    Hi Peeps!
    I'm in Korea for holidays and found out that Korea only uses Pepsi as diet coke!
    I wonder which is better? Help me decide! :D

    Do your own taste test. Manufacturers often hate blind taste tests because they tend to prove the manufacturer's product is not the best tasting. A blind test will tell you what tastes better. I recall when 60 Minutes went to Scotland to do a scotch taste test. As I recall, the favorite of all these noble scotch drinkers was the Japanese scotch manufacturered by Japan's Suntory. Imagine that . . . scotch made in Japan tasted better than scotch made in Scotland.

    I say Coke rules the pile of wanna be soft drinks so my vote is good old Coke. Stay out of any country that does not offer Coke.

    That said, I am confused when you say, "Korea only uses Pepsi as diet coke!" Huh? I do not understand your statement. Are you saying Korea only offers Pepsi rather than Diet Coke? Clarify.

    I would really like to know who the tasters were on 60 minutes. There is a massive difference between malt and blended whiskies. Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola also taste different but they all taste great with a JD. I do love my sour mash and bourbon but I love Irish & malt whiskies. As long as there is plenty of JD in Korea, I would be happy with any cola mixer ;)
    BTW, Bob, you are spot on when you say do your own taste test. Good advice!

    From the health point of view, I'd recommend you stay away from diet drinks. Aspartame is bad for your health. Sugar is better.
