Cola Clash: Epic battle between Coke and Pepsi

We all ask many questions in life but some can be answered and some cannot. “What is the meaning of life?”, “What is our purpose?” and “Did I leave the stove on?”. Although these are great and wonderful questions that we all ponder, I believe life’s greatest question is “Which is better, Coke or Pepsi?”. 

Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta, Georgia in 1886 by a doctor named John Pemberton and ever since then it has become an American icon that has become instantly recognizable all around the world. It’s tasty, bubbly, and refreshing; you just could never go wrong with a refreshing Coke! Now it is time to introduce the opponent, Pepsi-Cola. Pepsi-Cola was started in 1893 by a man named Caleb Bradham, who was also a doctor. Like Pemberton, he started mixing concoctions in his pharmacy store. Until he made a special mixture and started selling it to the market. The drink at the time was called “Brad’s Drink” but was later changed to Pepsi cola soon after it hit the market. It quickly became successful and became a lifetime competitor to Coca-Cola. 

To figure out the question on which soda is better I recently had a friend run a poll on social media to answer the question. The final score was with a total of 18 people voting for Pepsi Cola. And 25 people voted for Coca-Cola. Which makes Coca-Cola the most desired soda out of the pair. Which to be honest is not surprising to me. Even though our school does not offer Coca-Cola products at our school sadly, people still love it, and clearly so. But that doesn’t mean that Pepsi is not that liked. Many students here at Agua love Pepsi and some I would say are even addicted to it. However, studies show that one of the reasons why people choose Coke over Pepsi is because of the branding.

To be honest, who cares what drinks are better? They are both great selections of drinks on any occasion. For the students here at Agua Fria I think most people can say that Coca-Cola is the best soda.They might say that Pepsi is the superior drink who knows? But if you wanna do this fun experiment you just need a few things. You need the Sodas, and your lab rats, which could be your friends and just give them the drinks and just have a good time!

About the Contributor
Ivan Amador
Ivan Amador, News Reporter
Being fun creative and adventurous is a lot of things people want to have in a person, but when I met Ivan Amador, a News Reporter in Journalism, he fit that criteria for everyone. Being friends with Ivan can prove to you that it would be the greatest decision of your life. This guy has a lot of energy in order to keep the hype up for a group of people and friends. I think of Ivan when I interviewed him as a loyal man with definitely a lot of free will, that he is able to just live his life the way he wants to. When it comes to the future I definitely see that he would be the best news reporter in Journalism to bring energy and amazing work to the class.  Ivan loves lasagna, he finds it an incredible Italian food that he thinks “it’s impossible to mess up and it’s easy to make”. He finds it more of his favorite to the point where he would eat lasagna as his only meal for the rest of his life. To go along with that he also likes to add his favorite drink, which is a Hispanic drink called Fresca, he describes it like it was Sprite and Squirt mixed together and it’s delicious. Food is not the only thing interesting about him, he also is very charming when it comes to friends, he met one of his friends with one of his favorite songs called “Coming at Your Love” by Redbone, it was in a movie, and after the movie he met a brand new friend cause of it. Ivan also would love to have you as his friend, since he finds his friends as his favorite people because they reflect him too. Ivan’s interests are so expandable to the point where he listens to almost every piece of music he can, so a good man to talk to about artists and songs for sure. He was in a band and loved to perform, and it became the most memorable thing for him since he loved having the crowd cheer him on. Ivan is also a fan of the classics, leading him to have his favorite video game Black Ops 1, since it was very fun hanging with family as well as playing the game. His dream hangout is to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 3 since his friend was away at the time, and he deeply wanted to see it. That’s what makes Ivan great: he is fully committed to watching a movie with someone, to the point where he doesn’t watch it himself unless his friend watches it with him.  Most movies were listed, since apparently Ivan can’t seem to watch a show, cause it goes on for way too long, I don’t blame him, I feel the same way. He states his favorite show is “The Mandalorian”, but hasn’t seen the newest season, but however, he does like “Phineas and Ferb” and “The Simpsons”. I would assume he likes shows that reset everything after the episodes, which is honestly incredible, because keeping up with a story is way harder than watching one episode for one story. Along with his favorite show, he finds Monster Inc. to be his favorite movie, because he found it so funny for him. Also, another funny and favorite movie is “HeavyWeight”, mostly because Netflix at the time didn't have many options, and it was the only Disney film on Netflix during the time, but at least he enjoyed it. Along with a movie, Ivan would love to have In the Flesh by Pink Floyd as a theme song, when he lived his life, because the guitar part was amazing, and he found out also through a movie.
