    Is there anything better in the world than
    ?
    I think not.

    It's the 9th most popular soft drink (non-Diet Dew is 3rd). Despite this, the local stores still stock it in quantities that would be more appropriate for the 39th most popular soft drink, and so I regularly have to go to two or three stores to get my fix. What the fuck, store stockers? If you constantly see a huge hole in your soda aisle, order some more and stick it on a fucking endcap.

    What's interesting is that they have subtly reformulated it a few times and actually improved it a little each time, contrary to most reformulating efforts that just fuck things up.

    FOCUS: What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink, and why?

    ALT FOCUS: Did you have a previous favorite that you don't drink anymore? Was it because the company stopped making it and now it's impossible to find, or you moved to a different area of the country and they don't sell it there?

    Frylock, what you tried to post (and failed to) looks more like this:

    Besides water and Timmy's coffee, this is the ONLY non-alcoholic beverage I consume. I couldn't even imagine facing a morning after, without my beloved grape G2.

    I assume you mean branded non alcoholic drinks, otherwise Id just say coffee since I drink a shit ton of it every day. I am a huge fan now of Coke Zero. I can go through a 12 pack in two days. But I get tired of pissing more frequently, particularly at night. There was a time where I drank Dark Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero but it was taken off the market. The Zero line is awesome. Sure it isn't the exact same taste as regular Coke but it is closer than Diet. I don't mind Diet Coke actually but prefer Zero. All the refreshing attributes of a Coke flavored soda drink with none of the sugar calories. Win Win. Here in Shanghai a single 12 oz can will run you between 27-35 cents a piece. You can find ones with the 70s style razor pull tabs too which is a cool throw back.

    Made from all-natural ingredients. Flavored with galangal, mustard seed, kola nut, ginger, coca leaf, corn mint, cardamom, and all kinds of other shit you've never heard of. A nuanced taste that quickly becomes addictive. Never leaves you wired or jittery, just puts you right on the edge of that alert awesomeness. Contains cocaine. Impossible to find anywhere nowadays. Because all the shopkeepers steal it for themselves. Because it will rock your world.

    This is my favorite thing to drink besides booze, especially in the morning. Anyone who knows dunkin donuts well will tell you that the coffee is either hit or miss depending on the place you go. Luckily I have a locale that makes it pretty well near me and I start almost every morning with it. I dont know if the chain is nationwide, but in the northeast D&D is a staple.

    Now that it doesn't taste like a cross between BBQ sauce and cough syrup.

    No question, farm fresh milk. In fact it is the only non-alcoholic thing I drink besides water and Mountain Dew (Mountain Dew only when I'm on vacation). It's in a different galaxy quality wise than that Hood bullshit and several leagues above even the best organic milk I've had. My GF normally only puts milk in her tea but she will chug the milk from the farm*

    [​IMG]

    *Crescent Ridge isn't the farm I live on and although it's very good milk it's not quite as good as where I am.

    I don't understand the American fascination with cherry flavoured everything. Tastes like off cough syrup with a tang of ball sweat

    Pepsi Blue made me believe that there is a god, and he wants us to be happy. Then it was canceled.

    I don't even know if this showed up anywhere other than the Midwest, and I don't remember it being around very long.

    I loved it so much I learned to recreate it at fast food places that have soda fountains. It's roughly 3/5 diet coke, 2/5 orange soda, and a splash of sprite. Delicious combo.

    Obviously, I can and do brew my own, but this brand of sweet tea is the best that I've found sold commercially. It's always a game to me to find places in town that have good tea. If they don't have good tea then I usually don't bother going back.

    Goes great with rum.

    Used to date a girl from NC. She/we would always load up on this shit on visits to her family.

    I haven't had a drop of it since. That is the only reason I have to miss her really.

    Mt. Dew blows. Haven't drank a drop of it in at least ten years.

    Citrus sodas meet the ultimate:

    The makers of Ski let an Orange fuck a Lemon and the creampie is harvested in bottles and cans. It is amazing.

    So <a class="postlink" href="http://www.myskisoda.com/online_store.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.myskisoda.com/online_store.html</a>.

    Also Cheerwine and Dr. Pepper are great.

    Pepsi Cola is an undrinkable shit beverage.

    First of all, this (though, in a can is the best):

    [​IMG]

    Following that any kind of chai tea latte, hot, cold, Starbucks, homemade, local coffee shop, whatever. I don't think I have found a brand or style of chai tea that I didn't like.

    This is generally only available if you live in Kentucky, but its the absolute greatest ginger ale you will drink. I promise. It has a little bit of a harder bite, more caffeine and a lot less calories.


    The best, is that you can buy it online now. You are welcome.
