    There is a group of people out there that get really defensive when others decide to do their own thing. They can really really wierd about defending their choices by attacking yours. Sorry you're stuck living with one of 'em.
    Funny, there are a lot of primal folks who could be described exactly the same way.

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        What's "holiday flavor" taste like anyway?

        Christmas trees?

          That's why I picked a bag up at whole foods, took them to work today. 3 people tried, 2 were with me in that they were gross, the 3rd gobbled them up though moaning between bites.

                    It's a holiday pack with flavors like "gingerbread cookie", "candy cane", "sugar plum", and "pear tree." Lovely, right?

                    And to everyone suggesting the Jones Gravy soda, ironically these are already Jones Soda flavors. That would make it all the more hilarious. "Oh, you want more Jones Soda roomie?"

So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                      No, it absolutely isn't. That's like saying people drink coffee because the flavors and colors make them think they are getting nutrition out of it. Nope. People have been drinking coffee a LONG time, they've been told it's bad for them and people still drank it, they've extracted the caffine and people still drink it, and that drinking has bupkiss to do with nutrients. If you ask most drinkers why they drink it, they'll give you one answer: because the taste pleases them. It is done for pleasure, for enjoyment, not nutrition. Same with soda. People don't see the color and say, "that must be full of nutrients!" They enjoy the taste and say, "I want to enjoy more."
                      You set up a straw-man argument by making it seem like I was saying they consciously think it is nutritious because of the color. Wrong. It's quite subconscious.

                      The fact (that you agree with) that it would NOT be appetizing without the flavor and color, and carbonation, proves the point I was making. And to make the link between what I was saying, and coffee, is absurd. Coffee is nowhere near the "fakeness" of soda. Coffee contains all sorts of things we don't fully understand. Soda on the other hand is sugar water, with flavor, with color, and with carbonation.

                      And if you've resorted to getting enjoyment in your life from an aluminum can of sugar water, flavor, color, and carbonation, maybe you should recalculate things.

                        It's not subconscious, it's simply not there at all.

                        There are many clear sodas. Years ago there was a fad of selling clear versions of normally colorful sodas - people didn't seem to care. Some uncarbonated beverages are consumed like soda (and can be carbonated - e.g. Apple juice + carbonation apparatus = sparkling apple juice) and I've heard of people intentionally serving hot/flat dr pepper for example. So I don't agree that soda categorically would not be appetizing to somebody if not for the color and carbonation.

                        As for fakeness, that's not really a requirement of soda. And you miss the point on coffee... Actually, you show your bias on coffee. You talk about what we don't know as if the health benefits matter. 20 years ago people were routinely told that coffee was a mutagenic cancer causer with NO health benefits and should not be consumed. You know the results? Did it make coffee less popular? No. People enjoy the taste. They do what they enjoy.

                        Maybe they should recalculate things. The world wasn't built for our enjoyment, and, like sex, maybe drinking should be a serious undertaking. Maybe.

                        For now, though, your analysis is all askew because you are assuming a motive (nutrition seeking) which does not exist.

                          I like sodas and actually I can see how all of those would be appealing.

                          Soda is definitely empty calories....but not unenjoyable to some of us. What is obnoxious is people shoving what you don't want in your face after you say "no thanks!". It's equally obnoxious to say "Oh that stuff is nasty".

                          It is human nature to want to share what you enjoy with people. It's a two way street though. You should politely decline and they should desist. Being rude about food choice is becoming epidemic. I remember eating a tofurkey sandwich at lunch a few years ago and this bitch, every day would let me know that "That is just foul". OK, fine, I'm not even offering you a bite, but must you be unpleasant? It looked like a plain sandwich, no odor. She also did WW and LOVED to critique the point value of people's lunches. "That is so many points".

                          Unless someone comes to you and says "What do you think of the taste and nutrition value of these Chips Ahoy?", just don't say anything. No one actually cares to be educated. If someone is an actual asshole about offering you food, sure, be an asshole back, but "Yay, my holiday soda came, would you like one?" (or "I baked cookies" or "Have a slice of my mom's fruit cake"is not being an asshole and merits a response like "No thank you, you enjoy!". "My holiday soda came, you are an IDIOT to not want some are you surrrrrreeee you don't, why do you follow that crazy diet" is being an asshole.

                          Everybody enjoys a different mix of foods and no one has a "perfect diet". Also, no one has the same palette. Just because I don't like beer and margaritas doesn't mean I am somehow superior over in my chair swilling vodka and club soda.

                          Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!

                            I once had a soda that I thought tasted like Christmas tree. I liked it

                              My girlie prissy response, "If you were truly confident in what you were eating, you wouldn't constantly be belittling my food."

                              I do like Him's responses - more manly.

                              The only mac'n'cheese I miss is fiber gourmet pasta with butter and some very very ripe, stinky, and runny brie or camembert. And maybe the old fashioned baked version my mom used to make. But the store bought versions are crap even for the more healthy of SAD eaters (and those with taste).
