Moving Thoughts Friday


















Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.











It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.





Coke or Pepsi?


*I’m going to be offline for the better part of next week except my Alley post next Thurs.

  1. I can do Diet Coke, but I really prefer Dr. Pepper. What can I say? I'm a Texas girl!

  2. Hmm...they're both good. But I've had some serious cravings for regular Coke this week. :-)

    (Hope you had a nice 4th)

  3. Coke! Let me put my emphasis on COKE!

  4. Anne took my answer. :p I don't drink full-sugar sodas anymore, anyway. I prefer Coke Zero (or store-brand equivalent) over other diet sodas.

  5. I have to ponder this......

    Hmmmm.....

    Pepsi is good from the fountain. But only from the fountain. Have you ever noticed that? It's the same drink, right? So I just don't get it. Why, when it goes inside a can, does it turn all nasty?

    Coke on the other hand...doesn't have the fountain vs. can conundrum. BUT it does have this weird thing where regular Coke is gross, but Diet Coke is amazing.

    See....this is no easy question to answer.

    Yet, I always buy Diet Coke for my refrigerator. Would never, ever buy Pepsi. Unless I could somehow buy a fountain and drink from that.

    I shall go look at eBay now.

    A very deep question for a Friday morning, Wendy. ;)

  6. I prefer Coke over Pepsi. Diet Pepsi over diet Coke. Coke zero over either.

    But diet A&W over all! :) Have a great weekend.

  7. Hmmm, maybe Coke? I don't drink sodas anymore, just iced tea and waters.

  8. Morning Wendy,

    I'm not really a soda girl. Personally I think Coke and Pepsi taste exactly the same so I'm fine with either...although I usually choose Root Beer. :)

  9. Coke. Especially if it's vanilla coke. That stuff helped keep me awake through my first year with my first kid, who did not sleep. (This was before I drank coffee. My son was up every two hours until he was ten months old.) THEN THEY RETIRED IT. D: And then brought it back. :D

  10. Pepsi! Because that's how I was raised! Also, Coke gets a lot of bad press. However, the things that apply to Coke could probably apply to Pepsi as well, as I'm sure they're not that much different.

  12. I'm a Coke girl, but I just read this article about how the caramel coloring in dark sodas is a carcinogen that causes cancer. I haven't had a sip since!!! lol I'm very impressionable!

  13. A root beer float is just about the only soda I would drink if I had to. Hugs :O)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Coke. Why? It tastes better to me. I like the formula.

    And you?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Coke. Preferably diet. And as Jeanette asked, which do you prefer?

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Either/or. Doesn't really matter to me as long as caffeine is involved. :)

  17. Wendy:
    I am the odd person out here. I liked both until I couldn't drink either. I have issues with caffiene- it robs me of my sleep and causes a couple of other side effects.
    I like A&W Root Beer or Mug Root Beer. Also CANADA DRY Ginger Ale.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Neither.

    I very seldom drink pop (that's what we call in NW PA), but when I do, it's Sprite or other clear pop. No diet. I hate artificial sweetener. I'm a skim milk, iced green tea, and water girl.

  19. Diet Coke and addicted and so trying to get FREE

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, neither. I strongly dislike colas. How about ginger ale? Or grape soda? :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can I have a root beer instead?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Coke. It's not as sweet to me as Pepsi.

    I don't do diet. That's worst than sugar in my opinion because it messes with metabolism. We all need ours to work :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Coke, but I'll drink Pepsi. Hubby won't drink Pepsi.

    Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Coke. Pepsi is too sweet. Coke with crushed ice is the best. I'll drink Coke any time, all the time--but when I'm stressed--watch out! I'm chugging it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Diet Coke. Well, actually, Diet Dr. Pepper, but that wasn't a choice, so ... Diet Coke. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Neither. When I do drink soda, it's usually orange, root beer, or Sprite and always caffeine free. I prefer water, milk, or iced tea.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I gave up caffeinated sodas years ago, but when I did drink them my favorite was Mr. Pibb.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Always and only Coke. Anything else makes me shudder. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Coke. And more specifically, Diet Coke. Although, I only had the option of Coke made with real cane sugar while in Haiti. It tasted different from Coke in the states. Much better, actually.

  30. Water. :) I've never been a fan of carbonation.
