I just watched a show on the Food network last night that said that when Coke was introduced to China, they tried choose Chinese characters that would sound like the word "Coke" when they were pronounced. Unfortunately, the characters roughly translated to "bite the wax tadpole" and did not help sales. So they scrapped that idea and changed the characters to ones that translated to "happiness in the mouth", which did much better!

Pepsi I guess. Although I am starting to find them both kind of blah. Root Beer has always been my favorite beverage...

The one and only original Coke.

Man, I remember the New Coke back in the 80's. What a farce that was.

Coke here.

But I must thank the Pepsi Corp. for making the great green goodness known as Mt. Dew.

yeah you can do this at the coca-cola museum in atlanta as well. beverly is rather awful. i believe that's the bitter somethingorother (it was some fruit like grapefruit or ass, can't remember). it said it right on the label and the guide said "hey it's awful tasting, beware." people all flocked over to it. i couldn't bring myself to try any. but i did anyway and it was indeed awful. i ran back to the american fountain drinks and had a huge cupful of (caffeine free) coca-cola to get the taste out. ick!

btw, i voted coke. i don't drink soda that often though.
