Well, I like cherry coke, I'd be willing to give raspberry coke a try!

Interesting story behind my aversion to raspberries and raspberry-flavored foods. When I was a little kid, 4 or so, I had a respiratory infection of some kind and the dr. gave me a brand new antibiotic, Chloromycetin, aka chloramphenicol. I had not learned to swallow capsules so my parents cut open the capsules and disguised the nauseatingly-tasting powder with raspberry jelly in a teaspoon. After about 4 days I rebelled and refused any more. My mother, as mothers will, took the spoonful of medicine herself to show me it wasn’t so bad. She gagged and spit into the sink. That was the end of my taking Chloromycetin. Good thing, it turned out. The stuf turned out to have really nasty side-effects. Notably sometimes-fatal bone-marrow suppression. So I avoided that. The antibiotic is still in use, but only when absolutely needed, e.g. for plague. But to this day, more than 70 years later, I still get nauseated by the taste of raspberry—funny how the brain and memory work.

I'd give it a try. I like the taste of raspberry and I like spicy food/drink. Might never try it again and might decide it was something I wanted to continue to drink. We'll see.

Apparently some berries are high in antioxidants.  Sounds like a wholesome choice.

Bill, if you really want "gag, barf, yucch" you could use the coke [or craft beer] to wash down some olives [or uncooked eggs].  cheeky

It does not sound good to me. I don't drink much soda pop, but when I do, I like a good old recipe Coke.
As a kid, we mostly drank soda pop at a soda fountain in the drug stores. We varied from vanilla cokes, cherry cokes, and chocolate cokes...mixed at the soda fountain. We claimed that the vanilla cokes gave us a little "buzz". Brad

maybe back then as kids, did you know the sweet sugar value in any, or most of soda pops are unhealthy high in sugar, for one glucose rises and evidently bloods reads are very poor for the Kidneys

As far as I'm concerned, soft drinks are unfit for human consumption, regardless of additional flavorings. Although they do a good job cleaning up corroded battery posts. laugh

Fruits have their place, served over ice cream, in salads, or in meat sauces, however, excepting Margaritas & Bloody Mary's, I draw the line when it comes to adult beverages. And don't even think about polluting single malt Scotch with that stuff. But, that's just me.
