I prefer fruit juices; forget about the nutrients, I just like the taste better! At my house, the only things I drink are either water, tea, or fruit juices. Carbonated beverages makes me burp (I don't burp out loud, but it's still a bad feeling) and they have so much sugar my teeth hurt. I make the exception with energy drinks, though, since sometimes I need them to get up in the morning (or stay up all night).

yes, carbonated drinks have so much sugar that may destroy our teeth.. also, i've read something about soda and it says there that, soda is preferably used for dish washing and cleaning the sink... i've tried it and wow, it can clean a lot better than other cleaning liqiuds... try it! hehehe...

It depends on the mood i am in, when i am badly thirsty i go for soda but other times i prefer fruits juice. Fruit juices contains all the vitamins that our body needs and it keeps us away from dehydration. Its better to drink natural fruit juices than those chemicals which might harm our body.

I would also prefer drinking fruit juice as I think along with being healthier its more refreshing. It gives energy. In general I dont like soda. So I'll surely go with fruit juices that provides me with nutrients, improves my health, refreshes me and are no injurious to health.

These days, I sometimes go for diet soda, but because fruit juices are more nutritious, I also go for them. However, more often than not, I order for iced tea...

most of us go for fruit juices, the availability of the product at eateries is highly the main cause why we go for sodas when eating out. it is good now that they have iced tea readily available too aside from these sodas.

Soda. Well, I never had time to make my own fruit juice so I have to buy it in the food courts. Problem is that these merchants make money out of it. Fruit juice is very expensive and they add so much ice and some horrible ones add water. They use bad fruits to make the juice as well. I have seen it for myself.

I prefer fruit juice. There are good vitamins in juice and not as much sugar as soda. Soda especially is really bad for the teeth as it's a sugar overload.

whenever i eat and fruit juice is available, i will always go for it, unless of course the price is quite prohibitive. you must have noticed that other eateries have their natural fruit juices unreasonably priced. i prefer the taste of natural fruit juices over that of soda. there are also health considerations, of course, as you have pointed out in this discussion. we know that sodas will not do us good aside from causing some illnesses in our bodies to come about.

yes i would also prefer fruit juice than soda because it's more nutritious and i avoid drinking too much soda since it can be bad for my health. fruit juice is better since i love fruits and they are rich in vitamin C which can improve your immune system. and i really need vitamins because i catch a cold easily. hehe =)

I wish i could say fruit juices :P. I love sodas despite the knowledge of its bad effects to our body system. But because my doctor told me not to drink it anymore so I stop. I agree that fruit juices have more nutrients and vitamins in it. Am starting to like them - some fruit juices I drink includes apple, orange, grapes and grapefruit - this one doesn't taste good but I use this for my diet =).
