Fun Fact: Mississippi’s original soft drink, Barq’s Root Beer, was invented in 1898 by Edward Barq, Sr., in Biloxi (pronounced Bah LUX see). The building in Biloxi where the drink was first made and bottled still stands. Barq’s brand of root beer was notable for being the first major North American root beer to contain caffeine. A Mississippi Gulf Coast favorite, the number of franchise bottlers grew to over 200 by 1950. Barq’s was acquired by the Coca Cola Bottling Company in 1995 and is now sold throughout the United States.
