Foxon Park is a soft drink brand produced by Foxon Park Beverage Company. The company is located in East Haven, Connecticut, and has been in business for more than 80 years. Their sodas are a traditional accompaniment to the New Haven-style pizza sold throughout the area, and they are also served at Louis' Lunch. Flavors include: cream soda, white birch, grape, orange, ginger ale, kola, gassosa, lemon-lime, root beer, iron brew, strawberry, sparkling water, tonic water, and cherry. Foxon Park is noted for using natural ingredients as well as utilizing cane sugar as a sweetener, unlike most soft drinks which use high fructose corn syrup.[1] Their slogan is "All-Ways in Good Taste."


History[edit]

Foxon Park was founded in 1922 in East Haven, Connecticut by Matteo Naclerio, an immigrant from Italy. He quickly embraced the entrepreneurial spirit of his era and decided to open up a beverage company. Its name would be Foxon Park, after the street on which it resided at the time. Home delivery was a key to success back then, as was a vast variety of flavors. Unique flavors such as Iron Brew (a drink made famous in Scotland), gassosa (a lemon-flavored Italian soda), Birch Beer, root beer, and many others set Foxon Park apart from its then vast competition. Ownership has been passed from generation to generation and still remains in the family today.

Although much has changed over the years, their recipe has remained the same. Using only the best ingredients, including real cane sugar, Foxon Park has become a drink of choice throughout many parts of Connecticut and has started to garner interest in other parts of the country as well. Thanks to its ever-growing distribution radius, this soda has been spotted in restaurants as far west as California and as far south as Florida.
