    Now the cola is the one flavor I haven’t tried. Too strong?

    Mind you, I'm not a coke drinker anyway, but if I have a soda I want an ice cold soda. With Tailwinds being inherently warm it just tasted like a coke that was opened and sat in the sun for a couple hours. YMMV. I seem to remember many folks saying they really like that flavor.

    I’ve had one soda in the last 15yrs and it was on the WW50 ride, so it tasted amazing:Roflmao
    I have a sample of the cola, I’ll find out sooner or later!

    I like where this thread is headed. A veritable cornucopia of Tailwind mixing bliss. And alcohol. :thumbsup:

    The cola tastes like a flat Coke. But for some reason, I liked it. Not sure I need that much caffeine though.

    The Green Tea is, well, probably my last choice. It's not horrible, but it's not great. One thing I learned the hard way. Having ONLY tailwind and no actual fresh water SUCKS!!! I need to rinse that sweet pasty Sh!t outta my mouth!

    Actually, that's another benefit of Tailwind. I don't have that need/craving for a massive sugar (HFCS) dump at the end of a ride that I got pre TW. I too had not had a soda in 10+ years, but got a cold Sprite from the fountain at Sharkey's after a particularly hot ride and in context it was one of the greatest tastes that had ever passed my lips.

    No, not too strong at all. More root beer than cola. It's good, not great for the reasons mentioned above. I bet it would be awesome mixed with a soda steam!
