...or Cherry RC.



Actually, the best cherry cola is a "Roy Rogers" or, as Iike to call it, a "Shirly Temple, Black", where they actually mix the cherry flavouring into the cola on site.

Which one?

Any bar should be able to make a traditional cherry cola (though the movie star names will throw most modern bartenders).

Cherry RC? I don't know.


So, did you enjoy your turkey and stuffing, what was it, Monday, six or seven weeks ago?

Coke ... always Coke ... unless it's Mt. Dew :)
- can't mix Mt. Dew with bourbon though ;)

The only cherry cola is Black Cherry Vanilla Coke.

You can still Do the Dew ?

I`m known as the sweet tooth around these parts, and I can't drink the stuff anymore !

So, early early 80s, a young Spectrum goes with his kindergarten class to the police station. Nice little tour, no real security concerns because not much more than speeding tickets are given out in the little suburb. At the end of it, we're gathered in a little group to look at a biiiiiiig poster of drugs. Given that this was the start of the War on Drugs, we're all expected to give a promise never to do drugs.

Little Spectrum comes to school the next day, worried and telling his teacher that his parents did Coke.

Never did develop a very good resistance to caffeine. Never really drake either Coke or Pepsi either.

You know, I tried sniffing Coke once, but the bubbles kept tickling my nose.

Right up there with never drink and drive... you might hit a bump and spill your drink.

(Not as funny anymore IMO, given the dangers of drinking and driving, but still)

Amazing that humanity has lasted as long as it has. You'd think that basic things would have wiped us all out ages ago.

As long as it isn't vanilla, either will do. XD

Coke, it's my 'drug' of choice. I don't drink alcohol anymore, I haven't since I was a teenager and I've never smoked or used recreational drugs. I do however drink at least two pint glasses full of coke and ice each day (Sometimes three)

I don't know if the recipe is changed to suit different societal tastes but our local fast food truck used to give away free bottles of coke if you spent over a certain amount, the writing on the bottles was only in Arabic and it tasted completely different to the coke we normally get in England.

Diet Coke for me, straight from the bottle or can. I hate fountain drinks. As far as root beer goes, some of the local craft root beer is really good and puts IBC root beer to shame.

If I'm not mistaken, the formulas stay the same, it's the water used in the process that makes the difference. Florida water is different than Colorado. No matter the filtration process trace amounts are going to make a difference in the taste.
