I fell in love with European Orange Fanta when I went to Europe (thank God for Club Kitchen) but for some reason I persist in drinking the American version, which isn't bad, but the Euro version is so much better. It tastes more like orange, and not just orange flavored.
Second best cream soda I've had. The best is the local Fitz's brand in St. Louis. That is great stuff, and their root beer is awesome too.
And my favorite around home is chocolate Coke. My hometown has an old style soda shop with different flavorings and chocolate is the best. Everyone else seems to hate it and as far as I know I am the only person in town who gets it, but it is pretty darn good.

Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 1): Haven't had or even seen RC since about 1982 so I can't even remember what it tastes like LOL
Dude the fact that you were alive in 1982 worries me.
Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 1): Fortunatly, we don't get the American version in Canada ... unfortunatly, the European version (orange is my favourite) costs about $1 for a can if they have some in the import stores.
That doesnt count, you can get the Euro version here too. In fact I am sipping on a 2 Liter of Lemonic Fanta imported from Poland right now (along with a beer of course). Costs about $3,29 at my local supermarket.
One of the first things I do whenever I visit Greece is purchase a bottle of Fanta Orange and and a bottle of Fanta Lemonade. IMHO, European fanta is the best soft drink on the market. In Greece they make have an additional flavor that was quite good, but I can't recall what it was. Maybe tangerine.
Inside joke? I love Orangina. Its best drunk in Paris, followed by the first place I ever had one which is in the Boston Common, while eating an Au Bon Pain croissant and feeding another croissant to the pigeons.
Quoting LOT767-300ER (Reply 11): On a sidenote I was always a fan of Mirinda, not much really known in the US, I havent even seen it even at most Euro delis but I prefer the orange flavor to orange fanta.

Mountain Dew is a favourite of mine - unfortunately it's not sold ANYWHERE in the UK, at least not close to me because I'd spot that green can a mile away. I love it. I've had it in Denmark, it's sold in train stations. I bought 6 cans in Buddinge Train Station (For the locals) at something like 10DKK each because I can't get it anywhere else. The cashier did look at me rather strangely
Diet Coke No Caffeine is another - I can't drink the full fat version because it leaves me bouncing off the walls for hours. I've missed entire nights of sleep because I've had 1 can 8 hours before I got into bed. I don't drink a lot of caffeine so it has a very profound effect on me. It does taste more bitter, definitely but it's a small price to pay.
As for the fanta thing we have in this thread - I can agree. America, your fanta sucks. Import ours instead

In 1962 when i first moved to Egypt there was a drink called espatess, a Greek guy used to manifacture those in a green bottle and the cap did have a bee picture. It was lemony similar but better than 7UP. It slowely disapearred from the market. Best soda ever
I am drinking it at the moment, it is my favorite soda and fortunately available here in Germany since beginning of this month. I just bought the last two bottles at my local gas station, I will drink them now while watching Bundesliga.
Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 1): The absloute worst is Mezzo Mix or Spezi which is Coke mixed with Orange Fanta .... blech!
I like Mezzo Mix and Schwipp-Schwapp.
Quoting Kappel (Reply 13): I love regular Mountain Dew! Too bad it's impossible to get in the Netherlands...
It is available in Germany. The regular version has a different taste than the regular US version. The Code Red version however is tasting exactly like in the USA. In Spain is the regular version also available but it is tasting like in Germany.
I am also a fan of Big Red and Big Red Vanilla Float:
My favorite drink when eating a kebab is Uludag from Turkey:
There was a really great Kinley flavor available ten or more years ago, it was Kinley Herber Apfel (bitter apple), too bad that it was discontinued. I also liked Fanta Pink Grapefruit, it was a special version and was only available for a few weeks.

Quoting columba (Reply 20): Fanta Mango is also great but sadly not available anymore
Damn, how could I forget Fanta Mango? Pretty awesome stuf! It was available at the Esso gas station on the Ruhrallee in Essen long time after it was discontinued in every other store. I always stopped there on the way from DUS airport to buy a few cans.

Anything made with real sugar. None of this corn syrup crap that American companies use for their US products. Real sugar stuff actually tastes noticeably better than corn syrup--my folks--both born and bred Americans--can't stand the taste of Pepsi or Coke, but they love the stuff when its made with real sugar.
My problem with Mountain Dew is that it reminds me of college. Rather than drink coffee or become addicted to red bull and god knows what else energy drinks, I used Mountain Dew to help keep me up. I affectionately referred to it as my rocket fuel, but the only problem with that is that now I think it tastes like rocket fuel.
I've gone cold turkey off of it since college, but will probably be IV'ing the stuff when I start law school in the fall. Am not looking forward to it, but I figure I might as well stick with what works.
