    @Sauteed_Onion :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw:
    'Biscuits and Gravy Cereal'! I am so going to spread that around.

    As for the OP, the 'gorilla' (lol), Vanilla Coke, and Coca-Cola in general is absolutely gross. A friend of mine calls it 'Croaka-Cola', and I don't blame her (though she's a silly one herself).

    Actually, I'm not too fond of soda in general, though Pepsi, root beer or Schweppe's ginger ale is fine every now and then.
    If I want caffeine, I've coffee and plenty of chocolate. Usually.
    (Finances are slowly getting better as I start to have to see my doctors less and less often so I have more money for food...)

    @Marquise* Trout wine? I think Southeastern Asia has you beat there (unless I read the Korean incorrectly).

    Speaking of wine, I'd rather have a glass of red wine over soda any day.

    @VertigoAffliction recently I got to that same grocery and that Kelp wine, Trout wine and Salmon wine has disappeared. I was wondering if peoples realized... Sadly enough... There was a full fresh seafood section and... o_O Well the section didn't vanish but in my angle, the fish did! *insert twilight zone music*

    When I can get my hands on it, it's good. Usually the Zero variant one, though.

    I really like mixing a craft root beer or the Black Cherry Cream soda in with my diet Pepsi. All fountain types.

    I still remember when I went to a picnic and the person in charge of drinks brought some really off brand flavor of Dr. Pepper. I think it was diet vanilla strawberry something something Dr. Pepper. It was disgusting. In fact it was so bad I drove off to the nearby gas station to buy a Coke just because I needed something real to drink.

    Also I managed to get a picture of one of my friends right as she took a drink of it...that picture still reminds us of that picnic to this day over 10 years later.

    Kelp and trout wine...I bet that'd be pretty good for making seafood stock. Don't know about much else.
    @bgillisp Your story is hilarious. I think the only soda I've found that repulsive is Mountain Dew and all its copycats. They're all too thick and sweet for me. I mean...it's ALL sweet and thick but those are next level.

    Personally, I try to stick to green tea, black coffee, and seltzer for daily life. Though, I'm trying to cut down on all non-water beverages because I fancy the idea of having teeth. If I'm out I'll get a Coke Zero. That's the poison I pick, anyway. I know it's rubbish, too. Regular soda is so syrupy that I just physically can't stand it.

    @Ms Littlefish I can't stand most soda myself, but diet soda tastes like fountain soda without the fizz to me. Yuck. lol

    @VertigoAffliction Some are definitely fizzier than others, but most are also pretty gross. For me, diet Dr. Pepper and Coke Zero are the only two I really enjoy. Seltzer is my favorite because it's fizz I love, not the sweet so much. The most fizzy lemon-lime seltzer is a local South Florida brand and I don't live there anymore! Kroger's store brand is the second most fizzy, IMO. When I'm down to visit Florida I go to Publix and really treat myself to the super tickly stuff. :D

    I looked it up as I was curious. I think it was Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper.

    I'm with @Ms Littlefish here. A good, classic Dr Pepper is all I need to be beverage-happy (we don't get the diet ones here, sadly). A shame I don't have them a lot because they're stupidly expensive here. I don't want too many things in my sodas. Vanilla Coke is fine. One added flavour is enough for me. No need for stupidly crazy aroma adventures that make your taste buds go dizzy. :kaoback:

    I've had that Chocolate Cherry Dr.Pepper. I immediately went for a glass of wine afterwards.
    (One of those times where I was profusely vulgar offline because there are no 'clean' words to describe how disgusting it was.)

    I'm not even that fond of just plain Dr.Pepper (It's okay but there's better); I'd rather drink just about any soda over most beer though (I don't mind a few select beers but the majority of them are just gross to me); I would kick back a Rock or two with the AVGN if I ever had the chance.

    Most hard liquors, are meh to me, though I can appreciate vodka and rum, to a degree. In the right (or wrong) state of mind, I can do a bit of scotch, but that's as hardcore as I get. But it is rare if I drink any alcoholic beverage without a meal, and for good reason.

    I'd be a shoddy German if I didn't like beer, although there's certain kinds that I find too bitter. I do enjoy a good wine and the occasional mead, too. When it comes to hard stuff I'm about the same as you. And always have a meal to go with it!

    I also like to "spice up" my coffee or tea occasionally. But that's more a winter thing. Gotta be careful with heated alcohol though! :D

    I like red wine but red wine doesn't like me. I still like white when they're not too sweet! Beers, I'll do ales mostly, especially red ones. I don't mind some hops but there's definitely a point where it gets too bitter. Gin and whiskey are my liquors of choice. I actually rather dislike vodka. That said, I don't drink an awful lot because of my vestibular migraines. I also seem sensitive to it in other ways, physiologically. I'll have as little as one drink and often feel like my heart is leaping out of my chest. Strange, because it's a CNS depressant!

    @bgillisp Wooooooooo.... At first I thought it was a regional thingy (drinks and chips taste very different from one side to the other of the border), but I read Diet first and I thought uh-oh troubles as it usually translates bad with flavor. But Chocolate & Cherry added to a 32 blend of ingredients? Uuh? It is already hard to keep such complicated blend together but replace the sugar with plastic and dump it two flavors you hope to perfume the taste prominently with and... o_O eeeesh!

    @Zebestian I've had mulled mead; had plenty of that when I was visiting a friend of mine in Wales. It's okay, not something I'd drink everyday or even more than once in a while (kinda heavy to me). No kidding about heated alcohol though. Certain types can incinerate just by being heated to a mere 140 degrees F! (Now tell me you wanna use that in your fuel tank.)

    @Ms Littlefish That sounds like arrhythmia if I've ever heard of it. But I've never really heard of alcohol being a direct cause.
    I get migraines too, but I usually find that a glass of wine and/or a warm shower helps. More often than not, dealing with aerial pollutants triggers them (I avoid places where tobacco smoke can be thick for this reason-I'm also allergic).
    I enjoy most wines, but I grew up with red wine.

    Oh, this 'Coke and Rum' thing? Gross.
