One less syllable, catchier...

We have this really cool machine at our Burger King, which (optionally) mixes any soda you select with Cherry, Lime, Vanilla etc...

I don't drink soda as often as I used to but when I do, I prefer to have fountain soda rather than a can or a plastic bottle.

Who remembers "Jolt" cola?  All the sugan and twice the caffeine.

Loved Jolt!!  Used to drink it all the time.  Was the only soda made with real sugar at the time but now you can buy "throwback" Pepsi and get real sugar.

Mountain Dew and Coke.  Highly.addictive, worse than crack, seriously.  I am from the most unhealthy state, South Carolina, and my parents allowed me to drink it all the time.  I would throw a fit if I couldn't have it, and I wish they would have put their foot down and made me do without it.  It is the reason I can't and never will lose weight.  I can't go a single day without withdrawls. This is terrible, but I would physically harm someone if I couldn't have a soda.  I don't know got hard quitting drugs or smoking is, but quitting soda is impossible, if you've been drinking them as long as I have.  I went 4 months without a soda, last year, and I wanted to kill myself, because I was miserable. I think you get chemically dependent on them.

I drink a gallon of water everyday and try to eat lots of salad to dilute the sugar, and I do drink less, but if there really was a.God, he would answer my prayer to be able to quit forever.

I don't drink soda pop very often.  I prefer the unsweetened but flavoured seltzer waters.  That way I get my bubbles but none of the sugar.  I don't do artificial sweeteners or high fructose.

I gave up the sugary stuff a couple of years ago, and been working of getting off it altogether.  But I still dabble in the black arts of Coke Zero.

As an ex Detroiter, it was always "pop".  As kids we drank Atlas (local Detroit brand in the 50's) or got pop from a Towne Club  "bottling outlet", which was nasty tasting slop.

As a teenager I was addicted to Coke and the good old local products, Vernor's Ginger Ale and various Faygo flavors.  Nowadays it's various flavors of Publix diet sodas, but with Passover coming, I'll be hunting down the special yellow capped 2 liter bottles of  Coke Classic marked as Kosher (made with sugar as opposed to HFCS.)  I will not touch most other diet sodas as they have aspartame in them.

That is one more drink than I would have tried :)

I usually just drink plain old Coke .. at times too many of them.  I tried Coke Life, which is not too bad (made with stevia and sugar instead of corn syrup).  Pretty good and 40-ish% less calories
