Coke or Pepsi

Who's products do you prefer?

Coke Zero and Jim Beam is the best

I love a Pepsi in a tall glass of ice. Coke, not so much. To me, Pepsi seems more refreshing when I'm parched.

Coca-Cola
Lot of family history with the Candlers.

One example:
As a child my mother's best friend was Nancy Candler (Asa Candler's granddaughter) and was kidnapped because she was mistaken for Nancy.
The kidnappers held her for three days and finally let her go after they realized they had the wrong kid.

Pepsi tastes chemically to me.

I used to drink Coke, but I drink soda so infrequently, at this point, I drink it just to remind myself why I don't drink it.

No doubt. Much better than the corn syrup. Corn syrup is one of the worst things ever invented.

The last time I had a soda was probably about a year and a half ago. I used to be a Mt Dew addict, so if I had to choose between the two brands, I'd go with Pepsi.

I love Coke but I only have one or two cans a month. I used to be addicted to it in university but the amount of sugar in it is a killer.

Never liked Pepsi.

The funny thing is, I'm sucking down limeade. Has about as much nastyness as those two, but it doesn't have the syrup taste to it.

Mello Yellow when I can find it. Only two places that I know have locally: one Subway location and the Incredible Pizza.

BTW, Dr. Pepper is neither a Coke or Pepsi product, even though both bottle/distribute. Here in NE OK, Dr. Pepper is part of the Pepsi line-up. On the road to TN/NC, I discovered that it was distributed by Coke.

EDIT to add: Also just about anything that my brother-in-law cares to share. He owns a liquor store.

Quoth Wikipedia:

Quote:
Manufacturer: Dr Pepper Snapple Group (formerly Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages) (previously Dr Pepper/Seven Up)/The Coca-Cola Company (Europe only)
Quote:
Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. (formerly Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages) is an American soft beverages drink company, which was spun off from Britain's Cadbury Schweppes, on 2 May 2008, with trading in its shares starting on 7 May 2008. Cadbury Schweppes plc became Cadbury plc on 2 May 2008.
...so it's no surprise that no one knows who makes it.

Diet Pepsi, I don't like the taste of normal Pepsi or Coke.

Jones soda, if available.

If these are the choices then I choose Pepsi! I, however, like Dr. Pepper. I like it in a glass bottle and made with cane sugar. Hell, I pay more but good soda in a glass bottle without corn syrup is well worth it!
