Except the first one, got all the others easily. Thanks for making us (not in the USA) think a bit for the answers!

you should also include some of the older softdrinks that aren't around anymore or that have limited availability.
shawneeo*us*
Mar 26, 2006

That was a good one, good idea. I'm confused though because I've always heard that cocacola had cocaine in it when it was first made, and that's where the coca comes from. I'm going to look it u0p now, but thats the only one I had any trouble with. Thanks!

LOTSA fun! I only knew Nehi from seeing it in movies ... do they still make it? For some reason, I still cannot get "soda pop" for the last half ... ... still U.Rule, Sarge!!!
iteachkidsAus*
Mar 26, 2006

OhMyStars! I blew it! You had "Soft Drink," not "Soda Pop!" Mea culpa, Sarge!
thimblenogginus*

Nice teaser, but I thought "soft drink" was redundant.

LeRainDrop*

Very fun, but I've never heard of this Nehi Soft Drink thing. The rest were delightfully simple.
CharmedPop
Mar 26, 2006

I figured out most of them except for the first! I being a popoholic should know it but it must not be from around here!?!?!? very nice, anything to do with pop is good in my book (just look at my username)! all i can say is w00t w00t keep them coming!
vlermaAus*
Mar 26, 2006

You're the MAN Sgtammo and I am most definitely thirsty for more of these great teasers. How do you come up with them? Didn't get the first one, but did manage all the rest, GREAT JOB!

Pretty Good
rbasch*
Mar 26, 2007

Good one... I got 4 out of 6...
#6 stumped me... What is Nehi? (I did solve that one as "Knee High" and figured there was a drink that sounded like that.)
PenedonoAca*
Mar 26, 2007

Good stuff! I got them all but #1 - couldn't figure out what 'knee high easy gulp' was... iii'mmm an idiot
j9mattfieldAus*
Mar 26, 2007

Fun - the only one that gave me pause was the Kola. Thanks!!!
tuckpawAus*
Mar 26, 2007

what is kne hi soda pop
coolpainter*
Mar 26, 2007

Great Teaser, even though 3 and 4 kind of answered esch other. Now, excuse me while I get a cold one...LOL!
leftclickAau**
Mar 26, 2007

Nice teaser, but ale and beer are not synonyms. Ale is a type of beer, so lager is beer but it is not ale. And I have never heard of nehi soft drink either in Australia.
bradon182001*us*
Mar 26, 2007

Not much I can add to my comment of a year ago, except to say that maybe it was a bit too easy for me, but I can understand that it would be difficult for someone not familiar with the different American brands.
doeheadAus*
Mar 26, 2007

Nehi has to be your local brand.It is not prevelant in all areas,so it was a very poor choice for a teaser.
jjdolphineAus*
Mar 26, 2007

1 & 6 were my difficulties, because Ive never heard of one, and I came up with Serria mist for the Mnt. Dew, (serria is mountain chain, mist-dew, Yhea) Great teaser though!
Mon05Aca*
Mar 26, 2007

Loved it, the only problem for me was Nehi, have no idea what that is.
babyceeus*
Mar 26, 2007

tried to solve this before that first cup of coffee. this one stumped me. only got one right.
asfidelinoA*
Mar 26, 2007

I got #s 2 to 5. Got the "knee high" part of #1 but don't know about that soft drink brand. I should have gotten #6 but I didn't. Fun.
MurfQ*ca*
Mar 26, 2007

Much fun! I've never heard of a Kola plant, so I didn't get the last one
Trishgal*us*
Mar 26, 2007

I could not get 1 or 6 , I did get Nehi but kola completely alluded me although once I saw the answer it made perfect sense isn't that the way it always works Anyway I loved it and I hope you send more of this type of teaser. THX
auntiesisAus*
Mar 26, 2007

Nehi was a very good choice for this teaser, because it is not one of the popular brands. We have Nehi in Ct. and I had it in Az., so I don't think it is a regional brand. Great teaser, Sarge. We need some more from you. My best to you.
jcann*us*
Mar 26, 2007

This was fun. I didn't know #1 either, till I looked at the answer. I've heard of Nehi and I think we have it here in Iowa, but I probably couldn't think of it because I don't buy it. I think my parents used to get Nehi Organge Soda. I'll be checking the shelves next time a go to the store!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Mar 26, 2007

Nehi used to be a very widely known brand name and quite large. In fact it was a national brand name drink. But, was later bought out by a larger company. So, it was a decent brand name to use for the older generations. Fantastic teaser! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Keep them coming!

I like it! It was really cool!

This was great!! Made me think, and it was fun. Bravo!!!
jabdrAus*
Mar 26, 2007


ARGH@*% To think I got Nehi immediately, But couldn't make sense of 'soft swallow'. And I loved this drink a 'few' years ago. Great job, Sgt

Hey Sarge, great quiz! I finally figured one out entirely before I peeked at the answers (and got them all right). Boy did I feel smart for once!
jamy400Aus*

Great teaser!!Very clever!!This is so going on my faves!!

How were we supposed to get, 'Nehi soft drink?' I've never heard of it before.

Otherwise good job!!!!!

There were a couple that I had never heard of before, but great teaser all the same!
breathesunshineAus*

I'm in the club with those that have never heard of Nehi before but got all the rest. Fun one!
shawneeo*us*
Mar 27, 2007

I can't believe this! A year ago, I thought there was an error in the teaser, a factual error. Now, I happen to be a SGTAMMO TOTAL FAN, I think he's like, the greatest guy in the world, and I told him what I thought. This year I looked it up and saw that I was correct about it. It's not just a simple matter though to change teaser, so I'm not sure if anything will be edited.

But, my POINT is: all you SMARTY-PANTS out there, saying "well, beer isn't the same as ale isn't the same as lager" and "it was tooooo EASY" and all that smarty-pants kinda talk, not ONE SINGLE ONE of you noticed this small factual error. Mind you, I'm not saying anything about sgt because I think its a great, fun teaser, and the glitch doesn't change that. I'm just amazed that with all the daily "oh, so easy", and nitpicking, that not any of the geniuses that comment here saw this thing, which you would have had to read and "think" about, although I "think" that's what wasn't happening, LOL! Just wanted to RUB IT IN a little, and inflate my little ego for a bit, while I have the chance!

okay, guess ya gotta be just a little older to get Nehi, which I did, but,duh, I missed #6. good teaser
QrystalAca*
Mar 29, 2007

ew, pop.

Somehow I still got 4/6. Missed the coca, oops, and nehi's other two words got me. Yay.
doeheadAus*
Mar 26, 2010

#1 slowed me down but the rest were pretty easy.
craniacAus*
Mar 26, 2010

Of all the ones to miss, I missed the last one. Not familiar with African herbs.
mzetlin
Mar 26, 2010

Great teaser, one problem (says the English major and editor):

The answer to your last item would be Cocoa-Cola.

Coca is not made from cacao but is actually a plant whose leaves are used to make cocaine.

Interestingly, the soft drink Coke has the name that it has because its original formula introduced in the late 19th century actually did contain cocaine.

Other than that, great teaser! And for the record I got Nehi though I've never seen it--I have heard of it many times.
EliosAus*
Mar 26, 2010

Haha! Fun teaser. Never heard of the first one, and was a thrown off by the cocoa in the last one ... I guess I was focusing too hard on the literal, I didn't pause to think about how it sounded.

Mt Dew FTW! \^o^/
emu77alu02us*
Mar 26, 2010

that was fun! Never heard of #1, but from the clues, I got it's pronunciation. Is it a Chinese drink? No, that would be Ni Hao!
mkinneym13*us*
Mar 26, 2010

I like this teaser! not too hard, but a lot of fun.

HABS2933Aca*

Easily got them all but the first one - I had the Knee and High part figured out but as I have never heard f "Nehi Soft Drink", I wasn't able to go anywhere with it
cutebugAus*

Old and worn out teaser again,what else needs said.
gaylewolfAus*
Mar 26, 2013

I don't drink a lot of pop/soda/soft drinks, but I live in an area where Vernor's Ginger Ale is produced. It's the best! If ever in Michigan, try some - or better yet, have a Vernor's float with vanilla ice cream!! Enjoy.
auntiesisAus*
Mar 26, 2013

Gayle, you have my mouth watering for a black cow, root beer and ice cream. Loved the quiz.

Fun quiz. I missed only the last one - I guess my brain was worn out from thinking by the time I reached that one.
