The Hitching Post & Old Country Store in Aurora, Ky is the place to be for A LOT of reasons, but if you love nostalgia and have a soft spot for vintage sodas (soft drinks, soda pops, colas… whatever you call them, they’re fantastic!), you won’t want to be anywhere else.
The Hitching Post has always had a fun selection of “can’t find anywhere else” cold soft drinks but they’ve really stepped up their soda game this year. There’s an entire wall of nostalgic soda pops!
[Continued beneath the soda..]
On a recent trip, Michael got one of his absolute favorites, Lost Trail Sarsaparilla, and I tried one I’d never tried before, Frostie’s Cherry Lime Soda…. Holy Cats, it was delicious! There are, like, two dozen different ones I want to try next time, but I’m not convinced I’ll be able to pull myself away from Frostie’s Cherry Lime goodness.
Besides, Santa’s on the front.. how are you going to beat that?!
Fortunately, if (like me) you’d love to sample lots of these classics, you have golden opportunities to do so – it’s called The All American Soda Showdown and it takes place Thursdays May through August from 4pm – 7pm at The Hitching Post & Old Country Store in Aurora, Ky.
There are over 150 nostalgic and gourmet bottled soda pops for you to get acquainted (or re-acquainted) with. 150! Just purchase a souvenir tasting glass for $4.95 and they’ll fill it with samples from their massive collection.
The Hitching Post & Old Country Store is located at 16474 US Highway 68E in Aurora, Ky. If you have any questions, call them at 270-474-2266 – but beware… they’re uncommonly warm and ridiculously friendly. Since it’s kind of unusual these days for people to be as nice as they are, they might catch you off guard.
Now you’ll just expect all that charm.
You can also visit their website at Hitching Post.us until you can visit them in person.
