Cola is a great way to give yourself a sugar rush after pulling an all-nighter. Especially when it's too stuffy in the library to drink hot coffee. Mind you, this all changed after I discovered Starbucks' double shot (w/milk) canned coffee. <3

World Market had this great "italian" soda on sale. I got the pomegranate flavor.


Very tasty

I hate when I get gruff for drinking "Coke". 

Ewww, you drink that?

FUCK YOU, YES!!!  GLUG GLUG TS AAAHHHH!! *middlefinger, middlefinger*
Personally, I'm more concerned for the folks that drink Diet sodas. I'll take natural over artificial any day. And yes, this statement can be used for other arguments as well.

I love Coke, especially Cherry Coke from the fountain, but had to give it up due to stomach issues. Sucks.

I can't believe I didn't put this as a pet peeve. What the hell, me?

Anyway, this will probably only apply to some of you, but I hate when people abuse the hell out of disabled parking spaces. I'm talking about people who aren't remotely handicapped parking there so disabled people have to park elsewhere. I'm talking about people who get 6 week temporary placards for a sprained toe and then milk the system to extend the expiration date. I'm talking about soccer moms (YES YOU LADIES AT THE SCHOOL PARKING LOTS) who have to pick up little Jimmy and can't be bothered to park in the street. I'm talking about package delivery guys who double park in 5 handicapped spots to drop off packages. Hell, anyone who double parks -- everyone does this! If you abuse disabled parking spots -- which I legitimately need, I'll want to hit you with my leg braces. Don't make me go there.

Why am I never invited?

I don't drive a car either, but sometimes I push shopping trollies into the spaces to make up for it.

Well, if it's a rave it's totally okay.

(My earlier reply came out way snootier than I meant it to!)

Lucca, I'd say you're pretty justified.  Those people suck.  Here's Jeff Dunham telling a joke about it (about halfway in).  I swear he stole this from someone else, though, because I don't really like him...

Alisha - I <3 Vanilla Coke.  If you're ever near a Rubio's (a fish taco place), they always have it.  Otherwise, you can probably find Vanilla Coke Zero in 12 packs at Walmart. :)

Oh yeah! I fricken love Irn Bru, and I'm not a big soft drink person.

I have no idea what it is supposed to taste like though. Just because it is an orange colour, certainly doesn't mean it is orange.

There's one I used to drink in El Salvador - can occasionally find it here in the US, but it's tough.  It's called Kolashanpan, and it's orange colored, but it took me years to figure out how to describe the flavor.  When I finally did, I decided it tastes like Juicy Fruit gum. :)

Show me a weird flavored soda, and I'll almost always try it.  I make exceptions for the obviously nasty Jones Soda holiday stuff like Mashed Potatoes & Gravy.  But I was brave enough to try Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray soda - the soda that tastes like celery.

@Tooker- that is a very popular drink found all over the Caribbean(and no doubt lots of other places). In English it's called Cola Champagne. It's taste will vary depending on where you get it from. Typically I like two brands (one from Jamaica and one from Haiti). Damn good stuff. Its easy to find in any sort of Hispanic or west  Indian store. Of course those are probably hard to find outside of major cities.

Oh and in Trinidad they have a really good kind made by Solo but it's totally different in flavor and color (it's red).

This reminds me of the Cinema Snob. He has a section on his website where he just tries all the weird flavoured sodas people donate to him. I don't know why I find it as interesting as I do.

I loved it when someone sent him a packet of Prawn Cocktail crisps from the UK and he looked at it like it was from outer space. So weird seeing the reactions of people who aren't used to these things.
