McDonalds is going to start phasing out Orange Lavaburst Hi-C on May 1st. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


NOTHING PAIRS BETTER WITH FILET O FISH, YOU JACK ASSES!

It's getting replaced by some exclusive Sprite flavor.

I didn't even know any of them ever had any of those.  And I'm not that old school.  But even if.......fuck is wrong with you.  You get a Coke or a Sprite or maybe a Orange or Hi-C then you eat your shit and shut the fuck up

I have never seen a McDonalds with a Coke Freestyle machine. But that might be less of a McDonalds thing and more of a living in Maine thing.

I don't go to McDonald's too much but I can't think of a McDonald's with the freestyle that I've seen.  Other fast food chains getting them but don't recall a McDonald's with one that I've been to.

Blew my mind when I made a quick pass through Vegas last week - we did the buffet pass where you had 24 hours at any Harrah's property buffet and they had a Pepsi version of the Coke freestyle machine.  Didn't really go up and play with it but seemed like there were some interesting possibilities.

There's a new Mountain Dew flavor out for the summer. Dew.S.A is a straight combo of Code Red, White Out and Voltage, supposed to be like a bomb pop. I'm not usually one for soda but it's pretty tasty.

They're already popping up around here. I haven't tried one but a friend assured me it tasted great. I need to lay off soda again. It's a vicious cycle and right now I'm at the ''pains in the chest that go away when I stop drinking soda and anything else with caffeine'' phase.

Yeah I'm trying to no drink much soda lately myself but they had this in a vending machine at work so I had to grab one, I liked it.

DEW.S.A. is a Mountain Dew flavor that was released on April 28, 2017 to go along with the United States holiday's Memorial Day and Independence Day. The name "DEW.S.A." is meant to be a play on words as to sound like "U.S.A."

They actually just put the second World of Coke in Disney World as part of Disney Springs. You can get your photo taken with the Coke Bear and they'll put alcohol in your crazy foreign soda flavors. I force myself to drink a sample cup of Beverly every time I'm there as a tradition.

And Dew.S.A. is garbage, but that might be because I'm not a big fan of Voltage and it feels like the most overpowering of the three flavors.

Dew.S.A. is really weird in that it's advertised as Code Red, White Out and Voltage and you'd think that's just a catchy tagline but no it actually tastes exactly like you poured those three sodas together, each sip is a mystery as to which one will be the one you taste. It's not bad, it's certainly an interesting concept. I'm a fan of Voltage and Code Red and White Out is just meh so I tool less issue than Rando with the Voltage-heavy distribution.

Dew White Label just tastes like off-brand green Mountain Dew. Not awful but not worth the extra price, especially in comparison to the Black label.

Found a bottle of Sprite Cherry the other day and that was pretty good. I'm not a fan of the lemon-lime aftertaste I usually deal with in the 7-up/Sprite/Sierra Mist sodas, but the addition of cherry virtually wiped that out. Very smooth, very impressed.

Mrs. SFH had a brief root beer log going on. World Market had enough different root beers that she was able to do build your own 6 packs in the vein of craft beers. She doesn't have her notes anymore but said she can still identify the labels as to what was good.

Pepsi Fire. I was hoping it was just a remix of their Holiday Spice brand, but no such luck. It's Pepsi with an Atomic Fireball dissolved in it. Has a definite kick to it. Not bad but I don't think I'd get it again.

I grabbed one of these from the vending machine at work today, the cinnamon flavor seemed pretty low to me, was more of an aftertaste.

Coke Zero Is Gone Because We Live in a Grim Dystopia in Which Nothing Good Can Exist

Today, citing flagging sales, exciting new product developments, and an apparent desire to be complicit in the ongoing collapse of Western civilization, Coca-Cola announced that it will cease distribution of Coke Zero in the United States beginning in August

Upon further reading, it sounds like it's just a name tweak (Coke Zero Sugar) and a recipe change ("more like Coke"). I don't know how drastic the latter is supposed to be.

I had the new Coke Zero and it's basically a Malibu Stacy now with cowboy hat situation.

It seems a little sweeter, but overall not that much different of a taste. Pretty good overall.

Coke Zero rules and was the first step in easing me into drinking diet sodas instead of exclusively regulars, so I hope you're right Brocklock.

The name change is a good bit of branding actually. Including 'zero sugar' in the title and having the whole name sound that seamless will go a long way.

Coke freestyle machines are now holding a flavor called “North Pole Magic”, which I assume is their answer to Pepsi’s Holiday Spice.  I thought it was pretty good.  There’s also Coke Zero Sugar “Arctic Chill”, which I wonder could possibly be an early screening of the aforementioned Diet Coke Mango (seemed to have some orange syrup mixed in there), although someone with better taste buds could probably tell better

Am I the only fat fuck soda drinker left in this forum?

Pepsi Max is fantastic diet soda. Zero aftertaste. Relatively close to actual Pepsi flavor. New Coke Zero is meh at best.

I found a 20oz of White Out the other day in a Wal-Mart. It's better than I remember it being.
They had an entire soda cooler dedicated to the various 20oz Mt. Dew flavors, including Code Red, Voltage, and Livewire, so I was pretty stoked to see that outside of the tiny convenience stores I usually have to trawl.

I think most everything that isn't Pepsi Max/Cherry/Regular is awful and I don't think I even want to lay eyes on Pepsi with salted caramel in it. Yikes.

White Label Mtn Dew is a bit pricey but damn it's good. That "holiday" Dew is just kinda weird because when you hear that it's just a combo of Code Red and Regular you kinda think "so...they watered down Code Red?" because your brain tells you that Code Red is just regular Dew with a cherry flavor, but it kinda isn't. Also, as with the first statement, those 1800's Pepsi whatevers are total garbage. There's a citrus one and I'm curious but not so curious as to actually put it in my mouth, which was also my high school yearbook quote.

Haven't even seen the Salted Caramel out here.  Only holiday drinks I've seen are the Cranberry Sprite.  Don't know if Sierra Mist didn't do it this year but I liked the Sierra Mist Cranberry better.  My local store still had some of the Crystal Pepsi relaunch recently, so maybe they just don't keep up.

Think my most recent "adventure" was I never had the Dr Pepper Cherry before but loved it when I had some a few weeks ago, just bought some more.

I bought a 2 liter of Mountain Dew Ice because it was $1 even though I don't like Mountain Dew. It doesn't taste like Mountain Dew at all to me, all I taste is that awful artificial sweetner even though it DOES have sugar in it too. I ended up throwing it all out. I don't know what I was expecting.
