Pops soda ranch, a service station with a difference, in Arcadia, Oklahoma

While a 66 roadside attraction, Pops Soda Ranch, having opened in 2007, is most clearly NOT so much an icon of Route 66’s heyday, so much as one of its rebirth. This ultra modern ode to the soda pop includes a 66 foot bottle of pop, in Neon (would love to see it at night, but didn’t manage that, maybe next time).

Pops has a fairly impressive selection of of drink options (I didn’t see any alcohol)

They have these 6 pack cases, and you can either buy 6 of one or mix and match them as your heart desires

I’m sad to say these were the ONLY ginger beers I found that weren’t diet… the Sioux city one was a bit better (more ginger burn) than the “extra ginger” Cock and Bull, ironically enough. And for those who really don’t want soda there’s hot chocolate or mocha coffee

Of course the place sells gas (I only saw a handful of folks filling up there) and they have a large selection of things to eat (I didn’t eat there)

odds and ends you can buy (many of them route 66 oriented)… but let’s face most people are there to try all the different flavors of pop.
