Holy crap.   8)

Im sure a diet soda now and then isn't a problem.

Lucky you! I get slightly filtered Schuylkill Punch in my part of South Philly.

I drink water. Lots of water. My urine is usually clear I drink so much. I've never been a coffee drinker. When I splurge it's a vanilla Coke.

Someone up there said: "Sorry to have strayed off topic here but looking at your link, it appears that most southerners use the term "Coke" as a generic term for soda/pop??? THAT is just plain weird. So they say, "I'm going to the store to get some coke" when they really were picking up root beer? Does not compute. "

It's because Coca-Cola is based out of Atlanta and had a large influence in that area. If you wanted a carbonated sugary beverage with no alcohol (phew that's a mouthful), it would be Coke regardless, so Southerners just called it "coke" the way you might get a (small letters on purpose) kleenex, a q-tip, xerox or bandaid.

By the time there was an alternative, it was too late.

But I'm from Kentucky, we drink Ale-8-One. ;)

My Aunt and Uncle were thrifty shoppers and used to buy Shasta soda for us when we came to visit . The creme and grape were my favorite followed by orange , never liked the plain Shasta cola .
