    Coke is no.1 for me too, but as a Carolina girl, I also have to put in a vote for Cheerwine! SO GOOD.

    Does milk with Ovaltine or Honey count?

    I have been seeing that the stores near my neck of the woods have been carrying mexican Coca-Cola & Pepsi in glass bottles.

    I had a mexican Pepsi with my lunch today. 12 ice cold ounces in a glass bottle. It hit the spot.

    Depends where I am. If in a place that only has Pepsi products, I'll have Mt. Dew, Sierra Mist or water. All other times I switch between Coca Cola and Dr. Pepper (or Diet Dr. Pepper).

    Has anyone ever tried IRN BRU?
    [​IMG] Scotland's best soft drink. OK, the only soft drink from Scotland that I've ever had. Pretty interesting stuff.

    I enjoy the Throwback products by PepsiCo. Mountain Dew Throwback and Pepsi Throwback are both very good and I prefer Pepsi Throwback to regular american Coke. I have never had mexican Coke and I wish more softdrink companies would start offering real sugar varieties as a constant product version.

    If there's no hooch in it then no.
    I'm working on arranging a Ginger Beer tasting, which should be fun.

    That does sound fun! I love Ginger beer - either neat, or mixed with a good spiced rum, whiskey, or gin.

    My favorite soft drink is Vernor's Gingerale. It's got to be Vernors. I was in Tennessee in October and bought a 12oz. glass bottle of Coke out of a vending machine, made with sugar instead of HFCS. Very good, reminded me of the good taste of Coke when I was a lad. But all in all, give me Vernors.

    Dr. Pepper or Cream soda for the occasional carbonated treat. By far, my favorite is fresh brewed ice-tea - straight. If it's a good quality tea, no need for lemon or sugar!

    I love Fentiman's ginger beer and their dandelion and burdock, too. But my very favourite drink at the moment is Barr's cream soda with raspberry which (as a fan of the Roald Dahl book The BFG) I refer to as 'frobscottle' as it is so very yummy... The bubbles don't fizz downwards though :(

    Anything Barr's make is top. Personally think that Coke is made from rotten snozzcumbers!

    That is why mexican coke is better... they use fresh, ripe snozzcucumbers.
