Yes, still Pepsi products. I just wish restaurants would start offering more choices in diet drinks. I am pretty much limited to either diet Coke or diet Pepsi when we eat out. Some are now offering diet Dr. Pepper in addition to cola. KFC only has caffeine-free diet Pepsi.

When I drank regular soft drinks, I preferred regular Pepsi to Coke. I hated diet drinks and couldn't drink them. When I was diagnosed with diabetes, my tastes changed immediately and I suddenly loved diet pops and don't like regular! I know that is a mind thing, but thank goodness it happened. Now that I drink diet, I much prefer Coke to Pepsi. I am not supposed to have a lot of caffeine (kidney stones), and I love diet A&W rootbeer so I drink that quite a bit (and sometimes diet orange or Sprite Zero). I love diet Cherry Coke and diet Cherry Pepsi best, when it comes to colas, and I like diet Lime Coke now and then. Plus, I drink a ton of water and lemonade (with Splenda). I'm supposed to drink lemonade every day (urologist's orders) but can't always afford it.

coke or pepsi?

Neither. At least for drinking. However,they both make a great base for marinades. The composition of both of them start a tenderization process and they both go well with most of the spices I have tried with them. I have used this little trick on many different types of meat and we have loved how the flavors and textures come out.
Thanks for the chance to get that tip out there.

Coca Cola is the number 1 selling cola everywhere in the United States, except in Western New York. Don't ask me why, I don't know.

About 8-10 years ago, as a stockholder, I received a Coke annual report.

The back cover had this statement:

A billion months ago, diansaurs roamed the earth

A billion seconds ago, the Beatles were taking America by storm.

A billion Cokes ago, was yesterday.

I need to add further that it's diet coke, glass filled to the top with ice and must be fountain soda. And I have to fill it myself not order it. Silly huh?

For those of you with classic cars, they are both great for taking the rust off chrome bumpers, and if you pour a little down each cylinder, they'll free up a seized engine, too!
