    I rather Pepsi for sentimental reasons I guess, as I have yet to notice any discernible difference between the two.

    Here we diverge, I find Pepsi much sweeter, perhaps less carbonated, and without the "bite" of Coca-Cola. I wax nostalgic, and long have wanted to try the original Coke, you know, the version with actual cocaine in it. I think that was pre-1903.

    Commercialized cocaine sounds like they were having a lot of fun back then.

    "Secret Ingredients".......!

    Not only that, but since coke (that kind) is an alkaloid plant derivitive, if it were around today they'd probably trumpet it as, "all natural"! Fun indeed!

    I like both, but I like coke more often then pepsi, I used to love cherry pepsi and hate cherry coke.

    Coke lovers pepsi lovers all of the above, try this

    Get a fresh lemon, squeeze a slice into your ice cold coke, stir it a little with your straw and enjoy.

    Coke just has a better taste, It is kinda hard to explain lol. But who does not love when you get a brand new thing of coke and drink it while eating a burger or something YUM yum lol.

    I always give the nod to Coke. After all, ya gotta respect a product that, back in the day, was made with real cocaine..! And you know what, if the government hadn't made then take it out, I bet it would still be in there.

    How (much more) horrific would that make a McDonalds kid's party ?

    "We Gotta Get Out this Place, If it's the Last Thing We Ever Do"!

    Or so said Eric Burdon & the Animals
    Well, the TV news doesn't usually withhold the designation, "disaster", regardless whether it's the oil spill in the Gulf, a nun being killed by a hit and run driver, or 6 inches of snow, they're all disasters. Consequently, I've become hardened to the term, and have my own definition of "disaster". Which is, having to sit through the news while waiting for "Jeopardy".

    So, that said, some might call actual cocaine in the colas at a child's birthday party at McDonalds a "disaster". Myself, if I saw the party hats, I'd just say f*** it, and go to Wendy's. The fact notwithstanding that the little s***s probably also have 9mm pistols in their backpacks. In fact, if the coke was still in the coke, they probably wouldn't be able to begin selling crack, following their twelfth birthday party.

    I don't especially like either, but if people around here heard me speak out against coke, I would probably be killed.

    Why? If you don't drink it, that's more for me.

    Besides, that's unnecessarily paranoid. Who cares what you think.
