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?
Coca-Cola & Pepsi

Pepsi is sweeter. That's the main difference.

Coke is sweeter.
Pepsi is bubblier, and sort of spicier.
|by CC||reply 3||09/03/2013|
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.

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

Pepsi makes the best douche.
|by CC||reply 6||09/04/2013|
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 CC||reply 8||09/04/2013|
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.

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

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 CC||reply 11||09/04/2013|
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.

Uninstall the existing program. Go to Mccaffee and download the tool from them that COMPLETELY UNINSTALLS IT, AND RELOAD PROGRAM. DON'T FORGET THAT SPECIAL TOOL FROM MCGAFFEE THAT COMPLETELY ERASES THE PROGRAM OR YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS;

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

Pepsi is more acidic/citrusy. Coke has a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg.
|by CC||reply 16||09/04/2013|
They are both basically sugar-water with brown food coloring. Any other tastes, let alone any distinctions between them, are wholly trivial and incidental.

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

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

Coke is for tops

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.

Coke would be green if they didn't add the brown coloring.
|by CC||reply 24||09/04/2013|
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 CC||reply 25||09/04/2013|
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 CC||reply 26||09/04/2013|
Pepsi tastes flat to me. Like a bottle of Coke that's sat open all day.

"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.

I'll stick with my Tab.

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 CC||reply 30||09/04/2013|
R28 is proof that right-wing cunts prefer Pepsi.
|by CC||reply 31||09/08/2013|
I gave up drinking soda for a year (Coke Zero is like mother's milk to me)-I felt absolutely no different.
|by CC||reply 32||09/08/2013|
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 CC||reply 33||09/08/2013|
A lot of supermarkets carry the Mexican coke in glass bottles now.

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

Costco stores in Silicon Valley carry the Mexican Coke.

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...

Pepsi is a damn Yankee drink!

It depends on what I am eating with it.
|by CC||reply 39||09/08/2013|
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 CC||reply 40||09/08/2013|
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 CC||reply 41||09/08/2013|
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 CC||reply 42||09/08/2013|
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.

Who the fuck cares?

ah, but back when it had cocaine in it...
Those were the days!

I think I prefer Coke's image and brand, so Coke for me. That said, I haven't drunk either for years (yay).
|by CC||reply 46||09/08/2013|
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 CC||reply 47||09/09/2013|
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.

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

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

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