Coke vs. Pepsi
According to the Independent, researchers have proven that the difference between Coke and Pepsi really is all in your head. Apparently the popularity of Coke's brand image causes people to think Coca-Cola itself tastes better, even though it really doesn't taste very different from Pepsi. As the article says: "When asked to taste blind, they showed no preference. However, when the participants were shown company logos before they drank, the Coke label, the more famous of the two, had a dramatic impact: three-quarters of the tasters declared they preferred Coke." I've long suspected this. Personally I can't taste any difference between Coke and Pepsi, but I have a friend who swears passionately that there's a huge difference. Now I can show him this research to prove that he's simply been brainwashed by advertising. Oh, and the Pepsi Taste Test also turns out to be nothing but hot air: "The findings suggest there is no scientific basis for claims made during the Pepsi ad campaign in which testers purportedly chose Pepsi over Coke when they were not told what they were drinking."

okay....coca cola is way better the flavor is more unique. I CAN taste the difference.Why would people want to buy a soda that is copying another? I'm gonna stick with the original...coca cola

I'll say it again, if you want to stick with the original you'll have to give up on Coke. Dr Pepper came out before Coca-Cola, and many other drinks preceeded DP.

* Wow, look at yourselves...... From what I can see a lot of the Coke drinkers seem quite rude and obnoxious.... IT IS ALL ABOUT PREFERENCE. WHAT TASTES GOOD TO ME, MAY NOT TO YOU, GET OVER IT! BUT PORTRAYING THAT ONE IS BETTER THAN ANOTHER IS RIDICULOUS!! And neither company copied eachother either, there are HUNDREDS/THOUSANDS of different kinds/brands of EVERYTHING, GROW UP!!!

I think that Pepsi doesnt really have a sweeter taste, but that its crisper, and Coke has a more caramel/syrupy taste. Think about it. Both have an equivalent amount of carbonation and I prefer Pepsi
Posted by Kevin  in  Fresno CA  on  Wed Aug 01, 2007  at  07:24 PM
Hey Austin Sims you are full of shit!
PEPSI Cola has 0.4% more sugar and is less carbonated.
This is not a matter of opinion this is fact.

Untill the next time...
GO TO HELL!

coke is the real thing. if anyone says pepsi is better they are idiots. pepsi is big in 5 or 6 countries and coke is known and drank world wide!
for those about to drink coke we salute you! coke kicks pepsi ass bigtime.
Posted by carter  in  mitchell mb  on  Thu Sep 20, 2007  at  10:00 PM
well. hey, ive taken a many taste tests with coke. somehow i know the difference....and pepsi has more sugar an its proven it can clean off an do all that stuff my coke does but since coke is widley larger an well known in the world( 2nd most known word around the world, first most known brand) they tried an made it sound bad. Coke is differnet in many ways. smell taste, all that crap. it sux ass.
Pepsi is more popular than Coke in Pakistan an Quebec Canada. Coke dominates all other soft drinks in every other country. and obviously since those dummy scientists(which prolly is the real hoax) dont know the recipe as coke is the most famous trade secret reicpe in the world

im doig a huge sciece fair thing for my freshman year in college (UT) and its about the diff btwn pepsi and coke, they both basically have the same ingrediants except pepsi has citric acid and sugar, ya coke doesnt have sugar, thats the only difference in the ingedients
Posted by Lola  in  Austin, texas  on  Sun Sep 30, 2007  at  09:32 PM
yea coke is better. no question about that... but pepsi does have one very good thing about it...they came out with mountain dew
Posted by b-rizzle  in  hotmail.com  on  Mon Oct 01, 2007  at  03:43 PM
ok here is the real deal of this 3 year on going form......one for the jack a.z.z. that works for coke and said the only reason pepsi is still here is because of mn dew , 1. we sell twice as much pepsi as we do mountain dew, 2. we sell 4 times the amount diet as cola does 3.we have 32 more flavores the coke, 4. is that for the last 7 years we have grown at a 23% rate as a company in whole. 5. we have beat coke in sales, (Especially in bulk sales i.e sams club cost co, etc) for 8 years running, 6. last but not lest we as a company grow and expand every year with things like the buy out of taco bell pizza hut KFC frito lay etc, what has coke done this year, forget that what has coke done in the last 15 years?.......coke will always be around thats a given but dont be surpised when your pay check has a pepsi logo on it.....

The difference is obvious. Pepsi is more mellow and is less fizzy. Coke is much stronger in terms of carbonation. Pepsi maintains a constant carbonation for a while. Coke loses fizz quicker. Pepsi causes me hiccups and causes me to barf. Coke doesn't.

OMG!I LIKE COKE MUCH BETTER THAN PEPSI (MY OPINION)PEPSI TASTES FLAT TO ME IF THAT MAKES ANY SINCE
Posted by ABI  in  TENNSSEE  on  Mon Nov 05, 2007  at  01:44 PM
I did a statistics research project in school. As this was a very low key study (just a few hundred participants), we found that (with no taste test), that people chose coke products over pepsi products.

We did the chi-square test to see relevance between survey questions and brand preferance, and found that taste had nothing to do with people's decisions; the only correlation out of our 10 question survey was what people were brought up drinking.
