Anyone like Cheerwine? I'm sad it stopped distribution in these parts.

I like it. In California, you should be able to find it at Bevmo, though it's expensive.

It's nice. I can find it in Cracker Barrel's store section.

Oh man, I haven't had Cheerwine in forever. Or Leninade, or Moxie.

I need to get to a BevMo ASAP!

So, I tried the replacement for Coke Zero. Here's how that went.





It's actually pretty good! It's got a spicy smell and a sweet, pleasant flavor that ends with a watery finish. (Hint: drink it straight. Ice only waters it down more.) It's still a diet soft drink, but it comes closer to tasting like Coke Classic than the original Coke Zero (and I can confidently say that, as I have both in the house). This isn't a New Coke situation... I think people are going to be happy with the changes they've made.

I've had a few sodas from India, and they're all really good.

Jarrito's nuclear mango is beautiful, sugar-sweetened, and tastes just a little like the flavor I get in my mouth when I drive past the DOE facilities

After further taste-testing, Coke Zero Sugar seems to give me a bit of a tummyache. Maybe too much citric acid and carbonation?

I tried a bottle recently, too. My verdict is that the taste is still similar to the Coke Zero we love, but better.

I like Cheerwine. Not something I'd get every week (With the exception of ginger ale I can tolerate only so much citric soda before I get sick of it and need a good cola or Dr. Something as a palate cleanser), but it's got a great flavor.

Shame its placement in stores is so sporadic, though. Like Tab, it can be hard to find regularly, even at stores that you know have had it.
