Sirop! This stuff is awesome. You mix it with a mineral water like perrier or badoit(Which you can't find in the US, just crappy perrier) and you have an awesome drink...The flavours here are mint, grenaide(Rasberry and other good ****) and strawberry. They don't taste artificial or anything. Like juice stright from a strawberry...(Can for size ref)

Any soda you want can be found in glass in europe. I drunk 7-up,fanta,pepsi,pepsi max, coke, sprite, fanta pineapple, oringina, oringina rouge and many others from glass. But I couldn't bring that much glass back with me on the plane...Which sucks balls.

Just another picture of some of my glass.

They use neat 1.5 litre bottles instead of 2 litres. From left to right, Fanta Citron frappe, fanta, coke light, oringina, oringina rouge, lipton green tea. I also have lipton mango tea ,liptonic,fanta latino, coke with pure cane sugar, fanta pineapple and gini...Just not here.

These are some cans of just pepsi max, lipton peach tea, and vanille coke. I have 12 packs of each...And except for pepsi max which uses asparatame they all use pure cane sugar...

Hello, I live in the South of Netherlands, on the border of Netherland, Belgium, Germany. I can make a lot of pictures of all the bottles/cans overhere (including supermarkt presentations).

Also the syrop you showed is very common overhere. You actually took the cheap and ugly ones. I can show you a lot more!

Greetings,
Denis Minning

My sister just got back from Germany, and brought me a bunch of stuff. .5L glass Mezzomix, Fanta Orange, and Sprite.

Plus, 1L PET Vanilla Coke and Lift Apfel-Cassis-Schorle (Apple soda).

She also brought back a 150ml Sprite can from Holland (from the plane) and an empty .5L PET Coke bottle.

I can take pictures and post if anyone is interested.

I just got a case of Dutch Fanta Orange. It's pretty good, but I like Boylan's Orange better.

So far, I've had the Lift, the Vanilla Coke, and the Fanta.

The Fanta was better than probably every other Fanta Orange, but on par with a good Mexican one.

The Vanilla was definately better than the US version. The sugar really takes the edge off of the oversweet/fake vanilla taste of the US one.

Lift was an interesting soda that took some getting used to. The flavor was pretty strong, in my opinion.

I'll chill the others and give my impression soon.

I just found this thread and decided to see what I had in the basement to take a pic of those, here's a small sample of Swedish sodas (being in Sweden and all that's why I have them). These are one bottle of each soda I have in the basement as I'm writing this (except for some bottles and cans imported from the US).

http://img68.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img68&image=IMG_8.jpg

From left to right:

* Apotekarnes Passionsfrukt (passion fruit)
* Spendrups Julmust (Julmust is a traditional Swedish Christmas soda with malt and hops (but non-alcoholic unlike beer), hence Santa on the label)
* Zingo Orange
* Fanta Gröna Äpplen (green apples)
* Fanta Exotiska Frukter (exotic fruits)
* Spendrups Tutti Frutti
* Signum Hallonsoda (raspberry)
* Signum Sockerdricka ("sugar soda", this is probably the oldest type of carbonated soda in Sweden)
* Pepsi
* Signum Fruktsoda ("fruit soda", pretty similar to Sprite and 7up in a way)
* Go Apelsin (orange soda, haven't tried this one before so I can't say if it's any good or not)
