It's all just sugar water ('sept for diet :sick:) What's your favorite. I gotta say good old, Coca Cola Classic is my favorite. Vault Red Blitz, and Fanta Pineapple are up there too.

Root beer was my favorite until I stopped tasting the root beer and started tasting the water :yuck:

Then it became cream soda for a little bit, and I went away from that.

After a while it was cherry and vanilla coke.

Finally i strayed away from sodas altogether and have either beer, red bull, coffee, or water.

Cola: Pepsi
Root beer: Mug
Citrus: Fanta orange (I'm also a fan of grape soda)

I've got a big soft spot for unusual energy drinks with cool looking cans. Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt and Turn Left are probably the strangest I've had so far.

And for all you Michiganders. . . The original, and the best ginger ale evar! If you've never had it your missing out. It has a fucking gnome for a mascot!

I used to prefer Coke, but since then, I've drifted towards Dr. Pepper.



Mmmm...

I don't really like fruit-flavored sodas, and I think (lemon &) lime sodas are disgusting. Cream soda is pretty good, however. Considering the beer-like appearance it has, I've been wondering what would happen if I drank it in a cup, in a public area, full of anti-alcohol-below-21 people.

It's the only drink I've found that doesn't have Sodium Benzoate as an ingredient.

I will though, on occasion, have an A&W Root Beer (since I've been caffeine free for almost 2 yrs. now).

Almdudler: You guys have no idea what you're missing out on here.



Bionade: Great since it isn't as sweet as regular soda and actually tastes like the flavour advertised on it. The perfect summer drink IMO. For some reason I like elderberry best.



I'm not really a soda fan though. It's too sweet and devoid of any flavour besides toothkillingly sugary. 99% of the time I go with carbonated water to which I add lemon juice. Now that's a proper drink.

Anyway if you live in the Pacific NorthWest you owe it to yourself to drink Thomas Kemper sodas. They used to be brewed here in the great metropolis of Poulsbo. Real soda with real sugar.

Pepsi, and only Pepsi, but I am going to kick the soda here shortly. I have 3 bottles of Pepsi left in my fridge, then after that its all water and homemade Lemonade.

How could I forget about that one? Actually, at the moment there are five empty bottles of Bionade "Litschi"-flavor standig next to my desk


edit: and I will give that lemon-juiced carboated water stuff a try, sounds good

How is the Fanta in Germany? Coca Cola bought it here and sells a pretty generic fruit soda, it's supposed to be amazing in Germany.

I have no idea to be honest. Can you send me a US bottle over for consideration? :mrgreen:

It's my cheap drink of choice. A bottle of Hitchcock lemon juice goes for 0.99? With that you can lace tons of bottles.
I never was a guy with a sweeth tooth though. If I have no carbonated water I drink tap water.

That's what keeps the price down.

It'll probably taste like shit. I don't know what's postage to the motherland?
