Dr.Pepper is my drink of choice. If I have to choose between Coke and Pepsi, I take Pepsi.

I gave up soda a few years ago and only drink Diet Coke once in a great while at a restaurant.

@kritiper It is hard to find Dr. Pepper in my city. KFC only has it on tap. @janbb I order fruit juice and/or Ruby Red Grapefruit juice when at restaurants.

Mountain Dew is another choice.

@kritiper Po from Dragon warrior was told by Master Shifu said that one can live on the dew of the mountains. I wonder if It was Mountain Dew? I used to drink Mountain Dew, but gives me a headache, and a tummy ache.

I stopped drinking soda pop 40 years ago. I drink sparkling water.

It isn’t a matter of Coke and Pepsi being “not good for you”; it’s that Coke and Pepsi are bad for you.

@zenvelo 20 years ago I tried Perrier water, I didn’t know if I was drinking it right. I tossed it in the trash. Tasted like a mouthful of salty pee.

Get some fruit syrup and sparkling water.

@ragingloli Do you recommend Perrier Peach (500 ml)?

ragingloli's avatar

Just plain.

@ragingloli I have some orange flavored Mio water. Would that work?

I was raised on RC Cola with peanuts in it. After moving to DC, RC was no longer an option, so I switched to Pepsi. I was a bartender at a place that only served Pepsi & I could drink it for FREE!!! After a while, I grew burnt out on Pepsi, so I switched to Coca~Cola. When burnt out on Coke, I just cannot/could not switch back to Pepsi as it doesn’t do the same thing for me. I switch to water for as long as I can stand it & like anyone addicted to almost anything, I start back by having 1 sip of Coke…then 2…eventually 3…etc. Next thing I know I’m back on Coke full time!!! Since being in isolation, I’m doing my best to increase my water daily & wean myself off the Coke. I am doing better although I’ve NOT cut myself completely off the Coke as yet. I’ve lost 10 pounds since I’ve upped my water & lowered my soda intake. That in itself gives me encouragement to drink MORE water!!!

Coke is just OK with me. I really like Pepsi. Unfortunately I’m married to a dietitian and she won’t let me drink any soda pop. I don’t fight it because I know that she’s right.

Coke and Mt. Dew for me, because sometimes the sweetness from the Mt. Dew can be a bit much. I still drink plenty of water, but sometimes I just want something different.

Mimishu1995's avatar

No. Both of them taste the same to me. If I have to switch, I would switch between either of them and another drink.

I gave up drinking soda about ten years ago, but if I remember correctly, I preferred regular Coke over Pepsi, but I preferred Diet Pepsi over Diet Coke.

Diet Coke. If I change up maybe to Sprite or grape or orange.
