Food Fight! : Coca Cola vs. PepsiOctober 7, 2018
- Rob ChamWords
Welcome to Food Fight, a new weekly installment on Pepper.ph where we will explore various food and drink rivalries of the known universe, and have them settled once and for all.
Through Food Fight, we can all decide which food product reigns supreme. Let the fight begin!
Unveiling this week”s installment: Coca Cola Vs Pepsi
Coca Cola versus Pepsi! Yes.
Let us get to know our contestants:
Year established: 1886
Estimated Market Share: Let”s not get into that right now.
The literal giant of the Cola industry, the standard for which all soft drinks aspire for, truly a symbol of how corporations will never die and continue to pump sugar into our veins. Coca Cola! Classic, refreshing, almost everywhere and quite the charming drink in all their advertising campaigns, what else can I say about it other than I think it”s going to replace water one day.
Year established: 1898 (actually in 1893, but it was known as Brad”s Drink, which is pretty dang sad)
Best Pepsi-related product ever:
The underdog of this rivalry, the story of Pepsi is a story we can admire. Despite the odds, despite the name change, despite the time it went bankrupt, despite the time it went bankrupt again, it still exists. And we have to admire the fact that it does. Maybe.
We all know these two products. We”ve all gotten disoriented when ordering drinks at restaurants that only cary one brand or the other, but never both. We all have our horrible preferences when it comes to these diabetes-causing, sugar death traps. So enough of the introduction, not that we”ll ever need one. This seems pointless to me now. But moving on!
We want to know which one is better than the other in your opinion, dear reader, so we can declare one superior over the other, and have it gratuitously drawn in a violent manner when we declare who wins. I promise it will be funny. Will it be Coca Cola, the dear sweet red temptress, or will it be Pepsi, the known underdog in the Cola wars?
