The name Big Red implies that it's straight out of Nebraska, right? At least to us Husker alums who view all things though the football lens.
Big Red soda is bottled in Texas, by the Dr. Pepper folks, and was first born here in 1937. Did you know it used to be called "Sun Tang Big Red Cream Soda?"
This is a pretty divisive subject so I expect some heated arguments, but at the end of the day we all know that chili, brisket and tacos are all delicious and that Texas does them best.
