In my neck of the woods ( NW Tennessee, 30 years ago) a proper suicide had to have every drink available in the machine. The risk of weird flavors is why it had a sense of danger, and that name.

And a splash of lemon or lime juice is delicious in a Coca-Cola or a tea, sweet or unsweet.

Such a beer does not exist, sir. I think you must have dreamed it.

Oh. Well, then just give me a six-pack and a couple of bags of Skittles
Gotta try that sometime. I think I have some Yuengling downstairs. I just need to get me some Skittles.

That's still one of my simpler joys in life. There's a 7-11 near our house that sells 99c Humungo-Gulps.

"ON SALE! 64oz of 'Sparkling' Beverage for well, a little over a buck (with tax)"...

though it's always on sale...
