Of course we do. Sodas of that type help us keep focused while we drive around in our pick-up trucks shooting at road signs. They go great with road kill fricasee, and provide us with enough sugar to keep our 430 pound pasty white bodies looking their best. :) Lets be honest we all would try the coffee flavor, and 98% of us would give the Bacon flavor a go.

I "might" be persuaded to take a sip of the coffee flavour (I'm not a coffee fan, to be honest), but bacon?

Ick.

And what is Ranch Dressing anyhoo?

Most of them sound really awful. Is that what they serve when cousins marry

Go on - you'd be tempted, admit it! :P

Sounds like a fun idea to me - can't be any worse than deep fried Mars bar. :lol:

Bouncy asked "What is Ranch Dressing?" I wish I could explain it: a salad dressing, and condiment to dip fried chicken in, a bottle of which you will find in almost every home in the country. It is God-awful, yet delicious all at the same time. Just like Marmite.

Ranch Dressing definition on Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranch_Dressing

While highly popular in the United States, ranch dressing is virtually unknown in the rest of the world

May I point out here that Majomull lives in the western part of Massachusetts, which, to us snobs who live in the eastern part of the state, is the equivalent of living in a shotgun shack on the banks of an alligator-infested creek in the Ozarks. :D

This is so true. It's probably replaced Thousand Island dressing (also known as Russian dressing) as one of the more noxious products of American condiment manufacturing (longtime Rumpole watchers will remember that Thousand Island Dressing was one of his biggest complaints about living in the states during the short time he was in retirement).

Thousand Island dressing, disgusting stuff in resturants in the 70/80s they used drown the prawn cocktail starters in it. Image

I just looked up the Wikipedia article on ranch dressing. Leaving aside the fat factor, it is owned by [EFF!]ing Clorox?! I thought they made cleaning agents, not [EFF!]ing condiments! :shock:
