    We did the Pepsi challenge at school. I picked Pepsi, which is good because I was a die-hard Pepsi person and didnt want to eat my words:cool: Anyone else with me or are you for Coke?

    Coke all the way! Although I have grudgingly gave up soda for one whole year, in honor of a friend's nephew who is deployed to Afghanistan. She gave up candy, me soda. I am hating it, and it's not getting any easier. I wonder if there's a coke hiding in the back of the fridge...

    For me, it is and has always been COKE!! I wonder if it's a regional thing? Growing up in the south Coke was big. My new obsession is Coke Zero.

    COKE!

    I think that Pepsi has a strange medicinal taste.

    Pepsi One. All but 2 of our staff are Diet Pepsi/pepsi One drinkers. It is nice when you forget to replenish your supply - there is always someone to turn to!

    Coke all the way! I have literally walked out of restaurants when I found out they served only Pepsi products. I think pepsi is the most awful stuff ever.

    You're exactly like me and my husband!

    We don't go to restaurants that serve Pepsi unless they have something REALLY amazing that we can't get anywhere else.

    I don't even think that we've gone to KFC or Taco Bell in at least 6 years because they serve Pepsi. I'm sure we're not really missing out on anything there....

    I can't drink either one unless I cut it 50/50 with plain soda water. That's the case for nearly every soda or juice they sell whether it's sugar free or not.

    But to answer the question, I don't really care which one unless it's diet. They both give me heartburn and make me sick unless I add some Jamisons or Bushmills. But I generally consider that to be a waste of good whiskey.

    As for sugarfree, both diet Pepsi and diet Coke cause me to have a gag reflex. But the gag reflex is less severe with diet Pepsi.

    My favorite soda is diet Squirt.

    And all this coming from a guy who really doesn't like to drink water.

    Diet Mt. Dew! I'm not a big coke or pepsi fan. I like the odd flavors... Dr. Pepper, Sunkist, Grapico, etc. LOL

    Coke, although I could count on one hand the number of times in a year I drink pop.

    They're both icky, in all their manifestations.

    Tea for me: hot in the winter, iced in the summer, no sugar, no lemon, no garbage.

    coke, although my official answer is going to be neither - I haven't had one in awhile and I plan to keep it that way.

    Coke (as long as it's diet or Coke Zero), although I'm one of those rare ones who doesn't mind drinking Pepsi.

    I do a really good job of giving it up for long stretches, then give in and buy a couple packs.

    I don't care. Coke, Pepsi, RC, store-brand stuff . . . it's all fine by me. I don't even care if it's regular or diet. I buy/drink whatever is on sale. I don't drink a lot of it, maybe one per day, and DH doesn't drink it at all.

    Twice as much for your nickel, too.
    Pepsi cola is the one for you,....."

    Coke if I'm having soda, though I usually get iced tea when we eat out. Actually, right now I'm sipping a Coke Zero. I was just in the mood for one.

    Coke...specifically caffeine free diet coke.

    But I crave a diet big red every so often.

    Coke! But I usually drink iced tea. Lately my students have developed a bizarre obsession with Delaware Punch, so I've been drinking some of that.

    I absolutely never drink coke, but when I did once upon a time it was not a dark one...I hated them all! Coke, Pepsi, RC...ugh! I could tolerate a Diet Dr. Pepper, but it wasn't something I enjoyed. I liked several of the lighter-colored ones, though.

    Coke is my preference. But I will drink any soda (as long as it is NOT diet), including Pepsi. I usually buy what's cheapest at the time.

    I only drink diet soda and I think diet pepsi AND diet coke taste horrible. I will only drink Coke Zero or Pepsi Max.
