These were the results from worst soda to best.

10. Crush

BabbleTop claims the original fizzy drink recipe was developed as orange soda in the early 20th century.

Although they are best known for the orange flavor, the choices don’t end there.

Depending on the country and location within that country, the possibilities are seemingly endless.

Some flavors are: Peach, Grapefruit, Strawberry, Watermelon, Pineapple, Grape and that doesn’t include all limited edition flavors.

Crush also makes a root beer and a coke.

When it comes to flavor selection, Crush walks on crutches.

However, what is missing is the actual taste.

To put it simply, there are other better tasting orange sodas out there.

9. 7UP

This soda brand has been around since 1929 and was created by inventor Charles Leiper Grigg.

His company, The Howdy Corporation, originally called the soda bib label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda but was shortened to 7UP Lithiated Lemon Soda.

Then in 1936 he switched to 7UP.

In fact, up until 1948, soda contained the mood stabilizer lithium citrate.

The brand comes in many different flavors but isn’t a fan favorite.

8. Mountain dew

A very controversial lemonade that is either loved or hated.

Mountain Dew is typically distinctive in flavor and distinct from other citrus-flavored sodas.

The soft drink is unique in that it actually contains a small amount of orange juice.

While there are a few different versions of soda, classic soda contains 55 milligrams of caffeine.

7. Fuel

Despite being marketing geniuses, this sugary soda came in at number seven.

Created in Germany, but in 1961 the Coca-Cola Company brought it to America to compete with 7UP.

This is another lemonade that people have strong opinions about.

It’s the classic Coke or Pepsi debate.

While Sprite is high in sugar, it has no caffeine and won’t make you crash an hour after drinking it.

6. Fantasy

According to BabbleTop, we can thank WWII for this lemonade.

Cut off from the US during the war, Germany meant Coca-Cola couldn’t get the right ingredients to make products, forcing the company to create something else.

This is where Fanta comes into play.

All of the ingredients were found in Germany and became a fairly popular soft drink in Europe and other parts of the world.

They come in many different flavors, although the orange flavor seems to be the most popular.

BabbleTop even called it one of the best orange sodas ever.

5. Barq’s Root Beer

BabbleTop understands that finding quality root beer is easier than you might think.

Many brands like A&W and MUG offer quality flavors, but Barq’s beats them all.

It has perfected its recipe and found the right dose of caffeine.

This sparkling find is usually found at the top of the list upon investigation.

4. Pepsi

This soft drink is number two among lemonades worldwide.

It was developed in 1893 and was originally called Brad’s Drink.

Pepsi and Cola’s rival remains strong and has been debated for decades.

Coke is said to have more sodium than Pepsi.

Also, Pepsi is said to have a much sweeter taste – which people usually love or hate.

BabbleTop reminded its viewers that years ago, Pepsi ran a taste-testing campaign that generated so much hype that Coke actually changed its formula.

3. Cola

Regardless of the changes to its formula, Coke beat Pepsi in the BabbleTop taste test.

The world’s most popular soda, the product was originally marketed as a medicine.

The company claimed it was a cure for morphine addiction, indigestion, headaches and even impotence.

Also, the original formula actually contained cocaine.

Although by 1929 it was no longer an ingredient.

As previously mentioned, the formula was changed again in 1985 after Pepsi gained popularity.

But it didn’t do well, so the company went back to its original recipe and called it Coca-Cola Classic.

2. Canada Dry Ginger Ale

You may be familiar with this fizzy drink as it is commonly used to heal an upset stomach.

BabbleTop ranks this at number two, ranking the soft drink as having a more refined flavor profile and just better all around.

While there are countless other options for ginger ale, Canada Dry really is the best.

Created in 1904, it was called dry because it was less sweet than many other drinks on the market.

1. dr pepper

At the top is this classic soda.

Even though it’s not found in as many restaurants or other self-serve fountains, fans are loyal.

It has a delicious and distinct flavor that remains unchanged for years.

It wasn’t until 2000 that the company even developed a diet version.
