Yeah, I like Coke better than Pepsi too, just because the name is insanely cooler. ^^;

But yeah, I don't drink softdrinks that much anymore. You know, stuff about counting calories and soda being empty calories and blah blah, bad for your teeth, your skin, your liver, your pancreas, blah, blah. Parental unit (said with nothing but fondness, of course) won't let me anywhere near that stuff.

Jeez, to think that I've already seventeen, huh? >_> Parents... *grumble grumble*

Coke. I drank that first, so Pepsi always seemed to be a cheap imatation (I don't know which one copied which actually, but that's just how it seems to me) I rarely get it, but I like it, and although my parents hate the whole rotting teeth thing, they give in from time to time.

Coke was first, it came in about the 1890's and was an international superhit.

lol, thanks EBM. I asked Nate if he could get me an avatar of Brian from family guy and voila. I guess he also went ahead and downloaded a bunch of others.

Something that's interesting to know about Coke; it's actually named after what used to be a key ingredient: cocaine. It's not in there anymore, of course, but it's how it used to be made.

I prefer RC Cola, or else just plain Coke, but never Pepsi. I used to drink it when I was much younger, but I think it's kind of stopped being good for me. Anyway, Coke has the good antiques...

They find their way into my kitchen, I know this....

So I chose "Other" because given a choice between Coke and RC, I'll pick RC (or Fresca). =P
I'm not even angry... I'm being so sincere right now.

And killed me... And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.

The whole cocaine thing was part of the fact Coca Cola was originally marketed as a patent medicine, difficult to believe but its true. Back in 1885 cocaine was quite a common ingredient in medicinal products. The cocaine was never a "key ingredient" the amount used was miniscule.

I voted Coke. We only drink Pepsi if that's all a restraunt or fast food place has. But we don't buy Coke often. It's usually Dr. Pepper, which is better than Coke.

Well to be honest, I can't really taste much difference between coke and pepsi so I can't reallly say which is better. I like them both, so usually I just get whatever's cheaper :)

Pepsi. Definitely. It has a bit of a bite to it, in my opinion.. Coke is just too sickeningly sweet.

And yes, I DO remember what Pepsi tastes like lol :P I usually drink caffeine-free Pepsi.

Stupid Sierra Mist..

Anyway, I like Dr. Pepper more than either, but Pepsi's still good.

Ahh, that is the true secret both the coke and pepsi companies try to keep hidden from us pathetic consumers. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE! Of course that doesn't stop us picking sides and sinking into civil war over the matter...
