Mexican coke I think has a better flavor.

Agreed. Real sugar for the win!

Being in Canada sure sucks for choice & availability.

 

Being a diabetic Type 2, I am limited to Crush Orange & Crush Cream Soda

Extremely allergic to Aspartame, Acesulfame K & etc

Stevia = spastic bowel

 

There used to be Coke & Pepsi colas with Splenda (Sucralose) but alas - no more

 

What I wouldn't give for a Splenda cola once in a while... :wub:

- that was available up here


Regards,

 

Doug

If you're near the New York border, you might be able to find this line of diet soda, all sweetened with Splenda:

Pepsi still makes Pepsi One, but it isn't available everywhere.

Thanks, Rich

 

I am about 1hr or so away BUT with all the border & custom (both sides) hassles & delays nowadays,

I am not willing to put up with that nonsense for a cola. But maybe if RC had a Splenda cola  :)

or if there was a Splenda root beer - damn the torpedoes full speed ahead... !!!!


Regards,

 

Doug

Does anyone in the northeast know of any store, chain or independent, that carries a selection of ginger ales and ginger beers?

 

I thought my local supermarket used to, but there's nothing there now except those used as "mixers":  Schweppes, Canada Dry, Seagrams, that kind of thing.

It just so happened a family friend visited the other night, and brought a few cans of a very ginger-tasting ginger beer I had never tried before.  (We're on Long Island, he splits his time between LI and NYC, so I'm not sure where they came from - I've just asked and will let you know if I get an answer.)

 

I recently bought a Sodastream machine and I like their "Naturally Sweetened" line's Ginger Ale (made with cane sugar and not a blend of splenda as their "normal" mixes are).

Charles, turns out the one I tried was called - Gosling's Ginger Beer - our family friend forget the name of the store he got it from, but it was just a local beer distributor on Long Island.  If you've got either a beer distributor or beverage barn type place near you, check them out - even though it's mostly beer, those kinds of stores usually have a nice variety of different sodas, ginger ales, etc.

I think I encountered my first "freestyle" machine in the 50's and at 25cent movie matinees.  The Vogue theater had this soda machine where a paper cup is plopped down and you select your soda flavor.  I, and other kids, discovered that if you continued to punch the flavor buttons, the machine would start dispensing that latest button choice.  One could keep punching buttons until the cup was full.  The machine didn't overfill the cup.

 

At 8 years-old, I came up with some very bad flavor combinations…but I seemed to like them as I would continue to freestyle it.  Ah, to be young and stupid again.  :)
