Pepsi. I was happier than a pig in ---- when the UF campus went from Coke to Pepsi. I was somewhat in the minority though.

      TaB first. If the Kroger or Eagle doesn't have it, then it's Diet Coke. The only time I will voluntarily consume pepsi is if someone offers it (just to be polite), or if it's the offering where I'm eating. If the latter is the case, then it's Dr Pepper. pepsi will not have a place in my fridge.

        All the Boylan flavors except the diet ones, can't stand diet drinks.

          Actually, after Pepsi and Faygo (namely Vernors), my choice would be the Off-Brand Pops from Save-A-Lot or Aldi (namely Bubba Cola from Save-A-Lot). I notice that the Off-Brand pops are always fresh and fizzy.

            Coke, Orange Crush, and the usual suspects.
            However, I ran across a "Dole Sparkler" - since then I've been looking for them and haven't seen them again.

                  I had a blueberry/pomegranate Dole Sparkler and was less than impressed with that particular flavor.

                    I get twelve pack cans of Tahitian Treat at Woodman's in Wisconsin everytime I make the trip from Chicago.

                      My current favorite is Dr Pepper, both cold and hot. Hot Dr Pepper was promoted heavily in the 60's and was quite a fad for a while. I wonder if I am the only one that still likes it hot?

                        Gingerale, not diet.
                        Seltzer, to make an egg cream.

                        NY egg cream:
                        Take a tall glass
                        fill 1/4 with Ubet chocolate syrup
                        pour milk 1/4 up way more.
                        Fill rest of glass with seltzer
                        Stir till frothy white foam on top.
                        Enjoy.

                            I prefer 'Jones'. They use real cane sugar, guess it is considered the healthy soda pop. They have unique combinations of flavors. At Thanksgiving, Jones came out with a - Turkey, gravy, mashed potato, soda pop! I did not have the courage to taste it. If you send them a picture and they like it, they put your picture on the label.

                                TFShaw; Dearfolk,
                                Irony of ironies... Moxie is manufactured by Monarch Beverage, which is headquartered in near-to-me Doraville, Georgia. Try as I might, though, I cannot find it anywhere in these Georgian parts. My first taste of it was on my sole trip to Connecticut: I lucked upon it in a large supermarket in Waterbury (they also carried Eclipse Coffee Syrup!), and it was LOVE at first swig.
                                My supposition is that it's just expensive enough to make that Monarch purposely keeps its market limited to Maine and wherever it will sell in that proximity. There is, for example, a beer and soda distributor in Pennsylvania that keeps it in stock at all times. If I recollect right, they're somewhere up by The Poconos.
                                Hmmm... I just read that Moxie has been sold by Monarch to Cornucopia Beverages, which is a subsidiary of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Northern New England. Apparently they are interested in expanding the territory of the drink.
                                Sodamania in Tampa, Florida keeps Moxie in stock, as do several other mega-soda dealers around the country... Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other cities (WHY not Atlanta?).
                                Sodamania in Lutz, Florida (north of Tampa: 14603 Livingston Avenue 33549) reports that Moxie is their # 1 seller of all the 400-plus brands they stock. This is located inside Subs-N-Such Sandwich Shop. When I can make it to Florida, I'll have to trundle out there and glom some up.
                                Some folks would hypothesize that I like Moxie because it's weird, and that factor does indeed enter my mind... but that's definitely not a deciding one. Yes, Moxie gets my vote... Diet Moxie, specifically.
                                DeMoxiefied, Ort. Carlton in Amazing Athens, Georgia.
                                P. S. I have a few cans left in thr 12-pack sitting on the kitchen table... it was brought down from Maine for me.

                                      I have heard about Moxie but have never encountered it. I always thought it was a NYC favorite. Maine never crossed my mind. I still think it is big in NYC though.

                                      Funny it has not made it to the capital region of NYS though as there are so many NYC folk here in the legislature with their staff and entourage. Then again, maybe they don't drink soft drinks which would explain a lot about their behavior.

                                        back in days of yore I used to like Brookdale Soda in NJ; it came in cases of great big tasy bottles and if I recall righht the places that sold it sold nothing else...long gone of course.
                                        last time I was east Stewarts root beer from the real places was still v good- the bottles you can buy at places even here are not close.
                                        my facvorite these days are Hansens Natural sodas- very flavorful , and the diet stuff does not suffer a bi...we always have some hansens here

                                          I'm a fan of RC. Along with Sun Drop, that's the first soft drink I remember drinking at my great-grandfather's house. He always kept the two in his pantry.

                                          Not sure what my favorite soda really is, but if I had to choose one, I'd probably go with Cheerwine or Iron Beer.

                                            Coke Classic is my favorite, followed by Pepsi and then RC Cola. I also like orange drinks like Crush and Nehi. Don't offer me any diet drinks; I can't stand them.

                                              I like RC but Barqs is my favorite.  Especially that bottled on the Mississippi Gulf coast.  I was a QC tech for a Coke plant for a while and got tired of tasting all of their products after a year or so(I was there for 2 years).  Does anyone remember Kickapoo Joy Juice from Dogpatch USA in Arkansas.

                                                I never buy and rarely drink carbonated sugar or diet beverages. But if it is the only choice and there is a variety of them in a tub of ice I would pick out the root beer.

                                                    Sodamania in Lutz, Florida (north of Tampa: 14603 Livingston Avenue 33549) reports that Moxie is their # 1 seller of all the 400-plus brands they stock. This is located inside Subs-N-Such Sandwich Shop. When I can make it to Florida, I'll have to trundle out there and glom some up.



                                                    I go there a few times a year to try out sodas .. and of course have a pressed cuban. Good sandwich great sodas but the counter service is not the "cheeriest"

                                                      I'm not a real coke or pepsi lover.  Also realised recently that I don't like A&W root beer, it has a weird sorta taste like bad coffee, maybe it's just me though.

                                                      I have a few favourites:

                                                      Welsh's Grape Soda
                                                      Barq's Root Beer
                                                      Mountain Dew
                                                      Stewart's Birch Beer
                                                      Jones Strawberry Lime
                                                      Jones Cream Soda

                                                        Diet Pepsi, diet Vernors. I trid diet Orange Crush and discovered why it tasted so good, it's not zero carbs and has sugar in it or maybe hfcs

                                                            Speaking of Jones Soda...they brought out a holiday pack which included the following flavours; Fruitcake, Cranberry Sauce, Greenbean Casserole, Mashed Potato & Butter, Brussels Sprouts, Wild Herb Stuffing and as someone said Turkey & Gravy, I also heard they brought out a pumkin pie one which I wouldn't mind trying but as for those other flavours....I think I'll pass!
