    where in the world is Beverly?

    So Ive been touring around Italy for past week, so far ive not found anyplace that carries the drink that is sampled at Club Cool in Epcot (though I hear it was recently switxhed out). Ive also asked few people about it and they never even heard of it, including our American tour guide with 30 years experience in Italy. Coca cola, coke zero and coke light (diet coke) is very common though.

    Have I been mislead in thinking it was a common drink here?

    It was discontinued in 2009. It seems to only be kept alive in the three Coke-tasting facilities in Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Epcot.

    Thanks for the info, I never heard it was discontinued. I wonder why it was chosen to represent Italy when it wasn't very popular here either.

    FYI, Beverly is one of the flavors that stayed with the switch-out at Club Cool.

    Also, Beverly was marketed as a non-alcoholic apéritif (drinks served before a meal as a palette cleanser and to stimulate the appetite - they're usually alcoholic in nature, such as champagne, vermouth & gin). It was not marketed as a traditional soda that you drink during or after a meal.

    I read that and I'm baffled that out of all flavors to stay that Beverly had. Is it honestly that popular for it to stay?

    Besides, me not liking it, I know commonly in there I often see negative reactions, people almost getting sick sometimes, tricking other friends and family members to drink it, or daring others to drink it due to it's taste.

    THAT is why it stayed. People like to trick unsuspecting family members, friends or other tourists into trying Beverly to see the reaction.

    I can do a shot or two without making a face, which is fun to watch people react to me when I do so. A month or 2 ago a couple tween girls saw me getting some Beverly and were all "Don't drink it!" I downed it with no reaction and their jaws about hit the floor.

    Re: where in the world is Beverly?

    Beverly was not discontinued... with the research I've done, I've found that it never existed beyond Coca-cola sponsored venues like Club Cool and World of Coke. The idea of it being from Italy is completely made-up. Coca-cola played a prank on the world.

    Honestly, I find the entire thing hilarious.

    Then why did the Coca-Cola Italia website once have Beverly listed?

    Re: where in the world is Beverly?

    I found it interesting that the Beverly sold online was colored red. At Club Cool, it is colorless. That being said, I like Beverly. I would take a shot of it just before riding Mission Space orange.

    It was on the site, yes. A Coca-cola run site. I've never found any proof of it EVER being available in Italy.

    Man Beverly, first time I tasted it I ran around for a minute searching for a better soda to wash it down. Ended up chugging 3 cups of Melon Frosty Fanta :P .

    Where in the world is Beverly?

    How to have a Beverly-like beverage at home!
    Mix a cup of Vegemite
    with a 2 cups of tonic water
    and half a cup of Dr. Pepper that expired at least three years ago. (Available at the Vons in LaVerne, California?)
    Add a table spoon of blue cheese dressing, one teaspoon of A1 Steak Sauce,
    and blend with half a cup of Ben and Jerry's Apologetic Vanilla or Cherry Castro,
    and one long earthworm.

    Serve it to others, insisting that it's good, then watch them trick others into sampling it.
