Here we go again.

In an effort to continue the war for shelf-space, Coke announced "Tropical Sprite Remix." Pepsi was quick to return fire by realeasing orange "LiveWire," the third installment of the "Mountain Dew Trilogy"

Tropical Sprite Remix

Mountain Dew: LiveWire

I only ask that they bring back my beloved Crystal Pepsi [Frown]

What's next? "CokeRetro" (80's "New Formula")

I'll take any Mountain Dew that I can get! For I am an addict.

Go Pepsi.

In Canada only dark coloured soft drinks can have caffeine, so if you come here, beware! Our Mountain Dew won't satisfy your addiction.

Moutain Dew without Caffeine, surely you jest! Does it even sell?

I lived in North Carolina for a time and became addicted to Sweet Tea, hard to find here in Michigan, so Mountain Dew it is.

Another drink I enjoyed in the Carolinas was Cheerwine, a cherry flavored soda, I lived in Salisbury, NC and Carolina Beverage was one of our customers, very interesting history, too bad they haven't made it to Michigan yet.

Greg,

Sweet Tea is no problem.. make it at home... get Lipton Cold Brew... no heating of water needed... let two bags soak in 1gl water for 15 minutes or so.. stir.. voila.... southern style sweet tea... I don't know HOW anyone drinks unsweetened tea... [puke] [eyes]

I still have customers who complain that we don't have Tab pouring from our fountains anymore. I think we stopped offering Tab in 1985.

Mountain Dew Code Red is okay I suppose, but I'm still partial to the original.

Even though I tend to refer to Mountain Dew as Mountain Spew, the Code Red variety is ok.
One thing I kinda miss about someplace I used to work is having Surge available on the fountain - that stuff gets you right wound up! [Big Grin]
Lipton Cold Brew is decent, but when it comes to iced tea, my favorite has got to be Arizona. [thumbsup]
Lately my preferred carbonated beverages have been Dr Pepper Red Fusion, Fresca, and Barq's Root Beer - in a frosty mug. [Smile]

I haven't figured out what DP Red Fusion is supposed to taste like. It just tastes like Dr. Pepper that's been sitting out for a few days to me. [puke]

Red Fusion does taste like Dr Pepper, but minus that thick syrup-y cola thing. [Smile]

I stole a Fresca out of the fridge at work a couple weeks ago, and I'm hooked on it now. [thumbsup] Fresca has been around forever but it seems like Coca Cola doesn't promote it much, if at all.

Are you sure Tab and Diet Coke are the same thing? I haven't had a Tab in a LONG time, but I don't recall it tasting like Diet Coke...
