As of December 1st, 2016 Sundrop was sold to Cheerwine. Sundrop Bottling Co has been bottling and distributing soda to the local communities for nearly 60 years, and the community is sad to see them sold. 

Cheerwine has stated that the cans will remain the same, but that the bottle heads will change from white or green to yellow. 

Distribution from Sundrop in local counties, Cabarrus, Iredell, Rowan, and more, will instead be sent from Cheerwine. Several people are being let go as a result of the transition.

Despite it's beloved nature, sources have said that the company has merely been breaking even for a while now, and needed to let it go as a result.
