I used to drink coke and also liked pepsi max but not pepsi. ive stopped now because i realise that it causes me to dehydrate due to it not being water. but back then when i used to drink it i though coke was definitely better - because it had a better taste - i think maybe was more sweeter. Ive heard that people's preferences to pepsi or coke also have a relation to their demographics. for example, i heard that on the east coast of the u.s. they preferred to drink pepsi but in canada they preferred to drink coke. is this true? which would you rather drink? and where do you reside?

Well, i drink pepsi, and i've also tried coke. ANd i must say, that frankly put, i find pepsi a WHOLE lot better then coke. I dont know why is that, but that's for me. Anyways, it's all on personal choices, so this thing is like, people really cant actually argue on what's the better softdrink!

yeh i guess it really is just personal tastes - i know that some people find musk (a certain smell as well as flavour for candy products) horrible wheras others really enjoy it. same as licorise as well.

neither!.. both is equally bad.. yes.. it's fine to drink either one once awhile.. but .. come to think of it.. 7 spoon of sugar is equivalent to 1 tin of pepsi or coke.. do you still want to take it? yes.. i do used to take it last time.. because i'm not sure of the effect.. but my grandpa told me that one of my uncle actually passed away due to excessive coke.. i think i don't have to explain why... our kidney actually have to work 7 times harder just to clear the coke in our body.. can you believe it? i think drinking once a while is okay. atleast it helps strenghten your kidney.. but not always ya :)

yes, i normally feel pretty thirsty after drinking any soft drink. one time, it was a hot night at a party and all i drank was sprite and coke - ended up getting dehydration and diarreah.

I live in California and I drink Coke. My mother-in-law, uncle and daughter drink Pepsi. My other daughter drinks Coke. My husband drinks Dr. Pepper. I don't drink Coke that often because I don't like what it does to my body. I think Pepsi has a horrible after taste.

i agree, ive avoided coke for a while and have now switched to ice tea - i think right now at this time - ice tea has become cool because ive noticed more and more people are drinking it.

I used to drink the regular Coke a lot before but I'm being health conscious these days so I only drink the Coke light version. I rarely drink Pepsi. I drink Pepsi if there's no Coke available LOL I hope that one of these days I can give up drinking softdrinks all together, though.
