Default Coca-Cola

What is the best kind of Coca Cola Classic? I say from a McDonald's fountain, hands down. After that, can, bottle, 2 liter, glass bottle, or something else??

I loved the old style glass bottle from the machine. Look only .5 cent.

The 10-oz bottle is best IMHO. I buy the 2L bottles and go through a lot of them. Some fountains are great, some not so much.

Yuck to the can, tastes like tin.
Give me good old fashioned fountain-style Coke anytime, and don't try to fool me with Pepsi, I'll know!

355 ml Mexican Coke. It is made from cane sugar not high fructose corn syrup. It tastes like the "old" Coke and comes in the equivalent of a 12 oz. glass "Coke Bottle".

I love it and was buying at a local "organic" market for $32 a case. Now Costco sells it for $18 a case. Sorry organic market. For $14/case I can't support the little guy.



Take care,
Mike

I collect coke bottles. I don't have a lot, but what I have are very special.

I have german coke bottles that still have the dates on the bottom. Most are just after WW11

I have a bottle still filled with coke put out in 1976 It was a special addition, because of the year.

I just googled World War 11. Every single article or web page referred to it as World War II.

Stop changing my posts.

Ah... don't see where anyone changed any of your posts. Everything is as you posted it, and edited.

When you were quoted, the quote was intact.

You did quote a post from Luanne, that you made fun of, but no one changed anything.

Speaking of drinks you can't get anywhere, I discovered Barq's Red Creme Soda a few weeks ago in Grand Rapids, MI. Anybody care to ship me some?

I admit I added the lol smiley to your post. That is because your comment made me laugh. I didn't think you were trying to pick on Luanne I just think you are detailed oriented. It's a blessing and a curse isn't it. In the interest of harmony I post these websites. Enjoy.

Soda Finder : Buy Soda Here - Barq's Red Creme
Red Cream Soda - Buy it here!

I like sparring with you it's fun. I hope you see it the saw way.

I'm quite scary. Maybe not as scary as scrapple. Such a tasty looking gray color.

I would never eat meat the color. Morcela on bread yummy!!!

No, I have not needed to drink the 76 coke. I am sorry I did not say WWII, but I have a question for you. Did what you say make you feel better?

Default Which brand on princess

While we are on the subject of Coke and Pepsi, which do they serve on Princess? I had to bring my own caffeine free diet coke on NCL..3 /12 packs, but that left room for souvenirs on the way home. m

Thanks for posting this. It brought back memories of my childhood. My cousin and I would take our nickels over to the armory where they had a machine like that.

Like Judy, I too really limit my soda intake - since I know I have osteoporisis (spd. wrong, and when I use the sp. chck it wants me to buy a program. Had it set up once, but it keeps reverting back and I am sick of dealing with it - so if I spell something wrong - please deal with it).
Since I know it leaches calcium from my bones, I try to make responsible decisions on it - but I do love a pepsi every now and then.

I do love the look of a glass Coke bottle tho'.
