Coke or Pepsi? Which drink is better?

coca-colaApril 23, 1985 – The most gutsy decision was made.

Coca Cola launched the New Coke. This replaced the original 99 year old formula. What they did was piss off all of the avid Coke drinkers. Many commented on the New Coke as tasting like 3 year old Pepsi.

All they did was instigate the biggest war in marketing history – The Cola War. And to say that Pepsi racked up is an understatement.

Who was winning the Cola War?

Coke had everyone beat by a long shot. Why did they do this? This was the biggest marketing blunder in history.

After losing many Coke drinkers to Pepsi, Coca Cola brought back the original formula on July 11, 1985, and called it Coca Cola Classic. But TOO LATE! The damage had been done.

When I saw Coke and Pepsi going after each other, I just laughed, and I decided,

The Hell with Both of them. I like RC better anyway.
