IMO, Del Taco's Coke tastes best - I think it's because they use filtered water.

You are lucky you have a Del Taco

The one in Newark was the last in the Bay Area and closed this year.

Been so long since I've been to the golden arches, that I wasn't aware of this. But, we'll soon see what the "California price" is. If it's only $1, I'll be impressed.

Maybe you can get a combo meal and save money.

Burger King has coupons but I don't know McDonalds coupons are out there.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Rarely, about twice a year, I get some McDonald's coupons in our weekly junk mail. Burger King more often, about once a month, along with Del Taco, Wienerschnitzel, KFC, El Pollo Loco, Carl's Jr, Jack-in-the-Box....

It seems the only fast-food restaurants that NEVER send any coupons are Taco Bell and In n Out... So, I go to those places very rarely now. Stopped going to TB entirely since the second "great purge" of their menu last year -- they do seem like the most greedy and parsimonious fast-food conglamerate by far.

Whoops, for a monent there I forgot this was only a soda thread, but sodas ARE sold a FF establishments, so I guess this reply keeps it in that domain as well...

They all have apps with tons of coupons and deals. We just got a Burger King coupon flyer in the Sunday paper and it didn't have anything the app doesn't already have, which is plenty. Plus, the app has a rewards system so you'll get a free sandwich every few purchases.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Who has the best Orange Soda or do they all taste the same?

Fanta, Sunkist, Crush, or some other brand?

They're all pretty similar... But I think only one has any caffeine. If memory serves, Orange Crush has caffeine, so that's the one I'd choose every time. Actually, Orange Creme Soda >> Orange soda, because it has some vanilla flavoring as well as orange.

Sunkist has caffeine, Fanta and Crush do not.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Minute Maid was the best ... and it was my pre-game ritual when I played baseball.




Orange Slice was an acceptable substitute ...



Of course, neither exist these days.


I like my orange soda to have a little bite to it (as opposed to overly sweet). I kind of prefer Mountain Dew Livewire ... or at least I used to. I haven't had it in ages and I know most Dews are now WAY too sweet.

Speaking of Sunkist, I bought a 12 pack of these the other day. Not bad. Reminds me more of a Mtn Dew than Sunkist.

You just reminded me.. Mt Dew Live Wire, orange flavor was by far my favorite orange soda. I loved that it was very sweet, it tasted just like melted orange popsicles, and it had plenty of caffeine. It's been so long that I don't even remember the name of it (Fusion? Live wire?) I truly regret that it is no longer available, of couse.

I think Fanta Orange is the best or the one I have had the most.

Sucks that Minute Maid Orange is gone.

Slice was really good back in the day. I like Orange Crush too. Actually just tonight I tried an Sunkist Zero Sugar Orange Soda. It was okay. Not my favorite of the zero sugar variety sodas, but I didn’t have to gag it down or pour it down the drain.

It's real hot and I just flashed back on this which I had every so often in the late 70s and early 80s. It had an undefinable taste which was somehow very beguiling. I miss it now…

I wouldn’t mind if Pepsi brought Aspen back.

I grabbed the two new Dew flavors, Baja Flash and Baja Punch. Haven't tried them yet.

And after roughly a year and a half (pre-Covid) Mtn Dew Throwback (Real Sugar) has returned.

Now if only they'd bring back Dewshine.

Tried the two new Dews.

didn't like the fruit punch one. Tasted like Tang with a hint of fruit flavor.


The other one I liked.
distinct pineapple and coconut flavors.

Were the new flavors in 20-oz bottles, 12-packs, 2L bottles, or what? Where purchased?

I've seen the cans at Target, and the 20-oz bottles at gas stations.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

I'm guessing that the Baja Flash is sort of flavored like a Pina Colada in the same that Baja Blast is flavored like a Margarita?

Hated the Baja Flash. It says pineapple coconut on the can but it's 99% coconut. I can't taste any pineapple.

*edit - tried the Baja Punch as well - taste no different than any other given fruity generic limited Dew flavor. Better than the Flash, but I won't be rushing out to buy more before they're gone.
