Re: Worse Pop you've ever tasted?

When I visited Canada several years ago, we went to an Italian restaurant and I got a glass of thsi Italian cola, but I can't remember what it was called. I'm wanting to say it started with a "c". Anyway, it was so foul, I had to send it back with the waitress and get a real cola to replace it. I don't think I was expecting Coke, and I like trying new things, but this was like sewage in my mouth.

It's cool as far as history goes but the actual drinking of it is a different story.

Maybe not the worst but Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi are some of the foulest things that are popular.
It used to be a man's drink, you might want to move on to simplah pastures, flatlandah. But now, unfortunately...

This. Moxie is essentially owned by Kirin Brewing (through Cornucopia beverages -> Coca Cola Bottling Company of Northern New England ->Kirin Brewing)

I grew up as a soda heretic in the land of pop.

Actually Jolly Rancher did put out some sodas. I bought some at Big Lots once.

Agree. Pepsi Max and Coke Zero are both great! I also drink DP, Mountain Dew and cherry Coke. I even like Diet Dew. The only soda I despise is Root beer. Hate that stuff.

The fact that you would call it that just shows that you're not ready.

Was probably an aperitivo bitter, something ridiculously bitter to clense the pallet for the meal. In my theory, they give you something that tastes so bad you can't help but appreciate the meal. That's what Beverly is too.

That is so true but I wouldn't call it a soda or pop, it's actually an alcohol free beer.

Kleenex
Popsicle
Q-Tip
Styrofoam
The problem there is that with those brands, the "real" products are very close to, if not indistinguishable from, the competing brands. Many don't even know that some of those are actual brand names, let alone care if they get the "real" brand or an off-brand.

Soda, or pop, for some of you, is different. People are very particular about the kinds they like, and know full well what they want to order. So to associate a brand name (and, in the context I've known, a distinct flavor) with all soda seems odd to me. It's not like Popsicle, which implies no specific flavor.

I forgot about the flavored Cokes....yeah, I can't stand Vanilla nor Cherry Coke.

As for diet soda, I used to be the same way. Yeah - Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi are vile. But I love Coke Zero and Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale. I really wish bars and restaurants would switch their diet cola fountain option from Diet Coke to Coke Zero.

Jolt cola. Though when I was a kid drinking it, it wasn't for the taste. It was for the huge sugar and caffeine buzz I'd get after drinking a can/bottle.

Re: Worse Pop you've ever tasted?

I am a soda fiend at heart, so I will try just about any new soda that I see... ever. Now I look for any of the various "diet" ingredients before I blindly buy and drink a soda because I've been burned a few times by that. I can't drink anything with that aftertaste! Anyway, I've tried many, many different flavors and brands of soda, and there are just so many bad ones out there. I would have to say that the Jones Thanksgiving dinner sodas were outright disgusting. Another that I find many places is Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray... it is celery flavored, and pretty weird.

That's very odd. I grew up in Waukesha and then Whitefish Bay. They're not Kenosha but I always thought I was in southeast Wisconsin. My father was even part owner of a "pop" factory in Waukesha (we were the first Dr Pepper bottlers in Wisconsin as well as having our own brand). I and everyone I knew called it pop. I hear it a lot less in Madison. I even get laughed at sometimes when I say pop.

In the interest of research, I had Pepsi and milk today.

Meh. It was okay, nothing special.

Re: Worse Pop you've ever tasted?

To the OP: I love Big Red.

Based on the map a few pages back I see two things
1- Alaka should make up their mind
2- Everyone living along the borders of each state is in white, but the map does not state what white calls soda/pop/coke. So what does white stand for?

Central Indiana and I call the drink all three things

Worst Drink: Japanese coke

Everyone in Alaska is from everywhere else with very few 3rd or 4th generation residents. I heard all three growing up but mostly "soda" or "coke".
