In the land down under, colas are king. But which brand of cola?

If you answered “Coca Cola”, then congratulations. You’re in line with research undertaken by Roy Morgan that identified the most popular soft drinks in Australia by brand.
Based on a percentage of population who stated that they had consumed a soft drink in the previous seven days, 19 per cent had quaffed a Coke, more than double the next contender.
That’s a comfortable lead for Coca Cola to enjoy, especially when you consider that the second most imbibed bubbly drink was Coke Zero, with 8 per cent.
Pepsi Max slid in at third with 7 per cent, then Diet Coke at 5 per cent and finally, escaping the Cola Event Horizon that seems to make up the Australian soft drink palate, Schweppes Lemonade on 4 per cent.
