Glass bottles are much better than cans.

Real sugar is far better than high fructose corn syrup. For that matter, Pepsi Throwback is awesome. Though around here you can still get the Mexican Cokes in glass bottles, which is made with real sugar - double awesome.

PEPSI IS FOR COMMUNISTS

Sometimes I have these spans were I go drinking coke for awhile, and then Pepsi, vise versa. Personally I think Pepsi taste better, it has a better flavor, coke is still good, but I find Pepsi to taste more refreshing and not so sweet.

The Mexican Coke and Pepsi's in the glass bottles taste far superior to the U.S. Coke and Pepsi. It has a lighter taste and doesn't have any artificial ingredients, it's also more crisp. It's hard to find Pepsi in glass bottles, but I whenever Food For Less has them in stock around, i but like 10 of them!


I can't understand why both companies wont use the same ingredients that are in the Mexican bottles, and use it for our Pepsi and Cokes? Pepsi Throwback is the closest in taste to the glass bottles. The Throwback was only supposed temporary, but I guess so many people loved the flavor and taste, they forced Pepsi to make it permanent. I don't even buy regular Pepsi anymore, I only get the throwback,which doesn't have High Fructose corn syrup.

Coke hasn't even bothered with the whole "Real" thing. Coke used to be just real sugar, flavors, and water, they really need to get back to the original offering like the Mexican coke. Or give us an alternative like Pepsi has done for it's buyers. Not only does it taste so much better, it's better for you.

I enjoyed cane sugar Coca Cola in Thailand but I kind of missed the bitter bite from American corn syrup Coke. Its unfortunate that Coca Cola doesn't offer a "throwback" version of its own. Until then, the Mexican grocery store gets my business. :)


[Among diet sodas, I have to admit to enjoying Pepsi Max, despite its lack of carbonation]

Actually, if the Soviets had done a better job of publicizing there beautiful women, instead of their ugly missiles they may have had a better (and cheaper) chance at world domination!

But I surrender, Coke please!

As with this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if_V648W00k&NR=1I was expecting some epic videos that made the product m00t. Those commercials were awful. This destroys Coke campaigns? It only reinforces that Pepsi is so weak, they can't afford decent ads. Awful.

There's a Dr. Pepper bottler in Dublin, Texas that still bottles the original cane sugar DP recipe in GLASS BOTTLES. I'm sure any of you DP afficionados know that glass enhances DP's flavor.

Where I live, you mostly find RC in stores and only in two-liter bottles. Every now and again, you find a gas station that sells 20oz. bottles of the stuff.

I've always liked Dr.Pepper after enjoying it as a kid growing up in Pasadena, CA. Although I have to admit the description DP"s taste as "carbonated prune juice" isn't far off the mark. When I moved back East in the mid 1950's Dr. Pepper and RC Cola along with Nesbit's Orange were some of the things I missed on the East Coast.

I have long ago left the connoisseur-ship of soft drinks to others, although I occasionally get an urge to seek out "Guarana," a soft drink from Brazil, that was my all time favorite thirst quencher. The "Guarana" that is imported to the U.S., while similar that which I enjoyed in Brazil, is much sweeter than I remember variety I way back then.

Would this be the same guarana found in some Full Throttle drinks?

1) Coke > Pepsi. 2) High fructose corn syrup is not discernible from cane sugar in the body. 3) I get the Mexican sugar cane coke from the University in town. That stuff is the shit.

I assume that some of the specialty drinks offered as "Energy" drinks etc. contain the juice or extract from the guarana berry (which is found in Amazon region of Brazil). There is a component of the guarana berry that is chemically similar if not identical to caffeine. Drinking Guarana Antartica (a favorite soft drink in Brazil second only to Coca Cola) probably has the same stimulant effect of drinking caffeinated Coke. My 10 year old friends and I, along with several million Brazilian kids drank a lot of Guarana and to my knowledge never suffered any ill effects.

The medicinal qualities claimed by some groups are highly suspect and I would give them little credence as remedies for weight loss or as curative for other conditions.

Guarana Antarctica (now a Brazilian sub of Anheuser-Busch) is imported in to the U.S., Although as I said before this formulation seems sweeter than the Guarana of my youth!

I usually drink Diet Coke with Lime at lunch and like an occasional Dr. Pepper, but I really love this:

And it must be Canada Dry. Like Heinz when it comes to ketchup, there is only one brand of ginger ale.

One of my favorite soft drinks (not saying a whole lot...) isn't even sold in the US. The world of Coke in Atlanta has an area at the end where you can taste all different sodas from around the world. My favorite is Sprite Ice. It is such a deep refreshing flavor, I think they add mint? Either way it's almost like the refreshing lemon-lime taste multiplied by itself. Really awesome.

I ABSOLUTELY need to visit the World of Coke! Exotic sodas are a weird interest of mine.

Thankfully, the nearest international grocery store is an annoying 20 minute drive, so I don't waste as much money as I otherwise would on strange European and Asian concoctions.

There's hardly anything medicinal about these drinks. They merely serve as a last-ditch effort to stay awake during long night shifts. Otherwise, they're just sugar overloads.

You would enjoy it. There are probably over 100 different sodas to try. I went when I was 9, and I got the bright idea to mix all of the international sodas in one cup.

Let's just say I showed that Polar Bear just what I thought of him on the floor that day.
