After yesterday's sandwich-related thread, you're certainly looking for a tasty beverage to wash down your lunch. Unfortunately, you'll be hard-pressed to locate something potable at The Beverage Network, among whose featured beverages are Java Cola, White Soda (that's carbonated milk), and Pickle Juice.

I couldn't find anything on my favorite beverage (warning flash), and I want to know if I can get it shipped to me. Anybody got any leads on obtaining Snapple Mint Iced Tea in the Portland (orygun) metro area? I've googled and googled and I keep coming up short....

The most popular white water soda (yogurt-based) in japan is Calpis. To me, it tastes like chalk. I have braved pudding drink, Coffee Cola (as awful as it sounds), Jive coffee (Japanese canned coffee, while it was new and interesting to me when I arrived in 94, is invariably awful), and the doctor proscribed Pocari Sweat (Japan's Gatorade) when I was down with food poisoning and dehydration from a convenience store sandwich.

I've had "Dhoog", which is Iranian yogurt soda. I thought it was awful. It tasted like salty sour cream. My co-worker, who grew up in Iran, loves it, though. She said it's definitely an acquired taste. Anyone know where I could find either White Soda or eMoo? I'd love to try them in cereal. :)

Well Moxie is still on top for me with it's curative Gentian Root. The other thing I have started drinking is fresh apple cider vinegar which is an amazing alternative to alcohol. Also see this thread.

Believe it or not eyeballkid, you can get this at Restoration Hardware.

Freaky, no??

Key lime Stewart's, no doubt about it. But nothing beats Vernor's, which I can not get out East (it's just about the only thing I miss about Detroit, aside from the Wings and Greektown). When I moved to Philly a few years ago my wife tried celery flavored soda that she found at some store (forgot the brand) but didn't like it much.

Ewww! Cel-Ray! Who the hell though celery soda would taste good? Cel-Ray is the only soda I can think of that I thought was grosser than Dhoog.

"Pocari Sweat" is good with Vodka.

If you're wondering why pickle juice is being marketed as a sports drink, here's why.

Carbonated milk? Um, YUCK. I don't even want to think about that.

I miss this, though. Drank it all the time in junior high and high school.

Go to a Vietnamese sandwich shop if you're feeling adventerous. Grass jelly soda and squash drinks.

I've got a can of saurkraut juice here if anyone wants it.

Razcal. Best damn soda on earth if you can find it.

no different from an egg cream or ice cream soda, really. (I don't like milk, but for those that do...)

Vernor's and Northern Neck ginger ale. The best two ginger ales on the planet.

lately i've been terribly partial to snapple peach iced tea, thai red bull and jones green apple soda.

however if i want a good kick in the teeth there's nothing wrong with goya ginger beer or skeleteens black lemonade, rat bastard root beer, brainwash or fukola cola.
