 I'll go coke once in a while (let's say once in a week!). Coke and Pepsi have completely different flavors. But Coke is only the next best thing to... Corn Shake!!! (pound for pound, corn is more powerful than dynamite!)

 In the midwest we just call it playing old Soda!!! And we have no annoying accents.

Either works for me as long as you don't forget the Rum, and Lime

Wow great question!

A girl I was seeing once asked me if I was a Coke person or a Pepsi person. The question shocked and horrified me. Both drinks are essentially the same: water, lots of sugar, a bit of flavour, no micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals)  and a huge brand name.

I didn't rant then but I will now:

Why in the frak would I ever want to vote with my money to support these companies? They produce drinks that don't do a body good. Foods or drinks like these gradually harm our bodies. Ask anybody who knows about nutrition, or look it up yourself.

Giving my money over to their producers is a double whammy. I get a bit poorer, a pop company gets a bit richer. Multiply this pattern by billions of consumers and you have an uncomfortable situation.  My money would make them more powerful lobbyists who can influence national policy on nutrition and health as well as feed their advertising budget to brainwash me some more.

How about some healthy grape juice, anyone?

Oh crap Seagram purchased the Dole global juice business in 1995. PepsiCo acquired Tropicana, including the Dole juice business, in August 1998. In fact, when I studied marketing, we looked at how Pepsi couldn't win the cola wars so they diversified their portfolio to stay in business. Pepsi got into the food business and bought lots of companies like The Quaker Oats Company, including Gatorade, in 2001. Is this all a bad thing? Maybe, it's certainly worth thinking about.

So to your question "What pop do you like more coke or pepsi?"  I guess my answer is a cold shiver. 

Water is pretty good. Some of it is sold by the Coke company. And bottled water is another rant for another day. Or you can research it yourself.

Keep on thinking :)

I really like coke but it's better for me to just drink water. Water makes my body cleaner that soft drinks.

True but every ones and while I got to have a coke.

I am from the south, coke to us means everything, sprite, pepsi, dr.pepper, etc.

anything carbonated in the south is called a coke, even sprite

"what do you want to drink?"
"a coke"
"what kind?"
"dr pepper"

Thats cool up here in the north we call it pop.

Sprite is actually made BY Coca cola company :-) 
 

A couldn't tell you how many times I've had that EXACT conversation!

Neither, in fact, I absolutely hate all types of soft drinks!

I only drink water, however, I do have tea and hot chocolate every once in a while..

Carters® Root Beer.

As far as I know, it's only availible in the UK, but it tastes WAAAAAYYY better than A&W, or Barqs or MUG!

Diet coke! Pepsi and diet pepsi are way to carbonated which makes them kinda spicy.

To be perfectly honest??   A  good REAL Ginger drink (like non-alcoholic ginger beer with capsicum).    Now THERE'S a drink.

Seconded!  Proper Jamaican ginger beer is FANTASTIC.  It burns on the way down but settles a tummy - so opposite what you'd expect!

The cheap stuff tastes like soap, but the good stuff is heaven.

Yes indeed.   And studies have now shown that it (capsicum) helps fight against certain types of stomach ulcers that are virally induced.
 

Wanna know a secret?  I've never had a ginger flavored drink! 

Well, those "ginger ales" that list no ginger in them (except artificial flavoring) aren't much more then funny tasting sugar water.  Real ginger has ist' own little bite to it in the mouth, but helps calm an irritated stomach, if you have one.  However,  YMMV
 
Now, if you don't like capsicum  (the alkaline that makes hot peppers hot) then get the kind without....it is just as good tasting IMHO.
 

I like it when my drinks are a little higher on the Scoville scale.

Yeah, I prefer my ginger drinks with the fire and bite combined :-) 

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I really can't tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi. I mean if I have them side by side I can quite easily taste the difference. However if i go to a restaurant and order a Coke. I won't know if they've given me Coke or Pepsi and frankly i don't care.

P.S. I love cherry Coke

Fountain pop/soda is boourns!  It's never brix-ed right (ratio of water to syrup), and the carbonation is spotty.  Real coke or pepsi goes through a huge quality control battery of tests to make sure it is EXACTLY the same in EVERY bottle EVERY time...fountain is a crapshoot.

Co, Co, Co, Co, Cola!

 The answer will have to be Pepsi, 100%.

I can't stop drinking Slurm...

L

COke!!!!!

If you don't have Coke, then tea, Dr. Pepper, Sprite, Ginger Ale, ginger beer, or black coffee would be just fine.

I'd rather drink  a gallon of stagnant goats milk with dead tadpoles, than to have a sip of Pepsi!!!

Black coffee, then Cherry Coke, then Coke, then Pepsi.

LOL - you should hear the enormous belches #2 Son can come out with after just a few mouthfuls of anything fizzy...

Or, maybe you shouldn't...

XD

Ah, the love of a father - good for you and all, but as for me, may I never fondly talk about a son and how he burps.  :P :D

He calls them "grandad burps", after the postprandial eructations one Christmas...

Neither, I stopped a while back due to the silly ingredients in cola that really don't need to be there. Colouring was one of these, sugar was second but I still drink lemonade every now and then.

Other than that, water.

 i have to say coke 100% of the way.
