I myself am still on the fence on this one. There are a lot of nasty unhealthy things said about both of these so currently I've been drinking a lot of juice ,water, and milk but I still find myself needing a caffeine jolt now and again so I'm just curious which one you folks prefer.
My mother once measured out the amount of sugar in a can of Coke, which is 39 grams. O_o I switched to Diet Coke after I learned I have an insulin problem, and now I've lost my taste for extreme sugar in many things I used to love; I can't drink regular Coke, it tastes disgusting. However artificial sweeteners can taste even worse, and I notice the artificial sweetener in Diet Coke gives me a headache if I don't have food along with the soda. So usually I drink a lot of tea and several cups of coffee every day. I love Peet's French roast. I drink diet soda usually with salty foods like popcorn. And on a hot day it really tastes great.
Why the fuck does it have to be one or the other?
I can't imagine a situation where I have to decide between soda or coffee.
No kidding, I might want a Soda as a refreshing beverage on a hot summer day, but I like a nice coffee after meals, or when I need the energy.
