    Default What is your favorite soda

    I am a soda addict. Have been all my life.

    I have cut back, but I literally have the shakes if I do not have one soda a day.

    I am not really into caffeinated sodas. Pepsi and Coke are not my style.

    I like fruit sodas usually; though I am not given to Mountain Dew too much.




    Wawa's is a chain in America.


    The Wawa soda is a generic form of Tahitian Treat



    Either one is good.

    Love the stuff since I was a kid.

    Modern Soda was invented in Ireland around 1851 with the invention of Ginger Ale; but it was mostly a curiousity.

    However, we Americans took over soda after that. We made it popular.

    We control the vast majority of the world's soda markets. However, other places had odd local brands.

    So post them in this thread.

    So what is your favorite soda.

    Some soda facts. Fanta was invented by the German subsidiary of Coke during WW2. Out of touch with America, a German concocted a syrup to replace what was cut off during the war. It became popular in Germany. It was re-acquired by Coke after the war.

    But the Fanta in America is not the same formula used by the Germans. We have access to fruit juices that the Germans did not have.

    The chief difference between Coke and Pepsi.
    Coke has more bubbles/Carbonation
    Pepsi has more sugar

    There is, however, a pocket of resistance for Pepsi around the world. A few of the Canadian states prefer Pepsi over Coke, especially the French-speaking areas, as do a few small pockets of the States, such as Utah and North Dakota. Pepsi also has dominance in the Caribbean country of the Dominican Republic and Guatemala in Central America. In the Middle East, both Oman and Saudi Arabia prefer Pepsi, while in Asia India and Pakistan, mainly thanks to the sponsoring of their cricket teams, have higher sales for Pepsi.

    To me the debate is meaningless. I prefer fruit sodas.

    I do not like Sprite (too sweet) or Sierra Mist (too weak)

    7up is great though




    In the end American sodas really rule; but most countries have one great local brand.




    Not for me. I do not like Islam and I am not fond of colas.

    Caramel coloring chemical linked to cancer found in "too high" levels in some colas

    Consumer Reports is warning the caramel coloring that gives cola its brown hue may be dangerous in the levels its found in some popular soft drinks.
    “There’s no reason why consumers should be exposed to an avoidable and unnecessary risk that can stem from coloring food brown,” toxicologist Dr. Urvashi Rangan, executive director of Consumer Reports’ Food Safety & Sustainability Center, said in a statement.
    Researchers at the magazine tested dozens of cans and bottles from a variety of popular brands looking for levels of the artificial chemical used for coloring, 4-methylimidazole (4-MeI).

    Previous studies of 4-MeI have found long-term exposure to the chemical caused lung cancer in mice, according to the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. That prompted the state to add 4-MeI to its list of potentially toxic chemicals under Proposition 65, which requires warning labels on products containing concerning levels of the chemical -- in this case 29 micrograms of 4-MeI per can or bottle.

    Does not apply to me. I am not big on colas.

    So I do not imbibe a lot of caramel coloring.

    Still, doesn't everything cause cancer?

    Empty calories makes Jack a fatboy. Just purchased a new Vitamix 5200 green smoothies for the next 50 years...and yes we go the distance in my family.
    However, as a teenager in Tacoma Park Maryland working as an Air Conditioner Refrigeration Mechanic helper I discovered at the Electric Maid Bakery the great in the glass bottle Venors Soda, Ginger beer would be second and Coke sold outside the USA made with Sugar not garbage sweetener third.

    Soda is pretty hot commodity and as my ex would call it Pop.
    But it's awful for you better off with cold water run through a filter clean drink and not after effects.
    Who would claim to be that, who was not.

    If you wish to render seeds,skin, pulp, seems or the core of a pineapple into a smooth as satin drink you can do it, nothing else works as well all others are inferior and cannot do the job.

    juicer pain for cleaning but juicer only does juice and juice has no fiber and only a blender of this magnitude will completely breakdown fibrous vegetables, nuts and the rest plus all the other uses like making soup from vegetables or ice-cream ect. Juicer is rarely used everyday 3 times a day, these are.
