Coke or Pepsi

I read a fascinating study regarding soft drinks the other day. When asked which beverage they prefer, roughly 70% of people choose Coke. But, in a blind taste test, over 53% of people prefer Pepsi. This is fascinating to me. Is advertising that powerful? Is Coke that much 'cooler' to like? Pepsi's the most popular drink on the market and no one will stick up for it. Who me? Nah, I like Coke. I'm not a girl.

Who did they give the taste test too, infants? How have all these people not become accustomed to the different tastes of Coke and Pepsi? I could tell them apart with 99% of my taste buds shut down. Coke is for the druggies.

I wasn't aware that drinking coke can uphold a tough guy image. Beer maybe.
