Now this website brings back many fond memories. My late father owned a neighborhood grocery store at the corner of 57th Ct and Flagler St., SW Miami, FL. It was called the Flagler Park Grocery. Dad would always allow me to invite my school friends to come with me to his store after school for sodas, candy, and/or comic books. He had a large Coca Cola ice chest that was filled with chopped ice and a variety of sodas. Among the drinks he sold were Pee Wees. I think they sold for a nickle apiece and there was no "deposit" for the bottles.The flavors I remember were: Orange; Lime; Cherry; Grape; and Strawberry. These were by far the very best fruit flavored drinks (aside from Nehi's) that I ever tasted. Trouble was they were so small (about 4oz) that after three gulps they were gone. Far too bad they are no longer available.

I used to live in North Miami Beach, and we used to get these all the time from a little grocery store on 163rd street in the 1960's. They were GREAT and only $.03. I miss them...

Watching College Football today reminded me of a time when I was around 4 or 5 years old. My father would pick up Subs from Mr. Glicks and bring my brother and I back Pee-wees from the Sub Shop.
All were very delightful. Subs, Pee-wees and College football with my dad and grandfather in Hialeah. I always comment about this little drink that was just my size, but never able to back up my memories, until now. Thanks. Kim

Pee-Weeeeeeeeeees! I liked the red ones! *^.^* I remember the store... It had an old, squeaky screen door that would slam shut with the spring hinge. haha Gee... someone mentioned 2 cents? Wow! I didn't remember that. All I know is that they were small enough to fit nicely into my little 3-year old hands. :)

Oh, and I Forgot to Mention, Pee Wee's were a Real Bargain, even if they were only one fast sip. They only cost, back then,---In the 50's; 2 Cents a Bottle. I would Drink, 5 at a time, for only a Dime !!!!!!!!

I Had my share, of Pee wee's, when I Was in Elementary School. Right next to Hialeah Elementary School, was A Candy Store, and I went there, all the time,and one of the things I always Had there, was Pee Wee's. They also Had Pee wee, at U-Totem Stores, and I Had them there. I Loved the Taste of Pee Wee, and I Remember, they Had ; Cherry, Grape, and other Flavors, and Ice Cold, They Were Great Tasting. What A Memory !!!!!!!

I remember this place on s.e. 8th st, just west of Lejune rd. . They bottled all the different flavors there. I really think it was just a lot of sugar with flavoring, not much brewing involved here. I do remember they were pretty good, but only about 5 oz. and my tounge would get sucked into the bottle.
