wow. the first thing out of one’s mouth (or to cross one’s mind if one is in a place where they should not be exclaiming whatever crosses one’s mind) should definitely NOT be “holy frack that is vile!” whoa, this may just be one of the worst things i have ever ingested. perhaps it is just the first sip though and all of the badness floated to the surface. so let me try it again. oh no! grossness again. i just cannot imagine people like this. or that it passed any sort of review process before being made. what was the meeting like when the flavor engineer or whatever came to them with some options: “ok Jim, this one taste like swamp sludge, this one tastes like dirty shoe leather, but THIS one right here tastes like rancid baby drool and acne puss, let’s go with the 1st one!”
i also am not even sure what the sweetener is in here. i THINK it is “sodium gluconate” since it almost has the word “glucose” in it which we all know is code for sugar. yet the truth place has little info on it. this place has more info on it but i am more scared now as it is an excellent “chelating agent” which sounds really scary to me.
so i am not going to drink any more of this. i suggest you don’t either. in time i will forget it exists i think.
Ingredients:carbonated water, sodium gluconate, caramel color, natural & artificial flavors, sodium benzoate, citric acid

Thanks for the warning, Sprecher's is still number one in my book, but some of the old standbys like Dad's and Barqs scan be quite tasty compared to some of the over ambitious syrupy stuff. Especially when they charge $2.50 a bottle for them at restaurants and pizza places.
