|Coca-cola has always been the top dog, knows|
it, and therefore has always felt smugly
confident about itself, never changing for nobody!
Now Pepsi was always the misfit cousin. Coca-cola always got all the girls. The story of Pepsi will make you feel a little sorry for him. Its a story of big dreams and a massive insecurity complex. It was first created as "Brad's drink" (I know sounds like some hipster drink you would find at Starbucks or something) by a certain Caleb Bradham in 1898. In 1903, suffering from insecurity issues, it renamed itself Pepsi-cola to make itself look more like its more popular cousin. Nevertheless, it shot off quickly and soon was satisfying Americans tastebuds all over the nation. In 1909 it received its first endorsement by the celebrity/race car driver Barney Oldfield, who called it "A bully drink...refreshing, invigorating, a fine bracer before a race."

tried to pretend its hip and cool to make up
for its lack of confidence.
All this history to bring us to today. Now of course the rivalry has much more at stake than these two drinks. There are all the other drinks the two corporations sell. Mountain Dew has always been a big seller for Pepsi, while Sprite has been a big seller for Coca-cola. Americans must make informed choices about these brands. Pepsi for example owns Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pizza Hut. Mountain Dew will always be the gamers' choice of soda. Meanwhile Coca-cola clearly tastes better. I have yet to meet someone that actually prefers the taste of Pepsi versus the taste of Coke. Yet when it comes to the other brands offered on the side, I would say Pepsi wins, mainly because of Mountain Dew. Its a toss up for me, but in the end I vote for Pepsi, mainly because I like Mountain Dew. Plus, I like rooting for the little guy. Pepsi needs the moral support. It needs some encouragement. He has never felt good enough, lets make him feel better about himself.
So anyways! Now you guys should all vote! It would interesting to get a tally of what you guys think! Just comment below this article with either "Pepsi" or "Coca-cola" as your answer! Remember to consider them as corporate entities, and all the brands they sell, not just their namesakes. Alright! Let the vote begin!
1 vote Pepsi baby!
