What's Coca Cola?

Well, the stuff is really easy to get ahold of. I think more stores, and fast food chains support Coca Cola than the Pepsi line, or the other ones. I could be wrong, but that's what I think. People drink it just because it's there. I did, before I really cared about my health.

It's popular.


:D

Coke sucks, Pepsi has better taste. Thats my thoughts anyway, aren't I such a profound thinker?

My brand favor varies, though lately I've been drinking more Coke than Pepsi. For some reason, Pepsi always seems to start out good, but by the time I've reached the end of the can, it's got this really bad flavor to it.

If given the option, though, I'd take Mountain Dew.

The more you know....

Back in the way way long ago (60s I think) it used to have cocaine in it and everyone got hooked. Afterwards the "naughty stuff" was removed and everyone still drunk the stuff cause it was there.

Cocaine-a-cola ;)

'60s is a bit of an overshoot - the cocaine was removed from the product in '29.

My grandpa told me stories about how Coke had alcohol in it when he was a kid. He said that he and his friends would go bowling, and one of them would drink 4-5 cans of Coke. By the end of the night, he couldn't stand.

I personally can't stand the stuff, but it's easy to see why it's popular. Coca-Cola is heavily advertised and generally accepted as a 'cool' drink among kids. Once you get children drinking it, they're customers for life. Or at least until they move on to alcohol. Like you say, the stuff's addictive, and that's what makes it one of the biggest brands in the world.

Coke is for pussies. Now Sprite, that is perfection. Obey your thirst.

I like Coke.

but the diet is crap. go for diet pepsi.

Their colors are red and white. Those are warma and friendly colors. Pepsi is more or less blue and white now (they ditched red when they changed their can design ages ago:/) which is more passive.

Dr. Pepper however is pwnze.

Because it's incredibly delicious and deliciously refreshing.

It kicks Pepsi-Cola in the nuts, basically.

Hsu is right about the pepsi taste... it just tastes funny at the end.

However the best pop is cherry coke. wild cherry pepsi can't compare to it. And cherry coke is good cold, warm, or hot. :D

However coke is 1.78$ without tax here so I don't drink it much :rolleyes2 (with tax I think it hits 2 something(for a 2-liter)).

Pepsi is better than Coca Cola. However, Mountain Dew owns them both (and that's a Pepsi product).

I don't drink much pop but Coca cola used to have actual cocaine in it... I find that to be funny...

I like it, and I have no problem with it. I don't really think that Coke will be a safety hazard unless you drink gallons of it every hour or so. I mean come on, I don't think that Coke is responsible for a lot of deaths.

Coke is popular because it's old, it used to have cocaine in it, and it's the original soft drink. Pepsi is a rip-off of Coca-Cola, and all of their other drinks--Sprite/7Up, Mountain Dew/Mellow Yellow, etc.--have a competitor from the other company. As of now, prettymuch every soft drink company is owned in some way either by Coca-Cola or Pepsi Cola.

Coca-Cola. Coca. As in, from the Coca plant, the same plant used to make cocaine. It used to have cocaine in it, as was mentioned, but they took it out and replaced it with caffiene when they found out how addictive and harmful cocaine was.

It also used to be a type of medicinal syrup, and green. Way back in the day.

Coke has a bite to it. I like that. Pepsi is too sweet.

Vanilla Coke is the greatest.

I live in Atlanta so I can't help but drink Coke, but I try not to drink it too much. Also, I don't have to do any research to remember New Coke. That crap was horrible.

Most of America watches a lot of tv (I know I do!) so we all know there a lot of comercials on tv. What kind of commercials are played the most? The Coca-Cola ones. People regonize the brand whether they want to or not. Even though it has a half-half type taste (not good or bad) it probably sells more do to clever advertising, that is putting their commercials in almost every break. They attempt to wear down the audience into buying their product.

Vannila Coke is the Best!
They don't sell Cherry Coke here anymore :(

All coke (normal, Vannila and Cherry - Non Diet, the ones that matter) is good warm.

Coke was originally advertised as a Drink for Intellectuals, it also designed the Santa Claus we have today ;) complete with Coke Colours.

Diet Coke is okay, and I like Pepsi Max a lot at the moment. And anyway Coca Cola brand drinks do taste nicer than cheap brands. I see brand names as quality, and certainly in this case.

The drink itself don't cost much but the name coca cola does.
I drink it but now more Pepsi Max

We don't have cherry coke here in Ireland what's it like

I can take it or leave it. Mostly I leave it. Pepsi sucks because it's too sweet and has a weird taste so I'd rather not ever have any of that. Mineral water beats all Coke, except when you're having a Rum and Coke. For some reason you just have to have Coke with that and Mineral water just won't do. :)

It's Coke with some cherry flavoring. It's really good.

Its one of my most hated drinks. It can as i posted before, melt pipes when we do plumbing and its not a joke. Give it 10minutes and bam, 1buck to melt a stuck pipe without any fancy chemical. Its that acidic. The only reason i would drink it is when i am feeling cheap. But even then its expensive, its just carbonated sugar water(10 tsp of sugar per cup too).

Obesity starts with this D:

I like Green Tea more.

Mmmm cherry coke is the best. But I wish they'd make a diet one >_<

I think the gritty feeling is that the acid is taking away the calcium from your teeth...and no joke.

Ah yes, Cherry Coke was awesome, but they no longer sell it. The same goes for Pepsi Blue. I liked both of them. I wonder why they stopped selling them.

I couldn't stand Vanilla Coke. I threw up the first time I tried it. :exdee:

Well how come in most restaurants etc all they have to order is Coca-Cola? It actually depends on with which company the restaurant has service with. Some serve Coke, some serve Pepsi, etc...

I have a friend who went to a burger joint (not exactly the type of restuarant I imagine you're talking about, but) in Cali that had some weird off-brand (read: yuppie) soda in lieu of Coke or Pepsi. I think it was called Guarana Cola, or some such? Interesting stuff.

omg... i never knew coca cola used to have cocaine in it.... thats really wierd!!! learn something new an wierd everyday! i dont like it anyway, its too fizzy, but in my house i drink the last bit of the bottle, cos its flat, no one else likes it, an its the only bit i do like... i hate the fizziness of it... i dont understand why you would want to drink fizzy drinks... they make u more thirsty... or is tht just me???

Lionx
07-02-2005, 10:24 PM
Its just Carbon Dioxide if i remember right..the fizziness..or something like that..Carbon. You burp it all out because its not supposed to be in your body. In the end what you are drinking is how it is without the air..sugar water D:

rubah
07-02-2005, 10:31 PM
I though pepsi was older than coke. X.x;

Cherry Coke takes getting used to. I used to hate it when I was little, then I started drinking a lot of it last year X.x;


You burp it out because it's not supposed to be in your body

Or because it's lighter than the other gases in your stomach. But yeah, the body doesn't have much use for carbon dioxide xD

'Cause it has a lot of sugar in it, so people get addicted to it.

Soda! yay! You might as well pour yourself up a half a glass of sugar, fill the rest up with carbonated water, add flavouring, and viola, you have coke/pepsi/any other kind of soda.

Therefore I don't normally drink that $hit, just once every blue moon. It makes you fat, and rots your teeth, your stomach, and has no nutritional value.
