Wow golly, there's nothing quite like a big 44 oz. waxed-paper cup of putrifying flesh over ice!

Coke. Pepsi sucks. Diet anything sucks more.

Coke. Definately Coke. (But Lemon Twist Pepsi over that cough medicine that passes for lemon Coke.)

Pepsi is definatly sweeter, and that is nice sometimes(the new pepsi twist is surprisingly NOT terrible....not great...but not what I was expecting)

I prefer coke, cause it reminds me of a pizza place I used to always eat at, they had great pizza and I used to always get Coke when I ate that pizza, and whenever we ordered it we'd get a litre and Now I always associate teh two tastes(except when the coke is REALLY REALLY REALLY cold)

I want pizza now


but actually I don't drink either, I drink perrier, in copius amounts

I don't know what they are in the US, but in France the TV pub for Orangina are very funny.

I prefer coke, rather than Pepsi, but i must admit that i just try pepsi one time. I am also found of Orangina, the normal or the red one.

I think Pepsi sold off the restaurants a few years ago. As for Coke or Pepsi? I don't know. I like them both about the same. They don't taste the same. Depends on my mood I guess and whether or not Dr. Pepper is available instead. BTW, isn't "Pepsi" just about the stupidest name a product could have?

Coke...in a can. The plastic bottled cokes don't have just quite the same fizz to them. 2 Litre bottled coke is good, not as good as canned though.

Pepsi is teh sux0rs. That stuff tastes like over-sweetened diluted cough syrup left in a cupboard too long.

It's strange that there are a few complaining Pepsi is too sweet. In my experience and everyone I talk to Coke is definitely the sweeter of the 2... by far
post #60 of 74
I think sweetness is one of those things that is too vaguely defined to reach a definate agreement on.

They may be about the same sweetness, but Coke surrounds the sweetness with some fizz...Pepsi just sort of dies into a flat sort of state and leaves a nasty taste.

People, come on.

Coke is the Microsoft of the softdrink industry!
They tried to wipe Pepsi out by making Coke more Pepsi-like with their New Coke because they knew pepsi actually has a better taste.
Therefore I'm surprised more mac users don't like pepsi.

But for you masochists out there, Coke does hurt more going down! <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Yeah, but Pepsi has Britney Spears whoring it out; and that is most definitely not a good thing.

pepsi is sweeter than coke. that's why pepsi always wins in taste tests, and always will.

in a taste test, people will always focus on the food's main attribute. in this case sweetnes. whichever is the most of the main attribute wins.

this is because they are so similar that people can hardly tell them apart, and they have to key in on something.

so the saltier of two foods will always win in a salty food taste test etc.

that's why coke came out w/new coke. it even beat reg. coke in all of their internal taste tests, since it was sweeter.

common marketing propaganda. (pepsi wins in taste tests!!!)

I don't understand how people couldn't tell them apart in a taste test. They are easily definable to me.

Britney Spears and Taco Bell are the good things that Pepsi has. I love Taco Bell but it sucks they only offer Pepsi products. Burger King on the other hand.

Oh, and for anyone who drinks that $2 bottled water crap, Evian spelled backwards is NAIVE ! <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Coca-Cola is just so wholesome too. The polar bears ad is just too cute.

You cannot directly comapare Coke to Pepsi, did you now know that the sugar in pepsi gives more stimulus per mouthful even though Coke has a larger sugar content. Then there is the delivery method. Coke cans have a smaller opening then Pepsi, so even though they both have an equal theoretical output, Pepsi does not have such a bottleneck meaning that you can get more Pepsi into your gob per second than coke. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Well, it sounds like it's decided then.

The final response to the question this thread has put before us is as follows:

Coke or Pepsi?

Pepsi.

Everyone who disagrees is now officially wrong.

I drink PERRIER! its fizzy, tasty, and it won't destroy my teeth
but when I DO drink soda, Its usually Soem form of root beer(love root beer) Or whatever the fast food joint has(be it pepsi or coke) pepsi is sweeter defiantly. and therefore I kind of prefer it, since I love sweet foods....but coke is more nostalgic, so I kind of prefer that...oh well...It can never erally be determine which one is better, its all preference anyway.

Best Cola: Coca-Cola in a 25 cl. glass bottle. Beats plastic AND can. I think it has something to do with the smoothness of the inner side of the bottle that doesn´t release the bubbles prematurely (hey on second thought that sounds dirty).

But this is based on old info. I worked for the Coca-Cola company one summer four years ago and drank at least two liters everyday and got hooked on it. Since then I have stayed away from that coffein infected stuff. Now I only drink juice and clear fluids like water, white wine, gin and vodka.

RC is good.

Coke is more likely to kick your ass with the carbonation. You get that stuff really really really cold in a can and BAM.

Nice.
