In a glass, it has the same color (maybe a little bit less translucent), the same bubbles and the same odor, only the taste is different : less sweetened than a classic coca-cola, it has the taste of a good coffee too without the unpleasant back-taste that the coffee can let in your mouth sometimes.
I like, but IMO the price is too expensive for a soda.

Expensive eh?

Are the ingredients at least higher quality? Is it made with sugar instead of High Fructose Corn Syrup? Cos i can't stand that stuff. Its overly sweet, burns, and sticks to your teeth. Plus it's metabolized like fat (instead of carbohydrates).

I think that's why i like foreign sodas the best, because they are still made with sugar.

They had some at work today... some people were saying it tastes horrible. Didn't try it out at all. Didn't want to tempt myself to drinking soda of any kind, especially since I lost 20 lbs. after quitting for 2 months.

I Tried it and I don't like it.
(des goûts et des couleurs comme on dit en France)

It's not the usual coke effect.
With cherry coke, you've got a coke with a cherry aftertaste.
Same with vanilla or lemon.

But with this you've got a coffee with bubbles and a coke aftertaste...

I dunno, coke with coffee aftertaste? I think they got it right.

Yes. It's like Mountain Dew only a little "stronger". It's mildly effective as an energy drink. If you like Mountain Dew, you'll like the taste.

But the calorie content is way too high. It has as many calories as a small meal for me. I'm committed to only drinking low-calorie energy drinks, unless I'm going to use the energy in an explosive manner, not just to stay awake while writing scripts.

"Doubt" , posted Sat 8 Apr 08:37post reply

A little bit off-topic, but could a native speaker of English tell me if there is any difference between asking:

*How is something?

*What is something like?

An English teacher I had said that the former question was related to the health/mood of a person and that it was unusual to use it for things and the latter is asking a thing's description.

Is this right or wrong?

I'm no English teacher, but it seems to me that the second question requires a -description- whereas the first one could be a description or simply an evaluation (like, is it good or bad). But you could definitely ask how a game is (do you like it? is it fun?) or ask what it's like (as in, what's it similar to, meaning a description that might incidentally include whether you think it's good or bad). Make any sense?

Both are context sensitive.
The former can certainly be used to ask for a description of something.. but it usually implies some sort of opinion in the perspective.
"How goes the war?"
- "It goes well."
"How's the game?"
- "Awful; they're losing 3-0!"
- "I love it, it's so much fun!"
"How's it going?"
- "It sucks."
"How's the food?"
- "Awesome, I love it."
- "Awful, it's overcooked!"

The second one is asking for a description, but that doesn't mean that it won't involve someone's opinion.
"What's the game like?"
- "The game's more or less like KOF."
- "It's like warmed-over sewage."
"What's the food like?"
- "It's similar to Brazillian BBQ, which means it's a festival of MEAT."

There are some slangy uses which aren't really grammatically correct/proper, but you'll hear all the time, e.g.
"What's it like to have hemorrhoids?"
- "It sucks." <-- not correct, but common enough
- "It's like having the raw feeling you have when someone tears duct tape off your skin accompany you all day long."

VAULT!!! OHhh yeah, my friend had that... the only reason it still "tastes like a soda" is basically it's an energy drink, with extra sugar to cover the bad taste...


And poster above me... good examples of usage

(sidenote: hemorrhoid victims should always carry extra preparation H)
(extra sidenote: notice how the H is red, like blood... from the hemorrhoids)

MDX is pretty old news, and it's okay. I drank a few of them but moved on to far more interesting energy drinks that continue to flood the market.

Still no Coke Blak here... but Berries & Cream Dr Pepper has landed and it is fantastic, both the diet and regular varities.

As for Vault, no, it really isn't much of an energy drink. It has more caffeine than Dew, but not a lot. The "kicks like an energy drink" marketing stuff might backfire when people realize that, well, it doesn't. It's a good tasting soda, though. Similar to Surge. I prefer it to Dew.

Now, I love coffee and I can stand Coke from time to time, but this crap is an abomination upon soft drinks. These two things should never go together, period. But, it's going to find its niche audience anyways.

I saw a four pack of Blak at the store in the coffee aisle. Is it a coffee or is it a cola? Am I supposed to drink it warm, cold or at room temperature? Since I don't understand it the product confuses and frightens me. A committee should be formed to look into this so-called CocaCola Blak.

It was originally little more than pepsi without the caramel colouring. Wasn't bad, wasn't special. Just boring. THEN they added citrus flavour near the end of its life and it got rather nasty.

Wasn't it called "Crystal Pepsi"?

Actually, lacking the caramel in the coloring makes a fairly significant difference because it doesn't feel as sticky on your teeth. Also, it comes out better when you freeze it.. it's like drinking sugar water, rather than sugar water + sticky mess.

Pepsi Blue was fucking insane. It was too much sugar! It was like eating a really sweet dessert! I mean...if you looked at it that way, it tasted OK...but that's too much for a drink!

Eating that with junk food is like putting chocolate on a McDonald's hamburger.

Agreed. Surge was nasty. But does anybody remember OK Soda? I liked it. One of the first times I ever got drunk was off that stuff and whiskey. I got sick and don't care for whiskey anymore but if OK Soda came back I'd try it again. I also liked calling the 1-800 number and hearing the weird, random shit they would do. Like bird calls, the OK Soda manifesto, jokes, reading customer comments, etc.
