Pepsi = BOO

I bought Pepsi for the first time in MONTHS today.

I drank maybe 1/4 of it before tossing it. It tastes horrible now, though I used to love the stuff before. I can tolerate SprITe and Sierra Mist (barely).

Man, dieting is a weird force.

I took the pepsi challenge once.
let me tell you, pepsi is disgusting, but the prize was worth is, whatever it was.

IMO coke anything isn't that great anyways, it's all about the ginger ale

For me, it depends on what I'm having it with. By itself it's not too great, but with certain foods it's awesome.

Coke also doesn't taste that good. Unless you add a bit of Sprite... Then it's awesome.

mix the frutopia with sprite, at fast food restaurants with fountains, it's pretty good.

That new SpritZero and CokeZero is pretty good, and doesn't taste like rotten gorilla assmeat like diet drinks usually do. I drink the SpriteZero cuz I stays away from the caffeine cuz I am prone to the insomnia.

If you're ever down in Mexico, or even Central America, try a bottle of Coke made there. Its made with cane sugar (not corn syrup like here in the USA) and tastes WWAAAYYYY better! Some stores near the USA/Mexico border in Calif & Texas also sell Mexican-made Coke; a little pricier, but still worth the extra cents for a taste of good cola.

Whiskey and Ginger Ale. That's my favorite.

My kids love a half/half of lemonade and sprite.

Dude, you speak the truth. I bought a bottle in the Dominican Republic, and it's SO much better!

Pepsi is good for degreasing engines and that's about it.

Diet Coke is the bomb!

I never knew that. My local grocer started carrying the glass bottled Coke with Spanish script about a year ago and when I finally broke down and bought one, I couldn't quite pick out why it tasted better than the regular coke. My wife didn't believe me when I said it tastes better.
