Default I Just A/B Tested Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola. AMA.

Even though I've had both beverages multiple times before and was always aware that there are differences in their flavour profiles, never have I drank both beverages within a narrow enough time span that I could directly compare them and identify the specific differences between them. I mean, it's not like I'd ever have reason to purchase two cola soda pops at once, right? Who would possibly be intrepid enough to do that?

Well, last night, I dared to do just that. I went to the corner store and bought one of each, with the express intent of drinking them both and alternating sips.

These two beverages similar colour masks some subtle differences between them.

Wish to know more? Ask me anything.

How does it feel to be personally and solely responsible for the widespread of plastic pollution?

On a more serious note, what are your thoughts on the vanilla flavoured Coke and Pepsi?

I'd like to thank my eighth-grade English teacher, Mr. Belusci, for telling me that I could accomplish anything I put my mind to.

I like Vanilla Coke. Didn't even know there was a Vanilla Pepsi.

They don't look like real bears, but rather, people in suits. Their eyes are too aware. I don't trust them.

if you were guzzling on cola after someone smashed in your teeth at a bar fight, would you rather suck mccauly culkin's cock or just be michael jackson?

although it's pretty telling that if you ask for a pepsi in a coke-loyal eating establishment the server will be like, "no pepsi, we do have coke though!" but if you ask for coke in a pepsi restaurant the server will be like, "ooooooooooo sorry, we only have pepsi, is that ok?"

did you take a sip of water or anything else in between sips of coke and pepsi to "reset the palate"?

was this a blind test, in which you had no visible clues as to which beverage you were drinking?

were the colas refrigerated or room temperature?

what did you drink from, a can? a plastic bottle? a plastic cup? a glass cup?

what was your preferred beverage, coke or pepsi, before the start of your test?

did your preference change after the test?

did anyone else participate in this test, and if so, what were their reactions?

do you drink colas regularly, or is this an infrequent treat?

thank you

No.

No. I didn't have somebody else to keep track of which was which at the end if I did it blind.

Refrigerated.

Plastic bottles.

I never had a preference of flavours, but would usually opt for Coke over Pepsi. This is because I found it obnoxious how a lot of Pepsi advertising would take shots at Coke and attempt to look like the "cool cola," whereas Coke never said a word about Pepsi and just focused on being Coke. Look, I'm willing to give money to corporations that steal water from poor communities in the Global South, but I draw the line at being a smarmy dick.

After the taste test, I still have no preference, and I think it depends on which one I'm in the mood for. But they are similar enough that I would not care if I wanted one, but the establishment I was in only had the other. But this is all moot, as cola is not my favourite type of soda pop anyway, and I'm much more likely to get a grapefruit soda pop like Fresca, root beer, or cream soda.

No one else participated in the test. My roommates were all doing other things.

I used to rarely drink soda, but I've started buying a lot more diet pop than I used to in order to satisfy sweet cravings when I don't want the calories. It's not a great substitute when I have candy or pastry cravings, but it's something, and the carbonation makes me feel full for a while.

Oh yeah, I should mention that it was Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi that I compared. I almost exclusively drink diet soda pop.

thank you for answering all of my questions. i've got to be honest, now having this context, it seems less like a proper A/B test and more like, "i bought two colas and drank them both!"

all the same - appreciate the effort and willingness to share - thanks!

Yeah, an A/B test would require that I test the colas on different experimental groups and see how their reactions are different from each other.

I just thought this was a funnier title.
