This has been fun to read - I had no idea there were so many regional favorites. I generally don't drink carbonated sodas, but I do like Mexican coke, made with cane sugar. Lots of good juice drinks available here, like mango and guava, but my favorite "refresco" is Delaware Punch. I used to drink it when I was a kid, and was delighted to see it here. No carbonation and mostly grape juice.

I love Squirt Diet Grapefruit Soda, Diet Dr. Pepper, Cherry-Vanilla Dr. Pepper and I like just about any orange soda.

There are probably others, but those are my favorite.

I also like Mint Gingerale, which I can only find in the Pittsburgh area.

7. can't remember the name, but it has grapefruit oils in it

After diabetic diagnosis;
1. Wal Mart's - Clearly American - any flavor
2. Diet Cream Soda
3. Diet Root Bear
4. I make a bunch of my own soda flavors by mixing together sparkling water, Splenda, and various flavor extracts, especially vanilla as I do love my cream soda and it's very hard to find without sugar or corn syrup.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

was your #7 Squirt? that has grapefruit in it.

nothing beats a good cherry limeaid. alas, the effects of having
two kids have made it necessary to cut out sodas if I want to keep
able to button my jeans...
