    Wont drink Pepsi and now wont touch Nike.

    Companies that go political need to feel it from their bottom line.

    I never drank Pepsi. It sucks compared to Coke.

    I think you guys have been brainwashed, they taste the same, I drink a lot of both,.. funny how it's a regional preference, the little store down the street sells big bottles of both, but their cooler space is limited,.. the Pepsi, Dr Pepper, Mountain Dew, and Mug root beer, are refrigerated,.. the Coke is stacked off to the side in milk crates because it doesn't sell as well.

    No way they taste the same. Pepsi is too sweet.

    IMHO, availability of either Pepsi or Coke is mostly dependent on the aggressiveness of the local distributor. Also goes, at an even higher level, for franchised restaurants. Basically “the man” is determining the availability, and by extension, your preference.

    I drink Diet Coke and Pepsi interchangeably, dependent solely on which is discounted. But think diet Dr Pepper is the best, tasting the most like the real deal.

    that makes sense, we had a Pepsi bottler factory here in town for ages, maybe like you said, that's why it sells more here, I think it comes in from over the mountain now. I just grab pepsi/coke whichever's cheapest or closest,.. I probably drink as much dr pepper as cola, but never any kind of diet pop

    I've heard that Diet Coke is worse for your teen and methamphetamine. I assume it's the same for all diet soft drinks.

    When I drank soft drinks, I started out drinking Coke but over time switched to Pepsi. I pretty much stopped drinking soft drinks 10 - 15 years ago. Currently, I might have 1 or 2 a year.
