Sure, not everyone's a fan of cola, but serious soda drinkers do NOT mess around with their poison of choice. Coke drinkers sneer at Pepsi, Pepsi drinkers scoff at Coke, and RC Cola diehards are very weird folk you tend to only find in Georgia. Given all these hard opinions, we decided to conduct a blind taste-test of nine colas with 10 volunteers from our office. Snap on your safety goggles before proceeding.
Coke and Pepsi may be the best-selling sodas from our roster, but given its cult status, we're expecting a strong showing from that spunky upstart Mexican Coke. Perhaps one of the wild cards, like Curiosity Cola, will shock its way into the top three based on novelty alone. But the off-brand grocery store picks will likely be duking it out for the bottom spots, with Coke and Pepsi landing somewhere in the middle.
