Diet Pepsi! I live on it, but can't STAND diet coke. Isn't that weird - because I can drink regular Coke - but diet coke just makes me shudder.

Thumbs up Diet Pepsi

For me, it's Diet Pepsi. I find the taste much more refreshing than Diet Coke--although I will drink Diet Coke if it's the only thing available and I feel like having a glass of soda.

I've been reading all this material regarding how bad diet beverages are, and for that reason, I'm gradually weaning myself off diet soda and trying to drink water, juices or tea instead.

I love Diet Coke, Diet Mt. Dew, Diet Sunkist, Diet Dr. Pepper, and especially Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper. If you are trying to avoid everything thats bad for you, good luck!

Pepsi is a Northern thing.. in Michigan they drink lots of pepsi..
However soda's are not good for you and diet drinks are even worse..they have done studies and say people should not drink diet sodas specially if they are trying to lose weight. Drink Juice or Water its healthier, or even Tea is better than soda's. I know it is hard to get off the soda kick.. been there done that,.. need a coke once in a while just to know Im still alive

Found this is an article...Researchers took a closer look at their data, they found that nearly all the obesity risk from soft drinks came from diet sodas. "There was a 41% increase in risk of being overweight for every can or bottle of diet soda a person consumes each day," according to Fowler. For diet soda drinkers who consumed 2 cans, or 24 ounces of diet soda per day, the risk of being overweight or obese was 57% higher.
Wait...that data says fat people are drinking diet soda. Isn't that who it is made for?Maybe it is not not a requisite...but simply a reaction.

LOL, You've got that right! Give someone a Pepsi around here and they will give it back to you and say "do you have any real soda?".

Pepsi is better than coke, but diet coke stomps diet pepsi in taste. coke zero is also good.

My personal fave is Diet Coke. I will NOT drink Diet Pepsi. The flavor is off to me and it gets flat super fast. I can leave an open can of Diet Coke in the fridge and it is still carbonated the next day. I also prefer the plastic bottles to cans. They *seem* colder (which is a must, ice granules on the top is the best) and when you are prone to knocking things over like I am, bottles are safer.

Whooooa there. Try North Carolina. I think Pepsi was invented here. Everyone drinks it!

Actually, I don't like Pepsi, but I'm not originally from NC...
