I rarely drink soda, but if I go for one, it's gonna be Coke over Pepsi.

I go through phases - at the moment I like Pepsi *way* more than coke. A few months ago it was the other way round.

As long as no-one says they taste the same, I'm sure we'll all get along fine....

Nothing like a cold coke after a long ride. That burning sensation is always nice

They taste the same.

Actually with a double shot of rye or rum, I really can't tell the difference. Especially after several.

I really do not like sodas.. Drink way to many at work. When it is hot. Its easy to take whatever the vending machine has to offer. Much prefer I was always preparred and had juices at work.. I love pineapple juice. To me soda cool you down, but nutrition wise they are useless and I am suspect about how healty they are with all that acid.
Between coke/pepsi, I always prefer diet coke. Like the fizz of coke..Non diet coke. Too dam sweet,what 16 teaspoons of sugar? Would not drink one if given to me without charge.

The "bite" is caused by phosphoric acid, the main component in chemical rust removers. A lot of soft drinks & bottled/canned teas, etc., contain it, check the ingredients list on the container.

Ingestion of phosphoric acid leaches calcium from the bones, heavy/frequent use leading to osteoporosis.

Diet Pepsi! Have to have one as soon as I get to work, before I even login to my PC. At home, sparkling fruit-flavored water or Crystal Light fruit punch.
