Filipino Sodas

The difference between American sodas and Filipino sodas?  In the Philippines, most sodas are sold in a bottle and the bottles returned to the store.  Only in the last ten years have Filipino sodas been available in cans.  Also, sodas are called "soft drinks" in the Philippines and most of the big Filipino soft drinks are manufactured by the San Miguel Corporation, the same folks who brew San Miguel beer.

Like the United States, the most popular soft drinks in the Philippines are Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Seven Up.  But there are a variety of home grown Filipino soft drinks you can find in this country (and on this website).

Including: Royal Tru, Cali Ice Sparkling Apple, Sarsi and Zesto.

Below is one of the most popular commercials for Royal Tru-Orange featuring "Joey" and his crush "Jenny".  These commercials were very popular in the 1980s and early 1990s and helped spread the word about Royal Tru-Orange.
