Coke or Pepsi?

The rivalry between soft drink manufacturers PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company—epitomized by a series of marketing campaigns in the 1980s and 1990s—is simply known as the Cola Wars. In their ongoing battle for supremacy in the soft drink market, the two companies have employed several different tactics, including commercials featuring pop stars, programs to reward loyal customers with free merchandise, and even revisions of their signature products, including what controversial changes?

Coke, no contest. Pepsi is too sweet, formulated for childish tastes.

Coke. I always think Pepsi taste like cleaning stuff. I hate that some restaurants can't serve Coke because they are in contract with Pepsi.

Neither, I love diet 7-up for thirst, or good ole' water. At heart, I'm a coffee and green tea guy.

As for taste, I prefer Diet Coke. Pepsi products have a horrible, cloyingly sweet taste and aftertaste.

For many years, I drank Diet Coke -- sometimes up to five or six cans a day. But I became wary of those artificial sweeteners, especially aspartame. I think that aspartame is a lot more unhealthy for us than we are lead to believe. So I stopped drinking Diet Coke and other soda products about two years ago. Now I drink lots of water, all sorts of tea, and coffee. (I still need the caffeine!) Anxious

I agree with those who said neither. They are both way too sweet for me.

I LOVE diet Pepsi. Of course, as a diabetic, diet is my only choice. I've taken many Pepsi challenges and have always picked Pepsi. Don't know why. I drink a lot of Diet Coke though because I find most restaurants carry Diet Coke instead of Diet Pepsi. I know, artificial sweeteners are scary. But as a diabetic, sugar is more of a poison to me. I'm picking my battles. I am not much of a water drinker, though I try. So Diet Pepsi it is.

I prefer Pepsi, but truthfully, I almost never drink soda, so I'm not too much of an advocate either way.

Interestingly, I used to have a teacher in junior high who had lost his sense of taste and smell as the result of an accident he was involved in. However, he said the carbonation of Coke was so much superior to any other beverage that it was the only drink he could enjoy on a qualitative level. He quickly became an avid collector of Coke brand junk of all kinds.

In retrospect, it's hard to believe that the original Coke formula called for cocaine.

If I'm drinking real soft drinks, I prefer Pepsi, unless it's a fountain drink. Fountain Coke is second to none.

I rarely drink soft drinks however, and when I do, it normally runs to Diet 7-Up (I can't drink the dark diet drinks at all). I'd probably keel over on a real syrup or sugar soft drink. *snickers*

I would only say that although I find pepsi less satisfying, both are nothing but something like an addiction. If you analyze the whole thing there is no real taste really.Try any kind of mineral or naturally sparkling water with a slice of lemon, lime or some spearmint leaves added to it. Taste and pleasure is there, believe it or not.

Sorry, nastasia. I cannot stomach mineral or naturally sparking water. When I moved to Ontario from California, I learned the difference between pop and soda. In California, soda pop is soda. In Ontario soda pop is pop. So I was brought mineral water when I asked for soda. I didn't make that mistake again. I wish I didn't like diet Pepsi, but I do. Wish I liked water more, but I don't.
