We’ve all talked about this one, at least once, over the years. The question, itself, is a classic that’s divided friends and families for decades. Now, after billions of casual taste tests, we have a definitive answer to the iconic conundrum surrounding the difference between Coke and Pepsi.
Which do you prefer? Coke or Pepsi? It may, in the end, depend on whether you prefer a smooth, late-onset flavour experience or an up-front citrus zing.
The clinical difference is just what I’ve been saying for years – Coke has a more Vanilla/Raisin flavour profile while Pepsi has a higher-pitched Citrus flavour. Simple as that. Malcolm Gladwell, in his book, Blink: The Power Of Thinking Without Thinking, nailed it back in 2007. But people, it seems, just won’t won’t let it go.
Just look at the Ingredients list on a can of Each. You’ll see that they’re almost identical, except that Pepsi has the Citrus component.
That’s all I have on this. And that’s all that any of us should need.
Go forth and enjoy the cola of your choice!
