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.


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 

Dr. Pepper floats are only second to root beer floats. Mountain Dew doesn't even compare!

Mountain Dew is pretty nasty. Way too much sugar/caffeine. Not a fan of Dr. Pepper either though, but I'll give it a slight edge over MD.

Dr. Pepper is the bane of my existence.

They are both disgusting. Coca-Cola is the only option. Mountain Dew is slightly less disgusting than Dr. Pepper, though.

Dr. Pepper might I add having sour gummy worms with it makes it even better.

Dr. Pepper is said to make the world taste better. It's also the drink of choice for gentlemen such as myself.

I enjoy both Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper, but I'll take Dr. Pepper over the Dew probably every time. Also I refer to all soft drinks as soda.

The only reason to drink Mountain Dew is if you cannot get Dr Pepper where ever you are.

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.

Don't really care for either, but if I had to choose I would go for Mountain Dew.

Dr. Pepper Cherry is fuckin' bomb. But, Mountain Dew Voltage is mind-blowing!

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).

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.

Can always buy Dublin Dr Pepper.

Much easier here though, no high fructose corn syrup in anything. Cane sugar all the way.

Isn't that what they refer too as soda in Canada? Pop?

I stopped drinking carbonated beverages for about 5 months now. A sip now and their makes me want to puke. But when I did, I guess Mt. Dew was better but I was more of a sprite/pepsi fan

The only people who call it soda around here are people who are out of town and visiting.

Pop's always made so much more sense to me.

Dr. Pepper is better tasting, but i'll drink some of that sweet dew when I need a little boost. Dr. Pepper takes it, this time. Also, fuck Code Red.

They're two completely different drinks! They're not even the same color! Maybe Dr Pepper vs Mr Pibb, or Mountain Dew vs Vault....

I'm sure there are valid reasons and opinions on both sides, but for me, Dr. Pepper rough taste really brings out my spirits, while Mountain Dew...well, it tastes like syrup water.

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.

Enjoy both but I tend to drink more of Mt Dew though it seems that I find a cold dr. pepper really good in the morning.

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.
