I want Pepsi to ditch their smiles.

Given the current trend of simple, flat design, this older Pepsi logo could actually work great today.

Maybe update the font a bit, but otherwise, it's pretty good.

Coke vs Pepsi is regional too. Northwest is Pepsi by a mile. I worked for them for 5 years and we outsold Coke 4 to 1 on a regular basis. But I'll say without Mountain Dew, Pepsi would have probably died a while ago.

Pepsi owns Quebec because historically, Pepsi was cheaper and Quebec was poor. They do a lot of very sentimental advertising in Quebec to this day, like riffing on Moving Day, eating poutine, being cold, and, uh, driving crappy cars, I guess?:

Though ironically, the music in that spot is "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity" by Gustav Holst, about as English a piece of music as there's ever been. Womp womp.

I've seen the belly one before lots of times, but the bending over butt-crack one is new to me!

Never been a big fan of the Pepsi smile either.

For those of you who have compared Coke products with Pepsi products, I might as well chime in:

Regular Coca-Cola is widely considered a masterpiece, but Cherry Vanilla Coke from the Freestyle systems and a splash of Coke with Dr Pepper ("Black Gold") taste even better.

With respect to Pepsi, regular is very flavorful and goes pretty good with food. Pepsi Next is pretty neat, and I would consider that to be comparable to store brand colas.

I love Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero from a Freestyle machine. I drink massive amounts any time I am at a restaurant with one.

I want Pepsi to go in the trash.

Back when I drank soft drinks, if a restaurant I went to offered Pepsi as a substitute for Coke, I would just get a water.

Both Pepsi & PNext are very good cold. Gotta drink them with a chilled glass or straight out of the fridge.

Coke is more forgiving if it loses a chill.

Good call. Too sickly sweet.

Coke all the way. Pepsi makes me gassy and feel gross. Except for Pepsi Lime, love that stuff.

My favorite soda rankings sees Pepsi coming out on top, though. So they got that going for them.

1. Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi

(a distant #) 2. Cherry Coke Zero

3. Diet Pepsi

4. Diet Coke

5. Pepsi Next

I always thought they were the same, I thought it was silly when people did this (10+ years in the restaurant industry), I told myself I'd never be that person.

If the restaurant doesn't have Diet Coke or Diet Mountain Dew, I get water. I often weigh food options on whether or not I know they have Coke instead of Pepsi.

I'm ashamed of myself.

See I'm the opposite. If Coke sits around for a while and starts to fizz out, it gets flat and undrinkable. I usually buy soda in 2L bottles and it takes me 3 or 4 days to finish one. Pepsi still has flavor in the last glass, Coke usually doesn't.

I use to drink Pepsi all the time. For some reason, with this last logo change, it tasted differently to me. Now.....I am a Coke addict. :boogie:
