The list of the best at

To start of with: the list is not an order of precedence; it cannot be because many colas received the same grade. Thus we give a list in alphabetical order. Besides there are not exactly 10 entries! There are the best 8 colas, and then an additional 34 next best, so to speak.

In order to create an order of precedence it would be necessary to have all colas for a direct comparison. This is by no means possible because some colas are no longer available or were aquired abroad. Hence no first, second etc. place.

There is nevertheless a winner: Coca-Cola Coke is after all that time still the absolute favourite - even after more than 700 colas!

The Best

The list of the best colas (grade 1 oder 1-, equivalent of 5 stars) contains interestingly colas from different categories, which are mentioned as well.

  • Coca-Cola Coke (Germany 2002) - The best cola
  • Afri Cola (Germany 1998) - The best alternative cola
  • Big K Cherry Cola (USA 2001) - The best cherry cola
  • Coca-Cola Vanilla Coke - The best cola with vanilla aroma
  • Dr. Pepper Cola (UK 2004) - The best "Dr" Cola
  • Dr Pepper Energy (Germany 2005) - The only Energy-cola that convinced us with an authentic mixture
  • Pepsi Cola Twist (France 2003) - The best cola with lemon taste
  • Pepsi Cola Mont Blanc (Japan 2011) - A quaffable, only light-brown special edition exclusive to Japan
