Of the two, so Pepsi, so much. Diet. The tingly action on the throat is awesome.

Nowadays, though, I drink Diet Rite cola, which uses Splenda rather than aspartame and has no caffeine and no sodium. It is sort of reminiscent of old-fashioned fountain sodas.

I wouldn’t like to say which one is “better” since it’s a relative thing, but I prefer Coke.

Either. It really doesn’t make a difference to me. Do they still sell RC? That soda is sooo sugary.

marinelife's avatar

@Allie Yes, they do sell RC.

Marina: Wow, I need to find some of that. Thanks!

coke, pepsi is much to carbonated I can hardly taste the cola because my nose and eyes are affected so bad by the bubbles

Allie's avatar

Is it just me or does Pepsi have more bubbles than Coca-Cola?

When I want the fizz, I go for Diet Pepsi. When, I want the taste, I go for Diet Coke or Coke Zero. If I had to pick one and stick with it, I would pick Coke Zero.

Ever since I switched to diet, I can’t really drink regular soda anymore. It seems too sweet.

Pepsi over Classic Coke. New Coke over Pepsi. Jolt Cola over New Coke. Dr. Pepper over everything.

Coke – but real Coke made with cane sugar, not the ‘80s high-fructose corn syrup version.

marinelife's avatar

@PupnTaco Ahhh, the joys of true Coke bottled in Georgia in my youth. So different from what it is today.

Costco sells the real thing – Coke made in Mexico. :)

Coke, but I’m beginning to like Coke Zero more. Pepsi tastes like syrup to me.

I have a feeling this is going to end up discussing drugs.

marinelife's avatar

@PupnTaco But does it give you the runs? :)

Always Coca-Cola

After drinking Diet Coke from the time it was released, I switched to Coke Zero a couple of years ago. But lately I’ve been drinking more ginger ale.

I’m with AstroChuck…Dr. Pepper all the way (although that Coke that comes in through Mexico sounds intriguing…now, where’s my Costco card?)

soda is gross, but when I have to make the choice, definitely coca cola. It has more of a world culture of coke drinkers surrounding it, it’s classic. It tastes better.

iJimmy's avatar

I love Coke. But Diet Coke makes me hungry. When I need a diet soda it has to be Pepsi of Dr. Pepper.

susanc's avatar

It amazes me that people like Coke. I used to live on Pepsi – maybe 8 a day,
plus salad. I can’t handle the caffeine any more.
I’d like Pepsi to make something with plenty of sugar and no caffeine.

diet pepsi max!

peedub's avatar

Neither, yuck!

I’ve always been a root beer weirdo. Now I’m just a beerdo.

Prefer still drinks, but if it has to be, then Pepsi, it just feels less like a punch on the nose.

I dont drink much soda at all, I prefer Coke to Pepsi, but now I mostly drink water. When I do want a soda though, I go for Boylans “The Natural Kind” Creme Soda & Boylans Creamy Red Birch Beer ! I also dig Virgil’s Root Beer.

scamp's avatar

@smart1979 I love Birch Beer! I thought it was only in New Jersey and Pennslyvania. I never heard of it before moving to New Jersey.

Babo's avatar

Pepsi! Free music downloads, woo hoo!!!

smart1979's avatar

scamp – brch beer is good stuff – you gotta try Boylan’s Creamy Red if you haven’t yet :)

ezraglenn's avatar

Virgil’s RB is epic.

scamp's avatar

smart1979 I’ll try it soon. I like cream soda too.
