So Giantbomb user, JJWeatherman, and I have been arguing and debating for DAYS about which soda is better out of two:
Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew.
I’m of the mindset that Dr. Pepper is worlds superior to Mountain Dew and I find that stuff to be revolting and absolutely gross.
Whereas JJGallupman thinks it is top tier.
He also calls generic fizzy drinks by “soda.” Which is really weird to me, it’s always been “pop.” But anyways!
That’s not what is important here, out of these two drinks (if you can even call Mountain Dew a drink, ew!) which is the preferred one here?
UPDATE: You know what you can do with Dr. Pepper that you can't with Mountain Dew?
Make delicious floats. Even RichGallupIsAWeatherman agrees there.
Dr. Pepper floats are only second to root beer floats. Mountain Dew doesn't even compare!
Sparklykiss: You know what you can do easily with Dr. Pepper that you can't with Mountain Dew?
Sparklykiss: Make delicious floats
JJWeatherman™: I've had a mtn dew float before
JJWeatherman™: from Dairy Queen
Sparklykiss: And you ruined the ice cream
Sparklykiss: Oh, pfft, Dairy Queen.
JJWeatherman™: I won't lie, it wasn't great
" @BackupPanic said:Fuck you!" Dr Pepper is composed of 23 wonderful flavors . . . enough said. "Yep!Whereas Mountain Dew keeps coming up with all these garbage flavors that get worse and worse over time. Dr. Pepper was right the first time. "
You guys are crazy people. Dr. Pepper is awesome (first point). Mountain Dew is the WORST, straight up (second point). I can think of like 5 or 6 different sodas that are better than Dr. Pepper- Coca Cola, 7up, Sprite, etc. But EVERYTHING is better than Mountain Dew (though Code Red is pretty great).
" @JEC03 said:Mountain Dew Voltage is the greatest thing ever, beside that WoW orange-citrus stuff they came out with a year or so ago. That shit was GDLK." They need to bring back having real sugar in soda's it taste so much better then that corn syrup. "Mountain Dew's all over that. Mountain Dew's for the people!"
" @JEC03 said:Can always buy Dublin Dr Pepper." They need to bring back having real sugar in soda's it taste so much better then that corn syrup. "Mountain Dew's all over that. Mountain Dew's for the people!"
" @RobotHamster said:The only people who call it soda around here are people who are out of town and visiting." I like both equally, and who calls it pop? This isn't 1956... "Isn't that what they refer too as soda in Canada? Pop? "
Pop's always made so much more sense to me.
" No idea which one is a better soda, but DP is a better pop. Mountain Dew is revolting. It just tastes like sugar water. That said, I would much rather have a Barqs Root Beer, coke, pepsi, or just about any other flavour of pop then ether of those. "What's a "pop"?
Mountain dew is a better coke than Dr Pepper. But the best coke out there is definitely Pepsi.
Dr. Pepper is always the pop I drink when feeling particularly tired... it always seems to put a pep in my step. That said, I can barely stand the stuff and only drink it because it's readily available at work.
Mountain Dew, meaning the classic green stuff, is barely better than it. Code Red, however, is the second greatest drink created by man - second only to Surge / Vault.
