Dear Pepsi,

I honestly like Coke better than Pepsi, but I like Mt. Dew more than Mello Yello, so I am confused by which soda company is my favorite. So I decided to write this letter and ask for some free stuff. I’m sending this same letter to both companies. The one that sends me cooler swag will be my official favorite beverage maker!

Scan of the letter from Pepsi


This was the first of two letters I wrote. It’s pretty much the truth. I do like Coke better than Pepsi, and Mt. Dew better than Mello Yello, but since Coke has yet to send me anything, I’ve been buying Pepsi products exclusively. See what a $0.41 stamp and some stickers can get you, Coke? My loyalty is so easily purchased.

Update: I did get a response from Coke 8 days after I got the above letter from Pepsi. Pepsi still wins. Neither sent me super exciting things, but then I really wasn’t expecting either would.

Update 2: I did drink Pepsi exclusively for a year. Now I drink whatever I want. Mostly coffee.
