DIY soda recipesAug 06 2010

Here are some DIY soda recipes. I'd really like to try that ginger ale at some point.

The cost of soda and fruitMay 19 2010

In an article about the lobbying effort against a proposed soda tax in the District of Columbia, this nugget:

We're drinking more soda for several reasons. Above all, the inflation-adjusted price has fallen 34 percent since the late 1970s, largely because it can be manufactured more cheaply than in the past. Meanwhile, the average real cost of fruits and vegetables has risen more than 30 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

PS: Alternate titles for this post include:
"What's that got to do with the price of soda in DC?" (Too obscure?)
"This is why you're fat." (Too mean?)
"Ur doing it wrong." (What is this, the internet?)

Root beer at Ssam BarOct 06 2008

Remember the fun we had reading about this root beer tasting a few months back? The #1 root beer from that tasting, Sprecher (from Wisconsin), is now available on the root beer section of the menu at Ssam Bar. My Moscato d'Asti-addled brain forgot to get a bottle to go when I was there last, but I'll be back for you soon, Sprecher.

Root beer tastingJun 25 2008

NY Times wine guy Eric Asimov and his panel taste a bunch of root beers and conclude, among other things, that "too much root beer can make a man mean".

Our No. 1 root beer, from Sprecher in Wisconsin, a wonderfully balanced and complex brew, uses a combination of corn syrup and honey, while our No. 2, the restrained and flavorful IBC, uses only corn syrup. So even with the importance of the sweetener, something more is at play with root beers.

I've always wanted to have a root beer tasting.

Why do journalists drink so much Tab?Jan 30 2006

Why do journalists drink so much Tab? Futhermore, if, as conservatives would like us to believe, the political and cultural tempo of the country is being dictated by the pulse of the liberal media and they all guzzle fantastic amounts of Tab, why is Tab not more popular?

USASODA.com has tons of images of old soda cans. They're a little hard to find, but there's good stuff if you dig around a little bit.

Pepsi's market cap surpassed Coca-Cola's last weekDec 20 2005

Pepsi's market cap surpassed Coca-Cola's last week for the first time ever. The secret to their success? Diversifying into other snacks (Frito-Lay) and beverages (Tropicana and Gatorade).
