What manner of soft drink do you prefer?

I've often found that Coke goes best with most "junk" foods, mainly hamburgers/cheeseburgers, pizza, fried chicken (although sweet tea goes good with that as well), and other similar rapidly-prepared gastrointestinal atrocities. Sweet tea just doesn't cut it sometimes. You have to have the carbonated water with artificial flavoring to help offset the fatty-greasy goodness.

Funny story, I would actually agree, but I would substitute orange juice. This stems mostly from the fact that I used to drink milk with everything (and I do mean everything), but found out that I basically had to start severely limiting my lactose intake due to my asthma, so I switched over to calcium fortified OJ, and now I can drink it with just about everything (the same way many people can drink coke/pepsi).
Totally not a hypothetical...

And for me go ahead and substitute "rum" for "orange juice." Ahem.

Bit of an old thread, but I voted Coke over Pepsi, even though to me it's choosing the lesser of two evils. I honestly like the carbonation in Coke more than Pepsi. Texture is a big factor in what I consume.

My favorite fizzy drink is San Pellegrino Limonata. 12 percent pure lemon juice which makes it nice and sour :mrgreen:

Coke made with pure cane sugar in a glass bottle, tastes so much better than the common high fructos variety.

My roommate and I go a taqueria up the street that sells 'Mexican Coke', which is essentially Coke that's bottled for Mexico. It's a Liter (Litre? I think Litre, actually) and in a glass bottle, and he (and a number of other friends) claim that it's much better than American Coke. Any idea if this is similar to the Coke mentioned by niko?

Yes, it is. I think I made reference to the Mexican Coke back on the first page. You can even order it online here, if there isn't a taqueria close by, or if there is one, they don't sell Mexican Coke.

Mmm, I was able to get "real" Coke in Central America (the kind made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup), and hot damn was it tasty. 'Course, the clerk usually insists on putting it in a bag if you're not going to sit down to drink it right then and there, which sort of ruins the magic.

We have coke as close to on tap as you can in a domestic home: a constant supply.

We buy 8 2L bottles every few weeks.

I think Jones Cola Cream Soda probably trumps everything on my list. I can't really stand Coke nor Pepsi, and many sodas make me rather ill. Brio (Italian chinotto soda) is really tasty, and Grace pineapple soda is like sunshine in a bottle. Occasionally I'll indulge myself with a Dr. Pepper, although this is fairly rare.

Coke, because of Cherry Coke. I've had a life-long fascination with that. Mostly though, I drink cheap knock-off brands because I don't really care that much.

If for some reason I really need the caffeine...it has to be Irn Bru. Sweet, fruity and a recommended hangover cure. So I'm told...

Well, if we are talking USA soft drinks, i'll go with Dr Pepper, but it is really difficult to find in small towns in Mexico. But what I really enjoy are a whole bunch of Mexican sodas, which typically don't have caffeine, so they are potable after dark. There are different types of apple flavored sodas, some that actually use apple in them, like Manzanita Sol. I also like Sangría flavored Señorial. I'll usually dilute these with a little water as they are too sweet by themselves.

Well, as far as cola goes, I have to say either coke out of the classic glass coke bottle (As the OP said), or BJ's generic brand cola. It is incredibly tasty for something so cheap, and my roommate and I have thusly dubbed it "crack-a-cola" because it is cracklike and we can never remember it's real brand name.

Actually, the whole out-of-a-glass-bottle thing reminds me... I used to work in a place on campus called the Rathskellar. Sort of a late-night eatery 7-11 convienence store type of place. Anyway, this one night, a girl came in and proceeded to buy:

- A glass-bottled coke
- A plastic-bottled coke
- A can of coke
- A paper cup of coke from the soda fountain.

She did so solely for the purpose of seeing if one was better than the others. Since me and the other cashiers thought this was hilarious and effing brilliant, we asked her to come back when she had the results of her taste testing. She did, and told us she had come to the conclusion that, in order from best to worst, they ranked:

1) Glass-bottled
2) Plastic-bottled
3) Canned
4) Soda fountain

Which didn't surprise any of us in the least, since I've seen the "coke syrup" they use in the fountain, and exactly where in the backroom we kept that part of the machine... not pretty. Very sticky.

They are different, but I tend to find them hard to rank. (although I'd pretty much agree with that order, except that I love coke in a can. Maybe just because it is most often ice cold from vending machines. Bottles don't seem to be.) Sometimes I really crave a nasty watered down post-mix Coca-Cola. Which is pretty much the only reason I'll visit a Maccas.

I'm also convinced that with the large plastic bottles (1.25 L, 1.5 L, 2 L) there is a slight difference in taste between them. This may be in my head.

Well, she was referring to the small, individual-sized bottles, like the kind you'd get out of a vending machine. We didn't sell the larger bottles there.

I don't know, I guess I got so used to the tste of bottles coke that the canned stuff just doesn't do it for me anymore. The can seems to add a slight twang to the taste...

Coke as pepsi tastes....'cheap'
Best out of a glass bottle, ice cold. Especially for waking up in the mornings; its better than coffee! (though I hate coffee, so...)
Soft drink because I live off the stuff (screw water; havnt drunk it for more than a month. Or cordial. Or fruit juice....Only a bit of chocolate milk....)

You know, I've been drinking mostly juice ($1 apple juice at the local Save-a-lot, whooo!), powdered drink mixes (Because they last FOREVER), and soda (That friends bring over, mostly). I just can't STAND plain water. I was never really raised to drink it, and now it bothers me to drink something that has no taste. o__o I know it's better for me, but it's like drinking cold, slimy air. Yergh.

@ ACU-LP: What exactly is cordial? I read your post and all I could think of was "cherry cordiak", but I can't put picture to the phrase... (And I'm too lay to google. Shame on me, I know).

Cordial is a concentrate flavour not-quite-syrup stuff....have you heard of ribena? its like the make it yourself one they have of that; a little bit of the concentrate liquid, and about five times as much water.
Also, I just cant stand the flavour of water (it tastes different in different places, but it never tastes good. Except for one place in the outback; wilpena pound. The water there...for some reason is delicious). Also, except for the water in that place, all water makes me feel ill and bloated.
Normally I drink cordial instead of water....but recently (despite it getting hotter here in Australia, I just havnt felt the need for it; I drink cordial when I need water / am feeling dehydrated).
Soda can be found so cheap (if you know where to look). Also, some of the no-name brands taste really good.

Like I said earlier, BJ's brand coca-cola is AMAZING. I really like it better than Coke or Pepsi. And the ONLY Publix soda I don't like is their black cherry soda, but then, I've only had one can, and it was warm...

Winn Dixie soda, however, largely tastes like crap. Especially their idea of "Mountain Dew Code Red". Tastes like cough syrup, but for half the price of MDCR, I'm willing to pretend otherwise.

I'm just curious as to how water makes you feel bloated. I drink three things at work: coffee, soda, and water. The only days I don't feel like shit in my intestinal region (c whut i did thar?) are the days I emphasize water.

Well, by the time I lose my foot, technology will clearly be advanced enough to give me a Skywalker-quality prosthetic. Or a floating jet chair. Whichever comes first.

After all, we're owed some technology, since we passed the dawn of the new milennium and didn't get the Jetsons-style flying cars like we were promised.

If, as a result of your default choice of liquid refreshment, you at some future point acquire any "Skywalker-quality prosthetic" or "floating jet chair", I will recant my above assertion as to your mental state.

But water is still delicious. And your soda is full of it.

I don't think water qualifies as delicious. It takes like vodka, which is to say that it doesn't taste at all if it's pure enough. Water either tastes like nothing or it tastes like impurities, neither of which are especially delicious.
That said, I do drink a lot more water than soda, but that's because, even after the price of a filter, it's a lot cheaper.

The definition of "delicious" does not requre the subject to have any particular taste.

I find both Coke and Pepsi nasty. The only sodas I can tolerate are grape soda and Sprite. And as been mentioned before, IZZE is pretty cool.

I'm watching you guys.

IZZE is pretty cool.


I'm a little disappointed; IZZE has always been fantastic. Now it has quietly become IZZE Fortified, and I haven't picked up any because I'm afraid it will taste like vitamin B. Can anyone assuage my fears?
