The best Dr. Pepper on the planet. Started selling it at HEB, but it's expensive as hell.

That is not a problem as long as the drink is bottled. It's only a problem if the water is not from a bottled source and not filtered for that matter. On a related note, just by traveling far distances within the same country one would experence health related problems when they drink water straight from the source for the 1st ever time. I know when I went to California for the 1st ever time in my life traveling from NY, I had the same problem inside my digestive tract as I did when I made the mistake of ordering a mixed drink in Mexico.

That is actually called Kosher Coke. Mexican Coke is more onto itself because it's bottled stright from Mexico and comes in a glass bottle only.

They sell it here in utah and they did in Arizona too. Yes, it's a lot better.

Nothing beats Mountain Dew Code Red though.

Used to love it.

Try not to drink soda anymore if I can help it.

Pick up the occasional 2L bottle of Pepsi Next though.

Christmas coke is always better too. Or at least that's the placebo effect my parents have impressed upon me.

Soda in any country outside of the US (not sure about Canada) always uses real sugar rather than HFCS and it always tastes better. Although every now and then they have coke/pepsi using real sugar in the US.

I don't care what kind of sugar they use, but please, for the love of ****ing God, bring back Cherry and Vanilla Coke to Canada.

HFCS really only exists because the US government heavily subsidises maize production and charges high tariffs on imported sugar, making HFCS significantly cheaper.

In the rest of the world sugar is much cheaper, hence limiting the appeal of HFCS.

There is regular Mountain Dew and Code Red in the lobby of the housing I'm staying in at college next year. I'm going to drink way too much. You can bring a pitcher down and fill it up.

Uh, well, they still sell it. I can get it whenever. The stuff is awesome.

I also have been drinking the Dark Berry and Game Fuel I saved. Mountain Dew sells the best soda on the planet.

Reasons it tastes better.

1. Made with real sugar
2. Comes in a glass bottle not plastic

It's all over the place where I live, as there's a number of Mexican markets in town. It's good, but probably one of those things that gets overrated just because it's different ... kind of a "cool kids" thing. I bet in a blind tasting most people couldn't tell which was which.

Funny thing is, I know some vineyard workers from Mexico, and they all prefer the American stuff.

It's pretty easy to find here in the Sacramento area also.

There's a store a block away from my house where I get it.

My family isn't really too big on soda, but my grandma, who does drink soda, drinks Diet Coke.

Diet isn't much better.

You like the new Mountain Dew flavours? Not sure if it's just in Canada or if it's in North America as well. If it's just in Canada, they have a promotion. They came out with 4 new flavours and customers vote for the best one. One with the most vote will be here for good and the other 3 would bo longer exist.

Flavours were...

Code Red(assuming it's the same as what Canada had a couple of years ago and what the US has)
Blue(Not sure what flavour it is as I haven't had it yet)
Purple(grape and I liked it)
White(tasted like a regular Mountain Dew but a little lighter. Kind of like a Diet Mountain Dew. Might be a lemon flavour???)
