anyone else likes it?

I like it, JB. Look in a local pizzaria, I find many of them sell it. It's actually pretty common in Ontario, even in the supermarkets.


Brio is the brand, Chinotto is the drink. (like Pepsi and Cola). Brio is made in (or at least distributed out of) Montreal (so Google says).

Very good with a veal sandwich.

I don't know about availability in Quebec, but in Ontario, Sobeys and Zellers both carry a chinotto made by San Pellegrino in Italy. San Pellegrino's mineral water is nice and they make other soft drinks with it. Try the Aranciatta if you find it - orange, but refreshing, not sweet.

A few years ago (okay, maybe 20), I ordered a rye and coke in a cafe on St Clair West in Toronto. It tasted odd so I questioned it. Oops, we opened a can of Brio by mistake, no charge sir. I paid for the next three or four...

So I have been hooked on Pepsi Throwback lately. My wife keeps drinking diet Cherry Pepsi, but I can't stand the artificial sweeteners. By "can't stand" not only do taste it in ANYTHING that has it and hate the aftertaste, but I actually get sick to my stomach from it.

Unfortunately for her, whenever we are out for a meal, it is always diet Coke, which she doesn't really like the flavor of. I did hear of something that helps though. Diet Coke plus a "hit" of Dr. Pepper makes it taste a lot like non-diet Cherry Coke. I've never tried it, but my wife agrees that it works.

Now, I don't drink pop much at all any more, which is better than anything (drinking mostly water), but sometimes I just need that ice cold pop.

Anything interesting Pop/Soda wise that people have tried lately?

Pepsi is literally flavored with Aborted Fetus for flavoring.

Source among many others: http://www.naturalnews.com/035276_Pepsi_fetal_cells_business_operations.html

Also their is Aspartame for Sweetener which is Bacteria Fecal Matter.

I've tried the addition of a small part of Dr. Pepper to a diet soda (both Coke and Pepsi) to make it taste like Dr. Pepper.

Other random tidbits:

- I had a can of Diet Pepsi this afternoon.

- I keep Coke Zero in the house as my usual nightly soda.

- I was bummed when the Costco food court changed from Coke to Pepsi.

- Our Costco now carries Mexican Sprite (cane sugar!) as well as Mexican Coke. I think they're down to about $17 or so for a case of the 12 oz bottles.

- I enjoy the Coca-Cola Freestyle fountains where available.

The reason that Coke Zero has no calories is because the human body sees it as poison and as such evacuates it from your system accordingly, hence you get Zero Calories....Enjoy

I had to laugh at your post with a bemused admiration. I guess if you're gonna hate, at least hate with gusto and, whether intended or not, humor.

If you had read the whole article, you'd have seen this section:

"To be clear, the aborted fetal tissue used to make Pepsi's flavor chemicals does not end up in the final product sold to customers, according to reports -- it is used, instead, to evaluate how actual human taste receptors respond to these chemical flavorings."

Don't be ignorant, indeed.

Hey, did you know, there are millions of bacteria pooping in your mouth right this second?! They're having sex, swapping DNA, all that stuff.
