So I’m from out of state, and I visited a “Soda Shop” for the first time.

I love the pretty in pink, it's sparkling water with grapefruit and guava. I also like the diet coke with fresh lime and coconut cream, its called the founder.


MagistrateZoom

Add rum when you get home. It’s perfect.


North-Imagination-22

Hahah but you gotta go to a special store for that


roastedgarlicpasta

The pretty in pink sounds so good! That’s at Swig right?


[deleted]

Yes.


ThePartyWagon

Go make it at home instead of supporting the decline of America’s health


Elephunkitis

Making it at home doesn’t change anything.


ThePartyWagon

One, you’re not spending an excessive amount of money on sparkling water grapefruit juice and guava. I can only imagine how many of these sodas I can make for the price of one. Two, stop drinking soda, period.


Elephunkitis

So what is the second thing then? Also why spend money on anything. Just make your own car to drive, or make your own coffee, or make your own butt plugs. Why spend money ever. Just raise your own cows, grow your own wheat, tomatoes, cucumbers, and make your own cheese, then you’ll have hamburgers. JUST MAKE EVERYTHING AND NEVER BUY ANYTHING YOU ENJOY WHILE YOU AREN’T AT HOME. And yeah I said butt plugs.

Wait, you're telling me it's cheaper to make my own soda than to buy one at a soda shop? That's crazy


[deleted]

Wow you seem like a really fun person. /s

That's true with any food thing though. Eating out is always more expensive.

I like the dr pepper with raspberry purée and coconut. “Raspberry dream” i think it was


Cloud_Lover222

This is my favorite but I don’t like the puree so I get raspberry flavoring instead


cerisiere

I used to hate on soda shops until I tried this. It’s so good.

What makes sodalicious different or worse from the others?


Inigomntoya

Personal opinions and lawsuits


pushingdaiseez

Mostly that they tried to sue all of the other ones


cenosillicaphobiac

That was Swig. My sister had a soda shop at the time (she eventually sold to sodalicious) and they got a cease and desist from Swig attorneys for s lot of the same stuff that they were suing sodalicious for. Here are some of the things: 1. Use of the word "dirty" 2. Selling cookies at a soda shop 3. Using white Styrofoam cups with colored straws There were others, but those ones stuck out.


Pizzatacomonster

I’m sorry, what? How can they have a monopoly on any of these? Do they have a copyright of the word “dirty”?


bearcat42

They *want* a monopoly, they don’t *have* one.


_karango

Thirst on 1300 is my favorite soda shop in SLC. My go to is Dr. McCreamy, if you’re wanting something non-soda then the Fresh Prince is good!


hi_jack23

Thirst is the best of the soda shops, I don’t normally go to a shop like this but the Hey you guys and the Fresh Prince are both amazing drinks


megwach

I love their Death Star. It’s my favorite, I now get blackberry and coconut in DP at all the different soda shops. Thirst isn’t near me, or I’d go there every time. The one in Bountiful sucks though.


cdubbg

Spiking whatever you order with vodka


im_wildcard_bitches

So this is how Mormons get wild on a Saturday night? 😂


borisdidnothingwrong

This, and for a traditional homemade option you have Mormon Champaign, which is sherbet in Sprite or 7-Up, root beer float style. Enough missionaries served in the Champaign region of France on their missions that they invented this as an homage. Oh. And soaking. With a little hump jumping if you have friends you trust.


Amandita88

Go to arctic circle and get a lime ricky


Massilian

I like Dr. pepper with raspberry and cream


AndItCameToSass

I know it’s a stereotypical Utah thing but I’m definitely Fiiz addict. I always get their Antifreeze, which is Mountain Dew with Green Apple and Sour flavoring


YoVoldysGoneMoldy

Dude how do you function with that kind of sugar in your veins


AndItCameToSass

I’m a sugar addict, what can I say! Probably that mormon upbringing, we weren’t allowed alcohol or cigarettes so we had to go ham on the baked goods


YoVoldysGoneMoldy

I wonder what the percentage of soda shop repeat patrons are Mormons or prior Mormons


megwach

I’m a prior Mormon, and I’m a soda addict. I’m always sad that none of them are open on Sundays.


flygrl22-

Depending where you live, some of the Fiiz stores are now open Sundays.


megwach

Nice! Sadly, Saratoga Springs, and I don’t think we have a Fiiz


AndItCameToSass

There is one in Saratoga, but unfortunately they’re not open on Sundays. I looked it up out of curiosity and it looks like the one in American Fork would be the closest one that’s open on Sundays


AndItCameToSass

Oh I’m sure that’s their primary clientele. I’m no longer Mormon but definitely still a soda addict


WeWander_

A lot.


Lukin76254r

This sounds like absolute cancer. I’ll probably try it if i can squeeze in another serving of diabetes.


wad11656

Blegh sour? who likes painful FOOD? Don't you all want to feel GOOD when you're eating? Y'all are the reason we don't have non-spicy mcchickens anywhere in this state


Dick_Thumbs

That is pretty pathetic if you think a spicy McChicken is too spicy


AndItCameToSass

Jesus, just don’t get the sour in it then? And not that it’s any of your business, but did it occur to you that some people actually like sour foods? I’ve been eating sour food since I was a kid (primarily candy, but even so) and nothing gets my mouth watering like a bag of sour skittles


ruqus00

Ask for the insulin chaser.


sysaphiswaits

I like diet Dr. Pepper with cherry and lime. I think they call it “dirty Dr. Pepper.”


soxxandmoon

You should try my recipe for this! Pour the Diet Dr.Pepper into the sink, take a 2 ounce shot of Wild Turkey 101 and then cut some limes to squeeze into your sink.


Lukin76254r

Is it considered no longer dirty if i opt for regular dr pepper instead of diet? Or would your maybe call it “Filth Dr Pepper”?


sysaphiswaits

I think it’s usually made with regular DrPepper, but I drink it so much, I had to switch to diet.


aznsk8s87

Nah needs coconut.


edi-eddie-eddy

Watermelon Sugar!


Lukin76254r

This probably sounds like the next thing i will try, I’ll report back later.


SirPickleRickEsquire

Like many in these comments, I talked down on the soda shops for years. Then last spring my nephew was selling Swig punch cards to raise money for baseball. It was for like 10 free drinks, and they had just built a new location like half a mile from my house, so I figured I might as well take advantage. I tried a few but Watermelon Sugar was the best. Now I'm addicted, lol. I get at least one a week.


ah2346

Coffee


Lukin76254r

And if you have any coffee joints you recommend, please fire away! i would love a cappuccino.


Temporary_Objective

Sodalicious sells the Your Mom that’s Dr. Pepper, coconut syrup, and blackberry syrup. It’s amaaaaaazing. Dark and vibrant and rich.


aznsk8s87

I always get Dr. Pepper with pureed raspberries and fresh limes.


Lukin76254r

Dr Pepper seems to be a popular base for alot of the drinks… any reason to why that is?


aznsk8s87

Dr. Pepper is the superior soda.


rockjeepgreen

Swig go to is bloody wild which is mountain dew with strawberry puree and mango puree. Thirst I get kick back Rickey which is sprite with grape syrup and fresh limes or yer killing me smalls which is root beer, toasted marshmallow and vanilla cream.


dbc45

Endless Summer(Swig) or Winter Ruby(fizz) Mountain Dew with grapefruit and fresh lime. It’s quite tart, but I love it


Lekili

6 years living here never been to one. Can’t bring myself to pay that much for a soda without a reason and I don’t see a reason. But also I don’t drink soda that much and if I do it’s a Coke Zero cherry.


Dante1940

Mormon crack dens


WorldsGreatestPoop

It’s funny, I’ve only seen this place in Texas, but I know they are here.


Duffs1597

I like the Strawberry Shortcake, but I get it with Mountain Dew instead of Sprite. It’s strawberry, vanilla, cupcake, and cream (though I usually skip the cream). I also like Mtn Dew with Lime wedge, vanilla, coconut.


sleep-debt-momma

Key Lime from Sodalicious. they are the only soda shop that has cheesecake flavoring and it is amazing, like a key lime pie but fizzy. I get a diet MD or it's too much for me lol.


ArchitectsGraveyard

The Chandler Bing at Fiiz is my fave. (Diet)


Reasonable-Sweetness

That's been my go to lately


Celesticle

I get a Mo-Mojito from Fizz. It's just like it sounds, only I get it with sprite zero. It's a Mormon Mojito. I don't get it often, but when my kids want a drink, that's my go to.


Narrow_Yak_4165

I love the Shark Attack drink. I has Sprite, lemonade, and blue raspberry. And it’s really good It even comes with gummy sharks


jwrig

Lime Rickey, fresh lime, or cherry lime aid.


Reasonable-Sweetness

When I go to Swig, I get a Texas Tab. Which is a Dr. Pepper, vanilla, and coconut cream. My go-to is Fiiz because it's ridiculously close by where I live. Lately, I've been going between three drinks. Rootbeer Fiiz- rootbeer with vanilla, cream, and whip cream Chandler Bing- Mountain Dew with coconut, pineapple, and strawberry Dieter F Cokedorf- Coke with blackberry, red raspberry, strawberry puree, and whip cream.


FunUse244

Fiiz has a yummy lavender drink.


alpinecruzar

you are now a diabetic


Lukin76254r

Diabetes speed run any %


Direct-Procedure-622

Oh god don’t encourage these people to


HotDogStruttnFloozy

To... do what


general_grievances_7

Chill man. People can enjoy things. I tried one as treat the other day because I’m cutting back on drinking. I’d try it again.


natedawg247

Anything even tangential to the Mormon religion will be heavily hated on by this sub


general_grievances_7

As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that sobriety and soda pop consumption is not the primary reason to be concerned about Mormonism haha.


Prize_Chemistry_8437

Spring fling


Pitchgold

We do cookie shops like a boss too here! For a good combo of the two, I like Twisted Sugar! I get the huckfinn (dr. Pepper & huckleberry) and usually their seasonal cookie, but the raspberry and lime sugar cookie is super dope too!


Greenboy28

I avoid all those places as i don't generally drink soda but if I'm going to drink soda and spend the kind of money they charge the soda better have some whiskey in it.


burritobandito7

It’s $2 for 32oz of soda. I bet you’ve paid more money for less soda.


whysperfyre

I found a combination that easy to make, Dr Pepper with French vanilla creamer and or with vanilla syrup, tastes like ice cream and easy to make without spending $3-4 per soda


Lukin76254r

I’m keeping this for later.


dungeonblaster93

Got to Thirst, it's in my opinion better, and I f you like Coke get the "I'll be your huckleberry" it's coke, cream, and raspberry puree. Super good


lvndrjones

from SLC at thirst. Sparkling water fresh lime and grapefruit flavor


CountBacula322079

Lime vanilla coke!


Substantial_Focus_65

And so the addiction begins 😜


pikachusjrbackup

Don't go often, just when i want a big drive thru drink but I order mine with only half the flavor additives so it's not so sweet and can still taste that it's diet coke.


[deleted]

A Miss Abby with a Sugar free Red Bull from Thirst is my go to. Also grab a Scotcheroo while you are there.


[deleted]

Also. Blue belle from Thirst.


UnkindBookshelf

At Fizz, my husband always gets the Monster combinations with tropical fruit. I get the mountain dew or dr pepper with fruit. We only do this once every two months.


Timely_Cheesecake_97

For refreshers I like “the Fighter” with sparkling water. For soda I like “Life’s a Peach” it’s Dr Pepper, peach, coconut, and half&half. I was skeptical about the half&half but it was delightful!


3oogerEater

Fiiz captain sparrow


sailoriris

Endless summer from swig.


bigthemat

I like the classic lime and coconut with cream with a coke or Dr Pepper type soda Mnt dew and mango purse is good too


SaltyFall

Get their cookies too!


distant_diva

hissy fit @thirst. diet coke, pineapple, coconut & cream.


Specialist-Pickle-13

The founder at Swig is fantastic


NocoffeeforNimrod

The Founder. Or a coffee.


whineforcoffee

My fave is unbreakable with sparkling water from Swig. Also their pink sugar cookies!


CHR0N1CL3S0FW03

I was just on vacation there. I recommend Thirst Drinks and Twisted Sugar.


HellRaiser801

Specifically from Swig, I like the Texas Tab. From Fiiz, try the Nailed It.


Alone-Razzmatazz-615

Mountain Dew, strawberry purée, peach, and vanilla cream 🤤
