Somehow, Sonic makes it to die for. IDK if they do something weird, but they always put a ridiculous amount of ice and it tastes so, so good. I've had Barqs in a bottle, and I hated it, though. Has to be from a the tap. They also have Barqs vanilla. It's pretty solid, but the absolute best is from Sonic with no extras.
I always drank Barqs out of the can. Still love a cold can of Barqs. Kicks the shit out of MUG or A&W.

I prefer Pepsi over Coca Cola..

I’ve been buying a fountain drink 32 ounce fo like a dollar from one of the gas stations every day.
Lagavulin single malt is better than either Pepsi or Coca Cola, Doby.

And better for you as well.

You should probably start with a bit less than 32 ounces, just till you get used to it.

Slainte, lad !

Nothing makes you belch like Dr Pepper. I love that aspect of it. Flavour's good too.

Mug... it really depends on where you can get it on tap. From a can, it's fucking garbage (so is A&W). There is also a gas station like a few miles away from my house that has it on tap. It's fucking disgusting, though. Got it once and never again.

Mug really fucking surprised me at this gas station next to my school. They do something magical to it. It's ridiculously, ridiculously delicious. It's like one of those gas stations with a Subway. The amount of fizz coming from it when you work the tap is extraordinary. Fills up the entire cup just with fizz when you pour a little. Takes forever to dispense into your drink. Maybe they carbonate it more or something, but it is magical. I totally forgot about it too until just now.

Oh, they also have RC Cola on tap too. I've never had RC on tap, and we used to buy them in bottles because they were so cheap at this gas station (they no longer do them anymore). Fuck me, RC Cola on tap is fucking delicious, though.

By the way, I'm so glad I don't have easy access to a soda fountain. Easily, I'd probably drink myself till I was diabetic.

One of the best feelings is when you wake up at 3am dehydrated to fuck and you go to the fridge and see a cold can of coke. You know you should go for water but you down the can, it initially feels nice then it rips your throat as it goes Down.

I don't really drink much fizzy juice now. I did a lot when I was younger, but I no longer have the same taste for it.


I remembered another couple of favourites though. The San Pellegrino Lemon and San Pellegrino Blood Orange

As for the question, it really depends. I love all three sodas. I try hard not to keep them in the house because I'd literally be drinking 4 bottles of that shit a day.

Dr. Pepper tastes like shit in a glass bottle and a plastic bottle for some reason, though. Dr. Pepper tastes best from the tap or from a can. Pepsi and Coke taste great in any form. Pepsi doesn't taste all that great from a tap while Coke is fucking king from the tap. As I said, depends on how I'm feeling.

They can all taste like shit if you get them from a shitty tap where they don't refill the syrup or whatever.
Ha. Replied to you twice. Didnt realize this was old.

No issue. I'm Mexican, we fucking love our soda... far too damn much, though. I can talk about soda all day. Easily, my favorite thing. I can live off soda, but again, I keep it far away from me.

I'd throw up. I love my soda, but just no. I can't even stomach water even when I'm dying of thirst in the morning. Now, I've been drinking a Topo Chico first thing. It's the best thing for me in the morning. Gets rid of my upset stomach and allows me to rehydrate before I go to the gym. It's part of my morning routine now. By the way, Topo Chico is the perfect substitute for soda. It has that very hard carbonation that burns the shit out of your throat.

If anyone has issues giving up soda, it's the perfect thing for that. It's horrible at first, and you'll likely need to drink it with lime/lemon. After a while, it's easy to drink. I mean 100% I'd rather drink sodas, but it works as a substitute for me.

I'm not Mexican. My soda intake is ridiculous. I put in extra miles on the bike as a sacrifice to the soda gods
