People have lots of things they love, and soft drink is no different. But it's more common that people have one or two flavours that they physically cannot stand, and so for this week's Big Question I'm keen to know: what soft drink do you hate the most?
For me, Dr. Pepper and sarsaparilla were two soft drinks that I simply couldn't stomach. I've tried multiple times. My mum is a fan of the latter in particular, and I think slightly less of her every time she drinks that. But to be fair, she also enjoys licorice, which has always made me question how we're actually related.
(If you don't get it, the above is slightly a joke. We love each other dearly. But fuck licorice.)
A quick poll of the office revealed other soft drink flavours that, for various reasons, are on people's blacklist:
- Soft drinks with sugar
- Lift - it's like Solo, but too sweet and therefore objectively worse
- Passiona - apparently this is because the can was coloured purple, which made Chris think it was grape-flavoured, which he hates
- Diet Coke - "It's an abomination", according to Mark
- Root beer - Imagine ginger beer, designed by an arsehole
So, that's enough of me ranting on about soft drinks.
What soft drinks do you hate?
