76.232.10.199 (talk) 06:48, 30 July 2011 (UTC)[]

Changing flavour?[edit]

Sometime near the beginning of 2007, the diet shasta cola flavour seemed to undergo a change to a slightly more citrus flavour. This is in direct contrast to competitors like coca-cola which build upon its unchanging flavour. Has anyone else noticed the occasional flavour tweaking with other shasta beverages? If there is some way the flavour changes can be documented, perhaps it should be mentioned that rather than release a drink with a new name, the company just tweaks the flavour in the existing product line.

Can't find any evidence for this. They do add sucralose to their sugary drinks, and this change (dont know when it happened) might have affected the flavor.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 00:35, 1 August 2011 (UTC)[]

Peanut butter confirmation?[edit]

I noticed there was a "peanutbutter zingo" flavor listed, yet I can find no mention of it anywhere on Google aside from other wiki sites. Can someone confirm that it existed at one time? 74.76.154.190 14:56, 27 August 2007 (UTC)[]

It probably did exist, but all refs right now are unreliable, and im not going to add more unreferenced old flavors.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 23:34, 31 July 2011 (UTC)[]

The famed Jeff Salyers?[edit]

Shasta was also the soft drink that famed Australian TV host Jeff Salyers used to spray on himself at the end of every broadcast. I'm sorry, who? This was the only incidence of this name on Wikipedia, which in turn is the only hit on Google. And we don't have Shasta in Australia. MartinSFSA (talk)

And thats how we roll: this fictoid now removed by a diligent wikignome.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:51, 30 July 2011 (UTC)[]

When did Shasta quit making Strawberry?[edit]

Some time ago Shasta quit making plain Strawberry soda. Hard to pin down when because for some reason stores wouldn't buy it, claiming it didn't sell well. Kind of hard to sell something you never have on the shelf! Bizzybody (talk) 09:26, 5 June 2015 (UTC)[]
