[quote]Vernor's has ginger in it.
Not as much as before. It tastes really watered down now.
The real question is: Why do I only seem to drink ginger ale at 30,000 feet?
Why do they call it butter, when there is no butt in it?
It used to have ginger in it.
I'm drinking a can of Vernor's right now, and there is NO ginger listed in the ingredients.
Because at one time it did have ginger in it, and the name stuck even as the ginger was replaced by "natural" and artificial flavors. I'm sure you could have figured that out if you really, really thought about it.
You might also be surprised to learn that there are a lot of flavored drinks (orange, cherry, grape, for example)that don't contain any actual fruit.
And, sour apple Jolly Ranchers have no apple, and strawberry Twizzlers no strawberry. Go figure.
Why is it called 'ale', when it's no longer brewed?!?
I used to love it, but now it gives me the trots.
LOL, R4? When I was a kid, I thought that Peanut Butter had butter in it and refused to eat it 'cause I hate butter.
Why do they call them Girl Scout Cookies, when there are no girl scouts in them?
Canada Dry Ginger Ale advertises it's "Made from Real Ginger."
Does hamburger have ham in it?
I love you, R3
OP why are you an idiot?
Because it was developed by a redhead.
I first had a ginger beer in Bermuda on vacation and -- wow!
That's some ginger flavor. It was actually "hot" from all the ginger.
How dull. We always spent time talking about who was in Ginger, not what Ginger was in.
What R12 said. The ginger recipe is a "secret" that's why they use "natural flavors" instead of "ginger" in the ingredients list.
Ginger ale still has ginger and is still good for an upset stomach/GI.
Redneck caviar doesn't have any rednecks in it.
Why do they call it baby oil when it's not made from babies?
I think ginger ale is just Coke and Sprite mixed together, although I can't prove it.
You need some Buffalo Rock ginger ale. It has a real ginger bite to it that almost burns--and it's delicious. It's practically the best thing in Alabama.
And it does all sorts of other good things:
[quote]My name is T. Limbaugh and I wanted to tell you how much my family appreciates Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale. My husband recently had a tumor removed from his optic nerve and pituitary gland. He has experienced severe nausea since his surgery and we've tried everything. We were using another brand of ginger ale and his neurosurgeon told us that Buffalo Rock would do the trick. We searched high and low 'till we found some and sure enough, it worked!! His nausea subsided and he was able to function somewhat normally again. Thank you so much for manufacturing such a wonderful product!!!"
Ginger beer is great and most kinds are non-alcoholic, though homemade ginger beer usually is. It's easy to make too.
I like to squeeze fresh ginger into lemonade made with carbonated water. You can make it as intensely ginger as you like and it is wonderful. It tastes fresh and clean and really does a great job on a sensitive or upset stomach. Ginger is relatively inexpensive here in S. CA so we make it all the time. Works great in tea too.
Too poor to go to the store
There's at least one red pubic hair in every can.
Are you serious. The British are too busy running away from Germans.

You know that "natural flavors" are flavors created in a lab with chemicals, and no actual natural ingredient is present, right?
Dear R25 - take one piece of fresh ginger,
Take ginger and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS.
r34 is funny cause it's true.
I suppose you think there are roots in root beer and coke in coke?
There used to be both, R36.
Why do they call them finger sandwiches when they're not made of fingers?
I don't think cumquats have cum in them.
[quote] I don't think cumquats have cum in them.
Because they're kumquats, but nice try.

Nice try yourself.
In the pediatric ward when I was a student nurse, we gave kids ginger ale when they were thirsty but nauseous. We boiled it until it was flat, then poured it over ice chips to chill it. We only used Canada Dry.
You're both pedantic pus warts!
Why is it called common sense when it isn't common?
