You called your sweet old granny a French @[email protected][email protected]!?. That's not very nice.

It's Coca Cola, that's why you couldn't find any. And how old are you?

To drink some MENTOS up it does not matter which exact Cola is.

Because in Scotland Pepsi is one of their '5-a-day' (along with deep fried Mars Bars).

Weird. I'm sure I was in the north of England yesterday. I must have been because I distinctly remember being at home and work, both of which are there. I was able to buy Coca-Cola with no difficulty at all.

Here in Russia any café, restaurant, meal network could easily agree a sales volume with CocaCola for instance against different kind of priveleges including net cash bonuses paid. One main condition to be observed is no any competitor product may be sold or even presented together. I would suppose Pepsi has more aggressive policy in Scotland to kick CocaCola off.

I'm not really a fan of vegetable extract drinks, but when my arm is twisted I'd take Pepsi over the sheity coke crap any day of the week.

Unfortunately as KB points out you can buy it.
TT4N, Coca-Cola in English is spelled the same as it is in French . Probably pronounced similar too!

French Orangina is much nicer to their Pepsi or Coca citrus analogues.
