Calling all soda lovers! It is finally time to settle the drink debate over which pop is better: Mountain Dew or Dr. Pepper. Both drinks offer different flavors, so it is important to take an in-depth look at the two before making the final decision.

Mountain Dew

First up is the caffeine-packed beverage known as Mountain Dew. This soda comes in many unique flavors including Baja Blast, Code Red and Major Melon. Several St. Dominic students prefer the fresh taste that Mountain Dew provides. 

“I like Mountain Dew better [than Dr. Pepper] because I appreciate the lemon-lime tang. I love how every sip is refreshing on my tongue,” junior Vinny Pescarino said.

Dr. Pepper 

Next up on the refreshment roster is Dr. Pepper. The classic soda is hard to beat, especially as an ice-cold, carbonated glass rolls down your throat. Although it only comes in one flavor, Dr. Pepper pairs perfectly on a hot summer day. Many students agree that the crisp drink is equally nostalgic and satisfying.

Both drinks have much to offer in terms of flavor and satisfaction. Ultimately, it is up to the consumer to decide which soda is preferable. If you are still undecided, go grab a Mountain Dew and a Dr. Pepper, and let us know which one quenches your thirst.
