Anyone Remember Niagara Dry?
I can. Niagara Dry Ginger Ale was a bottled soft drink produced here in Niagara Falls from the early 1930’s to the early 1970’s.I can remember as a young 25 year old walking down Ferry Street past the current Niagara Falls History Museum and looking through large plate glass windows as the drink was being bottled. The label had a picture of Niagara Falls on it (much like the Shredded Wheat Box) resulting in lots of publicity for the falls.
The locally owned bottling plant was bought by Pepsi Cola and moved to Toronto and phased out the popular soft drink.
I’d love to be able to have another bottle of Niagara Dry Ginger Ale.

Was my favourite ginger ale. I was disappointed when it wasn’t available anymore.
My younger friends do not remember it and I am often told I am wrong. That is reason I looked it up and mostly to see what happened. 👎 to coke!
It was my father's favorite ginger ale, we used to sit side by side on the beach on the Canadian lakeshore near Buffalo and have a bottle together - it was divine, not too sweet, nice tang - wish it was still around.
I remember it too. When I was young every time we went to the falls that was my "pop" of choice. Yesterday I was visiting both casinos and woke up this morning thirsty and wondered what happened to it. I don't know what they used but the taste was much better than any ginger ale we can get now.
Remember it? Yes, of course. My father drove one of the delivery trucks. I remember riding along with him back in the early 50's when he made a run to Niagara-on-the-Lake to one of the stores on their main street. They had an elevator that went from the sidewalk straight down to their basement where deliveries were received. Like Andrea, I loved the taste which was different, in my opinion, from Canada Dry. I too wish I could have another bottle for old time sake.
That was the best ginger ale ever.Nothing compares. Went good with lever potatoe chips from St.Catharines.The best chips ever.
