I'll assume marketing is not your cup of tea. I'll walk youthrough it.
Both Coke and Pepsi have what's called brand loyal consumers. Ifyou are a loyal Pepsi drinker and Coke offers a Vanilla you mayor may not try it. If you try it and repeatedly like it becauseof the added flavor, Pepsi lost one of its hard-core consumers.Now, if Pepsi "Copies" Coke with this Vanilla flavor,then its loyal consumers will remain loyal to Pepsi. It is wiseto keep its consumers for switching.Further, Coke is NO industry leader. Take PowerAde, its nothingmore than a mere ripoff of Gatorade. How about Mr Pibb? Ripoffof Dr Pepper. Sprite? Ripoff of 7up. Point taken?
Marketing, brand-loyalty, la dee da. I have disdain for all ofhumanity's energy and resources wasted on that claptrap. And I'mfully aware that I speak with total hypocrisy. (He types, on hisMacintosh keyboard which one day will be pried from his cold,dead, fingers.)
almost no fizz - fizz suxorz!
you suxorz, stop trying to shift the suxorz onto someone else...
Looking at this thread reminds me I am yet to try Brisk andSnapple. I haven't seen either in any supermarkets yet (andplease hit me, I've been scouring the aisles for them...). Anyidea if they're shipped out of Canadia, Moofin?
Snapple was bought by Cadbury Schweppes in 2000. I alwaysthought Snapple originated in New York. But, I'm sure it'sbottled in Canada too. I don't know where you guys would get itfrom.Lipton Brisk is owned by Unilever (!) and is in partnership withPepsi to distribute their products. I'm not a big fan of it, Ithink it tastes too artificial -- that acid they add reallyclaws at the throat. But, I don't mind the flavoured varieties.So, I don't know if Austrilia would get the goods from Canadiaor not, but I'm surprised you can't find them :)
you're just mad cause your Canadian Mountain Dew has NOcaffeine! The horror! That's like Myth without Blood! Egads!
Thanks to Diet Coke with....Lime.Who's tasted it? What do you think?
All you little fuckers that say pepsi is beter than coke should let your balls drop and grow a little hair on them. pepsi is for all the gay fuckers who can go near a girl without getting wood so if you have a problem then tell your mom cause i am sure you still live with her
Whoo!I find it just a wee bit foul. It tastes okay going down, butthe aftertastes of the diet coke and lime don't really jivewell.
Skunky! That's the proper word.It tastes kind of skunky! Just like beer from an old keg goingthrough taps that haven't been cleaned in a little too long.That's what the aftertastes jive to make--a similar sort offlavor modification, although with a dramatically differentstarting flavor point, as skunky beer.
