Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Question : Does anybody here like fountain "iced tea"? I'm a big iced tea drinker but will only get the brewed stuff. To me whatever that brown liquid coming out of a fountain is, it certainly has nothing to do with iced tea. Doesn't taste even remotely like it.

I know it’s not really iced tea, but I like the brisk iced, especially the raspberry.

Finally grabbed a Mountain Dew Sweet Lightning from KFC. I thought it was alright but not my favorite. Iím really not the biggest peach fan in the first place (at least of things flavored peach) and I found it a bit too sweet. Not awful but I wouldnít buy it if it was available at retail.

The only iced teas I've seen on the fountain are the fruit flavored kinds and they are sweet. I prefer to drink plain unsweetened black or herbal tea. If I drink hot tea, I put milk and sugar in it, but iced tea I never sweeten.

Count me as another fan of orange Vanilla Coke.

I like Arizona raspberry iced tea (and the lemon to a lesser degree), but donít really like the fountain stuff. I donít drink regular tea, though, so Iím not a good judge.

Found a new mystery flavor variety of Mountain Dew. Mountain Dew Voo Dew. Itís pretty damn good if you ask me. Iím not exactly sure what flavor it is, but it seems like some think itís an orange dreamsicle. Whatever it is though definitely good and a variety Iíd pick up again.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

I had one of those a couple weeks ago but couldn’t place the taste.
Had one today and it’s clearly orange creamsicle flavor.
I won’t be drinking anymore of these.

I had one last week. It was delicious. I thought it was rumored to be candy corn inspired(for Halloween). I could see orange creamsicle though. I'll have to get another.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

I thought it tasted more like some kind of a candy that I couldnít place. It might just be orange creamsicle/dreamcicle though. I didnít place it as that right away. Looked up what others thought it was.

Shit, the other day I had a SQUIRT...I forgot how good those are. I've been trying to get away from sodas and drink more sparkling mineral waters or flavored ones. I found Gerolsteiner Sparkling water with Apple and it tastes really good.

Yeah theyíre pretty good, the sprite lymonade they came out with recently reminded me of squirt so I started to get the ruby red version.

i would like to get into non artificial sweetener packets for water bottles; I was drinking some kool aid ones but ended up getting a kidney stone. I used to love the country time packets but they made those artificially sweetened.

We're big fans of Dinosaur Dracula in our house and we tried Mountain Dew Voodew last night after watching the review video. We're leaning on the Skittles-tasting side but do wonder if candy corn is part of the intention.

I know this sounds weird, but mix the ruby red squirt with Malibu rum ... it's super yummy!
