(yeah good work, virgin)
what the hell is this?
That seems to have gone away
this is a thing now?
one of the guys i was hanging out with bought it, took one sip, then gave it to a tramp who downed it in one. 750ml. downed in one. followed by the greatest burp i have ever heard
Yeah, I went there.
I love Cherry Coke but I don't like to drink the full sugar stuff often. Diet Cherry tastes horrid so if there's now a Zero version I'll be very happy.
worst thing ever. tastes the same as tesco value
as Diet Cheery Coke. EURGH.
but only by import. I got some from Cyber Candy in Islington a few weeks ago. 3 cans for £5 :(
whilst watching trans world sport eating start
Is it cola based? I think it's a contentious one
W.W. Clements, a former CEO and president of the Dr Pepper/7-Up Company, described the taste of Dr Pepper as one-of-a-kind, saying "I've always maintained you cannot tell anyone what Dr Pepper tastes like because it's so different. It's not an apple, it's not an orange, it's not a strawberry, it's not a root beer, it's not even a cola. It's a different kind of drink with a unique taste all its own."

full fat coke is better. but then if I'm going to be drinking coke it'll be at my desk, usually after lunch. and drinking full-fat coke then sitting there all afternoon with a sugary mouth isn't pleasant.
yes, I know this post reads like a morning thread contribution but hope this explains things!
except its obviously marketing pish. it tastes just like cherry cola
LITERALLY just walked right past that place.
Coca-Cola executives announced the return of the original formula on July 10, less than three months after New Coke's introduction. ABC News' Peter Jennings interrupted General Hospital to share the news with viewers. On the floor of the U.S. Senate, David Pryor called the reintroduction "a meaningful moment in U.S. history".
coke or pepsi thread.
It's obviosuly coke. But really, they're both shit.
I don't like cola, really. I'll drink the diet stuff as a mixer, but I'd never say OOOOoooh I could really go for a glass of coke. People that order pints of coke in pubs really upset me.
tastes of almond innit.
It reaffirmed Coke as the pre-eminent soft drink across the globe (would Pepsi have had that response?) Of course, people suggested this at the time. As on of the execs put it: We're not that dumb, and we're not that smart.
agreed on the cherry 7up shout
small coke with my lunch? no thanks, i'll have a pint.
coke's okay but i'd never fancy more than a can of it at any given time. orange juice and lemonade is about the best on offer.
any more since I moved to't big smoooke. Fucking £8.70 or whatever it is. I'd rather have a Fruli enema.
why thank you sir
was the Fentawhatsitmacalled lemonade, which was vile. I think we know what the moral of this story is.
it's alot tougher than i remember
me a diet coke!
I'm not wrong.
Remember all of the other drinks I had, though? All my decision. All amazing.
a pint of manly ale instead.
GIVE ME TWENTY, YOUNG BAR TEND!
except that it's not really cola-based
Awesome.. but unfortunately rare. Tesco in Covent Garden always used to have it.
Soooooooo sweet. Incredible stuff.
Afri Cola http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afri-Cola
and tired at your desk 45 mins later.
because it tastes quite a lot like cola, and it's black. It was really only a year or two ago that I learnt of my error.
And, really — merlot? Cab Sav, tyvm.
You big girl's bras.
i've not really settled on a favourite red ...
used to sell flat cola in what looked like a yoghurt pot. like a precursor to panda pops. anyone remember this?
Even as a seven-year-old I could tell they were designed to be drunk by someone of a lower class than me.
people are mental, it's the clear winner
Drink a 2litre bottle and find out for yourself.
That's literally insanity.
oh, okay hyg thinks i'm a peasant :(
actually i'd have said that they were more likely to have been drunk by kids of middle class leftie parents who thought that coke was part of the evil empire. the same sort of kids whose parents refused to buy their kids nike trainers. oh, okay that's pretty much my childhood :(
The important thing is that the aspartame-lovers are in the overall minority.
It's surely impossible for anyone to prefer Diet Coke. Literally impossible.
I admire your commitment. Personally:
Coke Zero > Diet Pepsi > Diet Coke > Pepsi Max > Raditude
cheap and nasty they were.
Diet Pepsi > Diet Coke (=Coke Zero) > Pepsi Max > Caffeine Free Coke > Diet Cokes with Lemon/Lime > Pepsi > Coke > Coca-Cola Vanilla
Can > Glass bottle > Plastic bottle > A goat's rotting carcass > Tap thing at bar
You spit in the face of decades of sweetener tech development, sir
I genuinely thought they were essentially (give or take) the same thing, just that Zero is marketed towards blokes.
glass bottle > can > plastic bottle > tap
Zero is a huge improvement, I was shocked. I fucking hated that first ad campaign they did too.
LIKE A STAG NIGHT WITHOUT THE WEDDING. What.. a fucking tragedy?
god, I bet they like Dr Pepper too.
used to love the stuff
it does in afflecks palace
Look like i'm the only one.
Along with Cherry Dr Pepper.
Wait, did that happen?
So true, and I have a picture for glory.
except ice poles kicked ass.
