Kennedy on The Five said last night that she can't live without diet Coke or something.  I'm pretty sure that in 2018 or so republicans were boycotting Coca-Cola products.  I'm really sure that they're supposed to be doing it now.

I can't imagine drinking 12 cans a day of anything as an adult, thats quite a habit.  Definitely drank a metric ton of off-brand mountain dew knockoffs when i was a kid though, always had a case in the bedroom.

Awful stuff. Drinking it warm made it even worse.  It would foam in your mouth and never quench thirst.  It was like mixing baking soda and vinegar.

Yeah, it does.  I drank Tab.  Any of the  newer diet drinks are much better.

Figured so.  I keep Canada Dry around for drinking on its own and mixing drinks.  I know those plastic bottles are dated.  I never worry if they go not too far past, though.

The newer ones where they ditch the sweetener and just add flavor essences to the water can be downright good.

I don't buy water.  That's a whole nother story.  Diet soda is a bad habit, buying water in little bottles is absolutely out.

I don't drink soda, milk, juice (nutritionally about the same as drinking soda), coffee or tea except as a drug, and my alcohol consumption is around two ciders or beers a month. Unsweetened fizzy water is about my only beverage indulgence

Isn't there a better substitute? There's gotta bean alt-tab.

When his friends ask for a beverage, he asks himself 'are they Tab worthy?'

Dwindling and flat.

It does. My co-worker's ex-wife's new husband somehow acquired several pallets of Coke products, but let them sit out in the weather. He decided to get rid of them and put them at the end of the driveway with a "free" sign on them. They lasted about an hour. The next day, about 2/3 of it had been put back.

In the dorm, guys would line their room walls with beer cans (generally Bud or Genny Cream, there wasn't much else).  One woman on our floor (OOO coed dorms!) did the same with Tab cans.

I think Tab's "distinct" taste came from its use of saccharin. I never cared much for it.

Speaking of which... my soda budget has dramatically gone up since Wegmans stopped selling 'Mt. W', so I haven't been able to get 2L for $0.75 for quite some time now.

Anyone have recommendations for other good generic Mountain Dew?

Yes.  Any soda in a plastic bottle goes flat over time, but as there's acceptable range of bubbles for most people, you can use it to stretch fresh soda.

Cans risk having the acid eat through the can and leaking if the inside isn't properly coated, which makes a horrible mess

Diet sodas can have the sweetener decay with time and become another chemical that tastes disgusting.  (And some people are sensitive to it, so all diet sodas taste disgusting anyway, but they become even more disgusting)

Thanks for the tip.

There's a Harris Teeter that's not horribly far from my place, so I'll have to check there, as I'm in an otherwise Kroger-free area.  (I think King Soopers and Fred Meyers are also Kroger stores)

And I found a site that did some reviews of various Dew variants, and they agreed with the Kroger brand (but didn't have the Wegmans brand): https://aarondemott.blogspot.com/2013/05/blind-taste-test-mountain-dew-vs.html?m=1

God...Tab was just awful. Literally one of the worst things I ever drank and that covers a lot of ground (Evan Williams is still worse, though).

Tab? Yeah, that stuff was awful.
