    Aranciata, Limonata and A brown thing by San Pellegrino. what's the brown one taste like?

    And, to SS's delight, Lorina. I have a couple bottles in the chiller as we speak.

    I also purchased some Afri-Cola, for the first time ever. I'll report bac kto you all later.

    I've tried 3 kinds of Sprecher's, and the only one I didn't care for was the Ginger Ale. Just too strong and spicy for my tastes. But the others were pretty good. And if the San Pellegrino one you're talking about is Chinotto, it tastes like ass. It's a slightly less offensive kind of Moxie type drink. And Frostie's makes a peach soda? Cool! I'm going to have to try that one.

    Oh, yeah! And Moxie as well... Yes, the chinotto is really similar to the original Moxie, strangely enough...
    Keep in mind that the King Of Pop\'s crown is not made from a bunch of melted aluminum cans!

    the afri cola wasn't that bad. in fact, i quite enjoyed it.

    as for the lorina orangeade and lorina lemonade, they didn't have nearly as much flavor as i was expecting. maybe that raspberry lemonade will be better?

    That Lorina Orangeade has a subtle flavor, but it grows on you after a few sips. It's really pretty good. Actually, when I buy a big bottle, i'm always suprised how fast I go through it.

    For me, there's a brightness or a freshness about the Lorina's that I don't get from other "lemonades." Maybe that's because the guy makes the flavoring syrup every day?

    Whatever the reason, it's super refreshing.

    We have the San Pellegrino chinotto here and I still can't figure out how a "citrus" drink is supposed to be that color brown. But it does have its loyal followers.
    Soda? Yum!

    A brown citrus drink..... isn't brown the color that citrus fruits turn when they rot? Maybe they wanted to make a drink that tasted like rotting oranges and lemons... That would explain chinotto's taste.....

    Try mixing a few of those together. If I'm not mistaken, they could be classified as WOMD.
