    Not a lot of inspiration coming to me today after a long week. Um - favorite soda, and make a case as to why it's superior to all other soda.

    Diet Rite Cola.
    Upside. No caffeine, no sodium, no calories, the good sweetener.
    Downside. Really thin tinny cans that can explode if you are not careful.

    None? I don't drink soda. I'll vote coffee since I'm drinking it now.

    I try not to drink too much of it, but Mountain Dew is the nectar of the gods. On the flip side, Diet Mountain Dew is poison.

    Lately I go for Cherry Coke Zero mostly which is one of the few diet pops I actually think tastes good.

    Ooh. Fufu Berry. Nice pull. I always thought it tasted like the medicine they gave me for strep throat when I was, like, 7.

    So you can't be avoiding soda due to the caffeine... So why?

    I'd probably go Diet Dr. Pepper. Tastes the most like the un-diet version.

    I believe it's called the Daddy soda?

    Pros - You can get drunk.
    Cons - None have been found.

    Can you get that in 20 oz-ers? Or just cans?

    Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry is a good substitute.

    I'll vote HyVee's "Hee Haw." I got burned out on Dew; now I like saving money.

    Winner winner chicken dinner! All soda is horrible for you (yes, even diet). I used to be one of those people that would lose their mind if they didn't get at least 1 diet cherry pepsi each day. Kicked the habit a few months back and couldn't be happier!

    What's soda? I think you may be referring to a certain class of non-alcoholic carbonated beverages called pop.
    But if I must bite, I'll have what he's having:

    Downright delicious flavors, gotta love their berry lemonade.

    Diet Code Red Mountain Dew is like crack in a can.

    Somebody will tell you to try one, and you will. Before you know it, you are buying it by the grocery cart full where you can find it on sale, and unleashing expletive laced tirades at grocery store managers who attempt to enforce a 2-12 pack limit on purchases, or those who do not carry the product at all.

    My hired man helped himself to one as my supply got low and I hit him with a wrench. I am not proud of it.

    Not even a huge root beer fan but this stuff has some kind of magical hold over me.

    Soda is one of the worst things you can put in your body. It's like taking the sugar bowl and dumping it all into your mouth.

    It rots your teeth.
    It makes you fat.
    It contains zero nutrition whatsoever for your body.
    Mountain Dew contains Brominated Vegetable Oil. That's a flame retardant!

    That said, Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew are two of the greatest inventions in the history of mankind. Why do they have to taste so good?
