What is your fav.?I think for me its a tie between Mello Yello and Sundrop,cuz really most sodas like Mountain Dew,Surge and Vault are just break offs of Mello Yello(in my opinion).I think i'll go with Sundrop it has a natural lemon taste,that keeps wanting mor,But then there is Citra it is different from all smile.gif

Surge was good, Mello Yello is dang good too, Mountain Dew is good too, Mountain Dew Code Red is dang good! and Beat was so dang good, I wish I could tell the same of Vault but I haven't tried it...

Can I say Fresca... or Seagram's Ginger Ale :rolleyes: ?

I would have to say that Vault is the best. Mountain Dew is a very close second, and Mello Yello is very far behind those two. I haven't tried Sun Drop, and I only had Surge once years ago, so I don't really have much of a memory of what it tastes like.

Drinks like Citra, Fresca, et. al. have a different kind of taste than the sodas mentioned above, so I don't think they should be placed in the same category. If we're going to include them then we might as well include all the lemon-lime and orange sodas as well. And sorry Ramon, but Seagram's Ginger Ale is not a citrus soda in any sense.

Surge was and Vault is great. Besides that I like Mello Yello. Squirt is also great but its a grapefruit soda I think, so I don't know if that would fit in as a citrus. Mountain Dew is good too.

That's a test to see how much of a soda pop freak you are. LOL I never noticed the video as I'm too into chatting about citrus soda pop. LOLOLOLOLOLOL

The first time I saw that video, I thought I was on the wrong board. LOL I feel your pain. ;)

In college my roommates and I lived over a basement apartment. This Dude would play the same YES album, Owners Of A Lonely Heart; the base track would shake our floor like clock work at 7:30am.

After a month or so we asked them to at least change the record. LOL They told us to F off, so we called the cops and filled a noise complaint. LOL

Now my roommates and I loved loud rock and partied way too much but never at 7:30am. We also rotated our music. Once an album was played it was put at the end of our play stack. LOL

Dnl was awesome,but it isn't really Citrus it was tropical.

03-19-2006, 08:00 PM
1. SURGE or VAULT- too similar to really pick one over the other.
2. dnL- A great SURGE knockoff!
3. Citra or the slighly reformulated Fanta Citrus.
4. Kick
5. Squirt (though the Ruby Red is better)
6. VAULT Zero
6. Dew
7. Yello

How clever.

Thanks again Z-MAN!

Today I went to Lagos de Moreno, and I saw a 600 ml bottle of Beat (the mexican Mello Yello) in a food stand, but it was completely covered of dust and considering that Beat was retired from the market a year ago, so I decided not to buy it... maybe if I drink it a third eye could grow in my forehead... LOL

I think that's all the more reason to do it, Ramon. :D

I don't think she's actually saying Satisfaction...

03-20-2006, 05:39 PM
I don't think anyone really cares what the ladies are saying.
But their body language is definitely screaming, "SEXY!!!"

03-20-2006, 07:56 PM
GR, I have no clue. I pretty much ripped the avatar from a another memeber of a car forum that I'm also subscribed too.

That betty in the black shorts rips my hearts to shreds everytime I see her.

Are you sure it's your heart?

I'll leave it at that.


03-20-2006, 08:52 PM
Yeah DJ. But since everything's all connected, the pain from my heart sends a tingling sensation to my crotch, kinda like when I had to climb the rope in 5th grade gym class.

2. Vault

4. Citra/Fanta Citrus
5. Sun Drop
6. Mexican Fresca
7. Dew

I know I'm probably forgetting a few...

03-22-2006, 07:28 PM
Favorite citrus soda is probably Gokuri, a grapefruit soda I drank all the time while going to high school in Japan. As for American sodas, Vault.

Oh, and his avatar is from Benny Benassi's 'Satisfaction' video. Wendy's uses that song for one of their commericials ('Push me/and then just touch me/so I can get my/satisfaction'). Yeah, I've been a long-time lurker, even remember what old avatars look like...

I agree... :D Mexican Fresca Rocks!, although I miss drinking a yellow colored citrus soda around here :(

03-24-2006, 01:57 PM
What's "She" who saying? They stole the avatar away

03-24-2006, 02:00 PM
I had a very "sexy" signature at one point. But I decided to take it down because I was informed that a few members on this board may not take any of my posts seriously.

Just make sure that you keep posting as you have much wisdom to share with us. smile.gif

I'm not sure about the wisdom part, but I do have a great soda to share with you all soon.

Cheers Z.

Have a great weekend everyone.

03-24-2006, 05:33 PM
I'll do two things here...put in a vote for Mtn Dew and tell you where to find that video everyone's talking about.

You can find it at Kontraband.com -- you may have to look a little bit, but that's where I've seen it.

Yeah, I know ;) But really, I hate American Fresca about as much as I could hate any soda. It's just that the Mexican version uses real sugar and isn't a diet drink so it is a lot different. If I had to choose between American Fresca and Dew, I'd choose Dew every time.
