My favorite is Diet Dr. Pepper, with Diet Coke a close (and I mean neck-and-neck) second. I like them both in a glass with ice.


What about you, Skippy?

I love Coke Zero (tastes closest to regular coke to me) and Coke Vanilla Zero and occasionally a regular Coke, yummy!
I do love it with a lime or lemon but that only happens when I go to restaurants and I am too lazy to cut up lemons at home.
When I am at home I love it from the 1 litter bottles poured in a glass with crushed ice.

Hi Ebree, thanks for asking!

I used to be addicted to coke. Then about 9 years ago, someone told me if I tried diet coke for a week, I would never go back. I hated diet coke, but after drinking it for a week, I found this to be true. I loved my soda with a lot of ice.

I stopped drinking coke in 2003. Mostly because while in Europe, beer was cheaper than than soda.
I decided coke was something I could live without and have been coke-free for 6 years. It''s been a good thing.

TGuy has made the switch to Coke Zero, which he loves.

I like regular Coke in a glass with ice. Love the bottled Coke, but you don't see that around here too often. Because of caffeine, I don't have it very often. I really love my Canada Dry Club soda, in a cup no ice, and very cold. No calories, no sodium, it's heaven.

Pepsi is definitely too sweet. I used to say I prefered coke because it''s more bitter, like me!

I never liked Pepsi, way too sweet. I''d rather drink water than drink Pepsi.

Oh that is how I feel about Dr. Pepper (an acquired taste). I wished I liked it because hubby and my family loves it, oh well.

I can drink Pepsi but I will chose Coke over it if given the choice. Oh Lisa, yes, caffeine keeps me awake so no soda with caffeine after 1pm or I can't sleep.


TGAL, I am like TGUY, I love Coke Zero; I also love the Orange Diet Coke in Europe, yum



Kama_S, have you tried Zero? it tastes closest to regular.

I agree with everyone saying pepsi is too sweet (I prefer Coke), but I really prefer cherry pepsi to cherry coke. I guess it needs the sweetness there.

That said I don''t drink very much soda.

I agree that Pepsi's too sweet, but my husband's a total Pepsi man. He used to drink a lot of Diet Vanilla Pepsi- talk about sweet!

It's been a long time since I've had a soft drink, but when I wanted something really sweet, I'd drink a Sunkist orange soda.

I am a serious Diet Coke addict :) I can''t live without it! I should know, I''ve tried...

When there''s no diet to be found, I will definitely grab a Coke, even though I generally think they''re too sweet. Pepsi is a total no-no... it''s not even that I don''t like the flavor, I just HATE how quickly Pepsi products go flat! I can hear my Diet Coke''s carbonation bubbling in the can for hours if I don''t drink it quickly enough.

I love Coke, of course! But I really enjoy a nice Diet Caffeine free Coke, mmmm! Or a tasty Fresca, but for the past maybe 3 weeks I''ve really been enjoying Gingerale. Is it obvious that I spent a lot of time with my grandma as a kid?

That's funny KatyWI. I didn't know Pepsi goes flat. Another reason not to buy Pepsi.

I forgot Storm is a huge fan of Pepsi. Oh well old habits die hard.... You go and enjoy your Pepsi Storm, but try my Canada Dry Club soda, pretty please?? It's good for ya!!!!

Pepsi still tastes great when flat.

I like regular Coke in a glass with ice. Love the bottled Coke, but you don''t see that around here too often. Because of caffeine, I don''t have it very often. I really love my Canada Dry Club soda, in a cup no ice, and very cold. No calories, no sodium, it''s heaven.


OH ME TOOOOOO!!! Love Canada Dry Club Soda. I put a wedge of lime in my glass. No ice for me either. I find it makes me burp though.


I rarely drink soda, but if I do it is Diet Pepsi. Again, I put a twist of lemon or lime in it, no ice.

My favorite drink in the whole world is Coca Cola (regular, in the can). BUT I only have it once or twice a month. Nowadays I get by with Schweppes seltzer. It has no calories, no sodium, and it does the trick to curb my soda itch.

Pepsi? It will do but it is a little sweet for my taste.

Me too, Coke Zero rocks! I like it very cold but no or little ice and I prefer drinking it from a glass but will drink from the can if necessary.

Does anyone remember ''OK'' cola?
vaguely, but not sure. We may have sold it in our store. I remember thinking JOLT! cola could not possibly be a good idea.

I remember drinking a lot of pepsi when I was a kid because they had some kind of bottle top promotion. Me and my bro were sure we were going to strike it rich so that was all we drank at my parent''s store. Even worse, when we were bored, we''d go back into the soft drink cooler (basically a room right behind the fridge shelves where customers picked up their software drinks) and start opening pepsi bottles from the stock trying to find the winning bottle cap. And then we''d SCREW THEM BACK!


I hope you guys CLEAN your soda cans if you drink straight out of them. Those soda cans are filthy, and I am not a germophobe.

Anyone notice how huge the can hole is compared to the good ole days?

Honestly - neither, not really a big fan of softdrink..now iced tea and juices, them I''m addicted to!
But, like Coati, if I do drink Coke, it should be regular and from a glass bottle and very cold! Than it''s pretty nice

Coati, never heard of it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OK_Soda was it good? or just ok?
Nope, now that I see it, it was way after the time where I regularly worked at my parent''s store. I do remember some kind of awful coffee coke that we sold. I''m not even sure it was awful, I was afraid to try it.

We sold Coke, Pepsi, RC and Tab (What WAS Tab, exactly anyway?)

I still think those Shasta soda commercials were one of the cheesiest ever.

Frankly, it was just OK. haha!

There were "deep thoughts" printed on the cans, and you could call a 1-800# to describe your experience with the cola.

Tgal--I''ve had my share of JOLT.
