    If I had to I'd say Classic but I'm really a big time Gatorade drinker.
    Love that stuff :)

    I drank coke "classic" for years (when I was much younger) but now I find it's much too hard on the tummy. The only soft drink I drink now is Canada Dry gingerale-unless I'm having a drink of rye, then the pop mix has to be coke. :D

    I like pepsi. Doesn't leave your teeth with that grimmy sugar feeling. BUT over all pop's I would chose gingerale...any brand gingerale.

    But do you guys remember Wilson's Golden Amber GA or Vernor's (which I understand may still be available in Canada.)

    Ah sweet nectars of my youth.

    And why does everybody over 70 nominate Schweppes as #1? Can't fathom it!

    And BTW, what ever became of honey dew?

    :)

    I chose pepsi. Coke classic is second. I used to be strictly Dr Pepper , however the use of corn fructose started in '83 I think it was. After that Dr Peppers were always to darn sweet

    I drink a pepsi nearly every night, but it has to be out of the can. It doesn't taste as good when it's in a glass. Those diet drinks are atrocious!!

    Honey Dew was/is(?) a delicious orange drink which we used to enjoy at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto in the 50's. As I remember it, it was a soda I think but it must have been mixed with real OJ cause it had flecks of oranges in it.

    It was sold at hot dog stands called Honey Dew (I think) which were actually run by a chain of restaurants in Canada called Honey Dew Restaurants.

    When I started work after high school in Toronto, I remember I used to breakfast on fresh hot corn muffins and honey dew at one of the restaurants in downtown Toronto near The Prudential building where I worked at King and Yonge Streets.

    Pru is no longer there I don't think. It was a wonderful company to work for with some great products and wonderful people. It's a company that sure has a checkered history now. I wonder how it's doing now and if it was affected seriously by September 11th?

    I am sure this must be fascinating stuff! Thanks for reading this far. Got any interesting memories of your first job?

    I've gotta say Manzana Lift is BY FAR the best ever. Candy... do you guys get that stuff in Acapulco? I have only seen it in Mainland Mexico. (I guess you don't ever pop in here to Never-Never Land, but just checking) Great stuff... anyway, I choose Pepsi over Coke, because even though it is the "classic", and I drink it more often than Pepsi, it tastes too kinda starchy... (then why the hell do I drink it?) ...ya got me.

    What is it with you Canadians and your gingerale? Is that stuff really THAT good? It seems like it is your national pastime. I always thought it was maple syrup or something... I don't know. lol... I'm only joking, but seriously, I haven't had gingerale since I was about 5, and it might have been in Canada, who knows... what is so special about it? I think I will have to go pick up some and find out for myself... (sorry for barging in on this all-Canadian discussion of gingerale.)

    Wen - Lowcocks came in glass litre bottles, and were delivered by the 'pop man' on his truck!
    They had all the usual awful sweet flavours - Cherryade, Limeade Orangeade etc, but also Strawberry and Bubblegum flavours.

    Do you remember Quattro? That was my favourite as a kid. Well, that or Top Deck Cider (0.2% alcohol)!!

    Also, I wouldn't want to forget Soda Stream - pop so poor you had to make it yourself! My favourite was Giggly Monsters!!
