Skip to comments.The REAL Differences Between Coke And Pepsi People

You probably can't describe the difference between Coke and Pepsi. Perhaps one cola seems sweeter, but you couldn't certainly distinguish them in a taste test. Yet you know without a doubt which one you like more.
The fierce brand loyalties of Coke vs. Pepsi are a marvel of American marketing.
Slightly older, Coca-Cola was always the dominant brand.
Pepsi gained market share in the middle of the century with a series of ad campaigns. In 1975 the first Pepsi Challenge claimed that people preferred Pepsi in a blind taste test. The brand was also marketed as the soda of the new generation, with celebrity spokespeople like Michael Jackson.
Today America's preference is firmly divided by demographics, according to research by Hunch.com. Surprisingly there's a big divide based on wealth and education.

The premise is wrong. Who CAN’T taste the difference between the two? Pepsi tastes like crap and I don’t really give a damn about their histories.
“but you couldn’t certainly distinguish them in a taste test. “
Of course you can
I drink water mostly.
Its better for you...
I prefer Pepsi
>>Coke drinkers more likely to have grad. college
I grad. college (B.A.)
>>Pepsi people prefer classic American snacks, like Cheese Whiz and Spam.
That’s me, er—SPAM???
>>Coke drinkers read the New York Times. Pepsi people—USA Today
>>Coke drinks consider themselves well traveled.
I, a Pepsi drinker, am well traveled
>>Coke drinkers will show up early.
This Pepsi drinker does.
I drink both, though I prefer Coke over ice. I guess that makes me a snob?
I drink coke and never been to an art gallery, so there!
I drink Tea, or Dr. Pepper. Given the choice tho, I’ll take Coke thank you. :)
BTW, when ordering a soft drink in Texas, you ask for a coke, then the waitress asks what kind, then you ask for a Dr. Pepper, as it is in the coke family. It isn’t “soda” or “pop”, it’s a coke (dammit)! :)
Naah, putting it over ice and diluting it makes it as bad as Pepsi.
I just like Pepsi Throwback (with sugar!)
I never thought about what little categories I’m supposed to fit into.
I hate Pepsi’s politics however.
I drink Coke but I like the taste of Pepsi better.
I hate sushi, caviar, Cheese Whiz, Spam, and the New York Times.
But most of all, I hate companies whose CEOs compare my country to a raised middle finger. That’s why I drink Coke.
They are the fat ones. :)
I’ll drink either Coke or Pepsi.
When I drink coke, it’s Coke.
And I would be able to tell a difference blind-folded and with the flu. Still, this seems like an advertising piece.
Coke drinkers tend to see themselves as citizens of America
Pepsi drinkers see themselves as citizens of the world.
Coke drinkers work hard and play hard
Pepsi drinkers are dope smoking left wing political activists
Coke drinkers vote Republican and love the Constitution
Pepsi drinkers love the new "Choice of a new generation" Barack Hussein Obama and Communism
Bet you didn't know you could get all that from what soda people drink did ya?
RC Cola and Dr. Pepper drinkers tend to be Tea Partying Libertarians who want you to leave them alone and get the hell out of their country (meaning the State they live in).
