Today I have an upset stomach, so I reached for a refreshing Canada Dry Ginger Ale. It has the perfect light gingery taste and it always settles my stomach within a matter of minutes. I have been using this method for as long as I can remember.

Canada Dry Ginger Ale is made from 100% real ginger. There are no artificial flavors added, so you know you're tasting nothing but real ginger goodness. Considering the health benefits of ginger, and the light taste of Canada Dry Ginger Ale, it is the only ginger ale I will drink. Ginger helps relieve nausea, gas, motion sickness, morning sickness, and it also can help reduce inflammation.

There are some interesting stories surrounding the history of Canada Dry. Did you know that Canada Dry's popularity as a mixer began during Prohibition? Its flavor helped mask the taste of homemade liquor! Although Canada Dry originated in Canada, it is now produced in many countries around the world. And at just 120 calories per can (for regular Canada Dry Ginger Ale), you can enjoy as much as you want!

Some other products produced by this company are: Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Canada Dry Club Soda, Canada Dry Tonic Water, Canada Dry Bitter Lemon (I've never tried this but it sounds good!), Canada Dry Diet Tonic Water, Canada Dry Lemon Soda, Canada Dry Tahitian Treat (which is now just Tahitian Treat. I don't particularly like this one), and many, many more. For a complete list, please see the Wikipedia link at the end of this article.

There are some limited availability flavors which are produced in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey by Pepsi-Cola/National Brand Beverages, and are distributed in southern New Jersey, Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, and eastern Maryland. These include: Pineapple Canada Dry, Peach Canada Dry, Black Cherry Wishniak, Island Lime and Wild Cherry.

Also, there are some locale-specific brands, and these include: Canada Dry "Dry" Ginger Ale (available in Japan), Canada Dry Cola (available in Syria), Canada Dry orange soda (available in Iran), and Canada Dry Cream Soda (Limited availability in US, UAE and Kuwait).

So next time you're feeling under the weather, or even if you're just thirsty, grab yourself a cold, refreshing Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Or try one of their many other products!
