  • Have you tried a Polly's Pop?

    Polly’s Pop in Independence bottles artisan soda flavors with cane sugar and plenty of nostalgia.

Today, the antique machinery is maintained by Michael Hahn and churns out nine flavors — including pineapple and black cheery — bottled in a former Western Auto on Maple Street.
