Yuck! My God, how can you drink that stuff?

That was my reaction to the new 7-Up with fruit juice- what awful offal.

I just saw an add for Berry Cream Dr. Pepper- are they stupid or crazy?

My closing remark will be that anyone that thinks Splenda or NutraSweet or Sweet-n-Low tastes like sugar should have themselves examined and committed- it's like putting a heap of bad chemistry in your mouth. Yuck!

I will sympathize with you diabetics, as you have little choice. If it ever comes to that for me I'm sticking with plain water.

YES we have, and not just the sweeteners we use, but how about the TV programs we watch!!!!!!!!!
By my last thread you can tell I am guilty too of having no taste buds.

Are BEERS are good though

Not only the pop, but what about the crazy flavors they have in the line for sports drinks? This last fall my daughter got the flu and the DR. encouraged me to get just plan 7UP and that was it. She commented that you can't be too sure what you are getting in the other stuff...too much sugar or even too many of the added electrolites. She even comented that some of the so called bottled waters now had added sodium to enhance the flavor..yikes!!!!

Have you seen the ad for DIET Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. Let's see--artificial sweetener aftertaste, artificial cherry aftertaste, artificial vanilla aftertaste, Dr. Pepper medicinal artificial aftertaste.

I believe they are creating a flavor that will cause you to rip out your tongue to get rid of the aftertaste. Then, when you can no longer taste anything, you won't care what you drink.

I thought it was funny that 7Up is advertising a new "all natural" version of its soda, and yet, there's still no lemon or lime juice in it. So what- are they natural chemicals? Ick.
