Surge Is Making A Comeback And The World Is Strangely Enthusiastic About It

The good people at Coca-Cola are bringing Surge back into our lives because the internet made them. Get excited, I guess? The citrus-y 90’s soda, which was sold from 1997-2003, was marketed as a soda or a pseudo-energy drink depending on the day. It was kind of like a poseur version of Mountain Dew but…

Guy Thinks It’s Hilarious To Bathe Himself In Pepsi

We’re not really sure what prompted this normal-looking dude, Nate, to take a bath in 312 cans of Pepsi, but by all means, man, do what you gotta do. (Methinks it might be a Pepsi Max commercial disguised as a viral video.) I personally like to cleanse in soap and water and drink soda, but…

Mountain Don’t: Mountain Dew Introduces “Breakfast Drink,” World Becomes A Little More Like “Idiocracy”

Further proof the end times are here: Mountain Dew would like to provide its “extreme”-loving customer base with something that they can properly guzzle in the morning hours, so they’ve created Kickstart, a carbonated soda drink that contains five percent fruit juice.

Manly Men Will Only Drink Macho Diet Soda (That’s Dr. Pepper Ten’s Philosophy)

You’re probably expecting an avowed feminist like myself to put a diet soda commercial marketed to men with guns, ATVs and snake attacks on blast. It’s true, Dr. Pepper Ten’s new ad declaring “It’s not for women” is dripping with machismo like beads of sweat pour off a gator hunter in the Florida sun. But…

How Long Does Soda Really Stay Fizzy?

This guy clearly had way too much time on his hands at work. But I’m glad he did because I’ve always wanted to know how long Diet Coke stays fizzy for. If I drank Diet Coke. I don’t because I’m an aquaholic. But all the other Frisky ladies are DC enthusiasts. Now I…

Is the traditional Diet Pepsi can too short and fat for you? Are you embarrassed to be seen holding it? No worries, girlfriend.

Canna Cola, a new $15 can of soda made from pot, will start selling on Friday at medical marijuana dispensaries around the country.

Soda Lowers Dudes’ Sperm Count

Here in NYC everyone is freaking out because the governor, backed by the mayor, has proposed a tax on sugary drinks such as soda. But beyond just balancing the budget, it looks like this law could help guys in the sack. A Danish study found that men who drink a liter or more of soda…
