Oh, I should add, I like all my soda best out of the can as opposed to the fountain, and I always try to get it with no ice if possible.

AND...my favorite types of soda are really Ginger Ale and Root Beer, however, I try to drink diet when I can, and although I''ve tried every brand of diet GA and RB, I haven''t liked ANY of them. It makes me angry that the soda companies don''t try nearly as hard to make good diet varieties of other flavors as they do of regular cola.

I don''t drink much soda anymore (too many chemicals, bad for your bones..) but- I used to!

I''ll definitely take diet pepsi over diet coke every time. I am not a coke fan, at all! But my whole family prefers pepsi, so it''s likely because that''s is what we were drinking for years. I loved Squirt when I was growing up, too!

Now, if I get soda- it''s always Fresca! Definitely my favorite. yum.

I don''t really drink soda, but I do love a Coke slurpee!! It''s always much better than the Pepsi slurpee... Pepsi just doesn''t freeze right!

The best drink in the world is Classic Coke out of one of the old-fashioned glass bottles. But for everyday, I like Coke Zero over ice, from a glass.

I am not crazy about soda, but would pick the regular Pepsi over Coke anyday. Then the regular Dr. Pepper trumps the regular Pepsi and the diet 7-Up trumps all of the previous. (diet 7-Up is the only diet soda I would ever drink) But my 2 favorite things to drink of all are lemon-ade and cranberry juice (Northland).

Diet Dr. Pepper from a can, or Sprite Zero warm from the can. I drink it warm because there are boil orders constantly in this town and there always seems to be a shortage of bagged ice in the freezer. My preference, though, is either one of the above over crushed ice in a glass with a straw so the ice hitting my front teeth doesn''t painfully freeze them.

Sabine you should try Ginger Beer. You can get it at the local bev wherehouse.... you can mix it with rum and it''s really good. Esp if you like the ''real'' ginger taste.

Whoever referenced Fresca, I love that stuff, but only Peach flavor!

Diet Coke ADDICT. Every morning since I was 16 years old - and I''m a purist, I won''t touch Diet Pepsi, or any of the weird flavored Diet Cokes, it has to be the real thing (clearly, I''m a snotty addict

). I knew it was bad when people I''d just met and was doing a weekly study group with start stocking Diet Coke in their fridge whenever I was coming over

I''m a Coca-Cola in a can girl.

I don''t like the bottles at all, only cans.

I''ve been cutting back, but it''s hard. I get headaches if I don''t get my coke fix.

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

Really?!! Ooohh, maybe I''ll get some when I go grocery shopping today!

I used to like C2 (coke product). It was a mix of regular coke and diet coke, so half the cals and the taste wasn''t all too bad. They stopped selling it, probably because they launched Zero.

Diet coke. In a can is fine if it's ice cold. If not, in a glass with ice and a straw. The straw is a must, I hate ice hitting my teeth.

If I'm at a restaurant and want a soda and they only have Pepsi products, I'll just get water. No compromising for me.

I love that one in the summer, YUM!!! Hubby loves Ginger Beer, Whole Foods and TJ's has a really good Ginger Beer.



LORELEI, I remember TAB when I was about 9 yrs old and wished I looked like that bathing suit beauty who drank tab.

Do they still make Slice? I use to like that; I would mix slice with sunkist. McDonalds make an orange drink that is yummy, I wonder what that is; I use to get orange drink as a teen.

I used to love the old Coke..the ''classic'', but before it was actually Classic! I feel old!


I don''t drink soda anymore, but I never understood drinking ''diet'' soda. Why not just drink tea or water with zero calories? It doesn''t taste like fake sugar! Then again I love the taste of the regular drinks so I just couldn''t fake it and love it for very long with diet. Though I do have to say the closest I have found to ''regular'' soda is Coke Zero. But then I think...gosh what is in here that I am drinking that is so fake it tastes realy?!
32.gif
Then I drink more green tea, hahaa.


My guilty soda pleasure is Pepsi from the Taco Bell drink machines. I don''t know what it is, I think they almost put more soda water than sugar or something because it''s not AS sweet, and it''s perfect over a huge 2/3 cup of ice. I could easily drink these daily!


Oh and love love love the original ''cherry coke'' which was coke and grenadine. YUM.

gosh i do LOVE a real cherry coke - coke + grenadine. yumm.

but to answer the original question, i don''t really do soda. but if and when i do, definitely coke over pepsi, in a glass with LOTS of ice. crushed ice if possible. [like the sonic ice, yum!] i hate coke out of a can. out of the glass it''s not as bad, but with ice is BEST, to me.

I rarely drink soda, but when I do I won't touch anything diet with a ten-foot pole. Cream soda is my favorite, followed by ginger ale, followed by regular Coke. Once in a long while, I do like a root-beer float. Other than that, I really don't like any other kinds AT ALL, and usually I'm satisfied after a couple sips of the kinds I do like -- it's all just too sweet for me. I do love seltzer, though, and Polar makes a vanilla seltzer that tastes like cream soda without the sweetness

. I could drink that all day long.

Haha, yeah, I used to think that too, but now I''m starting to realize diet and regular isn''t even necessarily about calories. It seems people just like one or the other.

But, hey... if diet soda make the big mac disappear, I''ll learn to like diet!

I used to order huge meals and always a diet coke. I never thought about the calories of coke. I just didn''t like regular coke. Plus, diet has more caffeine than regular so it was a nice pick me up after a big lunch

I stopped drinking soda when I got to college, for no particular reason really, just never thought to. When I tried it again (after about 2 years), I felt like my throat was being burnt off

Before then, though, I had a soft spot for root beer. Never really enjoyed any other soda.

I probably shouldn''t drink cola which we refer to as pop here in Canada but I can''t help it. I find it really refreshing and I''m still in school so when I am on the run sometimes I have to stop and the vending machine and grab a can.

Ok, I prefer Pepsi over Coke I find it sweeter and a bit less fizz but fizzy enough for me. And I also prefer Diet Pepsi over Diet Coke but I don''t mind Coke zero. If I have a choice I most enjoy Pepsi/Diet Pepsi in a glass with tons of ice but If I don''t have a choice I prefer in a can as it tends to stay colder in the can at least it seems so to me.

I used to LOVE diet vanilla coke but they took it off the market at least I think so b/c I can NEVER find it or they stopped selling it in Canada boo!
I also love orange Fanta which I used to drink when I was little but I think they don''t make that any more either b/c I never see it around.

Diet Coke with Lime.

Ahhhh.

But I stopped buying it because DH doesn''t drink soda and I''d just guzzle it, so I very rarely drink soda of any kind now since we tend to eat meals at home. I had a Diet Coke the other day and was surprised by how overly sweet it tasted to me.
