Poisoned soda

Have you ever stopped drinking soda for a few months, and then on a whim bought a coke and it tasted something akin to gasoline? I mean seriously I took my 4yo out to PF Changs and I got a wild hair and ordered a coke, and it tasted like ass. So then I asked for a Dr Pepper and it tasted about the same, so did I just lose my taste for it or has it always tasted like this and I just never realized it?

Could be the lines they used in the machines as well as losng a taste for it. Some places don't clean their lines properly or routinely.

I figured, it is just so strong and tastes horrible! Almost toxic!

Yup. One of the reasons I never gave any to Mouse.

Now if she has it, it will taste like Ass.

That's what happened to me, I felt like I was drinking poison.

I'm not sure why it happened but it freaked me out.

That could be it, but the PF Changs here is very nice so I am more inclined to believe I have just lost my taste. One thing is for sure I am completely done with soda!

LOL that is exactly the thought I had, I seriously almost panicked I thought they were poisoning me hahaha. I am glad it happened though, it just reaffirms why I stopped drinking it altogether. I have never given it to my kids, but I would indulge a few times a week....I am so glad I stopped!

*Nods*
Good for you! I was of soda for over a year then when I had my second child, I got hooked again after one serving. I'd like to quit them altogether again but don't have the desire strongly enough yet.
