Pepsi or Coke in a restraunt .... does it matter to you? Would you rather have something other than COLA if they don't have your brand of choice?

I've worked in restraunts for years, and this always drives me crazy; Someone ordes a Coke, and when I tell them we have Pepsi, they chage their mind and would rather have Tea or water. Or the other way around (ask for a Pepsi but if the place has Coke they would rather go without) Me... I don't care... a COLA is a COLA, so what's the big deal? Would you rather have something other than Cola if they don't have your brand of choice? OR would you be upset if you ordered a Coke and the server brought you a Pepsi (and vice-versa)?

  • well, they ARE different and I know most people have a definite preference. I personally like them both so whichever is available is A-OK with me.

  • I agree, they are very different, and if the place I go doesn't have Pepsi then I'll order a Mr. Pibb or Dr. Pepper lol! But actually I don't really order sodas at restaurants, I usually get a beer.

  • I like fountain coke but drink Pepsi in cans or bottles.

    If they have fountain Pepsi, I order tea or lemonade. If they have canned coke products, I order tea.

    I can tell the difference in them. I say Coke and they bring Pepsi without telling me, yes I get upset and make them take it back.

  • There is a difference in taste. I personally usually don't drink soda, but hubby prefers Pepsi. If they don't have pepsi, he won't take a coke, but he will order a different coke product like Sprite or something.

  • there is actually a big difference between Pepsi and Coke and I never realized it until I was pregnant LOL. I like them both, but I usually order a Dr. Pepper.

  • If it's not Coke...I order Mt. Dew or Dr. Pepper. I don't like Pepsi at all so I'd rather have something other than Cola if they don't have my brand.

  • I'm one of those people! If I ask for a coke, I really want a coke. I don't like how pepsi tastes. Although I did hear they are going to put out a limited edition of the original pepsi made w/ cane sugar instead of corn syrup. I can't wait to try that bc I bet it is delicious!

  • Haha, my SIL is like this. She LOVES Diet Coke and refuses to drink Diet Pepsi. I know some people say there is a taste difference, but I can't tell ... but then again, I rarely drink soda.

  • They taste different, but I like both. I went off colas, though, since I read that the phosphorus in them interferes with calcium and is therefore bad for the bones. So I usually ask for water or lemonade or decaf coffee.
