I'm drinking Stella Artois at the moment, although I must say I've drunk some Brahma (Brazilian) beer lately and found it very good.

In Europe and UK Stella is the top Lager but for winter brews local brewers make "Barley Wine" aka 11+% proof bitter and my favourite is Old Tom from Robinson's in Stockport, Gtr Manchester.

It's very black & very strong and they only sell it in half pints.

When I get home from work, in about 15 minutes, I will turn on the wife's Espresso maker and steam myself some milk for some hot choclate. To that hot choclate I will add Disaronno, whip cream, and top it off with a maraschino cherry.

If by "godly" you mean, "not fit to clean horsecrap off my car tires" then I agree 100%. Dr. Pepper is one of the worst tasting substances ever made.

ATM, I'm drinking some of the lamest, weakest coffee known to man.

heh, did you somehow miss what frobozz said in the DYMT thread?

Q: Does Dr Pepper have Antifreeze in it?
A: NO!
(ok, so maybe everything in Dr Pepper isn't "good for you")
"Polyethylene glycol is polymerized ethylene glycol. Dr Pepper reportedly uses it as an antifoaming agent."

"Ethylene glycol (commonly called antifreeze): HO-CH2-CH2-OH, is a small, toxic compound which dissolves readily in water and lowers its freezing point. Polyethylene glycol HO-CH2CH2-O-CH2CH2-O-CH2CH2-O-.. is a very large, inert, gelatinous compound which can be used to thicken foods. It's completely non-toxic, probably indigestible"

Well Mt. Dew has "Brominated Vegetable Oil" in it. Must be a mild laxitive or something.

That Perugia might be OK, but I prefer stuff a tad fresher. I also find single-origin coffees more interesting.

The best coffee I've ever tasted so far was some rwandan beans I got a pound of last summer. An absolutely delicious cup.

Rwandan sounds very interesting. I really should branch out from my favorite once in a while. It's just that I only drink coffee in the morning, and I'm just kinda "hooked" on the Perugia.... :P Gotta have that stuff!

I drink only H2O the rest of the day, as I am RIGHT NOW. :)

ah neat, not too expensive either.... what is the worlds most sought
after coffee? either for its rarity, or how expensive it is... for example,
truffles are the most sought after mushroom, and they're quite pricy,
along with the most expensive caviar in the world, the beluga. but
according to this site:

World's most expensive Caviar is called ALMAS (Russian for Diamond).
This Beluga caviar is WHITE in appearance. The caviar comes from the
fish which is over 100 years old. As a general rule, the lighter the color of
Beluga Caviar the older is the fish and the more elegant and exquisite is
the flavor. Almas is extremely rare and extremely expensive. Caviar
House ALMAS Iranian Caviar (pictured) is packed in 24K gold tin and is
sold for an amazing price of 14,705.00 British Pounds (about $23,308.00)
per 1 kg. (35 oz.) Who said that eating a car was impossible? :)


anyways... that site had a very interesting way of rating coffee with their
flavor quality analysis web, which looks like:

but mattsteg, which is better in your opinion, the city or the full city type?

From a Pepsi site: Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)
Brominated vegetable oil has been used by the soft drink industry since 1931. It is a widely used food additive that has been extensively tested and approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

Brominated vegetable oil is derived from soybean oil that has been modified in order to keep the flavoring oils well-blended.


From Wikipedia: Mountain Dew's brominated vegetable oil is another source of contention. More than 100 countries ban brominated vegetable oil for its adverse health effects. However, the exact quantity of bromine put into fat cells from BVO is questioned.


The Wiki pageis pretty intersting, IMHO.

Wow...check this out:

Brominated Vegetable oil is found in many citrus sodas (but not all of them).

The toxicity reports from the FDA proved that all rats tested with injections of BVO died from it.

While BVO isn't the same as Bromine, we have yet to prove that it is safe enough to remove it from the Top 2000 Toxic Additives list.

BVO cannot be purged from your body once absorbed into the fat cells (even the leanest of people are composed of 10-25% body fat).

It is not the source of the 'Red' in Code Red - that's just food coloring.

I apologize to all those who were mislead by whomever posted this on farq.com. All Mountain Dew lines use BVO because they are citrus based.

Soda is, of course, unhealthy for us anyway, and this is more of a simple rant regarding my once all-time favorite unhealthy drink.

HOLY BATMAN MOSES CRAP ROBIN!!!!

should i consider quitting mt dew? how is that possible? kids 15-23 years
old these days drink that stuff like theres no tomorrow... now that i'm 34
and drinking this stuff since i was old enuff to drink pop... nothing but
pure negativeness comes from drinking mt dew...

1. you get hopelessly hooked and addicted to caffeine

2. mt dew has one of the highest contents of not only caffeine, but sugar in the normal pop category

3. mt is citrus based, and has one of the highest acidity levels out of all
the pops (besides orange-flavored pops) which cause major damage
to your teeth and causes uber cavities and decay!

4. is there any proof (snopes?) of decreased fertility for men over a long period
of drinking mt dew? i mean does your poor sperm shrivel up and die?
