National Drink A Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day +

donmdonm Posts: 10,241 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

So you take a break and reach for a soft drink/coke/pop. What do you choose? Coke/Pepsi? Other? I heard it said that Pepsi drinkers will on occasion try a Coke, but Coke drinkers will never touch a Pepsi. Is that true for you.

While drinking your carbonated beverage with caffeine today, sit down and enjoy National Play Monopoly Day. Does anyone still play board games or have we gone over to the dark side with video games?

    Is Coke day a real thing ?
    If families have stopped playing board games, western civilization might be in a death spiral.

    hmm. I don't drink coffee (never have had any other than 2 "irish" coffees one night. But it sounds kind of interesting for sure.

    It doesn't sound terribly different from some of the ultra high caffeine carbonated energy drinks on the market. Except taste wise maybe.

    I don't drink sugared drinks now that I'm a grown up, but if you drink Pepsi over Coke you're not a southerner. Full stop.

    As for board games, my extended family, three generations worth, play hours of board games and card games when we get together, which will happen this Wed/Thu/Fri for Thanksgiving.

    I'll put in a good word for Cheerwine. If you're not familiar, it's basically a cherry soda, but far better than anything the big boys produce. If I'm going to drink a sugared/carbonated drink, that is far and away the best I've ever had. Hard to find in parts of Georgia. Usually try to enjoy one when I'm in North Carolina.

    Yeah, my ex-wife and her family weren't into board games either. Different strokes.

    Quit drinking carbonated soft drinks well over 10 years ago. Used to do 10 Diet Cokes a day and finally said this sh!t can't be good for me. Dropped it like a bowling ball on a hardwood floor. The only carbonated drink that I do now is beer..........

    Ummm, Cheerwine! I also remember as a kid going to my Grandp's barber shop in Hickory, NC where I came into the world, he always had RC Cola and Moonpies. Also related to Cheerwine is Sundrop, a lemon-li me soda that mixed well with moonshine or ****. The girls really liked it, so we did too. 😉

    My dad grew up on RC and moonpies, and I am familiar with Sundrop as well!
