  • Cream soda

    I tended to try to buy and eat natural foods with little processing, even before the IC diagnosis. While trying to find a "natural" ginger ale to mix w/prune juice (which I had to stop) after surgery I stumbled across Virgil's cream soda. Has anyone else tried this brand? I have had it a few times now and it seems to be ok for me. (I am still waiting for my body to settle down from surgery, so sometimes my symptoms get confused.) The ingredients list: purified carbonated water, unbleached cane sugar, caramelized unrefined cane sugar, vanilla extract, natural flavors. I have seen where others have tried this brand of root beer, but the cream soda seemed a safer bet to me.

    I can't tolerate prune juice. I suggest extreme caution with it. I also have a problem with cream soda.

      cream soda

      I seem to have a problem with carbonation in general, but that's just me.
      Cream soda sure does sound good, though!

        I know that preservatives are a big issue for many of us w/IC, so I thought maybe this one would be better as it doesn't have any. I won't drink any of the mainstream sodas because of all of the stuff that is in them. Even cream sodas from these brands tend to have the preservatives and other highly processed ingredients.

        Bubbe1 - As to the carbonation - maybe you could make it go flat before drinking?

        Donna - I quit using the prune juice once I realized it was something to approach with extreme caution. Now I have a bottle in the cupboard that I have to figure out what to do with, since I was the only one who would drink it.

          I am wondering if it can also cause a bladder desease.

            If you have a full, unopened bottle, you might want to donate it to a food bank in your area.

              It would not surprise me. I think over-consumption of anything can cause myriad issues. Especially any food or drink items that are highly processed. When I started the thread it was never my intent to promote excess soda drinking. I was just curious if anyone else had tried this particular soda as an occasional diversion from the "normal" IC safe drinks. My mainstay drinks are: water, chamomile tea, plain mint tea, and sometimes fruit infused water. I puree pears, watermelon, and/or blueberries and strain through cheesecloth. I then add water and a touch of honey or sugar to accent the fruit.

                Thanks Donna. That is most likely what I will end up doing, because I would hate to see it go to waste.
