kvass is made of weat or barley so it reminds you of beer although its non alcohalic.It reminds me of coke as well its pretty good.

The popular Soviet drink was Gazirovka, which is flavored like juice(COmes in many flavors, even tropical
) and has the same gas effect as COCA COLA, PEPSI etc...

I think you missunderstood me. First of all. its not a beer, its like Root beer, a soda. Second, i was gonna put this in the original post, but decided to wait till you responded.

Ok heres the way i see it. Birch Beer is a very good tasteing drink. But no one has heard of it becuase of Capitalism. So if the State ran all the Soda Production, Everyone could have this wonderfull drink, or not if u didn't like it.

Don't lie!
In soviet times there wasn't so many sodas available! Especially in those plastic bottles as in your picture!
In shops there were available only 1-5(max) different sorts of soda - and in 0,33 or 0,5 litre glass bottles like Limonnii (Lemon), Djuzhess (Pear), Tarhun (Estragon or Tarragon), Buratino, Sayani and in very rear occasions Baykal (so-called Soviet Coke). In 1980-ies due to Moscow olympics there were available Pepsi and orange Fanta made by capitalist licenses. These two last ones were very rear and were available only in selected places and not for everyone. One funny story about olympics in Moscow - in olympic village there were Fanta automats (free soda booth) in lobby of hotel for sportmen. After some one week of opening the Olympics the administrator of the hotel noticed that this Fanta booth became empty in every morning. He checked it in the evening - all seemed OK, but in morning - empty again! Wazzap? After few days clarified the cleaning woman was empting all the Fanta to her cleaning bucket and was carring it to home.

I had a mango gazirovka though, and I am not lying.

Soviet soda had no corn syrup and that shit that is bad for your body.

COCA COLA, PEPSI IS CHEAP JUNK THAT TASTES THE SAME!!

THat story is Capitalist bourgeois, and i will not tolerate it.

I LOVE THE USSR AND IT WAS THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

I was wrong - You're right - there were made more sodas in your beloved USSR.
Look at the first (upper) horizontal row of text at the label.
