Worst Soda Flavor?

Recommended Posts

  For a long time, I thought the Texas bubble gum-flavored Big Red was the all time nadir.

  Then I moved overseas and met "Bon Bon Anglais" a carbonated banana monstrosity.  It looks innocuous enough, clear like Sprite and has a vague coconut aroma.  One sip and I look like I'm drinking scotch.

  How about you? Is there a diet drink that distresses your taste buds? A flavor that makes you shudder?

I know it's a heinous rejection of my ethnic heritage (and I hesitate calling it the worst ever), but I could never wrap my taste buds around Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Orange soda and Mountain Dew are fit only for teenagers.

Yes, but Mountain Dew has serious caffeine.

Toni Col is a Mexican vanilla flavored soda that is so sweet my teeth ache just typing the name of it.  It is one of those things that I keep getting sucked into in the hopes I will like it "this time'.  Usually I love all things vanilla, but  love eludes me with this.    I don't care for sodas in general. To me, bubbles belong in champagne, and nothing else.

I really don't mind most any kind of soda, I love carbonation.  However, I do not like Dr. Pepper which tastes like cough syrup.  I also don't like diet tonic water.

Irn-Bru is pretty vile.  So why do I keep buying it whenever I am in Scotland...?

  What flavor is Irn-Bru trying to replicate? Is it marketed to children or adults?
