Looking for soda alternatives?!

Question: Looking for soda alternatives!?
I'm a soda junkie, mostly Cherry Coke, Cherry Pepsi and Mt!. Dew Code Red!. I'm trying to come up with an alternative to these drinks that:

- Doesn't taste like crap
- Hopefully offers some kind of caffeine
- Is lower in either straight up sugar or calories
- Does NOT contain aspartame, saccharine, or any other artificial sweeteners - sucralose is acceptable!.

I've already considered Coke Zero and Pepsi One, but considering I can't stand regular Coke or Pepsi, it didn't seem like much of an alternative!.

As with all my posts, please be respectful of the poster!. Thanks for your input!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Perhaps Jones Soda would be more your style!. I'm not sure on the exact numbers, but it uses cane sugar instead of nasty processed stuff, if that makes any difference to you!. You can taste the difference, honestly!. If you want a decent soda, go with Jones or an independent brand!. See if there are any stores that sell weird sodas in your area!. You may find something great!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

make ur own!. start with fruit juices fresh squeezed then add lemon juice to create tartness finish with a CO2 carbonizer and yummy you have drinks that contain no dyes and unnatural flavors and before the carbonizer can be frozen for later use!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I suppose the provide adequate alternatives, it would be helpful to know WHY you're looking for a substitute!.

I buy tazo chai tea - it has caffeine and if you add a little soy milk and a teaspoon of sugar it is delicious!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Try buying some cherry juice and mix in club soda for the fizz!. It's really pretty good!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
