Ready to get the sweet answers to our fizzy quiz?

Sodas are some of the most popular beverages in the world, sold in every country in some shape or form. Some of the most popular soda brands, like Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew and Coca-Cola, are key products from some of the most successful companies in the United States (and globally as well). Today, no matter where you go, you're bound to find sodas everywhere. From the movie theater to fast food restaurants or from convenience stores to bars, sodas are here to stay. This popularity of sodas means that making a quiz of 40 was exceptionally hard... because there are just so many of them!

One interesting thing to note is the fact that sodas or carbonated drinks can actually trace their roots back to the medical world. However, this changed quickly, as making carbonated lemonade and mineral water available to consumers became an attractive option. Soda fountains in particular became a success in the United States, and their popularity can be referenced as a large part of the enduring success of sodas to this day.

So, grab a glass and some ice, and let's cool off with this refreshing soda quiz!
