Filed under: lists

I think this years list is a lot better than Last year’s

Best (not in any order)

  • Rockstar Juiced Up {1,2}
  • Diet Gold Peak
  • Tab Energy
  • Vault (I said that I liked diet better originally, but I’ve since changed my mind).
  • Seven Eleven Green Cream Soda
  • Dole Fruit Sparklers
  • Bubble Yum Soda (regular flavor)
  • Spearmint Metromint Water

  • The Cinnabon Drinks
  • Inko’s Lychee White Tea
  • Starbucks Double Shot Light
  • Bolthouse Perfectly Protein Mocha & POM Tea (both are mentioned in the same entry)
  • The Godiva drinks
  • Mountain Dew MDX being put in 20 oz bottles, and Pepsi dropping the awful diet version
  • Quaker Milk Chillers (this may be a border line 2005/2006 product I’m not sure)
  • Minute Maid Light Cherry Limeade
  • Minute Maid Orangeade
  • Worst (not in any order)

  • Black Cherry Vanilla Coke & Diet Coke –I ended up hating both of these by the summer
  • Lemon Lime Dasani Senstions
  • Berries & Cream Dr Pepper
  • 100% Natural 7Up (my ass)
  • Sobe Life Water (all 2,447 varities of it)
  • Starbucks Strawberry & Cream Frappichino
  • Starbucks Iced Coffee Light
  • Slice One Berry (I never got to try grape or orange)
  • The revamped Aquafina Sparkling
  • Dasani Grape
  • Pomegranate Izze
  • Special K 2o
  • Pepsi Jazz (both flavors, even if Strawberry was the only one mentioned here, and it still holds the title of “busiest label ever”)
  • Tropicana Fruit Squeeze
  • Diet 7up’s reformulation
  • There is still a few weeks left of the year, so maybe I can try to find more new drinks.

    A friend showed me the link to Iggy Pop’s concert rider, and I just liked the description of the drinks the rider requests for the band:

    The one about the cranberry juice makes me laugh the most.

    What drinks would you put on your rider if you were famous? Me? Probably:

    Diet Coke
    Skyy Vodka or Absolut (flavored)
    Coffee (something nice like french roast coffee)
    Evian

    Yeah, that’s probably it. I’m not that picky.

    I did a Soda Inventory in my closet (where I keep my soda at) yesterday when I couldn’t go online:

    26 Cans Diet Coke With Lime
    17 Cans Coke With Lime
    21 Cans Diet Coke Vanilla
    17 Cans Diet Coke
    8 12 oz. bottlesDiet Coke*
    7 Cans Pibb Xtra
    9 Cans Caffeine Free Diet Coke (yes, I finally tried it after putting it off after all these years)
    1 Can Coke C2
    2 Mini Cans St Nick’s Cola
    2 Mini Cans St. Nick’s Holiday Punch
    2 Cans Jones Green Apple (yucky!!)
    2 Mini Cans Jones Scary Berry (yucky!!)
    3 Mini Cans Jones Candy Corn (yucky!!)
    2 Mini Cans Jones Caramel Apple (kinda yucky!!)

    That’s 119 Cnas of soda in my closet as of yesterday evening. They all come from soda sales and soda I just didn’t like (ie: The Jones Sodas)

    *= last week at Food Lion, they had a 4/$10 deal on Coke and if you bought four you got a free pack of the little 12 oz bottles.

    Everybody does a Best and Worst of the year list, right?

    Best Sodas/Drinks Of The Year

    Coke With Lime
    Nestea Ice (with the menthol stuff in it)
    Frawg (Seven Eleven Exclusive)
    Peach Fresca

    (ok, this doesn’t really count, but nevertheless) I like the new packaging of the Jolt Sodas.

    Worst Sodas Of The Year

    Coke Zero (I think my hatred for this soda stems from it being overhyped by members of the Bevnet message boards.)
    Diet Coke With Splenda
    Lipton Green Tea
    Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper
    The new 7up Plus flavors.
    Mountian Dew Pitch Black II. (if I had made this list last year, the original Pitch Black would be on the best list, but this second version was yucky)
    Pibb Zero
    Jones Halloween Flavors (Target Exclusive)
    Black Cherry Fresca (I think I forgot to take a pic of this stuff for a review)
    Sugar Free MDX

    (doesn’t really count, but I think that Diet Rite’s new packaging is SO lame.)
