I said that in my article marking the return of the Sathien Spotlight and while doing research for my upcoming battle with Syd I've come across a company that seems worthy of its highlighting so here goes (it's best not to ask how the two are related).

Coke's got Coke, Sprite, Fanta, Minute Maid, Nestea, Dasani, Powerade and Fruitopia. And Pepsi's got Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Mug Root Beer, Sierra Mist, Tropicana Twister, Tropicana, Gatorade, Ben & Jerry's Milkshakes, and 7 Up (outside the States). Today, my friends I point you to what is probably the king of underdog drink companies, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group.

In addition to the obvious Dr. Pepper and Snapple families, these guys have the rights to both A&W and IBC types of Root Beer (as well as the other IBC drinks), not to mention Canada Dry, Country Time, RC Cola as well as Diet Rite, Mott's apple juice, Hawaiian Punch, Orange Crush, Schweppes, 7Up (only in the United States), Sunkist AND SunnyD, Welch's grape and strawberry sodas, as well as Yoo-hoo and several drink brands I've not really heard of (Cactus Cooler, Deja Blue, Hires Root Beer, Frosty's root beer, Nehi, Orangina, Raging Cow, Squirt, Stewart's, Sun Drop, Tahitian Treat, Vernor's ginger ale, and Venom Energy Drink).

Most of that information is in regard to the United States, as far as Canada is concerned, the only drinks they handle that aren't distributed by either PepsiCo or the Coca-Cola Company are Slush Puppy, Snapple, and Wink.

How did 7Up end up having different ownerships in varying countries? There had to be some kind of hilarious legal struggle in there somewhere....

i think he is trying to say that Coke & Pepsi are bitches and that Dr. Pepper shall reign supreme.

<insert SydPepsia reference here>
The point is that Coke and Pepsi's popularity do not equal good drinks.
