Beverly Soda Appreciation Thread

Beverly Soda Appreciation Thread

No Epcot trip is complete without a stop at Club Cool and some delicious Beverly soda, and best of all it's free!
I just love the stuff and have to down a couple of quick cups right off the bat, then I take two of the small cups with me so I can enjoy it during the walk to world showcase.

Though I guess it's not for everybody , so I do tend to trick a few people into trying it by so thoroughly enjoying it. I've no idea why so many people go after tasting it.

It's a shame they don't sell it at any of the Italian restaurants there, in fact it seems impossible to even buy online

Obviously the taste of Beverly is too sophisticated for your pedestrian taste buds

I don't think it's as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It's O.K., I don't think I would buy it if it were on the shelf here.

Yes, I would be one of these:
That said, it doesn't stop me from trying it every time.

Love it! While I'm not firmly on the "Beverly is the Best Stuff Yet" bandwagon, I don't get why people think it's so darn bad. I like sour and bitter flavors and don't mind Beverly.

On the other hand, I have a friend who think yogurt is "sour" - not just the plain no-sugar Greek stuff - ANY yogurt, despite it being loaded with sugary syrup and/or topped with berries. She hates Beverly.

We like Beverly too.
Always get it. It is the only one of those sodas I get.
It is fun to watch the people standing around watching US drink it We don't react the way they are expecting

I love Beverly and I aslo would love them to sell some in bottles, so I could carry one.
It is not for everyone, I think what gets most people is not taste but such a difference between all sweet sodas and Beverly.
Beverly could be also good with seafood, consider it a non alcohol alternative to beer.

I like Beverly, but then I used to like gin & tonics back in the day....
While it's not my favorite, Beverly makes a good chaser for the sweeter sodas.

Can you get San Pellegrino brand drinks in the US? Their chinotto is very similar, very easy to find it in Australia - I love it!

Out local World Market store had the Chinotto in this evening. They are having an Italian themed display at the moment.

I like the Beverly and Campari too. I lived in Italy for 7 years so I guess that might have something to do with it

Not to detract from those who love Beverly, there's a really delicious watermelon flavor drink (might be from Israel?). That's some good stuff
