The Seattle Times reports on the top ten soda brands by market share:
Top 10 soda brands by market share as of 2010:

Pepsi-Cola (PepsiCo)- 9.5 percent
Mountain Dew (PepsiCo) - 6.8 percent
Dr. Pepper (Dr. Pepper Snapple) - 6.3 percent
Sprite (Coca-Cola) - 5.6 percent
Diet Pepsi (PepsiCo) 5.3 percent
Diet Mountain Dew (PepsiCo) 2 percent
Diet Dr. Pepper (Dr. Pepper Snapple) 1.9 percent

A couple thoughts on this:
- Coke is winning!
- It’s interesting that this data is published now, in 2012, when the numbers are from 2010. Did beverage-maker analysts not compile any data last year?
(For the record, I drink both Coke and Pepsi interchangeably, but mostly prefer Coke. Fuck the diet shit.)
