pixiecrinkle: (Juice Box!)

So I'm having a friendly disagreement with someone about a soft drink. 7-up has recently claimed they are now all-natural. One of us thinks that this is because 7-up is now free of color. One of us thinks it always was. Help us figure out who is right!

You need a "Ugh! Bleah! Neither!" option for your last one.

Oh crap. I should know that too, because I personally can't stand either one.

My mother always gave me either ginger ale or else flat 7 Up or Sprite when I was sick as a kid, so now the smell of any of them makes me want to hurl.

7Up and Sprite = clear
Ginger Ale = beige
Mountain Dew = green/yellow

They don't sell the "all natural" one in Canada yet. :(

I'll believe the claims when I can see the ingedients myself! :)

They removed one of the preservatives and replaced it with something else. It's still got high fructose corn syrup though. Blech.

I figured. :(

Luckily, that's not in the stuff up here. It's not in any of our pop.

I marked that Sprite and 7-Up weren't the same color. I suppose they are, to an extent, but I've always thought that 7-Up was considerably 'more clear' than Sprite. I can't explain it, really. Probably just me being weird. :)

Actually, I'm in agreement with you. My friend says it's slightly cloudy yellow. I'm perplexed.

Nah, that sounds more like Mello Yello.

I think it's because 7-Up had that ultra-clearness, whereas Sprite was a huge amount of bubbles. I don't think it was a different color, just more.. bubbly?

don't you love how 7-up is advertising fewer ingredients and Dr Pepper is advertising 23 ingredients or something?

Really? That's really odd. Especially because they're owned by the same company. Go figure.

Doesn't seem odd to me. Those companies will do anything to sell an extra can of soda. Probably the result of market research conducted on 100 Columbus "Middle America" residents, half wanting more ingredients and half less :)
