Old School Diet Coke
There are abundant free sodas here in the cafeteria (known by the somehow more martial term "D-FAC" for "Dining Facility"). I've probably had more diet soda in the last month in Afghanistan than in the previous five years. Maybe that's because there's no beer to be had. Or maybe it's the nostalgic cool of all the soda bottled in Afghanistan being pull-tabs rather than pop-tops or whatever you call the opening mechanism on every canned beverage sold in the U.S. in the last twenty years.
