Coca-Cola and Pepsi are long time rivals in the quest to dominate the carbonated soft drink industry. Facts and figures aside the two are both winners in their own right and people usually have a strong opinion about which has the better taste. The surveys you will need to answer to get the complementary gift card concern the question – which is your preferred soda and why?
Do you like Coca Cola?
Coca-Cola or Coke is produced by the Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, GA. The drink was invented by John Pemberton in the late 19th century (1886) initially as a patent medicine. Later the secret formula for the drink was sold to Asa Griggs Candler in 1892 and he went on to build the Coca-Cola Company as we know it today. Today it can be found in more than 200 countries and is considered the world’s most valuable brand. The Coca-Cola Company produces many varieties of the fizzy drink including Diet Coke, Cola Zero, Coca-Cola Vanilla and Coca-Cola Cherry.
The formula of Coca-Cola is famously kept a secret, but it includes carbonated water, sugar (about 10 teaspoons per 12fl ounce bottle), caffeine, phosphoric acid, caramel color and natural flavoring. The natural flavoring is what contains Coca-Cola’s secret formula.
Do you like Pepsi?
Pepsi is a cola drink manufactured by PepsiCo. The drink was first created in 1893 in North Carolina by Caleb Badham and marketed as Brad’s Drink. The drink was renamed Pepsi-Cola in 1898 after the pepsin enzyme and kola nuts which were used to make the drink. In 1961 it became simply Pepsi. The logo was changed several times over the years and they have often used catch phases emphasizing the drink is “made with real sugar” or “healthful.” The original intention was that the drink would give you an energy boost and aid digestion. After financial difficulties during WWI the company was sold to Charles Guth of Loft, Inc. He had his chemists formulate the Pepsi syrup formula. Funnily enough Guth offered to sell Pepsi to Cola on three occasions but they declined. Just think if Coca-Cola had bought Pepsi they would have eliminated their only real competitor.
Both Coca-Cola and Pepsi are loved by billions of people around the globe. Often a country favors one of the cola brands in particular due to political, economical or advertising issues. However the online survey is interested in your opinion and your soda preference. So if you would like a complementary gift card let them know what you like to drink.
