Sounds like it is Ginger Beer.

Ginger beer is easy to make at home if a person wants to. I remember they did it on the old BBC "Victorian Farm" series.

Ginger beer has no alcohol. It is just old fashioned ginger-ale, I guess

Yeah, it is like most other soft drinks. Sugar is the #1 ingredient after water.

I can totally understand that reaction. It is just one of those things, like peanut butter, that if you don't have it as a child you don't have any acquired taste for it and it
will taste "gross"!

The PC stuff was ginger beer and it's been discontinued according to the website. Guess it didn't sell as well. The PC ginger ale is basically a watered down version though, unless they changed it to taste more like the other ginger ale brands.

And that video was fucking weird. I have no idea what I just saw but I'd like the time I spent on it back, please.

haha have to be a madonna fan to appreciate it - he redid the vogue from the girlie show - many fans loved that particular version

PC always cancels products - i hate how they get you hooked and than its gone - they used to have this great mango/vegetable blend blue label juice and it disappeared after a short while - it was so good and well priced at about $1.89 for almost 2 litres compared to the $3.97 prices of something similiar by a brand name like V8

Allow me to help you get rid of that awful thing you just saw.

I wish Canada Dry made a version with twice as much ginger, and two thirds less sugar/sweetner. Ginger beer is hit or miss. The home made stuff tends to be 100 times better than the store bought.
