    Most of us have seen the commercial by now. You buy the syrup and the machine that adds the carbon/gas.
    Comon, do they really think we are that dumbfounded? and all those people in the ads saying,,,wow,,,it tastes just like coke, or sprite, or redbull.
    Only a typical Obama supporter would fall for this.
    Yah! Coke and Pepsi have given out their secret recipes for all of thier soda products.
    And all of America is just plain dumb (well,,the 40% of Obama supporters will buy it)

    Coke, Pepsi, they taste the same. The "secret recipe" is just hype. Sprite is just sugar and a little fake lemon. I ain't got a clue what Redbull tastes like but I have no doubt that they can all be duplicated well enough for a hell of a lot less money.

    And how do you think soda comes in professional use size? The syrup comes in a box.... water and Co2 are added and it comes out of the gun in the bar or in dispensing machines.

    we have all had soda from a dispenser,but even they will never duplicate the taste coming from the bottle/can. I would know as I have worked in Hospitality for years. It really comes down to the quality of the water, and most of us have all tasted dispenser soda mixed with tap water,,,,,yeeccch!

    Pepsi has always been my favorite, but I have worked for some restaurants that did filter their water to the extreme. but unfortunately, there plenty of sub-par diners that dont take pride in the quality of thier soda/ice tea dispensers, we have all been there,,,we go to eat,,the food is ok,,but the drink just tastes awful!

    I agree. Coke Zero is my favorite soda, but I can't stand the taste of it from a fountain.

    Coke and Pepsi have radically different tastes. I have no idea how people can fail the Pepsi Challenge.

    It's probably a ripoff, but that's basically how the soda machines at convenience stores, etc., work.
