Coke or Pepsi?

The world has changed drastically in the last thirty years. If someone was talking to a member of the first generation of this century and brought up things like the Nintendo Entertainment System or the 8-track, usually all the speaker would get would be a confused look. But one thing that has been around since the 80s, and still hasn’t come to an end, is the fact that people argue about whether Coca-Cola is better than Pepsi, or vice versa, known in the 1980s as The Cola Wars. And you know me, always wanting to turn things into a throwback because that’s just how much of a buzzkill I am.

So, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the year the Cola Wars really kicked off, I decided to wander the halls of Tarpon High, and get the opinions from all four grade levels, also wandering the halls.

This poll was a huge success, and even some of the teachers, who lived through the Cola Wars, answered. Mr. Howard is “Coke all the way,” and Ms. Ochs responded with simply “Coke” at least three times.

“When I’m out somewhere, I’m a Coke person, but when I’m relaxing, I love some Pepsi,” a hall monitor responded. At the end of the three day poll, it was clear that while 5 students either liked both, or didn’t care, Tarpon High is a Coke school, with more than half of the interviewees saying they preferred Coke over Pepsi.a

I agree – Coke all the way.
