How do you buy your soda?

By the two liter bottle? Maybe a twelve pack or maybe even by the case. I usually buy it by the twelve pack. Seems that I don't go through it as fast. My son and his wife buy it by the two liter because she can't drink that much at one time and it saves on wasting part of a can. So how do you buy your soda?

I will usually buy the 12 pack when I am at the commissary as they tend to have a good deal price on one brand or another. This is about once a month for me. Sometimes I will pick up a 2 liter for the kids on the weekend as a treat - but not usually - also maybe once a month or so.

I buy a 2 liter as me and my hubby dont drink soda so when we are buying its for a party. And well its easier to have 2 liters for a party for sure.

It depends on what kind I am buying. Coke products I usually buy in a case of 24. Others are 12 packs unless 2 6-packs are on sale for less than a 12 pack costs. I very rarely buy bottles of soda. When I am out sometimes I will buy a 20 ounce soda or a fountain soda.

I don't drink much soda anymore- in fact I went for about 6 months or so not drinking any until hubby bought some (ggrrr...) Anyway- he buys 2 liters...I hate soda out of 2-liters...it tastes different to me and goes flat within a day. Yuck. When I drank it daily, I preferred cans and I bought it by the case. Good question!

I drink a Fanta Strawberry each day so a 12 pack lasts 12 days for me unless my grandson is here then he loves to drink one too. I used to be hooked on Dr.Pepper and would drink them like water. Now ever so often I will get a fountain Dr.Pepper or Coke or even a Pepsi, but not too often.

I only get a 2 liter when we are having pizza. That way we finish it in one setting.I usually get the 12 pack of cans. I don't like flat soda and if I start a 2 liter, I won't finish it while it still has its fizz.

A 2 liter is nice too when you have company so there aren't alot of half drank cans sitting around. Thanks for posting.

i don't usually buy soda because i prefer fruit juices. but if i do buy a soda, i would buy the one or 1.5 liter bottle enough for a lot of people at home. but if i'm going to buy just for myself, i usually buy the smaller bottle.

No more soda in our household since my husband was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes a few months back - it's water here on out, except the apple juice I buy for my son's lunches.

That's a very good reason not to buy soda!

If I am going to drink the soda in the car I buy it in a plastic bottle with a screw cap. If I am drinking it at home I usually buy a 12 pack of cans. I only buy the 2 liter bottles if someone is sick and wants some 7up or sprite. It seems like it goes flat faster in the big bottle.

I like the bottles with lids. (small ones) That way, they don't get flat as fast. They cost more; but in the end they save you money. (As long as you refuse to drink flat soda anyway).

I don't care for flat soda myself!

I buy my soda, which we call pop around here! lol, by the 12 pack, usually. It depends on how I can get it at the best buy. I rarely buy 2 liter bottles as I think it is more difficult to store it that way. I also recycle the cans and the pop can tabs. My grand daughter takes the tabs to school for some project or another. Sometimes I buy the 24 pack cans if it is on sale and is a better buy than the 12 pack cans are.

Lately I've been buying it by the two liter bottles. Am a big Pepsi drinker and really won't drink as much if I have to mess around with fixing a glass of ice or pouring the soda into a glass bottle. We have a cat and if I use cans, she drinks from the top. I love the cat but don't care to share.

I always buy my pop in 12 packs...I don't use the liter bottle because I usually don't get it used fast enough and the "fizz" goes out of it. I can always drink a whole can.

I normally buy it by the case it ends up being cheaper that way in the long run for me.

Yes...and when walmart has a special it's a really good price for a case.

I really don't drink hardly any soda at all. If I get in the mood, I will buy either a single can or a 20 ounce bottle. But, that's maybe once or twice a month. I usually drink diet, but those artificial sweeteners sometimes gives me headaches. Also, the sugar in regular sodas makes me pretty sick as well. So, I mostly drink water or milk.

If it gives you a headache I can see why!

You will be surprised to know that we hardly buy any kind of soda! We are used to drinking a lot of water with and after meals and I buy soda only when some guests are expected or if I am throwing a party. The primary reason for not buying soda is also my 2 year old daughter, she is always ready for a sip and I don't want her to form a habit of drinking soda. Just like us, I want that she drinks water most times. But when I do buy, its usually the 2 liter Bottle.
