    Was watching that tv show where they taste test stuff, and was shocked that Pepsi outsell coke 2:1. Really shocked, always thought coke was the bigger seller.

    Coke is the UK's top selling brand according to The Grocer.

    This report here lists the top eight brands. Coca-Cola is number one with £1.16 billion, Lucozade is number eight with £426.7 million. No mention of Pepsi. I think you misheard; Coke outsells Pepsi by at least 2:1.

    Top selling brand, but original coke does not sell as much as original pepsi. I would not be suprised if Diet Coke outsold them both.

    Edit:Not quite..... Low and no sugar versions are making a mark as Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Coke Life now account for almost 45% of Coca Cola’s UK sales.

    Pepsi/Coke
    Also, worldwide, Coke is about 7 times more valuable than pepsi. Just goes to show how you can word something to give a totally different meaning.
    for making me delve deeper into that, thought it didnt sound right.

    Car still not back another major problem found .

    Is it just my experience that garages say it will be ready by lunchtime and they will call, they invariably don't and then when you chase them late afternoon they have bad news - which they cannot sort today .

    My store (that I walked past on the way home from work ... on foot ... as my car isn't working ... ) was reducing items to 10p. I asked if they were going on display and was told no they are going into the back. I can only assume for staff, as if binning they wouldn't bother putting labels on. I know staff deserve good deals too, but this is not the first time I have seen staff in this store putting reduced items away and then buying.

    Ho hum ... too heavy to carry anyway .
