Taste is a regional thing: The foods enjoyed by natives of one country may seem strange and unappealing to people accustomed to other types of cuisine. Some regions use rice as their staple starch, others use pasta, others use the potato and so on. Americans love their beef, the Chinese love pork. In some places, it is as common to drink milk mixed with blood as it is to consume milk mixed with chocolate syrup. No one can say a given flavor of food or drink is objectively better or worse than any other, they can merely say it is more or less appealing to them based on their preferences. Unless the drink in question is one of these awful concoctions, that is. These sodas are crimes against nature.
