Coke w/rum ( which I assume is only sold in the U.P.)  8)

Ahh Rum and Coke's are what we call it here in Chicago. Haven't had a good one of those in a long time. I take it in the U.P. they sell it as a mix drink in liqour stores?

Morgbug: In Canuckia Dr. Pepper is bottled by Pepsi? Interesting, since Dr. P is produced by the same company that makes 7-UP, which is definitely not a part of the Pepsi Company.

Always, Coca-Cola

Gotta go with Coke (Classic), though I despise Diet Coke.

Coke  (prefer fountain Coke, but cans and bottles are good too.  Especially the Coca Cola from Mexico, yummy)

To answer other questions in the thread...every carbonated beverage is a "Coke" to me. Never even heard it called "Soda", "Pop", "Cola"  or "Carbonated" till college.

Coke is it.

I also prefer Sprite to 7-Up

But I like Mug Rootbeer.

I'll drink Mug, but I really like Barqs though it's not always as available.

I'd sooner drink "Orange Crush" than "Pepsi".

Before I stopped drinking carbonated drinks I would have to say that Pepsi was my all time favorite.  It was sweeter than Coke IMO. 

I used to say pop when I refered to anything carbonated (pepsi, coke, mountain dew, etc) but when I moved to the south nobody knew what I meant and they always referred to it as Coke even though there are different flavors.  So, needless to say I call it soda pop every now and then.

Coke gives me heartburn. Yet I can drink Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper without getting that feeling. Odd. ???

Morgbug: In Canuckia Dr. Pepper is bottled by Pepsi? Interesting, since Dr. P is produced by the same company that makes 7-UP, which is definitely not a part of the Pepsi Company.

The two largest Pepsi bottlers in North America are The Pepsi Bottling Group and PepsiAmericas, togther they are responsible for about 85% of the Pepsi sold in the USA and Canada.

Both of these companies also bottle for the Dr.Pepper/7-Up company as well, which is why you ofter see one of the other's name on the bottles.

PepsiCo, Inc. holds approximately 43.7 percent equity interest in The Pepsi Bottling Group.
PepsiCo, Inc. holds approximately 41.4 percent equity interest in PepsiAmericas.

So, while PepsiCo doesn't actually own 7-Up/Dr. Pepper, they do own a HUGE percent of the companies that bottle and sell those products.



As for me, I like Coke.

If I go to a restaurant and order a Coke and the waitress says "Is Pepsi OK?"  I'm a big enough jerk to say "no it isn't" and then I often go for a root beer instead of drinking Pepsi...  :P
