Popular and Unique Soft Drinks From Around the World

I've never had fungus tea, the cloudy juice left from the fermentation process of kimchee, or fermented dandelion and burdock roots, but I would be willing to try it. Some look downright tasty, like the cinnamon aroma of Guaraná Jesus from Brazil, or the ice cream soda from Pakistan, Pakola.

Almdudler is the brand name of a popular Austrian soft drink. The original Almdudler is a sweetened carbonated beverage flavored with herbs; its flavor is similar to ginger ale or elderflower cordial but with a somewhat stronger and more complex flavor. Almdudler has been called the "national drink of Austria". Its popularity in Austria is second only to Coca Cola; 80 million liters of the beverage are produced yearly.

One of the features of my wedding reception was an array of soft drinks ... one each of over 100 different brands/flavors. Many were bought at Galco's Soda Pop Stop - check out www.sodapopstop.com . (I'm told that the cucumber soda - Mr Q. Cumber - was surprisingly refreshing.) I'm partial to birch beers, myself - like root beer, but with a subtle to pronounced wintergreen tang depending on the brand.

Vodx, my family used to spend spring breaks in Austin, TX, with relatives (because we were too poor to take real vacations). We'd always bring back Vernors ginger ale, because it wasn't available in stores in the part of North Texas where we lived.

Now you can go to Albertsons and get it. Wonderful stuff. I've also had a Jamaican ginger ale served at a vegetarian restaurant in Dallas (I haven't seen this in stores). I don't recall the name of the brand, just that it was so spicy it just about took the top of my head off.
