Official: Coke takes over parts of the brain that Pepsi can't reach

I used to work at Coca Cola mixing batches of syrups for the various flavours and I still preferred Pepsi! :b
Diet Coke is the bomb yo!
Diet Pepsi is weak. (I cant stand that my office only serves Pepsi.)
Drew, maybe you overdosed on Coca Cola fumes.
C2 isn't that bad. I had my own blind taste test, and actually preferred it to the original.
I had a friend growing up who preferred Pepsi, I was the Coke girl. We mixed up our unlabeled drinks (in cups/paper glass) all the time.
We both, said "BLICK" when we did it, we both always knew.
I can ALWAYS tell the diffrence. Bring on the double blind
I like to think I can tell the difference too! I remember being able to tell when I am at a restaurant, although nowadays they will say "Is Pepsi okay?" when you ask for a Coke.
What is C2? That's a new Coca Cola right?
C2 is Coke with half the calories. It's best in the can. I was expecting a Diet Coke taste, but it had that authentic Coke taste, without any aspertame too-sweet taste, and it seemed just a tad bit creamier than the Real Thing.
stimulated a huge increase in activity in parts of the brain associated with cultural knowledge, memory and self-image
does this mean I am in dire lack of stated cultural knowledge, memory (I know that’s true…I can’t remember a third of what I read ) and self-image….and need a constant boost? OR…..are Mega levels my natural state?…… MUST see more research.
Restaurants are better about this. Is Pepsi okay?
Another reason I know I know, though rarely do I order cold drinks, over years I have several times ordered Coke and with no comment, - was brought Pepsi! I would quiz the waiter who would admit “We only serve Pespi, most people don’t mind. I should have asked you”. I stick on this one…and ask for a change to tea or water…..I’m not going to DRINK it.
> nowadays they will say "Is Pepsi okay?" when you ask for a Coke
They have to, to protect themselves. Coke sends spies out to check on that (people selling other colas as "Coke").

Come on, your kidding right?
I agree, Diet Pepsi has a weak, flat taste to it.
I'll tolerate Diet Pepsi in a restaurant, but I never purchase a case for home. If Pepsi products are the ones on sale I'll just grab a case of Diet Mnt. Dew.
Pepsi loses its fizz much quicker. I like Cherry Coke when I lower myself to drink a soda.
Screw both, been drinking nothing but filtered tap-water for the past 2 months and I feel grrrreat!
I remember reading about Coke winning a lawsuit where if a place didn't sell Coke, and someone asked for it, they now have to tell them it's Pepsi instead. Coke argued that they might lose customers if they are drinking an inferior product and think it's Coke. I forget if the ruling also applied to someone asking for Pepsi. The place may or may not have to tell them they're getting Coke. I never heard of any spies being sent out though, and I've never heard of anyone getting sued. But since all restaurants do it, I'm guessing someone got sued at some point in time.
I thought it was proven long ago that side by side taste tests do not work. I remember reading about this years ago.
Nearly all of the time, not 100%, the person will pick the second choice. So, if Coke is giving the test, they have them taste their product after the Pepsi, and the person will almost always pick Coke. Same for Pepsi, but vice versa.
Fuck that, what about the movie Looker? Yikes.
