gsdlover, i use to love briars birch beer, started drinking it when i was a kid. in my navy days, if the bar had it on tap, i would drink that instead of a beer. unusual for a sailor. now it is hard to find so that is the only soft drink i drink, when i find it, about once or twice a year.
I hate Mountain Dew from plastic bottles, except 2 Liters are fine, lol. My preference with Dew or Coke is fountain, but it has to be a good mix. McDonald's makes the best Coke and Celebration Cinema (local theater chain) makes the *best* Dew. I swear we will go see movies just to get their Dew.
