Top 10 Best Soft Drinks (Soda Pops)

The Top Ten

Dr. Pepper Dr. Pepper Product Image

I have never had Dr. Pepper before since I am in Australian where Dr. Pepper isn't sold unlike many other American sodas like Coca Cola and Sprite. But today I was shopping and I saw that they were selling things from America that isn't regularly sold here in Australia and one of them being a can of Dr. Pepper, I thought I'd ty it, so I bought it and when I first tasted it... I thought it wasn't good at all, like in my opinion it tastes like medicine! After today I will never drink Dr. Pepper again! by the way this is my opinion only and I'm not claiming Dr. Pepper is a bad drink, I just personally don't like it.

Unlike Coca Cola, Mountain Dew, Pepsi, and Sprite, Dr. Pepper is actually sweet and has a lot of flavors. In fact, it is even healthier than most other soda's. This is a combo that no one can refuse. It is so much better than Coca Cola, and if you do not like it, then get a life.

I go back and fourth between this and Coke but I think over all Dr. Pepper is the best. Coke I think is a bit better if it is super strong but other then that I think the taste that Dr. Pepper has.

I would pick coke but dr. Pepper is the smarter choice. It stays in the area of cola, but unique. Love it! Also, coke is way better than Pepsi.

Coca-Cola Coca-Cola Product Image

Although I don't drink a lot of soda, I do drink soda. Coca-Cola is so refreshing and much better than Pepsi. It has a refreshing cola taste and it is really bubbly. It has a distinct taste that you can't replicate. It has a nice kick but also has plenty of flavor. Best served ice cold! It tastes best in a glass bottle too so try to find a glass bottle. Pepsi tastes like the smell of Lemon Pine-Sol. Nothing better than Coca-Cola, ice cold, from a fountain or a glass bottle. Mmm!

Coca Cola is the best drink that there is. It beats Pepsi by a a lot, and personaly I think that pepsi is more like 11th or 12th place. But Coke Its delicious, Refreshing, Engergizing, and sponsers all the great things in life. It should be first and Dr. Pepper should be second. Not to mention that most people hate the fact that in the Movie World War Z that he sat down and drank a frigging PEPSI! Why did pepsi have to sponser that movie?! Why not Coke?!?! My point is that 76% of people who watched that movie hated that scene, True story. Coka Cola is the best, always has been, and always will be.

I think the decision is obvious. A scientist created a soda in the 1800s with extracts from the kola nut and coca leaf. Since then, little has changed besides deletion of the cola nut and addition of corn syrup. But corn syrup is inevitable in our economic position, and coca cola tastes the most authentic and real. While Pepsi tastes artificial. Not to sweet, (unlike Pepsi) not trying too hard (RC Cola), just right.

I'm sorry Pepsi fans but Pepsi consists of mostly the same ingredients as Coke and Coke was made first, Pepsi is a rip off.
Coke has a history, Pepsi was designed to be like Coke; When you say Pepsi is better you do realise that Pepsi is literally an intentional copy of Coke. You won't find me drinking Pepsi unless they're out of Coke

Mountain Dew Mountain Dew Product Image

It should come as no surprise that Mountain Dew is voted so far the 2nd best flavor of soda, for it is so unique in its rich, savory taste that no other soda comes close. Dr Pepper is coarse in comparison, and leaves your throat with an obnoxious itch. Mountain Dew runs down smoothly, and with a delicate fizzy finish that leaves you yearning for another swig. Dr Pepper is such a strong drink that it leaves little room for a fruity punctuation. Mountain Dew's award winning taste is so easily augmented by different fruit juice blends that it easily has the greatest assortment of flavors of any soda there is. I am proud to say that I do the dew, and you should too!

Mountain Dew is the best drink ever I think if I was stranded on an island and I got to pick three things to take with me then I would pick Mountain Dew, mcdonalds fries, and more Mountain Dew. I think everyone in the world should be able to try it because I know they would all love it. I think Mountain Dew should be the number one choice instead of Dr. Pepper. I don't even like Dr. Pepper I mean I would drink it but it is definitely not my favorite soda. If I had one wish I would wish to own a Mountain Dew world park except I am the only one aloud in after all I am the owner. Mountain Dew is the best.

This needs to be number one! Coca Cola tastes weird so I choose this instead. Dr Pepper tastes like cough syrup. Pepsi is the same as Coca Cola, this is my favorite

Mountain Dew is amazing. Beyond its rush of lemon lime flavor that's wickedly twisted to perfection and sends that bolt of freshness and energy screaming through your body... Its perfect for gaming... you can count on it for keeping you alert through the night. I always have my 12 pack ready for those brand new games. Though, your friends may think you're a bit crazy for it, I remember every party I HAD to have Mountain Dew, otherwise it just wasn't the same. Probably not the greatest thing for your teeth... But you know, come on what soda is right? I drink it every single day and it keeps me energized just fine. But god the rush it gives you with that caffine is bar insane, but if you're like me and don't like coffee or energy drinks, the dew is where its at. Coke is overrated in my opinion and Dr Pepper... Its way too fizzy. Something about it is just eh. But this drink is just, its sacred, you don't mess with someone's dew. To all the fans of the best drink out there, cheers! And ...more

Pepsi Pepsi Product Image

When I get acid reflux and heartburn, Pepsi actually really helps. And also it tastes sweeter, doesn't hurt my throat as much as coke, and puts me to sleep easily.
I know, I'm weird, ya don't have to tell me.

Sooooooo much better than coke. It tastes delicious and it’s so smooth. Unlike the fizzy bubbles of nothingness that coke is.

I kicked Coke for Pepsi back in 1997 and really picked up the habit in 1999. Not a day has gone by where I haven't had a Pepsi. Goes great with almost any food, BUT... the TRUE best variant of Pepsi is the short-lived Pepsi Vanilla. Had a 2-liter a day throughout its entire market run back from 2003-2006. But Pepsi - any kind is a great choice. Love it. Best soda of all time. Pepsi - only my choice.

My father, a long-time Coke lover, did the Pepsi taste challenge (I administered it, it was not the official one - because I know some people think it's fixed) and he called out Coke for being the considerably inferior pop of the two. I, myself, don't really see one as being better than the other, however, I do have a preference for Pepsi's product line over Coke's.

Sprite Sprite Product Image

This is the BEST of THE BEST of all sodas. I mean, if you want something that REALLY tastes good and WILL and IS going to make you want to drink it all the time, then Sprite is the drink for you. I think that this drink should be rated higher than its competitors like Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola, Mtn. Dew, and Pepsi because for one thing, Pepsi dehydrates you and will not quench your thirst but instead, do the opposite. For another thing, Dr. Pepper... Well, I don't know how to explain it. It's not the best tasting, although unique, at the same time, it is not something you would like to drink ALL the time. Coca-Cola and Mountain Dew are also great-tasting soft drinks, but I still feel that Sprite should be listed as Number 1, with Coke and Mtn. Dew behind Sprite. I would really hope that you guys heed my opinion and that you please put Sprite as #1. :-) P.S. sprite is a simple soda pop, although having a very delicious flavor to it. :-D Yummy!

This by far is still the best soda ever Although Sprite is caffeine-free, less harsh on the body, and contains far fewer ingredients than many other sodas, it is still a good idea to moderate your consumption. Sprite contains carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural flavors, sodium citrate, and sodium benzoate. A few of these ingredients can be detrimental to your health and it is important to understand why.

WHY is there no picture for Sprite?! If you see it, I bet you'll beg your mom to rush downtown to Target and buy a supersize drink! It is the best, best soda of all time, and-WHY IS IT NOT IN FIRST PLACE?! Absolutely NOBODY has good food tastes here. Well, except anyone who commented on this and says it is lovely. I love you guys! But I assure you one thing: Coco Cola, you're going down! Sprite, WE'RE JOYRIDING UP!

One time I took a sip of cococola, pepsi, dr. Pepper I didn't like it.
I love sprite however I will drink mountain dew if there's no sprite because mountain dew taste like sprite. sprite is my favorite drink cause it tastes like god blessing my taste buds and sprite is so tasty. that if I'm at your house and you have sprite I will drink all your sprite. it's so tasty plus no caffine. cafeine is for grown ups who never stop talking to there chatty pto freinds while there children are in the car with no air condition and
There scorched. so stop being silly and look at the sprite you know you want to drink so drop that cola, dr. Pepper or pepsi can and walk to them sprite and drink it! YUUM!

A&W Root Beer A&W Root Beer Product Image

I used to be a soda fanatic. Pepsi was my favourite, but ever since I was 14, this is the only soda I like anymore while I grew a distaste for the rest.

Root Beer is AWESOME, its BEAST! It is way better than all the other sodas above it. You definitely should put ROOT BEER as Number 1 and one alone. Me and my friends no matter what always pick Root Beer there is NO CONTEST between Root Beer and Dr. Pepper Root Beer kicks Dr. Peppers Butt. It beats dr. Pepper to a pulp, no wait correction, not a pulp it beats dr. Pepper to disinagration. Who ever made this list must have an IQ Level Less than NEGATIVE-1000(A thousand times less than ZERO) to put DR. Pepper as number 1 and ROOT BEER as number 4. ROOT BEER RULLE'SS. Dr. Pepper drools

Great root beer, great flavor, for those who think Barq's is better just remember they add caffeine to their product and no one else does so it's not a true root beer anymore. Also, Fanta grape and cream soda should have made this list.

A & W Root beer has a hard job up against the mighty, coca-cola funded, Barq's brand. However, it does not disappoint and rather than being defined by the likes of Coca-Cola inc., has become a true soda in its own right. Viva la A&W, viva la soda!

Fanta Orange Fanta Orange Product Image

Fanta is decaffeinated, but also gives the same rush. Its flavour is amazing and you have to agree, and because the rush and crash effect comes from sugar, you won't get what I like to call Mountain Dew Syndrome, where somebody drinks Mountain Dew while playing games and ends up getting withdrawal symptoms. This is common with Mountain Dew because it's the Gamer Drink of the century... Ugh. Drink Fanta. No withdrawal! No terrible aftereffect other than a minor crash which can be solved with some ice water, just like with other sodas.

It's a family tradition to make a 'Fanta/Tango smoothie' (sometimes Fanta, sometimes Tango):
1) Get some Fanta Orange or Tango in a blender with vanilla ice cream.
2) Blend them together until it's roughly a drink
3) Serve.

It's that easy. My family drinks it every year after dinner. It's the best drink you could ever have.

Obviously orange soda is the best soda in the world so I don't know why I didn't see it at the very top of this list. I love orange soda so much that right now I'm sitting on the couch with a bottle of it right next to me!

Once I was going to get coke from the machine and so I decided to have Fanta instead when I taped on the brand it had so many fruit flavor choices so I just pick orange and it was really good. Fuddruckers has the delicious Fanta.

7UP 7UP Product Image

Has a different taste than the competitors such as Sprite, Sierra Mist, and Squirt.. It's refreshing and it's my secret to my fruit punch. Others have tried to duplicate by putting in Sprite (not knowing that I only use 7UP) and it just doesn't come out with the same taste. Not to mention it's Caffeine-free, which means if your really thirsty it will quench your thirst, not make you even more thirstier.. That's one of the drawbacks with a lot of the dark colored sodas, they can dehydrate you. Caffeine, is also considered an alkaloid drug.. Which means if you drink 7UP rather than other sodas that do have Caffeine you won't experience "Caffeine Withdrawals" such as headaches, nausea and vomiting! Do your do 7UP your delicious!

It tastes tropical and refreshing. It is my favorite soda because it has a lot of flavour, much more that any other lemon/lime drink (like sprite). Even though it's a factory-made drink, I like to savour it like a good wine.
As soon as you take it out of the fridge, open and drink it. The first sip is essential.

7UP is a great, refreshing soda, and is not incredibly unhealthy like some others ones I know. *cough* Coke *cough* It's also amazing if you need to make punch or some type of nice summer drink! I know you'll enjoy it if you just give it a try!

One of my top favorite sodas, except I don't drink the CLASSIC 7up, I drink the new 7up ten, in which my opinion has the same flavor as the sugared, but in ten calories with no sugar.
I drink it when I work, and man, does it make me work quick!

A&W Cream Soda A&W Cream Soda Product Image


That delicious, clear caramel and vanilla taste is undoubtedly the best thing provided to the human race. It is in my opinion that the person who has kindly created this soda should be held in the same regard as men like George Washington, Ryan Gosling, or Ricky Bobby.

Stewart's and boylans creme soda is by far the best soda ever! I use to drink Mt dew until it started extreme decay on my teeth when I've never had even had a cavity! So I switched and I'm glad didn't know what I was missing! These 2 are a little more expensive. They come in 4 packs. The taste makes up for the price!

It is very creamy and has a smooth tingly finish I get this where ever I go. It has a sweet awesome taste that is very good for the soul and mind. I drink it when ever I can and where ever I go.

Cream Soda is the best drink ever tastes like vanilla and marshmallows and bubblegum so delicious. Better than even root beer.

Barq's Root Beer Barq's Root Beer Product Image

Barq's root beer might be my favorite soda EVER. I like the other brands, but Barq's is my favorite. It's even better when you have ice that's like, half melted beforehand, and then you can just chew on it while you drink your root beer... I know I'm weird.

Mountain dew sucks. It's disgusting. I surveyed 30 people for mountain dew or root beer and 29 people voted root beer over mountain dew and the age was different. I did not ask the same person twice and I agree that root beer is better than mountain dew as well so that makes it 30 against 1.

Best root beer ever, has caffeine which sets it apart from most. Good crisp taste and is widely available. Definitely better than Pepsi's Mug Root beer, although Mug does more accurately give you a traditional root beer flavor and style. Barq's is just better and original in the taste.

I don't remember the first time I had root beer, but having it was the best decision I ever made. I don't really like Mountain Dew or Sprite, and Pepsi/Coke are kind of bland, but Root Beer, is the perfect balance between sweetness, carbonation and flavor. Love it!

The Contenders

Coca-Cola Cherry Coca-Cola Cherry Product Image

Ah, Cherry Coke. The holy nectar of everything fizzy. Just the right amount of cherries. I don't even like regular cola. Add Cherry, you have something awesome. Besides water, there is nothing I'd rather have than an ice-cold Cherry Coke. That stuff is holy.

Coca Cola is very good but Coca Cola cherry is far better and taste's great. With the extra cherry and amazing flavor, this soda should be number one. In fact I'm actually drinking Coca Cola cherry now.!

It awesome but so expensive as I live in Australia. I'm an addict! I absolutley love it. It tastes like my two favourite things cherry and coke so it's a must for me! In fact I might go out and buy some now!

The most genius coke product out there! Overall amazing taste! In my mind, no other soda can compete with the awesomeness that Cherry Coke beholds!

Crush Orange Crush Orange Product Image

Ever since Pepsi has been making Crush, it has replaced Tropicana Twister in stores, which I really like because Tropicana is too sweet. Crush has a good balance between sweetness and actual fruit flavor. Now the only thing left for Pepsi to do is to buy Crush from Dr. Pepper so they can have Crush in ALL Pepsi restaurants. Pepsi being hard to find in restaurants is hard enough, but Crush is extremely hard to find in soda fountains, especially outside WabaGrill.

Crush is my favorite soda. It should be beating Coke, but some people haven't tried Crush, or any other soda other than Coke. They're so attached to Coke that they think all the other sodas sucks. Coke is the most boring soda I've ever tried.

So popular, even the Denver Broncos defense in the 1970s was called the Orange Crush Defense.

Vote for Crush or crush will crush you the flavoured goodness is limitless

Canada Dry Ginger Ale Canada Dry Ginger Ale Product Image

You can really drink it any time. Does not make you super hyper or any thing, just adds a bit of life in your. Personality, not as bad for your teeth; not good either. I prefer Canada dry.

Ahh, I'm drinking it right now! Good stuff! Perfect balance of ginger and sweetness, nice and crisp too. It's especially good on a nice hot day

Mmm Canada Dry. Although I'm an American, I do appreciate this fine creation our neighboring country has offered us!

My favorite Ginger ale, when my mom brings it home from the store it is the first thing I go to

Coca-Cola Vanilla Coca-Cola Vanilla Product Image

Better than any kind of Coke ever. Vanilla Coke is sooo awesome and delicious far better than Dr. Pooper (Yeah I purposely spelled that wrong)

I couldn't live without vanilla coke! I don't drink a lot of soda but when I do if its one of the options it's the first thing I will grab! I HATE drpepper it's so grooss!

The best type of Coca Cola! Absolutely delicious, just that small twist of vanilla is so refreshing!

Vanilla coke is just pure heaven manifested into a soda. Oh, the rejuvenating, carbonated sweetness...

Sunkist Orange Sunkist Orange Product Image

It is only drink which fruit drink and tasty and even many flavors too! How can I refuse this attractive drinks!

I love this Orange deliciousness. But Orange crush and orange fantasy tastes exactly the same!

Who doesn't love orange soda? You never had a Sunkist. DRINK ONE. It will change your life.

The orangeness it's made out of was kissed by the sun, yet refreshingly cool and liquidy, UNlike the sun.

Pibb Xtra Pibb Xtra Product Image

I would say Dr Pepper but if you take pepper and pibb to a blindfold test, like my family did last thanksgiving with 23 family members participating everyone having two 8 ounce cups of the spicy cherry soda and then breaking them down into 3 categories to be judged in. One was the carbonation, the other a mouth swishing and spit, then last but least being actually drinking. So out of 23 people Mr Pibb won by a landslide in all 3 catorgies all together 4 out of the 23 selected Dr Pepper. It was so one sided that family members wanted to try it again on Christmas Eve being they said the Dr Pepper wasent at the right temperature, so once again 23 judges but this time Mr Pibb took another one sided win with only in there backing Dr Pepper. Final verdict was that Mr Pibb had more of a spicy cherry bite and a much more carbonated soda like a soda should be, and Dr Pepper had a much weaker flavor as well as the fact of it seeming very flat. So my choice and the choice of my family is Mr Pibb ...more

This soda is undoubtedly the greatest ever made. It describes itself as "Spicy Cherry Soda" which I do very well believe, in fact I believe that it does have a sort of reminiscent flavor of Maraschino Cherry juice, yet of course with much more fizz, and a much more distinct flavor. The only problem with Pibb is that it is under appreciated, as well as under marketed, as I'm sure most will have noticed considering that I have yet to see a single Pibb commercial.

Pibb xtra took over its original formula and its intention was to compete with dr. Pepper. My opinion is it blow it out of the water its like a punch in the face with its spice and it has the carbonation like you get from pepsi that kind of burns your mouth yet its smooth and its addicting.

Yes! I fell in love with this soda when I was five years old at my dad's hockey match, I went and got it from a vending machine and I couldn't get over how spectacular it was, and today I still can't get over what a remarkable soda that it is.

Pepsi Wild Cherry Pepsi Wild Cherry Product Image

I drank Pepsi a lot as a young child. Once I had a cup of this, I refused to go back to regular Pepsi. Clear until now (and this still applies) I would NOT drink regular Pepsi. I will only drink the cherry kind. If my mom accidentally buys the normal kind, I'll just add cherry syrup. I WILL NOT DRINK REGULAR PEPSI.

Wild Cherry Pepsi... The nectar of the gods. No soda even comes close, and I've tried most other flavoured Pepsis. Cherry is king.

I can't believe the best soda ever is not on this list!

The rest suck. This one deserves to be number one.

Mountain Dew Code Red Mountain Dew Code Red Product Image

Code Red is definitely the greatest drink out there and deserves the number one spot. I am insanely addicted to it and drink 1 every day.

By far the best tasting. Reminds me of my childhood days of taking a sip of a shirley temple with cherries. It's a must buy!

The cherry flavoring in the mountain dew was very needed. It taste like mountain was kicked in the @$$ by cherries.

Best by far, I love its sweet but yet almost crispy clean taste you won't find another soda that's better!

Mug Root Beer Mug Root Beer Product Image

I like mug root beer because it's so creamy, it has areally good taste. It really should be number 1 because it is just blows your mind off!
Root beer is my favorite

Very good flavour! The best root beer. Love that creamy texture with the bubbles.

Mug is the best root beer it makes all the others look like child's play

Really good. I love the sweetness of this soda!

Mountain Dew Voltage Mountain Dew Voltage Product Image

. First time I ever had voltage md I was at my friends house and I fell in love, I love anything and everything with a raspberry or blueberry flavor. I don't drink it constantly because I often choose fountain drinks over bottled ones, but the day that mnt dew voltage is in a fountain drink station, ill be there with the biggest cup!

I always like variety and Mountain Dew is good with that. I'd say of all the flavors Mountain Dew has put out, Voltage is by far the best. It's kinda like those blue mondo drinks you had when you were a kid, but with carbonation.

Its all I drink it is my water I am 36 and if I didn't have my blue dreamers (cans of MD voltage) I would dehydrate me and this soda go together like tuna fish and prefer spaghetti meatballs laugh out loud

Mountain Dew Voltage is a great soda pop. My kids and I use to drink it by the Liter! Great quality, taste, and color. Enjoyable and YUMMY! This is the best soda ever.

Bad Parenting Your kids should not be drinking Mountain Dew? How old are they

Mountain Dew Baja Blast Mountain Dew Baja Blast Product Image

I was at Taco Bell one day, and I got a medium soft drink cup. I decided to try the "Baja Blast Flavor" because it sounded interesting, the rest is history.

As I was going through the list agreeing and disagreeing I stumbled upon Baja blast, the rest is history.

This is the best soda that ever existed! It's so sad I can only get it at Taco Bell :( It makes regular mountain dew look like a fool. The flavors to too amazing to explain!

The contest was rigged, this is the first place winner. All those other sodas are for losers.

Welch's Grape Soda

So good. Second favourite after Coke. We need this in the UK more often! Doesn't taste anything like normal grapes, but it has that sweet sugary artificial grape flavour from our childhood that none of us will forget. Try it if you haven't already! You're missing out on so much!

Grape soda satisfies my thirst better than almost anything else. That also includes grape drinks like Snapple Grape, Arizona Grape, and Grape Kool-Aid. Something about the flavor really cools me down.

An American classic. Horrible for you though, probably one of the worst. I was close to voting for Mountain Dew voltage.

Cold. Fizzy. Purple. Delicious. Unique flavour and perfect sweetness. This should be in the top ten at least.

Coke Zero

The true' diet' coke.. Has same basic formula.. Most people have no idea diet coke is not the diet version of coca cola.. It was the basis of new coke the failed drink in the 80's.. They use the coke name to make billions so I don't blame them but coke zero is my favorite and its time people realize the real difference between coke zero and diet coke or so its called

Not as sweet as other regular colas, but no medicine-like after-taste of other diet colas. Coke Zero is the perfect balance between the syrupy-sweetness of regular soft drinks and the zero calorie benefit of diet sodas.

Tastes better than all other Coke flavours including regular Coke! It just does! Should be number one.

Without a doubt the best diet soda out there. It's not too sweet and it has the right "kick." Worth the money.

Sierra Mist Sierra Mist Product Image

It is epic there is nothing not to like about it. Simply stated it tastes like heaven. It is my favorite soda. Its flipping ridiculous how good this soda is. I love it I can't even stop drinking it.

This should be beating Sprite (obviously) and 7-UP. This is the greatest lemon-lime soda of all time! It tastes like sparkling lemonade. This should be first place, in front of Crush.

No artificial flavors, no high fructose syrup, and all natural! Great alternative to Sprite.

The crispness is second to none. A freezing cold sierra mist is one of my dimple pleasures.

RC Cola RC Cola Product Image

I saw it in Walmart and Food Lion, then I'm like "I'll try some" and it is pretty good!

You guys are so unrefined it's ridiculous. RC Cola forever

It is my favorite soda. It is very underrated!

Grew up loving it and still my most favorite.
