    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!

    neither! Both are too gassy for me. Keeps burping, so embarrassing! I prefer fruit juice. Furthermore, both carbonated drinks are sweet and i keep getting toothache!

    I don't drink soda much these days, but when I used to, I usually chose Pepsi over Coke because of how much sweeter it was.

      I don't mind pepsi.  But like you, I try to avoid soft drinks as well.  Thanks for sharing.

    If I do have a soda, I choose coke.  I don't like the after taste of a Pepsi.  I rarely have any soda anymore-empty calories.  I prefer to stick with water.  smile

    When I used to drink regular Coke or Pepsi, I preferred the taste of Pepsi. When I switched to diet soda, I liked the taste of Diet Coke better.  I love vanilla but not in my soda. I do love Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper.

    I'm not too picky when it comes to the "cola wars". I usually have what's available at a party. Or ask the server what they offer. I do prefer Lemon-lime sodas.  I'll drink  Sprite, Sierra mist or 7-Up.  If you like Coca Cola, you should try International/ "Mexico" Coca Cola. Tastes slightly different from what's commonly served in the United States.

    Depends on where I am. In the U.S., Coca Cola is my favorite. If I'm in Europe, then Pepsi and tea are the only liquids I touch. Vanilla flavored makes me feel sick though and diet anything is horrid.

      I am not a fan of the vanilla coke either.

    I prefer Coke when I drink one or the other.  But this is a divided front because hubby is a die hard Pepsi drinker smile

    I am an addict. I was one of the 17 people on earth who liked the New Coke even with it's "celery" aftertaste. I know all the Coca-Cola songs from "It's the Real Thing" to "Have a Coke and a Smile." I leave Santa a Coke every Christmas to wash down his cookies. I prefer my Coke with light ice and an occasional squeeze of lemon. I used to drink "Camaros"--Coke and amaretto--exclusively. I still believe flat Coke is drinkable. I do my best writing while sipping on Coke.

    I'm drinking Coca-Cola right now ...

      My son is an addict also.  I enjoyed reading your comment. wow, brings back memories, all those advertising jingles!  Didn't santa's colors, the red and white, originate from the Coca Cola colors??  thanks for sharing!

    I don't drink soda often but when I do I drink pepsi. There's just something about coke that I don't care for, but I couldn't tell you what it is!

    As a kid it was definitely Coca Cola, especially if it was ice cold.  Now its nothing but water - with a cocktail thrown in occasionally for good measure.

    Pepsi Max. Diet coke if there is nothing else, and Zero Coke if there is no diet!

    Can't stand the Vanilla Coke, or the lemon one...the Lime Pepsi they brought out for a while was...interesting.

    Have a nasty habit of drinking Pepsi....I'm trying to decrease my intake....gah!

    Sprite, cause you shouldn't drink dark sodas, it's bad for the teeth. A new study came out about the side effects of drinking diet soda. The fake sugar added to diet sodas is processed differently inside your body and creates an increase appetite. So when you think you are drinking a healthier alternative, you are actually making yourself more hungry. So my advice is to stay away from diet soda completely.

    I would like to prefer Coca Cola because I like the taste of Coca Cola more than Pepsi. But i like Sprite than all drinks.

    I know all the fast food joints that sell Pepsi products and they are few but they are the ones I prefer to visit on occasion. Diet Pepsi is my choice.
