Here is a thought, Italian Sodas originated in the United States, not Italy. I suppose the reasoning behind the title "Italian Soda" is "One claimant to the introduction and increased popularity of Italian sodas is Torani: Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre brought recipes for flavored syrups from Lucca, Italy" (Reference: Wikipedia).
This is kind of a pointless blog, but I was sitting here during the lunch hour and wondering where Italian Sodas originated from. Mainly because I like Italian Sodas, yet rarely drink them and the title spurred me to think that they aren't even from Italy. So, there you have it.
