Just thought it would be funny to hear some folks experience of the absolute worst tasting soda that they have ever had the displeasure of tasting in their lifetime!

I would have to say that CelRay soda had to be the absolute worse tasting drink I have ever tried. I literally did the "TV sitcom spitout" of the beverage after one small swig from the can. I would have loved to have been at the taste testing of that beverage at the companies product meeting back when it was first introduced. I would have wanted to see who gave it the thumbs up and have them immediately tested for a heartbeat!

I love celery as a rule,..really I do,..but as a carbonated beverage?! What were they thinking?

Also not far from the list was a Jones Soda that I tried while on the road to Alabama. I believe it was supposed to be a melon flavor or something,...but it nearly caused a wreck as I swerved off the road in agony and shock!!!

#3 - Moxie. It tasted like a cola run through a car's crank case. Rank.

#2 - Dad's Creamy Red Soda. Tasted like Big Red, filtered through a mummy. Ick.

#1 - First Tee Plantation Peach Ice Tea. It's not actually a soda, but it's the worst drink i've ever had by far. I like peach iced tea, but it tasted like it was made with Satan's bath water. Once the flavor registered in my brain, I immediately spit it out and rinsed out my mouth. I've never had a reaction that strong to a drink before or since.

Runners up are Afri-Cola (tasted like muddy water), Sanpellegrino Chinotto (like an Italian Moxie), Bundaberg Lemon Lime and Bitters (emphasis on bitter), and Reed's Regular Strength Ginger Ale (Regular strength? Could have fooled me......)

I’ve tried some pretty awful stuff overseas but most of those probably wouldn’t be considered sodas. The US brands which gave me some memorable heaves...

Faygo diet Coconut cream pie. This was one of those “gee, that sounds interesting” purchases. Tasted like a shredded plastic coconut mixed with water.

Bambino Banano. A non-carb banana drink from the ‘70s, consistency like a Yoo-Hoo but without the chocolate taste. It was pretty bad, especially if you didn’t shake it with a paint mixer before opening.

I agree with the earlier comments about Moxie and Cel-ray. I’ve had a can of Moxie in my fridge for a couple of months but no one will drink it.

Green Apple Soda Batch No. 6. I thought it would be interesting as I like an occassional apple soda. This stuff tasted like chemicals and I found it undrinkable. The bottle is pretty cool and I still have an unopened bottle. I think they should go back to the drawing board...maybe Batch No. 7?

Diet Pepsi !!! Simply a lousy product!

Pepsi should be ashamed!

For me:

#1 Shasta Diet Chocolate: Smelled nice, but it was like carbonated Baking (unsweetened) Cocoa. Gag.

#2 Fanta Tonic Water: Tried it in 1981, when I never met a Fanta I didn't like. Until this. One of the very few sodas I've poured down the drain!!

#3 Original Moxie: Combine Tonic water & Diet Barq's Root Beer with SWEET Dr. Pepper. I might get used to this, but it still tasted like a car care product!

#4 Sprecher Ginger Ale: Like carbonated potpourri, weird flavored.

#5 Big Red: Too bitter.

#6 Dr. Brown's Celray: Yes, strange!

Dishonorable mention: All the Jones flavors & Trader Joe's Root Beer taste like they REALLY cut corners on the sweeteners. They do taste better with a little sugar.

Since I don't drink I can't comment on Vermouth.

For me it's a tie between Tab and Tropical Sprite Remix. Tab just had this nasty, burning taste that kind of hurt my mouth!

Tropical Sprite Remix smelled ok but I think the closest thing I can compare it to is the liquid form of Imodium AD - not something I want to drink unless I have to :(

05-18-2004, 01:27 PM
I few truly awful ones I've tried lately...

Trader Joe's Cream Soda - all vanilla, no cream, hideous. They should be embarrased to have their name on this one.

Natural Brew Vanilla Cream Soda - more like cream of ass! Absolutely disgusting. Horrible aftertaste. Should've known by the "natural" in the title it would probably suck.

Jones Blue Bubble Gum - one I had to try. I knew going in it could go either way, but I didn't expect it to taste like spoiled clam juice! At the very least it should have tasted like spoiled clam juice bubble gum. I might have bought an expired batch. At least I got to return this one.

Caveat Emptor! :eek:

At first I thought Moxie, but having had it a bit I can say that I like it when it is cold.
Really though, that Mr. Green was terrible!

The only terrible drink I can think of that I've drank anytime in the past few years would have to be one of the Hansen's thimble energy drinks. I swear the stuff tasted like smoke. Ugh. I also thought Steaz Key Lime was pretty undrinkable as well.

Jack Daniel's Hard Cola: A cocktail of sawdust, alcohol, and generic Diet Coke!

Yoo-Hoo: People I know love it, but it's about as creamy as muddy water, and tastes like it too.

Dr. Enuf: I had to try it when I saw it in East Tennessee. It tastes good at first, but the aftertaste is like chewed-up vitamin pills!

Orbitz: It looked so bad I didn't even taste it!

Blue Ice All-Sport: Looks like aftershave, and tastes like it too.

Caffeine Free Diet Dr. Pepper: Looks like transmission fluid, but doesn't taste as good.

KMX Blue and Orange: One tastes like watered-down Red Bull, the other like watered-down Amp.

I agree with the Stinger energy drink being ass-tastic..

However, I loved KMX (both kinds) and it doesnt taste like watered down Redbull or anythign to me at all.. in fact, it tastes much stronger in terms of flavor.. and they add salt for a weird effect in an energy drink.

Sobe: Adrenaline Rush is amazing!!! Just picked up the newly released Sugar Free 0 Calorie version tonight!

I've got to update my 'Bad Taste Experience'. I just tried a soda, called McCol's, that I bought in a Korean grocery store a couple of days ago. Apparently, it was barley flavored. Yes, BARLEY flavored soda. I tried drinking it a few minutes ago. I honestly don't know how long it'll take my taste buds to recover from the trauma of this God-forsaken soft drink. It tasted like the breakfast cereal Sugar Smacks. Except with almost no sugar. And burnt. And served in a dirty ash tray. It was one of the most truly revolting drinks i've ever tried. It knocks First Tee iced tea off the list, and pushes Moxie and Dad's Creamy Red Soda down a notch. McCol's is truly #1 in suckiness.

I know some people love but Moxie is truly nasty stuff. To me it tastes like Jagermeister with carbonation. The strange part is I bought a six-pack of it and finished it. Even though it was revolting I keep coming back for more, I finished the six bu8t will never buy more. Another one I thought was garbage at first and then got used and now kinda like is Reed's premium Ginger Brew. Dr. Brown's Cel-ray, now that is truly nasty, spit out the first sip and pitched the rest.

As for me, Diet Sierra Mist is the worst tasting soda on the planet. Tastes like club soda gone wrong, with some added form of flavors. I hate all diet sodas though. Fresca's pretty bad too.

I don't think Diet Sierra Mist is all that bad, and I like Fresca. I actually think that Diet Coke is the worst diet soda, but I've been drinking it all my life so I'm used to it.

Oh, that Premium Draft Cola was terrible tasting. I forgot about that one. I think I tried removing it from my mind.

06-28-2004, 09:48 PM
Ah yes, Beverly. It must sell somewhere. Fanta Tonic was supposed to be big in Argentina.

But you're right: Squirt, Tab, & Fresca are nasty tasting IMHO. Dad's Creamy Red wasn't that great, either.

And I never did see (or try) Jones's Turkey & Gravy Soda.

The Albertson's Kiwi Strawberry was more like sweet, carbonated vinegar! :eek:

Shatter
06-28-2004, 11:41 PM
When I was housesitting for my sister, I picked up some Albertson's Kiwi-Strawberry at a local store, and was shocked by how bad it was. They really screwed the flavor up. I had to drink her lousy tap water instead.

So Shatter, you got also got suckered into buying that Kiwi-Strawberry too! redface.gif

That was also one of the few sodas I've EVER poured down the drain.

MooseGuy: Taste testing is just a waste of time & money to SOME drink companies tongue.gif

I've only bought Celray once. Combine it with Jones Turkey & Gravy Soda, Fanta Squash Punch, Snapple Apple Pie, & you have the makings of a complete liquid Holiday meal! :D

Speaking of the Sitcom spitout, many years ago I got tired of a Coke (it just didn't hit the spot at the moment) I was drinking while walking into a Department Store. I put it top down into what at first I thought was a trash can (I wasn't paying attention), but it was one of those old style ash trays where the ashes go down a tube into the bottom part of it.

I'll bet some one had fun scraping the Coke & cigarette ash mixture out of that! ;)

So, please be very careful in how you dispose of unwanted sodas.

I just attempted to drink a bottle of Sangaria Green Tea imported from Japan that I bought at a local 7-11 this afternoon. It's labeled "Traditional Unsweetened". Apparently, they didn't put down "flavored with ass" on the label like they should have. I've tasted green tea before, and it's usually pretty good. But this one tasted scorched or something. I tried sweetening it, but it didn't change the flavor too much. Another drink poured down the drain.

I for one happen to like Red Bull, Tropical Sprite (which tastes like a funky low-rent version of Tahitian Treat to me) and even Pepsi Blue.

But the worst taste experience I've probably ever had was with Sobe No Fear - that stuff is just vile. It's like grape flavored death.

Fresca is my real answer. Used to visit a diabetic relative back in the 70s who would offer soft drinks to the kids..... we soon learned to say no thanks after a saccharine laced Fresca or two, hehe. The taste was just awful.... of course they had no aspartame or splenda back then. The man of the house claimed to like it, mind you he mixed his with gin. smile.gif

the worst soda i've ever tasted was Pepsi X. This stuff isn't available in the US, and we should ocnsider ourselves lucky that is the case. I tasted this is Moscow, while looking for something different. The flavor is describable as pepsi wixed with bubble gum, and the result is not pleasurable for neither palette nor stomach. I couldn't even finish the bottle.

Well I think that no one mentioned Crystal Pepsi because many of us liked the stuff. I know I did. The ORIGINAL formula that is. After they added lemon to it and called it just Crystal, that's when Pepsi ruined it. Hopefully this is the product you are bashing....

1)Canada Dry Cranberry Gingerale- Stuff tasted nasty and really sour.
2)Tropical Sprite Remix (Original formulation)- Tasted so nasty , when first came out threw out whole bottle. As someone mentioned smelled better than it tasted.
Of course after they reformulated it after a while and was much better and good.

well one time me and a few friends were at my school sleepover (yes isn't that cool?) and one of my friends went out and bought a discound bottle of dnL for 50 cents (a 2-liter!) later he gave some out to everyone and it tasted okay but the stuff left this foul aftertaste in everyones mouth that tasted like cherry flavored decongestant. truly nasty, no wonder it was on sale for 50 cents!

my second worst soda encounter is with Sprite remix berryclear, that junk tastes literally like something i made with this food experiments science kit where you made edible slime out of water and some various chemicals.

7up Plus - pure plasticky nasty stuff. Stay way

Cel-Ray - Everyone's favorite soda to bash

Jeff's Egg Cream - Just plain gross

Clear Tab - Though I drank it a lot when it was out simply because it was clear, stores gave it away, and I was a naiive 13 year old, I thought clear (non-citrus) soda was so futuristic and cool. In reality, the stuff was awful!

A few ginger beer sodas ive had were so bitter and had this burning after taste, I couldnt even finish it.

Most people find Monster to be pretty repulsive at first, I agree and it took me awhile to open up to it.

I had this god awful Ginseng soda from a lil japanese grocery store before...pretty gross.

YJ Stinger has this gross sharp medicinal bite to it after a few sips. Probably the worst energy drink, IMO. Arizona energy shot is fairly putrid, too.

I remember my dad bought a Clover Valley "Dr. Topper" (cheap budget brand) from a Dollar General store. He thought it was a Dr. Pepper, A couple minutes later while driving he looked at the can said "what is this S$$T?" It's still funny to me because he rarely cusses.

Most store brand diet colas are toxic waste - I've tried Sam's, Chex, Hy-Top, Big K, American Pride and NONE of them are any good.

Still cant stand TAB - why the heck is Coke still selling this 60's relic? Who's still buying it? Same with Fresca, which could be used as paint remover.

The most recient nasty drink for me was Diet Coke with Lime - ugh! Sorry ecliptic, I couldnt even finsh the bottle.

The newest ones are the most digusting:
7up plus (the "healthy" one) tastes like carbonated cough syrup

And I can't believe no one mentioned Pepsi Holiday Spice. That tasted like cinnamon flavored toothpaste and I couldn't even finish half the 20oz bottle

But the worst drink I ever had was one from China a friend sent me called "Sprite on Fire", a sprite made with ginseng. It actually made me hurl dark brown foamy liquid

Holiday Pepsi was like throwing in a teaspoon each of clove, nutmeg, & tumeric in normal Pepsi. Not good.

Red Rock Ginger Ale might have been better with less spice.

CELRAY_IS_THE_BEST
03-23-2005, 07:44 PM
It is so clear to me that Dr. Brown's Celray Tonic, a celery flavored, and I say "delicately and subtly flavored" drink, is the perfect accompaniment for a corned beef on rye or pastrami on rye or roast beef on rye sandwich. It cuts right through the greasiness and restoreth the palate.

Anyone who doesn't recognize this simply has decayed or nonfunctioning taste buds. There are some medical treatments for this deficiency, but don't spend your time putting down this fine and I might say, sacred, soft drink. It's like a deaf person trying to explain the nuances of a classical recording.

Just simply stay at home and swill down your "Cokes". Yechhh!!!

By the way, I purchase Dr. Brown's Celray and their Cream and Black Cherry sodas by the case and never am without them.

If you're from NYC, you'll understand. Or perhaps Boston, Philly, Chicago or LA and Miami. Otherwise, you are part of the Great Unwashed.

When I was a kid my father used to take me to Za Mar deli in Brighton beach Brooklyn across from the Brighton beach baths and next door to the oceanic movie theater.
There I would receive the treat of a lifetime a fresh hot corned beef on rye a side of kasha varnishas and a DR. Browns celray tonic. I thought that was grand, I can still taste it.
As an adult I cant stand that celray tonic but boy did I love it as a kid. There was nothing like it. A true classic, an original.
