Diet Coke is great (if it was good enough for John Calvin . . . ).

But, Diet Dr. Pepper is the least "diet aftertaste" beverage on earth (honorable mention to Barq's diet)

At the reference desk, I actually had this question...Whatever happened to Blue Pepsi ... and found this interesting site...Dead Sodas

I still think Coke now doesn't taste like Coke did before the New Coke/ Classic Coke switch....

I sound addicted, don't I?
You know why don't you? They switched from cane sugar to corn syrup at that time. If you have a mexican grocery store nearby (there is one a block away from me, here in Indiana lol ) you can get real Coke in glass bottles imported.
They still use real sugar and they are awesome. Just like before 1985 :)

Well, I drink soda maybe twice a year. I'm an uber health freak most of the time so I just don't feel comfortable drinking things like soda. But when I do, I love Dr. Pepper most if I don't have the option of mixing sodas. If I do have the option to mix, such as at a soda fountain, then I have a little bit of most of the soda options.

Oh and I voted Coke but RC is a close second while Pepsi is not fit for human consumption.
Also, I should note that mexican Coca-Cola is the best, or from any other country that still uses real sugar.

Diet Dr.Pepper are enough to liberate one from the clutches of hfcs, which is of the Evil One.

Come on, Texans! Where's the Dr. Pepper fans?
Ironically, I never liked DP at all until a friend of mine brought back some from Dublin TX where they still use cane sugar. I loved it.
So then I go to Taco Bell and get a DP out of the fountain and it was awful.
It is amazing how much of a difference the sweetener makes.

Does the unfitness of Pepsi have anything to do with Mormonism?

Mexican Coca-Cola
I missed this one, I agree totally...I wonder if the store down the street that has it is still open?

I was unaware of the connection, but that might explain the inferior flavor.

RIght now I have RC in the fridge, it is a little cheaper than Coke but still decent.

Where is the love for the clear drinks? Sprite and 7UP are the best, most refreshing drinks in the world. Now if they only had caffeine, then they would be popular here.

Srpite and 7Up are both good as well as Squirt, One mexican store has mexican Squirt and that is really good.

I already voted to Barqs, and I'll stick with it, but if anyone ever gets to central Texas, be sure to look for the Dr Pepper made with real sugar. Both the Dublin and the Temple bottlers put it out in glass bottles. Temple also has it in cans. (At least one of the Wal Marts north of Dallas stocks the Temple version at about $1/bottle in 6 packs).

As a recovering pepsiholic I now drink Schweppes Ginger Ale or Canada Dry when Schweppes is not to be found.

Since giving Pepsi up when ever I have some it taste really bad.

Pepsi Cola went to town
Coca Cola Shot him down
Dr. Pepper Fixed him up
and they all got drunk on 7-up

Why isn't Jones Soda on the list? :D
Simple- I never heard of it. Have you a link or testimonial to educate the ignorant masses with?

Theognome


You've never heard of Jones Soda??? That's so sad....just kidding :)

Welcome to Jones Soda


They have unique flavors, especially around Christmas time. Although one thing I saw the other day that was disappointing was a Jones Soda bottle with Obama's face on it, and the flavor was "Orange You Glad For Change Cola" :barfy:

But their soda is pretty good. :D

So, Dr. Pepper doesn't have HFCS?
No diet drink has HFCS. Almost all non diet drinks have HFCS in them. Very rarely will you find a bottler who still uses cane sugar in the US. The Dr. Pepper bottler in Dublin, TX is one of the few left. There are a couple of others if you look for them. Or, you can go to your local Tienda Mexicana and buy imported drinks that have sugar. When I want a Coke that is where I go.

I'm a Pepper!
I can remember when it was hard to find east of the Mississippi and upon returning from a road trip we would always stop in West Memphis and go into a convience store an gulp down a Dr. Pepper.:sing:

I voted Coke but Dr. Pepper is a very close 2nd. I try not to drink sodas very often, I would prefer a sports drink like G2 instead.
