For me I think it would be pretty embarrassing to be caught in a public place drinking slim fast.

Anything in a Pepsi bottle.

Anything without my label on it...

Something like think pink or sum poosie, or anything with a name designed to appeal to people who go for things like that. Having said that, I did get a laugh out of it for a few moments when I first heard the name. I won't buy it though.

I knew somebody would say Zima! I've never quite understood that. Anyway I think I'd have to say Red Bull because people would think I got ripped off, lol.

diet tonic water
Caffeine Free Diet Coke.
Just plain wrong in so many ways.......

I wouldn't say anything in a Pepsi bottle, because here RC Winchester uses Pepsi bottles for 20 oz. products, including their DPSU products. They have the right to use them because of their agreement to produce Mountain Dew.
I'd say the most embarrassing drink would probably be Tab or Sierra Mist. Both are disgraces in their own right.
Any product of the Pepsi Cola division of Pepsico. Drinking a Pepsi just says "low class" in so many parts of the South, even to this day.
Any "malternative", especially Zima.
Any bottled water that is not among the three cheepest brands generally available in that area, or which was pulled from the ground on another continent.
Any drink with a paper umbrella.

Those stupid cartoon "kool aid" drinks
10-04-2003, 02:19 PM
either kool aid or jones soda or orbitz!!
10-28-2003, 08:35 PM
Vanilla Pepsi :D
10-28-2003, 11:07 PM
Yep, the Kool Aid & other child oriented type packaged drinks.
And also some of those potentially "nasty" named drink, like Rat B-----d, etc. In these days of political correctness.... :eek:
I used to drink that old Sego, even though I wasn't trying to lose weight.
I do remember one (diet?) soft drink TV ad in the 1960's about "Just for girls...". Cut your potential buying population in half by doing that!

And the winner is.....................
SUM POOSIE - the Most Embarassing Drink You Can Guzzle Outside of a Locked Closet or Strip Club. :eek:
I think though if they did a label re-design - it would help. Kinda like SEX COLA - at least they have bright colors and cool graphics....even though some may find SEX COLA to be the FOURTH most embarassing drink when imbibed anywhere other than, oh, say.... a porn convention? :D
SECOND and THIRD places have to go to any wine cooler and ZIMA and the like
