Posted on 03/17/2011 8:45:24 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
U.S. sales of Diet Coke overtook those of Pepsi-Cola for the first time in 2010, making the diet soda the No. 2 carbonated soft drink in the country behind Coca-Cola, industry data are expected to confirm Thursday.
Occupying the top two rankings would mark a historic win for Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO - News) in its decades-old rivalry with PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP - News), which has seen its market share slip in recent years and is trying to retool its marketing.

I always get a kick out of some porker ordering a double-double, chili fries.....and a diet Coke.
Just my personal tastes but I consider Diet Coke the nastiest tasting of most all diet sodas. To me it has a tinny taste. Coke Zero I like, but Diet Coke I have to put a shot of Regular Coke or vanilla flavoring in it to kill the taste.
Diet coke with aspartame = poison....
That stuff is brutally disgusting. Diet Dr Pepper or Coke Zero are at least reasonably alright. Yuck!
Diet Coke is like carbon credits, it helps to offset the bad stuff, donchaknow? ;-)
Ugh. Diet soda. I’d walk around drinking watered-down, unsweetened tea before I drank diet soda. I’ve never found a non-sugar sweetener that didn’t have a horrid aftertaste. Granted, I haven’t tried truvia yet.
I agree, Diet Coke tastes better.
Been drinking it for 25+ years and loving it.
Being from Georgia I have to ask. What is this “Pepsi?!” and why should I care?
Coke Zero FTW!
I couldn’t stand both of them: Pepsi and Coke. Coke was a sponsor of the Daily Show mock protest in DC and pepsi logo looks exactly like the idiotic obama hopeychangey logo.
I just head to the 99C store and get either a 3 liter pop or 6 cans for 99C.
Just a thought.
I’ll probably get flamed by WalMart haters for saying this, but I much prefer Sam’s Diet Cola over Diet Coke. To me it has just a hint of cinnamon-like flavor, and it’s $2.50 a 12 pack vs. $3.98 for DC.
Aldi’s has a great diet cola, cheap too.
Pepsi Max lover here, too. Pepsi One is pretty good as well.
Definitely Pepsi Max. I rarely go near Diet Coke anymore. Max is the best thing since Jolt Cola but without the sugar.
Even better than this?
COKE ZERO is way better than Diet Coke!
