Hello, I would just like to say this is my first debate...anyways, Dr. pepper is better than coca cola in many ways.
first of all, it tastes better. no one can explain what dr. pepper taste like. coca cola just tastes like pepsi (which, by the way, i dont like either).
dr. pepper also has less acid than coca cola. why would you want to drink something that has more acid?
car mechanics use coke to remove corrosion off of battery terminals in cars. ewwww. just imagine what that can do to your stomach! well, i will let the opponent tell their side of the story now, good luck! = )

i personally dont drink soda, but i used to and think coke is definitely better.

here are some facts from Cokefacts.com

1.Coca-Cola produces nearly 400 brands in more than 200 countries.

2.Before it goes to market, each Coca-Cola product undergoes nearly 450 different tests to ensure that ingredient and packaging quality meets the Company's standards.

3.Coca-Cola's India business creates employment for more than 150,000 people.

I am not going to argue that coke tastes better because that is purely matter of opinion. but i will show you results showing that other people like it better
on http://www.fanpop.com...
it was voted that
coke=86%
dr.pepper=14%

this shows that other people love coke more as well.

And dr.pepper has a weird after taste. i dont like it, but maybe other people do.

but just because coke has more acid in it, doesn't mean it does not taste as good.
besides all soda pop is bad for you including dr.pepper.
Thankyou rachelle for posting this debate. i look forward to your answer.

thanks for debating me. you are correct, it is a matter of opinion, but I still agree that dr pepper is better than coca cola.
Dr pepper has twenty three fruity flavors in it. Coke used to have actual cocaine in it, but they took it out over 100 years ago. http://www.healthbolt.net...
Dr pepper has never been made with drugs in it! But I guess everyone is different, but I can tell you, here in Texas, dr pepper definitly has the upper hand!

Thank you again for debating me!

I dont think that just because it used have cocaine in it 100 years ago, means that it should be worse than dr. pepper.
coke has been around longer, and according to numerous polls, tastes better than dr.pepper.

plus coke makes every one happy. it is good to just sit back relax and have a coke. same goes with dr. pepper, but coke is just the essence of 'cool'

it has been around alot longer than dr.pepper also, which also helps for the coke situation.

Well any way thaks rachelle, this was fun ;)

Um im sorry Coca-Cola guy but Dr Pepper actually has been around longer. Yes Dr Pepper is the oldest US soda-pop not Coca-Cola. Dr Pepper was created in 1885 were Coca-Cola was made in 1886 one year after Dr Pepper was made and Dr Pepper guy Pepsi tastes better then coke :P
