About This Quiz

Soda, also known as soft drinks, are delicious, albeit unhealthy, carbonated drinks that contain sweeteners and most times, artificial flavoring. Regardless if the sweetener is a syrup, comes from fruits or has sugar substitutes, these drinks are some of the best sellers in the refreshment industry. And today, we want to quiz you on them.

And we want to show you some of the most popular ones.
