    Fun fact about zero calories. Foods get to advertise as zero calories even if they have calories as long as the amount is small enough. Another factor, the lack of sugars in drinks is commonly swapped with far worse ingredients (like stevia). Only reason to go with a zero callery option is for the marketing.

    I can totally vouch for the Kroger thing. I work at Kroger, so K soda is the exact same as Harris's and Ralphs. Btw, their version of Mountain Dew is so so so much better, and probably better for you, than the actual name brand.

    I live in NYC and it seems that the closest Kroger subsidiary to me (other than a surprising number of Fred Meyer jewelry stores scattered throughout NY and NJ) are Harris Teeters in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Guess it’s gonna be a while until I get to try that soda but until then, I’m definitely gonna start scouting out generic grocery store brands to find some hidden gems

    I am very behind the idea of this competition, and fully stand behind fountain diet coke as being the obvious contender among the other DCs; however, I do not feel that it is a fair competition or fair comparison if you only compare fountain DC to other colas only in bottles and cans. Fountain pop (specifically fountain DC) will always be superior to any other vehicle of pop delivery and so fountain DC will be the clear winner. But hey, that's just a theory... A FOOD THEORY!

    Fountain is unreliable. The settings (fizz to syrup to water ratio) are set up by the store/service technician. Best coke I had was from a mom and pop restaurant. Turns out they were using alot more syrup than recommended.

    I was so happy Food Lion was even there, because I love a lot of their store brand stuff. Their oatmeal is great, cheese, milk, basically almost everything they sell that is their brand can knock out pretty everything else they sell from other brands, even the big stuff. Although I maybe a tiny bit biased due to the fact that where I live, go 5 miles any direction, you can expect a Food Lion on the side of the road. So basically, Food Lions pop up as commonly as McDonalds, which says something. But I truly love Food Lion foods, and was super happy they got mentioned. Edit: Going through comments right now, glad to see so many people talking about Food Lion! :)
