Coca-Cola & Pepsi

I was once asked which of the two I prefer. When answered, I didn't know best how to describe why I prefer one over the other. Can anyone here help me articulate this?

by CCreply 5309/09/2013

Pepsi is sweeter. That's the main difference.

by CCreply 109/03/2013

Poison or poison? Decisions, decisions!

by CCreply 209/03/2013

Coke is sweeter.

Pepsi is bubblier, and sort of spicier.

by CCreply 309/03/2013

diet pepsi is sweeter and tastes better than diet coke. when I drink regular pepsi or coke I don't taste much of a difference between them and the diet. I have a pepsi addiction. If I spiked the pepsi with rum I'd be an alcoholic by now. That's how much soda I drink.

by CCreply 409/04/2013

I haven't had a soda in two months. I feel great.

by CCreply 509/04/2013

Pepsi makes the best douche.

by CCreply 609/04/2013

I don't know if I've had either since I was a teenager.

If someone gave you a blind taste test, would you be able to tell the difference?

Also, if anyones bored go read the wikipedia articles for Cola Wars, or New Coke. The introduction of New Coke apparently caused a culutral crisis in America. What a weird little world the 1980's were.

See, I think the opposite is true.

by CCreply 809/04/2013

I agree with R8.

Pepsi is sweeter with a somewhat flat, musty flavor.

Coke contains a more complex blend of flavors with prominent spice undertones.

by CCreply 909/04/2013

It's a question I agonise over on a regular basis.

by CCreply 1009/04/2013

As a practicing alcoholic, I am not drawn to sody pop. But my father made a fortune in Coca Cola stock and sold at the right time before his untimely demise. As an heiress, I would say that I prefer Coca Cola.

by CCreply 1109/04/2013

Pepsi is too sweet. Years ago there was a third brand that I preferred to both Coke and Pepsi. RC cola was the best. If they still make it, popular it might not be.

The secret ingredient to the Coca Cola recipe: Soylent Green.

by CCreply 1409/04/2013

It's PEPSI, you bitches!!!!!

by CCreply 1509/04/2013

Pepsi is more acidic/citrusy. Coke has a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg.

by CCreply 1609/04/2013

They are both basically sugar-water with brown food coloring. Any other tastes, let alone any distinctions between them, are wholly trivial and incidental.

by CCreply 1709/04/2013

My guess is that you frequently have problems articulating things. Take a tip from R13.

by CCreply 1809/04/2013

Diet Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola is in reality fizzy ditchwater.

by CCreply 1909/04/2013

Pepsi is for bottoms

Coke is for tops

by CCreply 2009/04/2013

Pepsi is disgusting!!!

Mostly agree with R9.

Diet Coke (my poison) has a clean, refreshing effervescence and no aftertaste.

Diet Pepsi is sweeter, flatter, has the aftertaste of an artificial sweetener but with a somewhat musty and faintly anise flavor (which can only be brushed away.)

One's an actress, the other a movie star.

by CCreply 2309/04/2013

Coke would be green if they didn't add the brown coloring.

by CCreply 2409/04/2013

It depends on the country you're in. I like the flavor of the Coke they sell in Germany and Austria. I don't drink Coke in the U.S.

It's the same with baked goods. I enjoy them in most of Europe; in the U.S., they're too sweet.

by CCreply 2509/04/2013

The "spice" element in Coke is very pronounced in Coke Zero. If they could soften it just a bit Coke Zero would be perfect.

by CCreply 2609/04/2013

Pepsi tastes flat to me. Like a bottle of Coke that's sat open all day.

by CCreply 2709/04/2013

"Coke contains a more complex blend of flavors with prominent spice undertones."

Who the fuck do you think you are, trash frau/phag, a wine taster in Sonoma?

God, you trash hogs are hilarious.

Oh, and you're all fat from drinking this swill.

by CCreply 2809/04/2013

I'll stick with my Tab.

by CCreply 2909/04/2013

Thank you R23; that is hilarious. Here in Texas, you can get "Mexican" Coca-Cola, which has sugar instead of HFCS. Don't really drink sodas, but it's good. Dublin Dr. Pepper & Pepsi Throwback also use sugar. It tastes so much better.

by CCreply 3009/04/2013

R28 is proof that right-wing cunts prefer Pepsi.

by CCreply 3109/08/2013

I gave up drinking soda for a year (Coke Zero is like mother's milk to me)-I felt absolutely no different.

by CCreply 3209/08/2013

I agree with the R16. The best tasting Pepsi is what is sometimes called Passover Pepsi. In contains surgar instead of corn syrup. Unfortunately I can only get it around Jewish holidays.

by CCreply 3309/08/2013

A lot of supermarkets carry the Mexican coke in glass bottles now.

by CCreply 3409/08/2013

Rock and Roller Cola Wars, I can't take it anymore!

by CCreply 3509/08/2013

Costco stores in Silicon Valley carry the Mexican Coke.

by CCreply 3609/08/2013

The "Pep" in Pepsi is the same "Pep" in Pepto Bismol. Syrup of pepsin. Pepsin was originally a stomach calmative.

When "New" Coke came out, it included pepsin. Now you know the rest of the story...

by CCreply 3709/08/2013

Pepsi is a damn Yankee drink!

by CCreply 3809/08/2013

It depends on what I am eating with it.

by CCreply 3909/08/2013

It depends what part of the country you're in. I grew up in the Midwest, and prefer Pepsi over Coke (much sweeter) there. However, in NYC, Pepsi tastes more like Coke did in the MidWest, so if I had to, I'd drink Coke (I never liked diet drinks and gave soda up a few years ago).

But I prefer RC to both of them.

by CCreply 4009/08/2013

Coca Cola all the way for me. Especially a well made fountain Coke. (McDonald's cokes are the BEST) I know they're horrible for you, but once in a while a Coke classic with ice hits the spot and I love the tingly after burn.

Pepsi has a weird chemical aftertaste after every sip. I also get a roaring headache every time I have Pepsi.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

by CCreply 4109/08/2013

Back in the day Coke had real cola syrup in it. It was helpful if you were nauseous. Ginger Ale had real ginger in it, also helpful for the stomach. Today they are both HFCS flavored water. Pepsi is no better.

Even Mexican or Passover Coke isn't real coke. Yes it has real sugar like the old days but it doesn't have real cola.

by CCreply 4209/08/2013

Both of the flavors are a fantasia of citrus, vanilla, and cinnamon.

In Pepsi the citrus is primarily lemon, while in Coke it is predominantly orange.

by CCreply 4309/08/2013

Who the fuck cares?

by CCreply 4409/08/2013

ah, but back when it had cocaine in it...

Those were the days!

by CCreply 4509/08/2013

I think I prefer Coke's image and brand, so Coke for me. That said, I haven't drunk either for years (yay).

by CCreply 4609/08/2013

R43, I was told by my cookery teacher at school that a kid found a lump of something in his Coke. They gave it to one of the biology teachers to look at under a microscope. She said that it was orange. Orange seems to be (one of?) Coke's secret ingredients.

by CCreply 4709/09/2013

I try not to drink either, but I prefer Pepsi, which I grew up with. My mother always described it as being "zingier" than Coke. I tend to agree and find Coke too sweet and flat.

by CCreply 4809/09/2013

[quote]The best tasting Pepsi is what is sometimes called Passover Pepsi. In contains surgar instead of corn syrup. Unfortunately I can only get it around Jewish holidays.

Try Throwback Pepsi. It has sugar instead of hfcs. It's available all year.

by CCreply 4909/09/2013

Coke has a ginger taste. I like ginger, but not in soda

by CCreply 5009/09/2013

"Pepsi makes the best douche."

You may laugh but women did this. You can see Cynthia Ettinger do it in an episode of Carnivale.

by CCreply 5109/09/2013

I prefer Mr. Pibb
