Top-selling sodas: Then vs. now
Diet Coke moved up to No. 2 behind Coke in 2010, knocking perennial contender Pepsi to No. 3. That's one of several surprising changes from 10 years earlier.

I started drinking Mt. Dew when Coke tried the New Coke thing in the 1980s. Been drinking it ever since. (Still greatly prefer Coke to Pepsi and can totally taste the difference). What gets me is that I've encountered several instances where Mt. Dew will run out at various stores. For some reason, even though it is as popular as it is (as evidenced by it's high ranking on this list and the fact that it runs out at the places I'm talking about) some stores don't seem to keep it stocked up. It might even be higher if it were stocked better. I wonder too if someone at Pepsi realizes that they could have an even bigger brand if they'd just push Mt. Dew over Pepsi. That might mean that Dew would outsell Pepsi and that makes people at Pepsi feel bad because the company is called Pepsi, but so what. Sell what people want.
Also, I've seen caffine free Diet Dew. If they'd sell caffine free regular Mt. Dew, I'd buy it more often. I try not to drink caffine in the evenings.
dafrog...6 sodas a day and you are complaining about aspartame poisoning!? Here is some advise DONT DRINK SODA! For an occasional treat its ok, but 6 is just disgusting, are you a child? have you any self control?
...dafrog....no wonder you felt like sh--.....12 cans of diet soda every day !!!!! ARE YOU NUTS ???
I dont think it was the aspartame...you just drank the stuff like a whale !!
I wish that Dr Pepper had delivered my at birth. I wish that Dr Pepper could be sued for malpractice just so that I could defend him in court. I wish that I was a nurse so that I could assist Dr Pepper while he operates on dafrog.
This, my friends, is how much I love Dr Pepper.
Gave up Soda a few years ago (corn syrup was making us sick) then tried the "throwback" and the all natural sierra mist. We splurge on Friday nights and have soda again. It is nice, but wow can you taste the difference from the sugar soda vs. the high fructose corn syrup soda!
Dr. P is king in my book, but if I must have a cola I will always choose Pepsi over Coke unless you are getting CocaCola in the small bottles. For some strange reason it always tastes better in those small bottles. Someone asked the question about TEEM. TEEM was Pepsi's attempt to compete with Sprite several year's back.
Dr. Pepper and It's "I'm a Pepper, you're a Pepper, wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too" takes me back to my late teens and early 20's. I've been a Dr. P lover for over 40 years now.
Speaking of the oldies...RC Cola (Royal Crown) is still out there, but nothing like it once was. And who could forget Pepsi's intro of a soft drink that had the slogan "It'll tickel your innards...that good ole Mountain Dew." It almost crashed because of this entrance, but today MD rules for many.
...wastewater treatment has little effect on sucralose, which is present in wastewater effluents...i.e. - It does NOT easily break down. Kind of like dioxin...
we all know coke is and always will be #1.why because your parents grand parents great grandparents made it that way. This day and age who cares about #2 we all want to be #1
i have drank coke for 60 plus years. tried them all but always came back home. Think about it we all have different taste in things but we only want the best for ourselves and our families
