Third go out to where people drink these drinks and ask for sips from their drinks so you can sample the different options (remember don't backwash in the drink you are sampling, that's just rude!)
Fourth, save up you pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters and don't waste your money on poor knock offs like RC Cola and the like. Remember you get what you pay for
I have a slightly different opinion, if this is your first soft drink then you may want to buy a lower cost one. That way of you find you don't like soft drinks and don't want to keep drinking them you won't have wasted alot of money.
