    It's analogous to the difference between Boudain and Haggis.

    The taste and the amount of carbonation is different, but other than that, they're both the same.

    research found that consumers could not tell the difference in flavor at all in a blind taste test. technically speaking, there is a very small difference in sweetness and acidity between the two, with pepsi supposedly being slightly sweeter and more acidic.
    last bit of trivia is that one time Coke sought to differentiate themselves by trying to optimize the generic coca-cola recipe, which test groups did perceive as an improvement. upon launching this new line however, it got boycotted to shit for not being 'classic' tasting and the company had to go on an insane PR campaign to fix the reputation

    tl;dr, the actual difference is almost entirely in their marketing and the flavor might as well be the same

      Then consumers are fucking stupid, because the texture is entirely different.

      this is something that was parroted by those factoid of the day websites and people just rolled with it, I don't think it has any base in reality and even if it does I refuse to accept it.

      This was true for "New Coke" but not for "Old Coke" or "New Old Coke".
      In the Pepsi Challenge, the ratio of people preferring Pepsi to Coca Cola was roughly 3:1. Before complaints about using a TV commercial as evidence, the Pepsi Challenge was extremely widespread, during that era you could hardly go to a mall or shopping center without finding a Pepsi Challenge booth set up outside, the TV spots were mostly effective because they alerted people to what those Pepsi Challenge booths were about, the mass conversion of people from Coca Cola to Pepsi (and there was a mass conversion) was due to people taking the Pepsi Challenge by themselves and discovering they preferred Pepsi.
      Coca Cola ran some tests themselves and discovered that the Pepsi Challenge preference results were genuine, but what they also discovered is that the results differed depending on the order that the two drinks were served - the Pepsi Challenge was a blind test, but not a double-blind test. But double-blind testing by Coca Cola still showed a slight preference towards Pepsi which was at this point rapidly catching up to Coca Cola in market share. Hence New Coke, it made two significant changes to the time tested recipe; firstly, it replace the cane sugar with corn sugar (as was used by Pepsi) giving it a silkier mouthfeel; secondly the sweetness was increased to be slightly sweeter than Pepsi, as this was determined to be the primary reason for the Pepsi preference.

        Needless to say, New Coke turned out to be a disaster, Pepsi had by this point already captured the market of people preferring extremely sweet drinks, so New Coke was left to suffer mass (and very angry) rejection by people who preferred their cola less sweet and more tart and crisp. New Old Coke was the result; it kept the corn syrup and had a sweetness level slightly higher than Old Coke, somewhat reducing the Pepsi preference while mostly mollifying the adherents to Old Coke. This also meant that it had a similar oily mouthfeel as Pepsi.
        Back to the issue "could not tell the difference", that was mostly because it's difficult for a human to detect absolute levels of sweetness with any accuracy, taste something extremely sweet then try something less sweet, and the second one may taste almost like there's no sugar in it at all. The dead giveaway in the Pepsi Challenge was mouthfeel, Pepsi was less carbonated and was sweetened with corn syrup giving it a smoother, almost oily or silky mouthfeel, whereas Coca Cola had a crisp almost crunchy mouthfeel with no oiliness.

        The thing about the Pepsi challenge is that you take one drink of one and one of the other. For a small taste, most people are going to prefer the sweeter one. Over the long term this doesn't hold up.

          Yes this is what caused the difference in results based on the drink order; the strongest results occurred when the order was Pepsi then Coke, the Pepsi tasted sweet, then the following taste of Coca Cola tasted harsh and bitter. Reversing the order resulted in both the Coke and the Pepsi tasting sweet, and the results were more balanced. But in double blind tests with randomized order, Pepsi consistently came out on top in nearly every geographical and demographic sector of the US.
          >over the long term this doesn't hold up.
          The shift in market between Coca Cola and Pepsi happened immediately, and has largely endured for 40 years. A very great many people, having discovered during their own pepsi challenge that they preferred the sweeter drink, stayed with it forever. I'm an oldfag and took the Pepsi Challenge myself; though I immediately recognized the difference in mouthfeel between the two drinks. Several cousins and uncles switched to Pepsi and stayed switched.

        The Pepsi challenge was small samples, basically sips. That's not how people drink colas. The results completely reversed when people were allowed to drink an entire normal serving, like an entire can.
        In the end, people preferred Coke but Pepsi started undercutting Coke on price and there were plenty of consumers who might like Coke more but not enough more to buy it when it was more expensive than Pepsi. These days the two are usually similar in price though both will frequently run sales. People looking for low prices have long moved on to store brand colas that are much cheaper than the big two brand.

          Yes I was there.
          >Pepsi started undercutting Coke on price
          Pepsi had always been undercutting Coke on price; that didn't move market share the way the Pepsi Challenge did.
          >an entire can
          Only if they were only allowed to drink the can and have nothing else with it. As soon as something else was introduced, chips, peanuts, a candy bar, a bologna sandwich - anything at all, their original preference reasserted itself, which is why Pepsi retained their newly enlarged customer base.
          In the end, Coca Cola threw in the towel, both New Coke and New Old Coke were noticeably sweeter than Old Coke, and the cost savings from switching to HFCS allowed Coke to compete on price with Pepsi.

          I never liked Coke. It tastes weird. Pepsi for me. Oddly, all Coca Cola products other than Coke itself are better than the Pepsi ones except Mello Yello. Cherry Coke is better than Cherry Pepsi. Sprite is better than whatever the Pepsi lemon/lime soda wants to be called now (srsly, it's like a fucking tranny with all this constant name change bullshit), although cranberry Sierra Mist was tops.

      pepsi for me instantly stands out. it's got this cloying flavor that reminds me of medicine. If a restaurant brings me pepsi instead of coke it's nearly the equivalent of bringing me a diet coke instead of a real coke with how stark the taste difference is.

    They have been bending both of their recipes to be closer to each others' for the past 20 years
    They really are practically identical
    If you want to get technical Coke has lemon and orange while Pepsi is orange only
    Both have adopted very cinnamon- and cardamom-forward flavor profiles and that sucks
    I wish I could just get 80s Pepsi again, they did a Throwback a decade ago and I thought it was gonna be for good
    Real Sugar Pepsi is just regular today Pepsi

    Buy RC Cola instead
