An other American symbol.
Maybe the weapon-indurstry should take Coca Cola's lead and produce the bullet-free-gun?

Coke. Pepsi is revolting.
Revolting?

What, throwing off the shackles of bourgeoisie oppression, brandishing pitchforks while marching on the local Schloss, and guillotining nobility?

I love you, you overreactive EF lot! So much emotion and visuals.

I know Coke is Xmas and all for loads of people, I think our home is split between Coke and Pepsi, too, I still prefer warm home drinks in the fall/winter seasons. French hot chocolate (no dairy, no cream) these days with orange and cinnamon. Pop/soda is more summer stuff. Although not for us either, I don't do ice cream, non plus. It's all sticky and kiddie business.

I also think Pepsi in EE is less sweet, it gets sweeter going West.

They don't need Coke for that some areas...enough lead in tap water.

Re: Pepsi

Buy a bottle of Coke. Put more sugar in it (at least a cup). Voila! Pepsi!

Re: Pepsi

Based on the latest EF-Coke-news I bought a new Coke zero zucker.
The zero zucker is actually written in German, LOL. And in French. Not in Italian and more interesting: Not in English.

However it smells as if they added lemon (the best killer for your teeth is the combination of Coke and Lemon, nothing beats that ).
The taste is watery, sweet like hell (yeah, I know, strange thing to complain about re Coke) and - like the disgusting Cola Light - one can taste the artificial sugar.
It's gross. They lost one customer. Actually I'm grateful, what an easy way to stop a bad habit

Re: Pepsi

If I have to choose: Pepsi.
Though I rarely drink any of them nowadays. But a cold Pepsi (the small bottle) was my usual treat moons ago. (and thankfully, it didn't ruin my teeth)


The 2 l or 2,5 l bottles spoil all the fun.

Re: Pepsi

Hehe... the forever Coke v. Pepsi debate

I'm a coca-cola girl all the way. Gave it up for months then recently got one to "quench the thirst"..... YUM! Refreshing and delicious.... and of course now having a hard time giving it up again, hehe :P

But yes, I have seen Pepsi in Migros and Lidl.. hope the OP managed to find some.

Re: Pepsi

I hate it that KFC serves Pepsi and not coke. Ruins a perfectly good restaurant.

Re: Pepsi

I have seen it around, not as ubiquitous as coca-cola but usually available in larger shops. I personally prefer pepsi, but don't drink either often enough to be bothered.

Re: Pepsi

EXACTLY! I have the feeling that the glass preserves MUCH better the taste than the plastic ones...

Also, havent seen Pepsi since I came here...

Not in Migros... Not in the COOP, not in Denner.... maybe in the Manor?

Yes, someone understands me! Also it feels like you can appreciate the content of a bottle a bit more...

I will try the Lidl, since the Denner I visit it quite often and I havent seen it... its so strange here, some days they have some things, the next ones, they have different... same happen with the Ginger Ale, some times they have, some others they just simply dont know if they are ever going to have again...
