A-Treat Bottling Company is releasing a limited-edition Chamber Foundation labeled cream soda in late December 2023 and run for four months which will be distributed for purchase in Lehigh, Berks, and Northampton counties in more than 100 locations at major Lehigh Valley retailers.
A-Treat and the Jaindl family will donate 20% of the proceeds of the Chamber Foundation label cream soda to The Chamber’s Main Street Lehigh Valley foundation.
Main Street Lehigh Valley director Lorie Reinert said that monies invested improve the stability of our communities; improve existing or develop new civic, cultural, or recreational facilities or activities; assist with business retention, expansion, or attraction; support the creation of local jobs; and enhance the health, welfare, and quality of life of Lehigh Valley citizens. Each dollar invested has been leveraged 20 times for beautification projects like outdoor lighting, seating, gateway signs, landscaping, murals, parks and accessible playground equipment, supporting the chamber’s mission to improve the economy and quality of life in the Lehigh valley.

A-Treat president Dave Jaindl said by introducing the limited-edition Chamber Foundation-labeled cream soda, A-Treat® Bottling Company is not just offering a refreshing beverage but also contributing to the prosperity of our local communities. With 20% of sales dedicated to The Chamber’s Main Street Lehigh Valley foundation, we aim to support initiatives that enhance the well-being, culture, and economic vitality of the Lehigh Valley. Together, let’s build a stronger and more vibrant community for generations to come.
About A-Treat: With a history spanning nearly 100 years and three generations, A-Treat soda is a true Pennsylvania staple and a brand that has gained legions of devoted fans from all age groups and walks of life.
A-Treat soda is still produced with the same care practiced by Joe and Jack Egizio as they mixed up their first batches of A-Treat back in 1918. In fact, many of our flavors are still produced using formulas that evolved from the Egizios’ original recipes.
After a short lapse in production, the iconic A-Treat was bought by the Jaindl Companies in 2015. We look forward to keeping the longstanding A-Treat tradition alive for many years to come.
