Coca-Cola vs Pepsi: Who Comes Out on Top in Studies?

By Jen Matilda

The Coke vs. Pepsi debate has gone on for decades, and there are millions of people on both sides of the debate, swearing by their preferred soda brand.

Let’s take a look at four of the more popular types of soda and see who wins the debate in the most recent of taste tests and surveys. Are your favorites their favorites too?

This is based on a collection of surveys as opposed to just one, so while there’s no scientific method behind my findings, you can still take these with a grain of salt. At the end of the day, it all comes down to your personal opinion anyway.

Coke vs. Pepsi. This is the big one, as each main cola is the top seller for the respective brand. Maybe it’s their marketing budget, their history, or their worldwide appeal, but the taste of Coke wins out marginally over Pepsi. Some find Pepsi to taste too sweet.

In the diet soda realm, the rivalry is nearly just as big as those conscious about their caloric intake. Each calorie free drink strikes to taste like the real thing. When polled, more people preferred the taste of diet Pepsi to the taste of diet Coke.

Sprite vs. Sierra Mist. There’s 7up on Pepsi’s end too, but it looks like Sierra Mist has been pushed harder in recent years. While Sprite enjoys higher sales (probably due to more recognition and a longer track record), people have preferred Sierra Mist in blind taste tests.

Cherry Coke vs. Wild Cherry Pepsi. People were very divided on this issue, though most preferred the taste of fountain Cherry Coke to fountain Wild Cherry Pepsi. This aside, Wild Cherry Pepsi marginally won out in taste tests.

Clearly, public opinion remains split on this issue, as it’s one that could really go either way.
