I do drink soda. I like a strange kind though.lol.It's called Mello Yellow and made by Coca Cola company. When I went west,they had never even heard of it.lol. I drink a 20 oz bottle a day. I know it's terrible for me but sometimes I can't resist it. Do you drink soda? What's your favorite? If you don't drink soda..what do you like to drink?

As f last year when I tasted Orange Juice at Rituals, I completely stopped drinking all soda for a while. It was GOOD. Most people seem to be drinking juice these days in the Caribbean esp. Tampico though I doubt you may have heard of it.

Tampico is pretty good and taste a lot like Sunny D.. We have it in TN, but it isn't as poplular as Sunny D, a lot better deal but still not as popular..

I have heard of Tampico! We do have that here as Donna stated. I keep a huge jug of orange juice in the fridge all the time because I like it too. I'll have to try it the next time I'm at the store. Thanks for the response.

yes, I do but I won't say that I am a fond of it. If someone offers me then I can go and drink it but just for the sake of drinking, I don't think I would do that.

You are always welcome. I use to drink soft drinks only. I have had hard drinks too but I don't like the taste and that's why I don't go for them. I drink only for taste. My favorite soft drink is Fanta from Coca cola company!

Fanta is good! Do you like the grape or orange? My kids like the grape.

I enjoy lemon lime sodas, orange soda, and Mountain Dew, but I hate cola. I only drink one 12oz. can a week at most. I can't imagine the health hazards of drinking 20 oz. or so everyday. After that would probably cause your teeth will rot, unless you brush and floss them every day.

LOL..hi k46620. I do drink a 20 oz a day but so far so good on my health and teeth. I visit the dentist regularly. I'm in pretty good health as far as I know and my weight is ok . That's not to say I won't pay for it in the future though. I am trying to cut back but sometimes it's hard. Thanks for your response!

Yeah, 20 oz. is some what bad, but I have heard of much worse. My great aunt once had the habit of drinking about a dozen 12 oz. cans a day, fortunately she's stopped that.

Actually I do not drink of lot of soda, or aerated drinks generally although on the odd hot day when I am driving the truck, I might feel like a can providing that it is really chilled that is. It would be a rare thing though and is often just a change from water or sometimes cordial that I drink. At one stage my one of my daughters used to drink Mello Yellow but I have no idea who made it or even if it is still available here in Australia. I will have to ask her next time we talk on the phone as she might have some idea. There is no guarantee of that as from memory it was about 8-10 years ago when it was alls he would drink. Now given a choice, I will drink a brown brew, made with hops and pure nectar. Just cannot drink it when I am going to be driving though.

Yes, even though I know I shouldn't because I have bad kidneys. My weakness is for ABC rootbeer in the glass bottles. However, I only buy that about once a month usually when I'm having my period because I'm kind of angry.

I used to love Mello Yellow, but I can't find it anymore. I didn't think they made it anymore. I drink more soda than anything else. I drink it in the morning instead of coffee. My co-workers tease me for it, but really they have their coffee...I have my soda. Diet Pepsi is my favorite. I used to drink Coke classic all the time until I switched to diet. I really don't like Diet Coke so I have since become hooked on Diet Pepsi.

I remember when Mello Yello furst came out and I used to drink it. I wasn't aware that it was still made. I usually drink Gatorade these days, especially when I've been working out or practing my dance skills and I get all sweaty.

I think it's only available in mine and a few surrounding states now. With you doing all that working out and dancing it is probably better that you don't drink it anymore. Gatorade is a better choice for you. Thanks for the response.

I don't drink sodas, though I drink milk for breakfast, water before class starts, coffee during class and iced tea during meals. Sodas are too acidic they make me sick, and apart from that they're bad for my voice. My voice is part o' my asset because I use it to sing in church every sunday.

Some people are sensitive to things. You may even have an allergy to something in sodas. It's nice that you sing in church. Keep that voice in good shape. Thanks for responding!

Hey jen! I do drink soda and lots of it! I drink diet coke. I usually drink the store brand because I drink so much of it and it is cheaper to buy the big 3 liter bottles. It takes getting used to the taste, but it's ok. I can drink soda 24/7! I do drink green tea in the winter to warm up, but I still have my diet coke most of the day when I'm not drinking my tea or an occasional hot cocoa!

Yes, I do drink sodas. Not every day, but often enough. The soda I drink the most is either Pepsi or Coke. I'm really not picky about that, though my fiance is. He drinks pepsi. But for me, it doesn't make much difference. Put one or the other in front of me and I'm happy.

I do drink soda. I drink a few glasses of it a day. I used to be an avid Pepsi drinker but I've been converted to a Coke drinker because it's all my school serves and it's all I have access too that is free so I don't have to spend anything to drink it.

I drink colas and it doesn't have to be any particular brand, as long as it is diet and caffeine free.. I drink a glass a day, more or less.. I love Mello Yello also but I had never thought of it as being a local drink, I had never thought of it one way or the other but if asked, i would figure everyone knew about Mello Yello.. When my son was growing up, this was his favorite drink and when he would get his work, school or home, finished, we would take a walk to a little corner store and get a Mello Yello and a Star Crunch bar, they are made by Little Debbie and taste about like the Girl Scout Samoa's.. But I do still have to have my glass of coke every day..

Heyya Donna! I love star crunches! It is not so much a local drink as a southeastern drink. Anywhere above Kentucky..none..below Georgia..none...west of Arkansas..none. I was shocked when I left the state and asked for it and everyone looked at me like I was nuts.lol. I like a glass of coke with ice every now and again too. Thanks for responding.
