Dang! That's Good sodas are part of the Imperial Flavors beverage company in Milwaukee, WI. Operating since 1964, the family-owned business started when Jack Pettigrew noticed his bar-owning buddies experimenting with soda machines. At first, Pettigrew's small business only provided juice concentrates for soda fountains in bars and restaurants. However, the drinks became so popular, he then began to produce bottled sodas for retailers. When his wife tried his root beer recipe for the first time, she exclaimed, "Dang! That's Good." Thus, Pettigrew's beverage line was born.
Imperial Flavors is still owned by Jack Pettigrew, but daily operations have been passed on to his two sons, John Pettigrew and Glen Schott, who is the general Manager. The soda company has over seventy products and their soda list for Dang! That's Good includes: Dang! Root Beer, Dang! Butterscotch Root Beer, Dang! Red Cream Soda, Dang! Diet Root Beer and Dang! Diet Butterscotch Root Beer. The most recent soda flavor created, Italian Cherry Soda, was made to taste like maraschino cherries preserved in maraschino juice. In addition, the ingredients prove each 12 oz bottle is gluten-free, made with 100% cane sugar and contains no high fructose corn syrup.
