Thrillist compiled this map and list of the most iconic soft drinks in all 50 states. Every state has its definitive one, be it because it was invented there, bottled there, or consumed the most there.

Some notable entries:

Maine: Weird-tasting Moxie soda is produced in nearby Massachusetts, but Maine consumes the most of it. Moxie is even the official state soft drink of Maine.

New Mexico: The Santa Fe-invented Blue Sky hippie soda is perfect for sipping while buying turquoise jewelry at a crafters market in Taos.
