Hear that? That’s the satisfying sound you get when you pop open a fizzy drink of goodness that’s about to be chugged down. Over the years, there has been a plethora of flavoured, syrupy, sugary, carbonated/uncarbonated soft drinks that has hit the shelves – some great and some that make you question your life.  BUT as always there can be only five that reign supreme! Join Tuong La and Unhealthy Human Beings Angus MacDonald, Matt Barrow, and Leslie Cserepy as they bring drink samples to the table and make themselves nauseous as they rank Top 5 Soft Drinks!

Ground Rules

  • Must specify the brand AND the flavour
  • This is a samples episode. If you didn’t bring the sample then making your case will be exponentially harder

  • Definition for “soft drink” we are going for is as follows (credit to the Internet):  “Soft drink, any of a class of nonalcoholic beverages, usually but not necessarily carbonated, normally containing a natural or artificial sweetening agent, edible acids, natural or artificial flavours, and sometimes juice. Natural flavours are derived from fruits, nuts, berries, roots, herbs, and other plant sources. Coffee, tea, milk, cocoa, and undiluted fruit and vegetable juices are not considered soft drinks.”
  • If the drink is more “juice” than what the group is considered more of a “soft drink” than it does not count and that person has to renominate
