First of all, this thread shouldnt' be about arguing which one is better, so no C or P flamewars please  Smile

I'd be more interested in which flavours are available in your country and which you like the most or whether are you addicted to such beverages or not. My private little theory is that there must be some addictive drug in Coke for sure...

I don't think its only about sugar, there are loads of sweet drinks but people tend to buy just Coke. Maybe it's something in the flavour...?

Well, AFAIK Coca Cola used to be made with Cocaine, or at least with Coca leaves, hence the name. But when Cocaine got outlawed, CC had to change the formula to the addictive one they got now.

Yes, I am a Coca Cola junkie. No day is complete for me without at least a can of Coke.  bigthumbsup

Their latest annual report shows that Coca-Cola are losing market share, partly to Pepsi but also to other manufacturers.

I remember when this catastrophe happened.



Within a few days of its debut, people had bought up every last can and bottle of remaining original Coke. Some stores were selling it at a premium. The highest price I saw was $12 for a 12-pack of 12-ounce cans.

I really like Coke Zero at the moment; I get the best of both worlds! Healthy (well, compared to normal Coca Cola), yet it tastes good.

Speaking with some knowledge. I work in a small gorcery store. On average the coke rep delivers product twice a week whilst the pepsi rep is here once every other week and there is still plenty on the shelves. My manager said that coke sells something like 2-1 at my work.

So...My favourite Cokes and Pepsis are:

1. Coca Cola Sango (available in Belgium and Luxemburg only)
2. Diet Pepsi Vanilla (USA version, maybe in UK too)
3. Diet Coke with Lime
4. Pepsi Max Coffee Cino (from UK or Ireland without sugar)

But unfortunately any of this tastes are not available in Czech where do I live, so I have to import all the time from my trips to other countries or ask my friends...

And my cans collection from all around the world:
