    Don't forget that Red Bull Cola stuff, which was :coma:, yet soon disappeared
    Has that really gone? I bought it in Asda no more than a month ago but I haven't looked for it recently. I never liked it that much to be honest. It had too much of a nasty aftertaste.

    I bought it a few times from supermarkets, but I haven't seen it in any of them for months, but maybe the ones around here are just resistant to such brilliant advances

    TBH I keep on getting this regularly in London. Tescos sell it, and most of the other supermarkets as well. If we're talking about the same thing - Coca-Cola marketed by RedBull, right? :confused:

    Questions like these apparently warrant a Wikipedia page. However, the list doesn't even list it being ever available in Great Britain.

    Have the catchiest jingle instead. The Grape flavor is singing.

    y'all not have Mirinda up in here - at least not in the general retail. Too bad, only some cornershops stock it, those that have bizarre imports (Fanta from Saudi Arabia, Dr. Pepper from The Netherlands, etc.). Inb4 someone asks it - it's PepsiCo's answer to Fanta. Quite popular in Central Europe, esp. Czech Republic/Slovakia, used to be pretty big in Poland as well.

    But then, I've heard that Pepsi generally are pretty low on sales in the UK and have already been "Coca-Cola's poor cousin" for a fairly long time. Is that true? That might actually explain the lack of Mirinda here and some other drinks... :confused:

    I think we're talking abut the same thing; but, after buying it for a couple of months, I haven't seen it anywhere (apart from Italy last week, but that doesn't count) in aaaaaaaaaages. Maybe us gimps in the provinces just get a raw deal when it comes to innovative new beverages :sad:

    Mirinda is European??

    I thought it was Arab! :o:

    And yeah, Pepsi is always Coke's crappy cousin. Everyone's second choice.

    That's how it looks like:



    Wiki says it's available in the UK and doesn't mention it being ordered off the shelves, even though it supposedly containst extracts of coca leaves.

    Try large Tescos or some slightly more expensive delis, they should stock 'em there. :yep:

    Oh yuck!! Do the real thing and plonk a scoop of vanilla ice cream into a glass of coke!! Mmmmm.

    Also (but this was back when I was too young to put on weight) I used to squirt the top of the coke with whipped cream and stir, and it's deeeeeeelicious

    Edit: Pulped Maltesers mixed with whipped cream is also delicious. There's not really any combination of fizzy, chocolate, and cream that won't taste nice

    Well, yeah - it's originated in Spain (Fanta is originally German), but I remember going to Czech Republic when I was a kid and seeing, like, 12 various kinds of Mirinda (I think they even had Mirinda-Tonic :eek3:), whereas us in Poland, we only had like 1! :eek:

    Still, it's pretty weird - I've just read that it has been only introduced in the USA some time 2003 - and I perfectly remember getting those in the mid-1990s in Poland, back in the primary school! Seems that USA is not always one step ahead in front of everyone with the sodas :awesome:

    Ha, probably because of all those Arab imports in London :p:
    TBH I don't think I've ever seen a non-Arab Mirinda here, they all seem to be imported from Middle East, for some strange reason. :confused:

    I've been drinking a lot of Pepsi in the past 3 months or so. Budgens around where I live have regular offers of 2L Pepsi/7Up for £1, whereas a 2L Coke or Sprite costs £1.80. The choice is obvious. :yep:

    No, I've never bought it here, but whenever I go to Israel it's everywhere, so I just assumed it came from the Mid East. I never really thought about it tbh.

    Hopefully, yeah. Still sorting out my loan, though, but the EU Team that I'm dealing with are just 3 to 4 weeks behind (as opposed to 10 weeks approx. of SE England), so I still have a chance to get my loan on time.

    Waiting for the Accommodation Office to give me a place on campus, supposedly Mile End is completely booked! :eek: Hoping that some people will drop out next week, come the results day and cancellation of some offers :yep:

    Other than that, I'm sorted out, as I have an unconditional offer and have my results already, yay! :woo:
