I've been drinking Coke and Pepsi since I as a kid and I think I've had my fill of soda's carbonated way. Pretty much every meal I eat outside breakfast involves either of these two brands of soft drink. Lately I've gotten back into drinking birch beer again after not having it for a very long time and although it contains carbonated water, I prefer its taste and it lacks caffene which is good for me since I am borderline hypertension. Not to mention soda seems to be really taking a number on my poor stomach. I need something drinkable and healthier than soda but is actually edible.
For the record I am not a big fan of ice tea (Although I love hot tea but obviously not as a usual beverage, especially in the 90+ degree summer) and considered water but sometimes I need some flavor. Oh and before all the comedians arrive I am not a beer drinker.
Please post some suggestions here.
