    I ordered some of this from the Double Cola web site. It's pretty good. It is similar in flavor to Mountain Dew but has a much stronger Orange/ Grape fruit/ citrus flavor. The cherry version is also very good. The cherry flavoring is like that shirley temple type cherry. Really good. Too bad availability isn't better.

    Would you say it tastes more like Sun-Drop?

    Which bottler produced the Ski? I've tried it from several different bottlers and I thought the product from Tri-State or Big Springs tasted better.

    No, I don't think it tastes like the sun-drop I have had. BUT, the sundrop I had in cans, I got from a food lion in the nothern virginia area, tasted like Mountain Dew. The sundrop in bottles from west jefferson I THINK, it was years ago, tasted differently. (more like SKI?) SKI is its own unique flavor for me so far. I do seem to remember though that the canned sundrop I had recently did not taste like I remembered from a few years ago.

    Absolutely. I don't find anything to really compare it to ... it has more of any orange taste than Sundrop, MY or the other citrus drinks.

    EV is RC/Tri-State in Evansville. I'm drinking a Double Cola from there right now!

    I might have to go to St. Louis this Spring. If so I'm going to stop in at Excel Bottling Co. to pick up some Ski and other flavors.

    I agree with Cheer-wined. Ski has it's own taste unlike others. It has more orange flavor than dew or sundrop. I think it's lighter tasting without as much as an aftertaste or mouthfeel. It's good stuff.
    If it\'s in glass, it probably kicks a@*
