I happened upon an extremely good sale on 2-liter bottles of soda yesterday, and stocked up for entertaining this holiday season. Like a big dummy, I forgot they were in my trunk over night, and when I went and retrieved them this morning, they were partially frozen. [more inside]

In the curious 1975 comedy Linda Lovelace For President
, there's a scene in which, faced with the bankruptcy of her campaign, Lovelace starts inexplicably chanting the phrase "Soda water bottle, have a banana." This is picked up on by members of her marching band, and then becomes a series of calls and responses. The scene, completely safe for work, can be seen here
. What on earth is this a reference to?

I really enjoy Coke. (Yes, the soda.) I need a sugar-free or lower-sugar alternative beverage to drink at work. It's for dental reasons, not diet. Any ideas? [more inside]

I picked up a to-go order of food, which included a bottled soda. My hands were full for the walk home, so I put the soda in my shoulder bag so I could carry everything else. When I got home, the soda bottle was empty, and my bag—containing my laptop and iPad—were full of sticky soda. Turns out the server had loosened the bottle cap, but didn't tell me. [more inside]

What are the health risks if a person drinks diet sodas pretty much to the exclusion of water or any other type of beverage? Average amount consumed is 3.75 liters a day, about a liter is caffeine free, brand name is any and all. [more inside]

When I lived in LA I could drive to BevMo or to Galco's
and fill up on Cheerwine, Moxie, and various birch beers and sasparillas and other local sodas. When I go see my parents in Northern California I can do the same at the local Nugget Market.
Now that I'm living in NYC and am carless, where can I go to satisfy my specialty soda fix?

Two soda fountains. Two paper cups full of ice. The first fountain consistently dispenses soda into its cup with very little foam. You could fill it all the way up to the top without having to stop once to let the foam subside.
The second consistently produces a very foamy drink, so that you have to stop, let the foam subside, fill again, stop, start, etc. until your cup is full.
What's the difference? Why the foamy soda? [more inside]

Sometimes when I drink really sugary drinks quickly, especially soda or juice, I get really uncomfortable chest tightness for a few minutes. (If I sip them it's usually fine.) Why does this happen?

Does caffeine really taste like anything? And if not, why does caffeine free soda (specifically Caffeine Free Diet Coke on my desk) taste so much worse than the caffeinated version?

Stoney Tangawizi is sweet sodafied deliciousness. You owe it yourself to try some. If you tell me where I can buy it in New York City, I'll get you a bottle.

I just learned that I have 2 cavities and I am guessing it's because I switched to drinking a lot of diet soda since my last dentist visit.
Are there any diet sodas that are not acidic? (both caffeinated and uncaffeinated).
If all diet sodas are acidic then is it possible to make kool-aid with a fake sugar and then carbonate it using a carbonator? How would that taste? Would that be ok for my teeth?

Trying to remember a carbonated ginseng beverage sold between 1988 and 1994 at Whole Foods in Austin (and eventually sold at the incredibly fancy flagship HEB). I seem to recall that it came in a purple can and tasted vaguely like dirt. I haven't seen it since and it's driving me crazy that I can't remember what it was called. And no, it was not Ginseng Up.
