Cream soda is a sweet carbonated soft drink. Traditionally flavored with vanilla and based on the taste of a classic soda. A wide range of variations can be found worldwide. A recipe for cream soda—written by E. M. Sheldon and published in Michigan Farmer in 1852—called for water, cream of tartar, Epsom salts, sugar and milk, to be mixed heated, when cool mixed with water and a quarter teaspoonful of baking soda to make an effervescent drink, it was suggested as a temperance drink preferable to those of "Uncle Bacchus" and in compliance with the introduced Maine law. Alexander C. Howell, of Vienna, New Jersey, was granted a patent for "cream soda-water" on June 27, 1865. Howell's cream soda-water was made with sodium bicarbonate, sugar, egg whites, wheat flour, "any of the usual flavoring materials—such as oil of lemon, extracts of vanilla, pine-apple, to suit the taste" before drinking, the cream soda water was mixed with water and an acid such as tartaric acid or citric acid. In Canada, James William Black of Berwick, Nova Scotia was granted a U.
S. patent on December 8, 1885, a Canadian patent on July 5, 1886, for "ice-cream soda". Black's ice-cream soda, which contained whipped egg whites, lime juice, citric acid and bicarbonate of soda, was a concentrated syrup that could be reconstituted into an effervescent beverage by adding ordinary ice water. In the United States, cream soda is vanilla-flavored and is either clear or colored a light golden brown, but red, pink and blue are common variants. In some places in the U. S. where it is made on location in cafes, cream soda consists of soda water, vanilla syrup, cream or half and half.

It is a manufacturer and distributor of fruit-flavored sodas, ginger ale, drink mixers, spring water to customers in the northeastern United States, it is the largest independent soft-drink bottler in the United States. It markets beverages under its flagship brand, Polar Beverages, under the brands Adirondack Beverages and Cape Cod Dry. In addition to its own drinks, Polar bottles and distributes national brands such as A&W, Sunkist; the company has six distribution facilities. It is a fourth-generation, family-owned business that traces its roots to 1882. Polar was founded by Dennis Mark Crowley; the business began in the 1880s as a liquor company. In 1916, the company took on the Polar name. Polar stopped selling whiskey and began selling carbonated beverages like waters, ginger ales and drys. A polar bear named Orson has been the company's mascot since 1902. Next to the company's billboard near I-290 in Worcester, there is a large inflatable version of Orson, which can be seen smiling and "waving" to passersby.
The oversized bear is tied down by wire, to keep the bear in place during rough weather, to prevent theft. Orson has sometimes been stolen by local fraternities as a prank. In 1994 Polar made a TV commercial where a polar bear considers drinking a Coca-Cola, but throws it into a recycling bin marked, "Keep the Arctic pure." The polar bear reaches down into the freezing Arctic water and pulls out a can of Polar Seltzer and drinks from it contentedly. Coca-Cola filed a motion for the injunction against Polar in United States District Court in Boston contending that the commercial made Coke's product appear impure; the US district court granted the Company's motion because the commercial "implied that Coke not pure", misrepresented the nature and quality of Coke, thereby harming the soft drink irreparably. The injunction handed down required Polar Corporation to revise the ad. According to Polar, the judge's ruling affirmed the right of Polar to use a polar bear in its ads, but limited them from discarding the Coke can.
