Soda Preference?

Okay guys, curious here (to see if I'm alone) but I'm just wondering people's soda preference.

My drink of choice has changed over the years but currently its ...


Diet Mountain Dew. Yum.

Do people love soda as much as I do?

So bad for me, yet so good for me.

P.S. I'm weird but I prefer my soda from the tap, with a straw, & a little bit of ice. Seriously... I'm a weirdo. I'll admit it. Everyday.

We are twins! Diet Mountain Dew is my favorite and sometimes I go the long way to work to pick up a Diet Mountain Dew from the tap at the Circle K! Now all Circle Ks have it, but I know 2 that do. If they dont... I get sad! I need to caffine de-tox. I will some day!

stephanie said...

diet dr. pepper (I used to hate the stuff) or diet coke. I'm trying to cut down - but it's a good way to satisfy a "sweets" craving.

Kristie said...

When I am allowed to drink caffine, it is Dr. Pepper, flat and cold.
My hubby has banned me from drinking caffine while I am pregnant or breast feeding. So while that is happening, I am a Country Time Strawberry Lemonade kind of girl.

Dawn said...

Diet Dr. Pepper with lots of ice. Practically ice flavored with Diet Dr. Pepper. I'm an ice-cruncher.

Not really a soda drinker. I don't know if it's the flavor or the carbination or what; I've just never really cared for it. I like plain old water. And sparkling water too--love the stuff. Feels healthier to drink water too.

Katie said...

Any Mountain Dew = yuck!!!

I love love love Diet Dr. Pepper, but I have majorly cut back since I started exercising. Just makes me feel too bloated.

Ashley said...

I'm a big diet dr pepper lover! I tried diet mtn dew for the first time a few weeks ago and it made me totally sick. I also prefer it from the tap with a straw. If I get canned soda I pour it into a cup and use a straw.

Trying to drink more water though.

Ashley said...

Meredith - totally! I think that my mom's strict "no caffeine" rule when we were growing up made me go right out and try it when I was older :) Could be worse things to rebel with! But I do see a difference in my mind and body when I go weeks without caffeine.

Christie said...

This niece is still on the straight and narrow! Well, except for a few (very few)times a year to stay awake while driving or a really bad headache or something. And then just a few ounces does the trick. But I seriously have enough addictions in my life without that one and feel drawing the line there made so many other choices so much easier.
Love rootbeer and I'm not picky about the brand. Sometimes it just has to be lemon-lime, though. Craved rootbeer while pregnant with Elizabeth and now she LOVES it, Craved lemon-lime with Jeb, curious to see what happens there.
Soda is a special occasion treat in our house. Can go weeks, even months without it.

James said...

IBC Root Beer in the bottles FTW!

No caffeine except for rare emergencies. Dr. Pepper is the preference for that.

Flat classic coke was used as a treatment for the runs growing up.

Amber said...

Diet Coke! No exceptions, no substitutes... thats it... I will drink it just about any way but my favorite is from a fountain with ice and through a straw... but like I said, I am not picky when it comes to that!

lindsey said...

coke zero is my fav, but I have been caffiene free for 6 weeks... i drink diet caffiene free but it isn't the same.

Michelle said...

Hi Olivia, my name is Michelle and I found your blog through Dawn B. I love it! And I am a serial soda drinker.....it is 8:30 in the morning and I have already downed a liter of coke zero. I seriously love anything diet, I know it sounds weird but the leased stuff is too much for me.

hotpants™ said...

I've always been a Coke girl. I've recently started drinking Coke Zero since it doesn't have sugar, but I can't give up the caffeine. I'm with you. It always tastes better from a fountain than a bottle or can. I will drink Pepsi if someone doesn't have Coke. It's a travesty though.

Jacky Cheng said...

although i rarely drink soda, i'm definitely all for sprite or gingle ale:)

MEREDITH said...

Diet Coke!!! And nothing is more refreshing then a soda from the tap and ice! I am right there with you on that one!

Ms. Erin said...

Diet Coke in a can. I won't have it any other way.

Elana Johnson said...

That's my husband's favorite. Mine is ginger ale. Yum!

MommyLovesStilettos said...

Fountain soda is LOVE :)

brooke said...

If I'm all alone and on a long drive, I will pick up a 44oz or however big the huge size is and fill it with Dr. Pepper! LOVE IT!
Only have it about once or twice a year.

Lyric said...

My favorite is root beer but I will pretty much drink anything with ice from a tap, like you said. I can't stand that burn when you drink something cold straight out of bottle. My husband, on the other hand, has always thought carbonation was gross...lucky for him.

Cindy said...

Pepsi.. I can't believe how many coke/diet coke lovers there are Pepsi is WAY better ;). I always try to quit... but a soda on ice with a straw is the ONLY way I like to drink it.

Debbie / Cranberry Fries said...

Wow. Ask a little soda question and everyone is around! :)

My favorite is Diet Coke and Dr. Pepper. They are heaven.

And I'm so with ya on them tasting better from the tap. With ice. In a straw. I think thats a big reason I dont often have it in my house is because it's just not the same in a can.

monica said...

i LOVE soda. which i used to call pop but have made the switch.

i do love me a good soda with cherry in it. whether its coke with cherry, or dr pepper with cherry or 7up with cherry. i will usually grab that first before any other soda. (unless it is some fancy brand soda with a cool bottle and design THEN that is first)

Saffron said...

I see only one other Pepsi drinker in your comments! regular Pepsi, cold, in a can with a cocktail straw. I don't like fountain or bottles, but will drink it if I Have to. I love Pepsi "slurpees" (slushes?) at well.

DAViN said...

OOhhhh Code Red Mountain Dew. or caffeine free Mountain Dew (sometimes the caffeine gives my anxiety.) i don't dig diet, but i'll only drink one 2 or 3 times a month to make it even more of a treat.
