Dr Pepper.

Boozilla

I frikkin' love Dr. Pepper. I almost never drink it anymore. I'm getting older and gotta watch the ol' A1C.

jordanlund

Diet Dr. Pepper/Dr. Pepper Zero is just as good.

[deleted]

Same. A nearby pizza place has a slice and a can of soda for $5. I go there for lunch once every two weeks.

Drunemeton

Can I Venmo you $5.50 and you grab me a slice? Just mail it back!

Where I live that’s $12.

Please don't make "Lemmings" a thing.

"Hey, you should join Lemmy!"

"Whats Lemmy?"

"It's like reddit, except instead of a Redditor, you're a Lemming!"

"...........no."

HarbingerOfTomb

Too late

Resol van Lemmy

"Lemminos" sounds better imo.

grrgyle

How about just "people"

Resol van Lemmy

You would have no idea who uses Lemmy and who doesn't.

grrgyle

I don't know why that's important. Like in this case anyone reading it knows what they're on

Resol van Lemmy

Well, if you're referring to us Lemminos outside of Lemmy as "people", you wouldn't know.

I guess context matters in this case.

Fushuan [he/him]

Why though?

Ookami38

Root beer. Or cream soda. Or a spicy ginger ale / beer. Anything with bite, flavor, complexity.

other_cat

Mmm sasparilla

RampantParanoia2365

Cream Soda, but generally I drink soda for caffeine that's not coffee. So Dr. Pepper or Coke.

I don’t drink soda. Why? So I can tell people that I don’t drink soda.

Rhynoplaz

Have you tried being vegan? Sounds right up your alley!

Boozilla

Just wanted to chime in to make sure you both know I used to live in NYC. I am sure it's been longer than five minutes since I told anyone.

Empricorn

That's interesting! I had a hard time finding a good CrossFit gym in NYC... Yeah, I do CrossFit.

underwire212

I don’t drink soda

Binette

I like citrus sodas, like San pellegrino, or Fanta.

stoy

Sadly San Pellegrino is part of Nestle, so I refuse to knowingly buy them any more...

RBWells

Oh that is heartbreaking. Their Limonata one is such a good mixer.

stoy

Yeah, I particularly enjoyed the Arantica Rossa, just fantastic taste.

Binette

Wtf I didn't know... Guess I'll stick to fanta.

stoy

Yeah, it sucks, sorry to be the one to tell you

Binette

Dont worry. I''d rather know about this.

Gingerlegs

Cheerwine

anon6789

Cheerwine is great stuff! The one gas station chain carried it here for a bit, but I haven't seen it in about a year or so now.

Boylan, they use the cane sugar the bigger names swapped out for corn syrup.

Elextra

Concur!! Most of the sodas with cane sugar taste better. Love cream sodas personally

LCP

Ginger ale

EarthShipTechIntern

Me too: HOMEMADE Ginger ale.

Natural carbonation is best.

LCP

:O

Curious what the process is like. How long does it take to ferment?

RBWells

Making a ginger bug takes a week or so, once it's going you can park it in the fridge and revive it in a couple of days.

I have a recipe for ginger beer and also for tepache in the non alcoholic post on !cocktails@lemmy.world

EarthShipTechIntern

Starting the ginger bug takes 2-5 days.

Once the ginger bug is rolling, about a day. Or less.

I just keep the ginger bug going. Almost done with a bottle? Add new flavors & sugars, it's pushing carbonation in hours.

Hikermick , edited

The spicier the better. Blenheim red cap is best if you can find it

HarbingerOfTomb

It looks like you edited out calling us Lemmings and I came here to say, LEMMINGS IS OUR DEMONYM. ✊ Lemming Power!

VanHalbgott [OP]

Oh...but someone was getting tired of it so that's why I changed it.

Otherwise, I would still use 'Lemmings' as a demonym.

DarkCloud

Lems, lemmies, luna excursion modules, lemmos, lembians, lemwads... Anything but lemmings.

WindyRebel

Lematics!

EarthShipTechIntern

All my homemade sodas are good: start with ginger bug, add any flavors you want - including or excluding caffeine depending on how you're feeling.

EarthShipTechIntern

Everybody should be able to make a better soda than corporations do.

impure9435

I know that I'm weird but I like Mountain Dew

Rhynoplaz

I just think it tastes better than the other top brands.

I couldn't care less about being EXTREME!!, playing CoD or whatever the hell they market now.

ieatpwns , edited

Any flavor seltzer water is cool

anon6789

I've been enjoying all the random new Coke flavors.

The Rosalia one and Y3000 were both exceptional to me, and the new Coke Spice is nice as well.

I was sad when the Rosalia ended production, that was a great flavor. The limited time thing does make it exciting too.

Blackout

I like the staticky flavors of La Croix but Waterloo Grape is the best.

  1. NOS (original or green apple)

RBWells

Purchased? Diet coke.

Homemade - ginger beer, tepache. Glorious.

Eeyore_Syndrome

Wendy's has Dave's Orange Cream Soda. I suppose that's my favorite.

tigeruppercut

Normally flavored seltzer but occasionally the spicy varieties of ginger beer

Dasus

Moomin soda is what I'm currently drinking. Forest strawberry flavoured.

But perhaps... Pommac?

Just plain carbonated water is my go to, but if I drink something sweet, usually those new caffeine free cokes. But best taste / sensation is Pommac or Moomin, definitely.

ArtieShaw

I'm not a soda drinker, but Green River gets me right in the nostalgia.

Occasionally, I'll have some club soda with a bit of vanilla or hazelnut syrup. Not too sweet, but enough to taste. Plain soda water is also good.

AggressivelyPassive

Club Mate. Not too sweet, loads of caffeine and looks cool.

Also, you can feel superior to the plebs that don't understand the complex "wet ashtray" flavors.

BrianTheeBiscuiteer

If I'm not being calorie conscious then Big Red.

grasshopper_mouse

I'm addicted to Polar seltzer if that counts

bitchkat

Root beer --- 1919 is good for a creamy flavor and Boylan for a bite.

jordanlund

Caffeinated.

Buglefingers

I very rarely have soda at all, on the occasions I do Dr. Pepper because it slightly tastes like cherry. Otherwise it's all more or less the same to me

Resol van Lemmy

In Morocco, we have Ice. Yeah, that's what the soda is called.

onion

Cola

grrgyle , edited

Oh just any kind, preferably without sugar, preferably it's hot and sunny out

Vedlt

Probably Melon Soda. Not so much the melon cream soda though.

Noodle07

Coca cola, intravenous please

merari42

I love Club Mate Cola.

Donjuanme

Root beer, there are so many different flavors and variety. A lot of artisanal stuff out there as well!

Cream soda is the second choice

reattach

Ale 8 One

Somewhere between ginger ale and Mountain Dew, and caffeinated.

mholiv

Schwip Schwap is my favorite. Mountain Dew is also quite nice when I can find it.

Thorny_Insight

Fanta Exotic.

They just stopped selling it where I live and made a sugar free alternative that's ok but nowhere near as good

johannesvanderwhales

Soda with alcohol in it.

BuckWylde

Polar lime

edric

Ginger Ale. No caffeine and the sugar-free version is pretty good.

ColossalCoder

Ginger beer or Cherry Cola.

DrSleepless

Cherry pepsi

For the sophisticated sparkling beverage connoisseur.

teslasaur

For those uninitiated, it's a mix between orange and apple soda. Pretty fuckin good. My favourite has to be Portello or Julmust.

NineMileTower

Faygo Red Pop, Faygo Rok'n'Rye, Mt. Dew Baja Blast.

Edge004

Lime Jarritos or Fanta Green

ikidd

Beer.

MikeOToxin

It's gotta be root beer.

Every company makes it a little differently so there's a wide array of flavours within the one soda.

Bear & Beaver is specifically my favourite.

VanHalbgott [OP]

Oh, okay. Sorry everyone.

Kachajal

Just the chilled, filtered tapwater I carbonate at home.

Ludicrously cheap, the taste doesn't get old, and there's no trash to deal with. 10/10.
