Wow,so far I'm impressed by the selection you all like regarding this subject. There seems to be a majority of you saying you like some of the top name brands.Other stuff I have never heard of or have heard of but never have seen. There are a few that should be on my list but are hard to find like Dad's rootbeer or Hire's rootbeer. Keep them coming it's interesting to see what everybody likes. smile.gif

1. Tropical Sprite Remix
2. Dr Pepper
3. Coke Cherry
4. Mountain Dew Baja Blast
5. Pepsi Vanilla

Sunkist Orange / Welch's Grape pretty close.

I had 2 cans of Aruba Jam Sprite Remix arrive today. I won them off of ebay. They expired in October, but I'm still gonna drink one pretty soon. :D One of them I'll keep for the sake of keeping it. I also got a couple cans of Pepsi Vanilla and 2 2-liters of Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash in my soda stash (just in case they don't bring it back out, ya know). :cool:

1. C2
2. Coke Zero
3. Cherry Coke Zero
4. Mello Yello
5. Caffeine Free Diet Coke

Unfortunately C2 doesn't see fountain use much so the suppliers see that as me mixing at the fountain.

I actually like Dr. Pepper higher than Coke but Dr. Pepper is a decade behind in the C2/Coke Zero strategies. Give me a C2 version of DR. Pepper and I'd put it on the list.

Finally no HFCS only drink will make the top of my list. Change the corn syrup to cane sugar and suddenly C2, Coke, Dr. Pepper, and even Mello Yello get a lot better.

Dr Pepper "is a decade behind in the C2/Coke Zero Strategies." I have to disagree and say that have been in that strategy for some time.

Diet Dr Pepper is the no calorie version of Dr Pepper. Tastes more like Dr Pepper....Give you the C2 version...get a 12 pack of Diet Dr Pepper

Well...here it goes...

1. Barq's root beer (Coke distributor in my county IS SUPPOSED to carry it, but have to drive to Danville VA where the plant is to actually buy it!)
2. Big Red (not available here at all)
3. Vault
4. Jolt Cherry Bomb (have to have one whenever I work 3rd)
5. Strawberry Lime Jones

I know...an eclectic mix. I actually do drink some pepsi products, but they're not in my top 5. I guess I'm more of an indie drink type of person...heck, I'm still one of the few that prefer Mistic over Snapple.

1. Mountain Dew (so tasty)
2. Cane Sugar Pepsi (despise the HFCS version)
3. Polar Creme Soda (or hell, any creme soda)
4. Cherry RC (I crave some BAD)
5. Coca-Cola Classic (the classic)

I love Cane Sugar Pepsi over Cane Sugar Coke. But when it is HFCS, it is the OTHER way around, so I prefer HFCS Coke over HFCS Pepsi, which is hard to drink nine times out of ten.

Hmm....

Dr Pepper and Coca Cola have always battled it out for #1 with me. Alas, I'm dieting - and have been for a year now. So that tinkers with the top 5 a bit:

1) Cherry Coke Zero
2) Diet Berries & Cream Dr Pepper
3) Diet Dr Pepper
4) Coke Zero
5) Black Cherry Fresca

You are dreaming if you think

Ingredients: CARBONATED WATER, CARAMEL COLOR, ASPARTAME, PHOSPHORIC ACID, ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL FLAVORS

is as good as

Ingredients: Carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, aspartame, natural flavors, acesulfame potassium

The Ace-K (aka acesulfame potassium) alone makes a huge difference in taste.

If Dr. Pepper would add Ace-K to the mix on the diet side it would be an improvement. If they did that for the caffeine free diet it would be enough to steal all my caffeine free business away from Coke as Coke doesn't currently sell a caffeine free coke zero.

If Dr. Pepper would switch to cane sugar for their main drink I'd drink them occasionally. If they made a C2 equivalent of Dr. Pepper but used cane sugar instead of HCFS I'd even be willing to pay a small premium for it.

If you think the 23 flavors of Dr. Pepper make the choice of sweetener a non issue you either don't have the taste buds to tell the difference or just haven't paid attention.

Misticman: You live in some nice country. My family used to have a lake house on Hyco Lake just south of Danville. If you want to work out a trade, i could send you some 12 packs of Barq's in exchange for some Cheerwine.
