    Ahh yes, look for the yellow caps. In NJ we can get Kosher Pepsi as well.

    CET serves pepsi and M-LIFE serves coke
    I prefer coke--and just love cherry coke but not in cans as I always get a tinny taste from anything in cans

    I'm a fan of Coke Zero as I like to pretend I'm on a diet. But I'll drink Pepsi Max if that's what they have.

    But having said that, maybe it's the marketing talking but you can't beat an ice-cold 'full-fat' Coke out of a good old fashioned glass bottle :cool:

    Coke. If I order a Coke and am asked if Pepsi is okay, I reply "Is it okay if I pay in Monopoly money?"

    ...then we would have no argument on the island...Mary Ann, over Ginger - any day & twice on Sunday (if she'd let me!)

    ...as for this thread's debate, the answer is simple: Coke over Pepsi, in all categories... but Coke-Zero over Diet Coke, hands down, and Mexican Coke over HFCS Coke all day long.

    Dublin Dr. Pepper is no longer a thing in Texas...and that is kind of sad. :cry:

    Pop.

    Pepsi for me. Coke ONLY if it is fountain coke. For some reason pepsi and especially coke tastes different from a fountain vs a can or bottle.

    I rarely drink soda any more. I try for water or Powerade Zero (at Walmart for 80 cents a bottle) I found the soda was killing me with sugar, I was prediabetic and when I stopped drinking so much soda, I dropped 10 pounds in like a week.

    I’ll drink tap water before Pepsi. It tastes like dishwater to me. The taste of a Diet Coke in a foam cup from the fountain at McDonalds is what I can only assume smoking crack feels like. Now I want a soda.

    My mom buys those cans. I told her to buy 12 oz cans and throw a ~third away. Cheaper usually.
    I thought lower end Mlife properties mostly did Pepsi.

    A very dated map of coke and Pepsi among strip casinos.

    Imo, Coke > Mountain Dew > Pepsi.

    Neither but if the unsweetened tea is muddy I have been known to get a Dr Pepper.

    Occasional Coke or Diet Coke. Mostly water and wine. Never, ever any kind of Pepsi.

    Being from Atlanta, there is only one correct answer...Coke all the way.

    Quebecois!

    I usually only drink pop with Pizza and it's Pepsi. I have an occasional Green River or A&W Root Beer if I come across a place with Green River (non carbonated) or a Dog and Suds out of town. Ginger Ale is the only other pop I consider, limited to flights (I order a ginger ale and a water) or if I am really sick, sometimes it helps when I'm ready to eat/drink again.

    Stopped mixing pop and liquor in my early 20s. If the whiskey wasn't good enough to drink straight, I didn't want to drink it. That's when I stopped drinking Jack Daniels and moved up to better options.

    Regular coke, but the last 10 years only get it when drinking with Captain Morgan. Always with a lime.

    Very very rarely a coke on its own. Never diet. Don't like Pepsi.

    Diet Coke or Pepsi Zero. I am an ADDICT! Not healthy, yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah. Whatever. I figure it's better than a drug habit and I quit smoking 10 years ago so I DESERVE to have some other addiction besides gambling! :love::oops::):p

    Was a diet Pepsi fan for years, switched to caffeine-free diet Pepsi, now my fave is decaf coke zero.

    They did something to the diet pepsi recipe a few years back that made me like it a lot less
