THE BIG COUNTRY, Texas (KRBC) - Soda shops back in the day were very common.

"You may not have seen some of the old drug stores like this and the old soda fountains and shops but it was very common back then because you didn't have all the fast food places," said Grace Gruver and Letha Brinson Gruver, Mom and Daughter.

Today it is not like that, you're lucky to know that taste of homemade sodas.

"It's real syrup and crushed ice, and it's just better than what you get out of a bottle or can," said Mike Cotter, frequent customer at Vintage Vanilla.

Owl Drug Store, nestled into Coleman, Texas, since 1923 and just up the road, Vintage Vanilla in Albany, Texas, with the same soda fountain from 1929. They both are trying to keep those memories alive.
