Pepsi's best days was when they were competing head to head with Coke. Meanwhile, Pepsi kept endlessly trying to screw around with Pepsi's logo and branding.

This article contains more numbers, saying that Pepsi and Dr Pepper are essentially tied with only 0.03% difference between them (8.34% for Dr Pepper and 8.31% for Pepsi.) Coca Cola remains in the lead with 19.18% market share.

Isn't Dr Pepper (or whoever is in second place) the number 2 behind Coke?

Also, Dr Pepper seems to be available in both Coke and Pepsi fountains. Mr Pibb, which is Coke’s “pepper clone” is hard to find anywhere. Coke bottlers like Swire only sell Dr Pepper.

This is because in some places (Texas especially) Mr. Pibb is fightin' words.

Most independent bottlers still sell Coke and DP, but the Coke-owned locations like Coca-Cola United push Mr. Pibb. McDonald's is one of the biggest to do this - you'll never see Mr. Pibb there. However, because my local Coke is the Coca-Cola United flavor, I see a lot of Mr. Pibb around here. My local DP distributor also distributes Pepsi, but avoids the one-off and the oddballs that Pepsi and DP put out there.
