OK Peeps. I've been feeling a bit left out ever since coming to these forums. I am a 30 something guy who just doesn't care for beer or wine, so I can't really participate in either of the two largest threads on the Axiom forums, so I thought it only right to start a "non-alcoholic drink" thread here for others, both under-aged, or adults that just like something without the booze buzz.

So when you aren't throwing one back, or sipping on your wine, what are you drinking?

I am a big fan of Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, and a good tart lemonade. Better yet is when one of these is either so cold that it is a bit slushy, or just a full slush product on a hot day.

What about you?

I'm not really a pop drinker, but there are times when a nice, crisp gingerale takes the cake - Canada Dry being the classic choice up in these parts. Or the small-vendor Muskoka Dry Gingerale that comes in tall green bottles still.

A rootbeer float says 'it's your birthday' to me in one small sip - bliss!

I think that Coke rules! Although I don't mind Pepsi.

I think that Diet Pepsi, however, tastes better than Diet Coke, which is an abomination on the soda world. Diet Dr. Pepper tastes better still, and a good diet root beer (Like IBC) is not too shabby. The non-colas seem to do a better job of mimicking the taste of their sugared counterparts.

Sometimes I like to save some carbs by mixing Pepsi and diet Pepsi (or Coke and Diet Coke) in the same glass. I guess this was the philosophy behind Pepsi Edge and Coke C2, each of which seems to have died a quiet death. I especially liked C2, which was barely distinguishable from real Coke. I also miss its cool TV ads using Queen's "I Want to Break Free".

At least I still have Pepsi One. My wife says that they call it that because I am the One person who likes it.

Red sodas can be pretty cool, like Cheerwine, or if you are lucky enough to live in the Southeast, Budwine. Do they even make Budwine anymore?

Cool thread!

Coke. I don't drink Pepsi if I can avoid it. Definitely don't drink Diet--bleurgh...

I do like a good root beer, though! Currently my favorite is IBC. The superpremium stuff usually doesn't do it for me.

Reed's Raspberry Ginger Brew is also very tasty.

Diet Coke is my staple! Out of all diet pops, it's remains my favorite although it doesn't taste at all like regular Coke. In fact, it doesn't even taste like cola! However, as much as I like it's odd taste, I'll admit it's super nasty in mixed drinks. Blecch! As for Diet Pepsi, it tastes good, but it goes flat really fast.

LOL , that's funny.

My wife used to say the same thing to me regarding diet vanilla pepsi. It seemed as if I must have been the only one who liked it, considering the jack bunnies stopped making it.

I do like having a nice ice cold beer for dinner, or if I'm entertaining, but other then that I pretty stick with with diet pepsi, diet coke, diet dr pepper, or a good ol' root beer.

I used to love mr. pib, but the don't sell it here where I live. I'd have to drive up to KC to purchase it. Funny things is, there's one and only one, restaurant here that does serve mr. pib. I don't know what it is, but for some odd reason I find mr. pib to taste a little better then dr. pepper.

That's probably my biggest complaint about diet pepsi, it does go flat pretty darn quick. There's no fooling around with diet pepsi. One has to drink it pretty fast, or it isn't going to taste good for very long.

I'm not much of a pop drinker but when I do indulge give me some red cream soda. That is my favorite pop made. I mostly drink seltzer water with a twist of lime or lemon.
