I am actually a Coke & Pepsi hater! Last I dark a glass of coke was 8 years ago when I had serious morning sickness and some wise old lady told me to drink chilled Coke with water : half and half. I dont think that helped!
I used to be completely addicted to Pepsi, drinking 2 to 4 cans a day, although 4 cans was a rare occasion. My wife and I gave it up together, and moved to ginger ale instead. The idea was to cut out the consumption of cola, and lower our sugar intake. Ginger ale has just over half the sugar of either cola. We both know this isn't a perfect solution, our next task is to quit drinking carbonated drinks altogether.
Let your conscience be your guide. Although we may not be able to quote exactly how many calories these drinks contain, we're all aware that they're a no-no if we want to avoid putting on weight - and let's face it, the majority of us are doing our best to have the svelte profile we see constantly in advertisements. Now I can't say that I don't indulge in the occasional Bourbon and Coke but I'm then thinking "how many km on the treadmill will I have to do to work it off??!!" Well, I think I've said it - it's Coke, not Pepsi but the local supermarket manager is definitely not laying out the red carpet for me when it comes to Coke sales.
I am not really a cola drinker, however, if I must choose one, only PEPSI will do. It has smaller bubbles, and has less gas.
Coke always hurts my throat because the bubbles are very scratchy &Coke has far too much gas in it.
I don't drink either, but many years ago, I tasted Coke. There's been a few different flavours of Coke. I was handed a free Vanilla Coke at C.Quay once, & that tasted awful! I haven't ever tasted Pepsi.
