Why, that's one of the hallmarks of the Internet! :mrgreen:


Heh, true enough.

It definitely seems true. Nothing has any real weight over anything else -- the same zeal can be shoved into Pepsi appreciation that is foisted upon Citizen Kane's merits. And why not? Stuffy appreciation for The Great Movies can be unbearably boring but sipping the sweet nectar of Mother Pepsico's loving nipples can be a nice antidote.

And thus concludes the worst post I've ever submitted.

Not necessarily. I think Mother Pepsico's Loving Nipples would make for a great band name, kind of a throwback band like Big Brother and the Holding Company.

And therein lies the perfect example of post-modernism...

Of course, that would mean that I am talking about talking about Pepsi...

Erik ;)

p.s. Going back to the original topic, having now consumed a case of the stuff, I don't think it's placebo effect. The use of sugar vs. syrup produces a more consistent and immediate taste. Syrup coats the tongue; sugar dissolves.

When it comes to dark colas, I'm definitely partial to Pepsi. I first tasted Throwback a couple nights ago. Not bad, but it was... how shall I say... disappointingly Coke-like.

I tried Mtn. Dew throwback today. It was okay at first, but it doesn't seem to have the same bite that normal Mtn. Dew has.
I liked the flavor alright, but it tasted almost bland, as if it was just a sweet drink and not the unique flavor that I have come to associate with Mtn. Dew.

That's a good description of my reaction to the Pepsi, actually. It's not that it's bad. It's just not what I expect something with "Pepsi" on the side to taste like.

I lived in Holland for quite a few years of my life, and always hated drinking soda here in the US when I would come home...I made the realization in High School that the stuff in Holland used sugar instead of HFCS which is why it tasted so much better! Plus Fanta rocks in europe...it's not orange soda, it's almost like carbonated orange juice...mmm...anyways, I hope more companies rebadge their european product and sell it here lol.
