    They have no creativity...when was the last time Pepsi released a product that wasn't a bastardizatin of Coke? And their ads do nothing but put coke down...

    ads for both companies suck (with the exception of the most recent coke one, about just road tripping and doing what you love)

    but ads aren't product. and as far as the stuff goes, Coke wins by a large margin in my book. i did the pepsi taste test back in the day, thrice in a row i picked coke.

    they gave me a keychain anyway.

    i've pretty much given up pop as a regular part of my diet, but if I do ever have one it is Coca Cola.

    Jack and COKE
    Captain and COKE
    Bourbon and COKE

    I'd like to see the look on their face when you order a drink with pepsi in it.

    PS: if you really wanna get fucked up, try mixing liquors with Red Bull. My personal fave is Seagrams 7 and red bull, but the most popular around here seems to be the Jager-bombs.

    There is a chapter in the book Blink on the old Pepsi taste challenge that forced COke to roll out the infamous New "Coke" formula that was essentially a Pepsi hybrid.

    In regards to the taste tests, this is what was found: Essentially, Pepsi has more sugar than a Coke, and it has a citrusy flavor upon first sip. Since taste tests only judge one sip, Pepsi scores better because Coke isnt as sweet, and has more of a bitter raisin like flavor. However, if one drinks two sips to a whole can of Coke, compared to Pepsi, the results are a landslide win for Coke. Thus, Coke, because it isnt as sweet, and has a subtler flavor, is much more pleasing after multiple sips, whereas Pepsi overwhelms the drinker with sweetness as they drink it.

    Also, I read a book called the History of Spice. The author claims the special ingrediants of Coke are cinnamon and nutmeg. Think about it as you taste, and you will agree.

    Back in the day, I took the Pepsi Taste Test. 3 times in a row I picked Coke! So that's my verdict. Coke is clearly better, although I will consent Pepsi's other products (Mountain Dew, etc) are better than Coke's.

    ill have to counterpoint ya there buddy. The coke logo is so much more extravagant than the PEPSI logo. Also coke has a much richer flavor in my opinion. But of all time my favorite drink is mountain dew, a product of pepsi. Pepsi tastes kind of bitter to me.
