No club soda. Perrier. Even San Pellegrino doesn't do it for me.

:cry:

1. Have you tried St Croix?
I buy it by the case at Costco.

:9 especially the lime flavor. :9

:D

I'm with you though, I don't like regular soft drinks anymore, I stick to fizzy water.

7. No. I haven't. I'll have to check it out.
My favorite drink, other than iced tea, was Talking Rain Ice, especially the Orange Mango flavor. I haven't seen it in Costco or Target for almost a year. :cry:

Delicious stuff, five calories and most importantly, not very sweet.

I don't care for soda at all. Once in a blue moon, maybe a root beer, but otherwise, I stick to tea.

3. What if you found out...
Perrier isn't really Perrier but just club soda. Would that cause you some form of grief? Or is that just the magic of drinking Perrier?

9. I actually prefer the San Pellegrino.
It's probably my Italian roots that influence my taste buds, but I just plain like it better.

10. I am addicted to fizzy water
due to my Italian upbringing but Perrier gets expensive (I hate San Pellegrino - not fizzy enough for me) after a while. I bought this carbonator unit (www.sodaclub.com ). It was around $80 and the cartridges run about $15 when you trade in the used ones. It makes it very easy for me to fill up one of the bottles with cool tap water and fizzy it up the way I like it. It's also much much cheaper. There are also flavors that you can add, including syrups for cola and such.

12. I like beer.
It makes me a jolly good fellow.
I like beer.
It helps me unwind, and sometimes
It makes me feel mellow ...

Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much
Vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain is intended to explain
That as a matter of fact, I like beer.

13. I like Perrier a lot, too. Have you tried Gerolsteiner?
The German fizzy water? Good stuff. Club soda sucks, it's Perrier or Gerolsteiner.

14. Did you know that "Perrier" spelled backwards is "naive"?
