It could be worse?

Seriously, I guess someone must like it or Coca-Cola would stop bothering to make it and send it to market.

Maybe it is because I like really hoppy, bitter beer but I didn't find anything weird or off putting about Beverly. It was quite delicious.

I'll be in Disney in less than a month

I wonder if I could fill up a few water bottles with Beverly The cast members would probably be too perplexed to try and limit me. Maybe sneak in a wee amount of gin too.

I love Beverly for the mere fact my son will never try soda again. Yes, we are totally jive, and told our 4 y/o son he could finally try soda when we got to Epcot. We gave him Beverly for his first soda try. He was so disgusted, to this day (he's 7 now) he still won't even take a sip of any soda.

That stuff is nasty, but to each his own.

I recently took my daughter and niece down to the Coke museum, and they went around and sampled all of the sodas. I made sure to be standing by when they tried Beverly. The look of happened at the same time. It was hilarious.

The worst part about Beverly is the aftertaste.

I was too afraid to try it on our last trip. Going to give it a go this time, wish my taste buds luck!

I finally tried it during my trip this past August. It tasted exactly like the stuff I had to drink the day before my colonoscopy...no lie! To each his own, but I can't imagine anyone liking this stuff! I did like the watermelon soda though!

In March I got my DS 5 to try it. He doens't get much soda at all, sometimes a Root Beer and even less often an Orange Soda and this is just in the past year or so. I thought great he'll drink this and won't want to try soda anymore. No such luck he loved it. That plan backfired.

This has to be the 'best-est', most devious, genius like parental move ever.

I'm almost afraid to ask but you're not going to stoop so far as to let him try Spam and tell him it's just really pink bacon.... are you???

I understand if a person doesn't like it, but why expect that everyone doesn't like it? Why are people amazed that others like Beverly? Kinda silly.
I expected it to be the rankest thing I'd ever drink and it wasn't. I thought some of the others were sickening sweet THEY almost made me sick. I think people assume soda will be sweet. It just reminded me of bitters & soda, which they use for nausea, believe it or not!

I kinda liked it.

Just behind the Character Spot in Future World, before you enter World Showcase.
