    To me, Coke is more acidic and the flavors stand out. Pepsi seems syrupy and dulls the taste a bit.

    The biggest difference between Coke and Pepsi are their flavors; Coke has more of a vanilla-raisin flavor, while Pepsi has more of a citrus flavor. Because of this flavor difference, Coke goes down smoother than Pepsi.

    SWEETNESS

    SOURNESS

    SALTINESS

    BITTERNESS 

    SAVORINESS

    CATS can NOT taste sweetness   No soda for them

    for Humans  BITTERNESS is associated with signs of  poisons

    Pepsi is sweeter than Coke .. Coke is dryer and sharper.

    Janet has described it very well.

    Coke is ''lemon'' .. and Pepsi is ''orange''.

    No such a thing as a 'pepsi cokes' - the difference between Pepsi and Coke is quite significant. Different syrup, try them side by side sometime I have no idea how to describe the difference, but I like coke better as pepsi is just pure sweet.

    Pepsi when made with corn syrup tastes like backwashed coke. Pepsi real sugar tastes decent.
