Vodka Squirt vs. Vodka Diet Squirt

"[A]fter three to four drinks, people who used diet soda as a mixer had a breath alcohol level that exceeded the legal limit for an adult operating a motor vehicle. People who used regular soda in their drink did not."

It was a very small study, though, if that matters.

Sorry, not drinking anything called Squirt, it is making me gag right now.

OTOH, score one for the anti-aspartame team! Yisssssssss.

TheLetterL

@iceberg Or for the aspartame team. Depends on what you're looking for in an evening...

@iceberg I'm not just an anti-aspartame team member, I'm also the president. And I'm totally with you on Squirt. Do not want.

@fondue with cheddar although I will take sugar soda where I can get it (hola, cola mexicana!) i will take HFCS over chemical fake sweeteners any day, just a personal taste preference though.

fondue with cheddar

@iceberg Me too. I was just talking to my boyfriend about this last night. It just tastes wrong. When I accidentally eat something with artificial sweetener, it's like my body screams NONONO DO NOT EAT THIS IS POISON.

TheLetterL

...Squirt? Really?

rayray

@TheLetterL I suppose they were bound to run out of names for drinks eventually.

I'm looking at you, Qream.

@TheLetterL

Vodka and diet Squirt has to be near the top of the list for horridly vomitous drinks.

Rock and Roll Ken Doll

Preeeeetty sure you're supposed to mix Squirt with tequila.

hallelujah

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll It's basically law.

I LOVE SQUIRT. Seriously. Better than Fresca! (*a blasphemous gasp ripples through the crowd*)

@Alli525 Man, I used to looooove that shit as a kid! My grandpa used to drink it, and whenever we went out to visit them, I would just massacre bottle after bottle. I didn't know it still existed!

@katiemcgillicuddy
We have it here in Chicago. I'll trade you some for crab-flavor potato chips. The stash I brought home with me from xmas is running out.

katiemcgillicuddy

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll Deal. Crab potato chips are the devil's work (they are amazing).

redheaded&crazy

I miss Wink! Do you guys still have that in the states?

fondue with cheddar

@redheaded&crazy Squirt? Wink? Why do all these beverages sound like creepy uncles?

Lucienne

@redheaded&crazy Wink is my soda Holy Grail. We have it, but not very many places.

highfivesforall

It matters.

Lady Humungus

@highfivesforall Yep. Also, I would like to see an "alcohol, no sugar/sweetener" group included, like vodka sodas. Science!

parallel-lines

Tequila + Big Red: Do not recommend.

this reminds me of high school when we drank Zima (also do not recommend) because it was rumored to not show up on breathelyzers.

sharkburp

Youguys, the "squirts" is the tastiest drink. It's GRAPEFRUIT soda. Only those who go to Publix are in the know I guess. It also leads to some hilarious sayings from my grandma, like " us girls sure do love our squirts."

Jinxie

@sharkburp Heeew.

JanieS

Squirt + Malibu rum = surprise deliciousness. Just putting it out there.

CrossWord

Squirt is the secret ingredient in my sangria. No other (American) soda is as good. If you live somewhere where you can get your hands on Fanta Limon, then you know what to do.

mustelid

@CrossWord Fanta Limoooon I want yooooou

Every time I see a yellow bottle of Fanta from afar I'm like "maybe? maybe?" and it's always pineapple.
