US: Pepsi claims cola crown in US survey
The index showed people liked Pepsi products better than they did last year, while Coca-Cola has moved in the opposite direction.
Satisfaction fell two points among Coke drinkers over the last year to 82 points on a 100-point scale, while Pepsi and Cadbury Schweppes shared the highest index rating with 86.
Coke spokesperson Scott Williamson told just-drinks: "People in the US vote for their favourite soft drinks when they buy them every day, and we lead in the top three categories with Coke, Diet Coke and Fanta."
