When you ask for Coke at a restaraunt and the waitress says "Is Pepsi ok" what do you really think?
Or visa versa.... Ask for Pepsi and they only have Coke. Or does it not matter to you?
Sometimes it matters, sometimes it don't, but there is definitely a difference in taste. Coca-Cola is sweeter (that's the one I like lol). And the reason they ask if Pesi is okay is because when you ask for a coke, they assume you mean Coca-Cola.
To me personally I can't tell a difference, but I appreciate their being upfront.
Others seem to have strong preference one way or the other. I used to know someone who would respond, "No, Pepsi (or the other one) sucks" at least they had the option!
It really doesn't matter to me. As long as it's diet, I'll drink it :-)
I think that I will have a Mountain Dew instead. I'm a coke guy, I can't drink Pepsi.
I am a die-hard pepsi LOVER and would rather drink water than coke!
I think and say, "No, I'll just have a water, please." But I rarely order a soda, it's usually coffee. I love coffee. Coffee, coffee, coffee.
I cannot tell any difference so I drink both.
It seems I always pick the wrong one though, if I ask for Pepsi, they offer Coke and if I ask for Coke they usually offer Pepsi.
I am after 5 years in the US slowly catching on and asking for Cola, then I get any sweet brown stuff.
I hate it when that happens. I have made restaurants choices, solely, based on whether they serve Coke or not.
I change my drink to Mountain Dew. I don't like Pepsi and Coke is delicious beyond reasonable belief. So if they don't have it, I change my order.
Coke! Coke! Coke!
If they only have Pepsi I ask if they have Dr. Pepper.
I think that the restaurant has a contract with Pepsi Cola, as opposed to Coca Cola.
pepsi, is not a suitable replacement for "coke"...............I choose water instead.
Either way, either choice, I am the customer, the consumer and it DOES matter. I will not pay for an inferior product or service. Would you expect me to accept raw fries? rubbery eggss, burnt toast?
I think she is asking a decent waitress-question. I would rather she asked than brought me Pepsi without asking. I will change my order and everyones happy.
It matters to me. When they ask if Pepsi is okay I will usually ask for a Dr Pepper instead or lemonade. There's no "kick" to Pepsi. To me Pepsi tastes more like Diet Coke. There's something about Coke and that first gulp!
I think, but I'm in Georgia damn it! LOL! Sometimes the Pepsi actually tastes better, it really depends on the location. I eat at Taco Bell a lot, so I'm either really cheap or I guess I like it (Pepsi that is)!

Which is better, Throw Back Pepsi or Coke-a-Cola?I use to love coke, but stopped drinking it because of the High Fructose Corn Syrup. Now Pepsi brought out the throw back, which has none and I must say the difference is amazing. No after taste and I like it more then Coke! Obviously, Coke can't...

What is the difference between Coca-Cola and Pepsi ProductsWhy are some more partial to Coke products while others are more apt to purchase Pepsi? Is it the flavoring? Taste? Name? Which one do you choose and why? AEvans

Coca Cola or Pepsi? which do you prefer? or do you drink neither?Are you a coke drinker or pepsi drinker, or neither? If you do, do you drink the diet variety? has the flavor changed over the years? How about the vanilla flavored coke!
