  • I like to use the Pineapple & Coconut flavour with white rum for a cheat's Pina Colada. Thumbs up from me.

  • The apple cider is REALLY good, if for some reason you wanted a non-alcoholic cider.
    All of them are very sweet though.

  • Only in Victoria, I think.

    • And Tas. Probably WA too. Places with no deposit scheme.

    • Fixed deal for all states.

      The only CDS laggards are TAS and VIC. Their schemes will start in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

      Note that if you take the CDS deposit into account, those two states don't actually have the cheapest prices.

      • My time spent returning them isn't worth 10c per bottle. I hate the scheme. Go ahead and neg me

        • "My time spent placing them in a bin isn't worth it" for too many people is the reason that we do have a CDS 😉

          But yeah, having to make a special trip just to return a handful of containers won't be worth their time for some (a lot of?) people.

          On the other hand, I collect my neighbour's containers (most of whom give them away for free) and I have a depot next to my local Bunnings (and also on the way to the shopping centre) that pays cash. So when I'm planning on driving past, I load up my car with $50.40 of containers (in cartons of 24 and 36 so there's no individual counting involved) and I'm in and out in no time. 😎

  • Love the taste but always think I'll get diabetes when drinking it

  • Put two bottles of the sarsaparilla and 2kg of pork shoulder in a slow cooker for 18 hours and you've got yourself a good time.

  • Love the passionfruit flavoured one!

  • I bought some Lemon, Lime, Bitters last week for $4 from Woolies.

  • Tasty, but packed with sugar

  • Factoring in CDS is rather pointless as any money earned will be cancelled out by the petrol costs of driving there and back. Would only really be useful if you were within close walking distance.

    • Note exactly true:

      • If you were driving there anyway
      • If you were getting it delivered (and had options for free delivery)

      I don't disagree that it's not exactly a big difference but it isn't completely pointless..

      Over a sufficient period of time CDS adds up (I'm well past $500 worth of CDS, probably close to $1000).

    • See my comment above for a different example showcasing how it's not necessarily pointless.

      Sure, if you live in an area where it requires a special trip, then it would be pointless. (Unless you load up your car with $50 worth of containers 😉)

      Not sure where you live, but yes a lot more could be done:

      • For example, more reverse vending machines especially at shopping centres. (Though these have a capacity issue, particularly with glass.)
      • Or how about home deliveries in crates, where the delivery person at the same time picks up the previous crates which can be filled with containers?
      • Or even being able to return the containers to the supermarkets themselves? (Yes, yes, I know. I've actually worked there and understand the logistic issues, but they can be overcome.)
  • Do people really factor in CDS when purchasing now? It seems such a weird thing to put in a table.

    • Yes. That's why I added it in the table. But also to give a more accurate price comparison amongst the states. (Now that we in WA have a CDS you'll see me adding more of these tables 😉)

      You'd be surprise how many people do actually avail themselves of that 10¢. For example

      South Australia leads the nation in the recovery, recycling and litter reduction of beverage containers with a current, overall return rate of 76.7% in 2019–20. Beverage containers make up only 2.8% of litter because of this refund scheme.1

      Of course, that doesn't mean that 76.7% of people in SA redeem their containers—some part is due to curb side recycling and some due to people fossicking litter.

      • Oh I'm not saying that people don't avail the CDS offer, just that I'm surprised people factor it into the cost considering every I know retains the containers for weeks or months until there is a large enough pile to make it worthwhile going to the deposit centre.

  • just worked out what CDS stands for

  • These are awesome across the board - one of my favourite creaming sodas on the market.

  • controlled dangerous substance?

    • 😆 Was trying to come up with a good alternate for the 3LA, when I saw this.

      Time to give up now.

  • It's sad if we're effectively being charged 10c extra per bottle. Effectively on something that's $1 that's a whole 10% increase assuming you for whatever reason don't take the effort to get the can returned to the scheme!

    • What's sad is that we (as a society, in NSW) couldn't or wouldn't actually pick up litter.. and thus had to have a system put in place to make us change our behaviour - which requires us to charge 10c a bottle to get people to do something they should otherwise do.

      Since the CDS has gone in I have gone from picking up 2-3 bottles every DAY walking the dog to now going weeks without seeing a single bottle or can in my local neighbourhood/walk path..

      It's always going to be more expensive when you have to pay the Government to MAKE you do something you should have been doing in the first place.. sadly.

      • That's great to hear! I'm glad to see it's working. Maybe the government needs to start charging and paying for rubbish next too to discourage the rest of the junk on the streets and environment?

  • The lemonade version is the equivalent of vanilla.. and it's very very nice (as I'm not a big 'tropical/complicated fruit flavour) person.

    I drank a bunch of them at a wedding where I was the designated driver.. very refreshing on the hot day..

  • I never bought them (except ginger beer) until one of my friend bought the Guava flavour, wew they’re so nice. Love all the flavours

  • I just finished up my two boxes of Burgundee Creaming Soda from an earlier deal.

    I think I'll wait a bit before hitting up these drinks again.
