Neither, they are both products of a capitalist economy seeking to overrun the world with needless products that we are brainwashed into believing are needs; or did you mean powdered coke? NOW you're talking!
Shall I close the door on the way out?

Assuming that you'd already made a decision to drink soda, I'd choose Coke just because it tastes better. Both have about the same amounts of calories, chemicals and 34 grams of sugar which will hurt your health the same way.

The question is more fundamental I think, why drink soda in the first place?

Just soda water, please!!
With lime if you have it.

Me: Neither for me, but thank you for the offer. I fear one would be hazardous to my teeth and the other would lead to a short and rather brief interview.

Wine!

Well, since I work for Coke everyone assumes that is what I always drink, sometimes we need to surprise people by our answers and break down the established barriers. Actually, I'm a water, coffee and tea guy.

Do you have Diet Coke / Pepsi?

Neither, and I would recommend you not drinking it as well.
The phosphoric acid in them has other excellent uses, such as cleaning toilets, etc :D

If it's for clean toilet, any of them is good.

Bud Light, please.

It's an insurance company!!! They are looking for neither or water. If you drink either, then you are a health risk and a risk they don't want as an employee on their insurance plan.

Personally, I can't tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi and I try to limit my consumption of soft drinks because they are unhealthy. If you compare the ingredients in in a can of Coke vs. a can of Pepsi, they are essentially the same, but everybody has their particular brand affiliation. That's really where these beverage producers excel: branding. And I think UnitedHealth could learn a lot from Coke and Pepsi in terms of branding and PR. The insurance industry in general isn't always seen in the best light and I think that's something I could really help with, marketing UnitedHealth's services so that customers have the same positive feelings they do towards Coke and Pepsi.

Given that this is a health insurance company, I would say that either of them is just as bad. This question may have as well been phrased "pick your poison", or "Camel or Marlboro?" But for the record, I prefer Dr. Pepper.

Neither are part of a healthy diet.
