#81

I don’t drink a lot of soda but I do like Pepsi Max on rare occasions.


#82

Anime has taught me that Pepsi is better.

I was sure Todd would have a Cracked article about this.

#88

Wait now you are fake Tim!

My face isn’t that weird. Here is me. I may or may not be in the bathroom at a punk show.


#89

Who’s playing?


#90

First time at the glory hole?


#91

Nobody famous. A longtime friend of mine is headlining a trans punk night in Brooklyn.


#92

Cool.


#93

I can taste the difference (as a kid though, I also used to be able to tell different coloured Smarties by taste alone, so …)

Pepsi Max > Coke Zero

Ronnie is right though:

(My fridge at work is full of these)


#94

What is extra about the XTRA version?


#95

I presume from the small text that it’s a zero sugar version like Coke Zero.


#96

Looks like it:


#97

Yeah, it’s their updated sugar-free version, the equivalent of Pepsi Max or Coke Zero, compared to Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke. Tastes more like the original, no calories.


#98

I can sometimes get the zero sugar version which is different to that.

It could be the ‘manly’ version which I believe was the main reason for Coke Zero, a lot of men didn’t want to buy ‘diet’ drinks.

Edit: Okay Mike answered that as I was typing. :smile:

The last time I was in Edinburgh I spotted a WH Smith’s in the airport which had a wall dedicated just to Irn Bru.

Thanks for clarifying that while I was asleep, Lorcan. I had assumed everyone knew how to read column headings and to compare the per 100ml listings. The Coke nutrition is off a large bottle rather than a can, which is why it has a 250ml serving rather than 330ml.

And much like Dave, I don’t drink San Pellegrino because it has less sugar and I think it’s therefore healthier or anything, it’s just a nice, equally (un)healthy, alternative to cola.
