Either one, or the other. No extraneous choices, please- if you don’t like either one, move on.
I love Coca Cola. I used to drink a 2-liter every couple of days plus a can or so every day. I stopped drinking it a few months ago, except for maybe a can every couple of weeks, and have lost almost 20 pounds, so yay me. Coke tastes good- only the original will do, though- never diet for me. Yuck.
Pepsi is, in my opinion, evil. I’d rather drink Tucson tap water than Pepsi, and that’s saying something. That stuff’s just nasty.
Although, strictly speaking, I’ve only drunk diet drinks for many years now. But, always Coke over Pepsi, always dietCoke or Coke Zero over Diet Pepsi, always any product made by Coca-Cola over any product made by Pepsi. (Dr. Pepper being a tasty outlier, but distributed by Coca-Cola any place I’ve lived.) Can’t STAND Pepsi or Pepsi products.
When I drank sugared sodas, always coke. I preferred the more “cinnamony”, robust flavor. But when I went to diet sodas, I found that A.) Diet Coke tasted nothing like regular coke ( in that very narrow universe all colas inhabit ) and was kinda foul and also that b) I craved the relatively greater sweetness of Diet Pepsi.
With the emergence of Coke Zero, I’m back on the coke wagon.
I’m not gonna claim Pepsi is DISGUUUUUSTING and I LUUUURVVVE Coke, because ultimately they’re not that different, but, as someone else said, in that narrow universe all colas inhabit, Coke is a hell of a lot better. It’s got a sharper, more complex taste, and seems to me to have more carbonation.
I hardly ever drink soda, but once in a while we’ll pick up a couple of bottles of Mexican Coke from the ethnic foods aisle at the grocery store. Made with sugar instead of corn syrup and tastes like it did back in the day.
I have never willingly ingested a Pepsi product, but I won’t drink that newfangled “Classic Coke” either.
