This is the 12th Poll lately!

Pepsi or Coke?

Let the negatives fly!

hehe...

Allright, what is with all the polls lately? I found 11 of them in the past 2 weeks!(in the general discussion forum) (around) It's kind of strange that all these polls pop up. Polls about the Super Bowl (go panthers), polls about polls (????ok..), skiing or snowboarding, favorite foods (that was a wierd one), fav. type of music...etc... I am not saying they shouldn't be here, but something wierd is going on.

Can we please try to cut down on the wierd polls? 'Specially the ones that keep coming up...like, Best camera, where are you from..etc.


Maybe someone agrees? Probably not, but OK

I used to be into coke, but it kinda died out in the early 90's. I stopped having parties and stuff... Pepsi's pretty good though.

I mean just look at the logo's






Sure, logo's don't make thatm uch of a difference, but thay taste the same, and basically are the same. So the only thing left is the marketing! smile

Pepsi for casual drinking, but coke is extremely good when purchased from a fast food restuarant.

Hmm, very hard choice. I heard that 10-15 years ago or something like that, coke was drunk by 99% of soda drinker people (if that makes sense) and they wanted the 1% so bad, that they went and changed their recipe to be more like pepsis. The percentage of poepl who bought coke flew down and pepsi was taking the lead. They went back to their original recipe which is why on coke is says Coke classic.

Pretty bad decision for Coke. If I had 99% of a market, unless it was a fool proof plan, I would stick with the 99%.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with these polls, but why are you posting a poll like this (which could be classified as 'weird' to a certain degree) if you want less weird polls?

Ugh, that poll was because there were too many polls. Then Mechaforce made a poll making fun of polls. Obviously people didn't get it, because more polls kept popping up. Then this poll popped up... pretty much stating exactly what I and Mechaforce said. How about this? No more polls or polls making fun of polls.

Ok let me put this straight coke is made by the coka cola company and pepsi is made by pepsi. I look on the bottle all the time and Ive also noticed that Coka cola makes sprite and pepsi makes 7up!

I like coke better biggrin tastes better and Im the type of guy who notices the fine difference between the two. By the way can we stop with the polls for now its getting really redicilous. Just seems like once chromanator was released people stoped having logical things to talk about and all these polls poped up for no reason. Im sure one a week wouldnt like favorite food but most of these have been posted before. So can we please stop and just try to get some more logical things to talk about?

Virgin Cola sucks. Sainsbury's Classic Cola here used to be the number one cola above Coke and Pepsi. Supposedly it tastes like Coke in the US does.

Hehe, European Root Beers are WEIRD. I stumbled on a yellow one once (??). You need to try a 'Mug' Root Beer (mug is the name of the company).

My all-time favorite drinks are Mug root beer and Crush Cream Soda (as well as anything else that is Crush).

Did you know that 'Fanta' was created upon Hitlers request?

During World War2 coke wasn't available in Germany (for obvious reasons) and Hitler was greatly concerned that if the German people didn't have some luxuries, which included coke, then their morale might be broken. So he had a drink created to fill the 'coke' gap, and that drink was Fanta.

Dr Pepper is discusting and also not a coke.

Ah, Coke Light is not just a different name for diet coke, it has a different sweetner like Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Max. We have both apparently but diet coke is the one which is most popular.

Personally I think the diet ones taste gross and anyway what is the point in getting diet when you are having it with a big greasy burger?

Hahaha sence you mention "Combined" I sometimes try to mix different type of drinks togeather. Sprite mixed with Coke gave me a nice and interesting taste I liked it biggrin, but perhaps it wasnt a good idea adding Mountian Dew to the mix sad

Haha, I agree Kid. Diet Coke tastes weird. As for the whole concept of diet products, people are strange & don't realise or want to consider that a more balanced diet will lead to weight loss.

Am I the only one who finds humour in people examining the packets of food & working out to the nearest fraction how much of something they can eat or drink? Perfectly average-built people too, may I add!
