There’s a melon cream soda in Japan. The bottle has penguins on it. I only came by it twice, but both times I was very hot and wanted a yummy, cold, refreshing drink.

It’s been a few years and I still think about how good it was every now and then.

Thai iced tea actually loses a point for being too perfect. The experience always ends on a very sad note because I suck it down in like 90 seconds because it tastes too good.

I’m not Thai, but I’m amazed how this isn’t massively popular in the US like Starbucks. I think SB just has the trendiness. Because I feel like Thai Tea is by far better than most SB drinks I’ve had. I’d also say boba tea is usually preferable to SB personally, as well. But Thai Tea is the best hands down

I remember being about 12 going to town on like an entire bunch of bananas. Gobbling them down like a starved ape. I looked at my mom like 4 bananas deep and said,

"I love bananas! They're so sour!"

She ripped that fruit out of my hand so quick lolol

224

u/holy-reddit-batman Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 29 '22

LOL my sister used to eat bananas so strangely! She would break off a 1" chunk and use her fingers to place it in her mouth. We commented on it once, to which she replied, "Well how else do you keep it from burning your lips?!" Only then did we realize that she was bypassing her lips.

Yeah, less than a year later she went into anaphylactic shock after eating Special K with Red Berries right after a run. She developed the rare Runner's Allergy. Any fruit consumed within 30 minutes or so of a highly intense workout can cause an anaphylactic reaction.

It got bad enough with bananas specifically that she requested me to not feed my toddler bananas for a couple of days prior to a visit so she could kiss her sweet cheeks!

Edit to add:

Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) and food-dependent, exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) are rare but potentially life-threatening clinical syndromes in which association with exercise is crucial. The range of triggering physical activities is broad, including as mild an effort as a stroll. EIA is not fully repeatable (ie, the same exercise may not always result in anaphylaxis in a given patient). In FDEIA, the combined ingestion of sensitizing food and exercise is necessary to precipitate symptoms.Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis

When we were in Vinales in Cuba, we went to our local bar for some drinks. I ordered a Pina Colada and it came out virgin with a WHOLE 1L bottle of rum for me to free pour into the glass. You had to drink some of the virgin pina colada before pouring in the rum, to make room. It was the single greatest drink I’ve ever drank. They were so good that we still talk about them now.

because 95% of the bars you order one at won’t make it properly. they are going to use mix.

only way to know you’re getting a good pina colada is to pay $17+ for it at a fancy bar, or make it yourself at home. and it’s kind of a pain in the ass to make, so it’s not exactly the kind of drink you just whip up on a weekday evening.

but yea, a really good pina colada made with fresh pineapple is incredible.

Edit: Thank you all for chiming in. I appreciate the award and the suggestions be it brands or flavors to add.

Someone had asked for a recipe so here is mine (haven't made it in a long time but I believe these to be the correct measurements):

2 liters of water

2/3 cup sugar

2-3 lemons (squeezed)(may need more depending on the size)

mint leaves (optional and to preference)

Mix everything together until sugar is dissolved, add mint after mixed

Edit 2:

A little update.

Some water dispensers have these little cones instead of regular cups. I don't think there's an advantage as far as how many cups for in the same size storage space, but I think they are significantly smaller in volume, so the water in the dispenser lasts longer.

Also Google says it's more sanitary, because cups can't be left lying around, but I'm not sure what would stop people from leaving them upside down

u/Maxtrix07 Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 29 '22

Believe it or not, there's scientific evidence behind the reason. The cabin air is 15% drier than the air on the ground, which makes passengers more dehydrated and dry-mouthed. The pressure inside the cabin is lower than on the ground, which makes it harder to detect odorants.

Ginger Ale is a drink that manages to maintain its flavor longer when in drier air. So technically Ginger Ale, while flying in a plane, tastes 15% better than normal.

Edit: no, it doesn't literally taste exactly 15% better.

Because for some reason (a nerd can probably explain why) everything tastes blander on airplanes. That's why everything is seasoned as fuck but you don't realize it unless you try airplane food on the ground. Ginger ale in the sky mutes the flavor slightly and I guess it tastes better that way to many people.

The Guide also tells you on which planets the best Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters are mixed, how much you can expect to pay for one and what voluntary organizations exist to help you rehabilitate afterwards.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy sells rather better than the Encyclopedia Galactica.

And it has the words “DON’T PANIC” printed on it in large, friendly letters.

Horchata is legendary here in Mexico because no amount of alcohol will overcome the taste of horchata. We call these “aguas locas” and they will fuck you up bad.

Versatile as all hell too. Need something to quench your thirst? Raspberry lemonade is there. What shall I mix with all this Tito's to give it that ~zest~? Dump in some Raspberry lemonade, fam. Need a beverage that is appropriate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Knock knock. It's Raspberry lemonade.

Raspberry lemonade absolutely fucks, and it is there for me when no one else is.

Coca Cola used to have this Cherry limeade fountain soda. I haven’t seen it for years. Man. It was so damn good. Used to get it in high school. Twenty+ years ago.

Firehouse Subs has Cherry Limeade in their Coca Cola Freestyle machines (around here, at least). Best in the area, even counting Sonic.

My parents moved to Wisconsin when I was young and became paranoid that they would have alcohol in everything. So they told me, as a 5 year old, to say the word “virgin” before “Shirley Temple” when ordering. Then anytime I ordered a drink, even at McDonalds, I would ask for virgin xyz. Virgin water, virgin coke, etc. The looks I would get…

I had one of these at a work outing, and the bartender made it look really fancy. A few people saw how delicious it looked and ordered the same without even asking what it was.

When I was very young, my mom worked as a hotel manager, and once every couple of months, she'd have to stay overnight to be the Manager On Duty. My dad had to work early, so she'd take me with her.

I have so many good memories of eating McDonald's chicken nuggets while watching free pay-per-view in the hotel room, playing Nickelodeon games on her work computer, standing in the kitchen learning to cook from her best friend / head chef, and sitting at the bar drinking a fancy ass Shirley Temple.
