The never-ending battle: Pepsi vs. Coke

Postby gamepyrate » Wed May 14, 2003 4:41 am

Taking in to account price/performance/market-share/yearly stock dividends/can (or bottle) shape/chance of winning a sweepstakes under the cap/longevity, please state your opinion on which is the better soft drink manufacturer: Pepsi or Coke.

And if you do not like either regular Pepsi or Coca Cola sodas, then you can choose one of Pepsi or Coca Cola's other soft drinks. If you drink, for example, Dr. Pepper, you would vote for Coca Cola because they are the manufacturer of it; if you drink Pepsi One you would vote for Pepsi. . .

I also added two other soft drinks, which nobody drinks I know. -=You know better then that gamepyrate!!=-

Well, actually there wasn't any more choices than the two besides Pepsi and Coke, as everybody knows that cool people only buy Pepsi or Coke products, and nobody is stupid enough to buy the old outdated Arizona Iced Teas or the soft-drink for eccentrics, Fruitopia, or even that poor performing, over-hyped SoBe--or at least they aren't stupid enough to buy them and continue to buy them and admit to it...

I voted for Coke. My favorite soft-drink is Mountain Blast Powerade, and also Fruit Punch Powerade. Powerade, I think, provides the best bang for your buck, just like DatekTrader21's ideal woman. For $1 at the soda machines around here you get a 20 oz. Powerade that will significantly boost available resources of energy and will also cool your rig down.

The shape of the Powerade 20 oz. bottle is perfect for putting in your pocket when you're on the run -- providing unmatched mobility, and it's also extremely easy to hold in your hand because of the ergonomic, user friendly design. The opening is wide and allows for quick and easy access to the fluid and is best used in burst mode -- where you take a quick but BIG gulp, by opening your mouth and tilting the bottle at a 90-135* angle with the cap off for approximately 2.537 seconds, and then quickly returning the bottle to its original position. It takes a great amount of skill to pull this off while you are running, but that doesn't mean it takes a professional to pull off -- the big hole can also be utilized by newbies who prefer the slower method of drinking it in little gulps while tilting the bottle.

Powerade is of course said to be the rip-off Gatorade -- WHATEVA -- all you Intel, err I mean Gatorade users just have to stop buying into Gatorade's brainwashing and confusing products. Powerade is the under-dog and provides the best flavors without compromising daily vitamin value and other things.

Personally, I said COKE cause I enjoy the whole range of their products - Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Cheery Coke, Vanialla Coke, Dr Pepper. This is pretty much my avid drinking list.

Wow, what ever happened to that Generation-X hype crap that Pepsi-Cola was trying? I guess I wasn't wrong in the assumption that most of their sodas are over-rated in advertisements...

Hehe the 1 who voted for RC Cola obviously made a mistake and probably meant to vote for Coca Cola, or the person is just an idiot, or maybe he/she has no taste buds -- because really, who, besides homeless people, buys RC Cola? ... That's what I thought.

And nice post whoring Tulatin you're probably gonna hit 1,000 in the next week. Haven't seen as much post whoring since.....

i found some of the sobe drinks to be excellent during heavy work/ 12-16 hr days during the midnight hour into the am hours (the ones w/ guarana). i found that it was way better than coffee, and goes down smoother than soda (minus the acid, and carbonation). i'd like to see more vitamins and minerals, along w/ the boost as well. i do take a b- complex and vitamin e for nerves and anti- oxidant at that point in the day, as it's during the final work effort before heading home. just enough to keep going, but not too much that i can't go to bed (bark at the moon). if too much, then the next day is shot- which is counter productive. finding the right amount is a delicate balance.
