Thanks to a recent discussion on where to find Canfield's diet chocolate soda on this board I have had my first taste of this liquid delight. You have no idea how good this is when one is on The Liquid Diet. I had never heard of Canfield's chocolate soda before.
In terms of the most important issue, this stuff tastes very good. There is definately none of the nasty after taste one would find in say, a Diet Coke. Just a nice, chocolaty soda taste. It does seem to loose its fizz pretty quickly though.
Beverages Direct is out of Chicago, so I got my shipment of Canfield's within a week of placing my order, shipped UPS surface. The only issue I had with the ordering experience with the Beverages Direct web site is that to my recollection they did not disclose an "order handling charge" in addition to the item charge and the shipping charge. The additional charge was only three bucks, but I was not very happy that (at least to my recollection, which could be wrong) they did not disclose this until AFTER I clicked on the order Submit button.
