Top 10 Best Soft Drinks (Soda Pops)

The Top Ten
1 Dr. Pepper

Dr Pepper has brought fizz to my buds and rizz to my bloods. Every sip is a sweet, simmering taste of the freedom that our troops died for. combining not 21, not 22, but 23 extravagant flavors to grace the mouth of its drinker, Doctarious pepparious has permanently altered my every decision regarding beverages.

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.

Crisp, refreshing, and delicious, Dr. Pepper changed my concepts of what a soda could be. One sip and all other soft drinks might as well not exist. Even the diet version is much better than most other sodas. Nothing compares to that first mouthful of heaven. All colas taste the same, and the is no difference between Crush and Fanta. Dr. Pepper is the original and, 130 years later, is still the best by far. There is no way to describe the taste other than heavenly. The balance of fizziness and flavor is impossible to comprehend until you try it. Dr. Pepper is THE best soda. Period.

Dr. Pepper is very balanced; a perfect combination of refreshing, sweet, and slight spiciness. No other soda compares to it; Fanta and Crush are overpoweringly sweet; Sprite, Mountain Dew, and 7UP simply not flavorful enough; Coca-Cola is admittedly descent along with Root Beer, but just not as heavenly as Dr. Pepper.
There is nothing that compares to that first sip of good ol' Dr. Pepper. Plus, Dr. Pepper was first made in Texas, and I am a Texan!

2 Coca-Cola

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.

Coke has a slightly bitter taste, and a fizzy refreshing feel.
Dr. Pepper = too sweet
Root Beer = It's more of a in the mood drink rather than a get now drink.
Mountain Dew = I don't know why but I hate dew.
Sprite = the fizz is gone too fast
Cream Soda = like dr. Pepper. root beer too sweet.
Pepsi = Tastes the same as coke to me, but Coke is older.
Orange Soda = DELICIOUS but the name brands don't do it right.
Pink Lemonade = can be too bitter, too sweet, never like a definite soda.
Grape Soda = same as orange

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.

3 Mountain Dew

The name 'Mountain Dew' perfectly justifies the taste of this neon green heavenly drink. I don't know why it tastes so good but when I take a sip of Mountain Dew, I feel so refreshing that I feel as if I'm flying high above the green lush mountain and enjoying the Ariel view of it.

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!

Up until a year ago in my life my favorite drink was Dr. Pepper. I liked it because of that sweet cherry flavour it gave, and it was great in general. Then for the first time I tried Mountain Dew... WOW! It was MILES better than Dr. Pepper. That extremely lush taste of lemon and lime, it was just PERFECT. Especially for gaming. EXTREMELY especially for gaming. The stuff had a ridiculous amount of caffeine in it, it was comparable to red bull, or monster in terms of how much it energized you. Except it didn't have that disgusting taste that most energy drinks have. THIS is why it's the perfect drink for gaming, and just the best soda ever made in general.

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.

4 Pepsi

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.

This is the best in the world I think. How is Dr. Pepper number 1. It should be at least number 3. Coke or Pepsi should always be in the top 2. I find it funny how all generic sodas taste like one or the other. I like Hill Country Fare. To me it taste like Pepsi. HEB taste like Coke. Even in the taste test proves that Pepsi is number one.

Pepsi is much nicer than coca cola because coca cola is too sweet. I also hate dr pepper. It is absolutely disgusting. Also sprite is not as nice as it used to be because the sweetener makes it taste strange so I now prefer 7up but pepsi is still the best.

5 Sprite

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.

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!

The best thing about this drink is that it's completely versatile--sweet and tart all at once, and almost anyone can like it without misgivings. It's not like Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper, where its flavor maybe tastes too distinctive for some.
It should be higher than # 5, for sure.

6 A&W Root Beer

ROOT BEER! And the comments on cream soda are wrong. Sprite heals stomach aches. And cream soda is alright, but it is not as sweet as root beer. Coke and Dr. Pepper? Are you kidding? Those sodas are not sweet and they are gross. Root beer takes the crown, there is no question.

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!

Even though most root beers taste the same in my opinion, A&W is an awful lot sweeter and better to drink than Barqs and mug combined. The only time I will drink any other root beer is only if the store or restaurant doesn't have any A&Ws. Which is least likely.

7 Fanta Orange

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.

why is it at 7? it should be at number 1! the best ever, in the world. I'm still tasting different Fantas to see which ones the best. The orange flavor is a banger!

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.

Orange Soda, specifically Orange Fanta, is THE best soda of all time, naturally flavored AND brilliantly colored, yet not too out there that it isn't offered at just about every sports game or bbq on the block. (I'm looking at you, pineapple and strawberry) Just all around a magnificent drink. Even though it's not dark and gross like most other options, it made its way into the posse, and our hearts. 😌 No doubt no other soda trumps an orange one.

8 7UP

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!

9 A&W Cream Soda


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.

10 Barq's Root Beer

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!

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.

The Contenders
11 Coca-Cola Cherry

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!

12 Crush Orange

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.

Crush has the same problem as Pepsi, it has a little less flavor than Fanta.

13 Coca-Cola Vanilla

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...

Been my favourite drink for years. I could drink the stuff all day, everyday, if it wasn't so unhealthy.

14 Canada Dry Ginger Ale

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.

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

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

Forget Schweppe's Canada Dry, and Seagram's, Vernors is the best ginger ale. It's not too incredibly bitter and not too sweet, it's just right. Not to mention Vernors is the oldest surviving pop.

15 Sunkist Orange

Sunkist is like the best soda EVER! At least I think so. Though Sunkist is way better I also love Dr. Pepper and MT Dew.

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.

16 Pepsi Wild Cherry

There's nothing to match Cherry Pepsi. It has a burst of delicious cherry* flavor, and it's much better than your normal Pepsi!

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!

17 Mountain Dew Code Red

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!

18 Mountain Dew Baja Blast

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.

19 Pibb Xtra

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.

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.

Mountain dew has bromide in it which can lead to cancer, getting limbs amputated and a bunch of other bad things. Look it up for yourself and you will see some of the other things it can do to you> bromide is used in flame retardent. How good can that be for you?

20 Mug Root Beer

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

My top 10:

1. Diet Pepsi
2. Stewart's root beer
3. Orange soda
4. Mug root bear
5. Coke
6. Root beer float

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

definitely a must buy soda pop to have at parties , dances , graduation , while having sleepovers, and even while having pizza ! This soda pop is so addictive , so good and one of my favorites .

21 Mountain Dew Voltage

. 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.

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.

One of the only if the only soda's that have raspberry taste and man is it good I drink it every chance I get to.

22 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.

It's so delicious in every single way. From the flavor to the texture to the way it feels going down your throat, I could drown in a sea of grape soda and be perfectly at ease.

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

23 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.

24 Diet Coke

Best soda ever... I love Diet Coke even thought regular coke is better for you, I don't care diet coke taste very sweet and, me and my friend drink Diet Coke like their beers hahaha. WE LOVE THEM

Yuk, yuk, yuk I hate the taste of any coke, it's all to sweat.

Yuck, yuck, yuck. My mom once made me drink it... She threatens me now with it if I don't eat ma beans...

I have an unbeatable addiction to Diet Coke. I drank it non stop for a long period of time and no regular coke tastes too sweet! BEST EVER!

Best ever! I'm a fan and addict, I would never bother with the regular, why when I can save calories for dessert and enjoy this instead.

25 RC Cola

Best cola ever, they just dropped the ball on advertising.
Royal Crown Cola much better than Coke and Pepsi...

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

Its still around and a nice alternative to Coke or Pepsi.

It is my favorite soda. It is very underrated!
