Saudi Arabia is a Pepsi country. Pepsi or some call it Bebsi…Saudis love it! Not Coca Cola nor any other kind of Cola, just cold refreshing Pepsi. Offer a Saudi Pepsi lover a Coca Cola, and see how he will look at you and ask you nicely if you have Pepsi, tell him it all tastes the same then see him flip out and start arguing with you for hours.
Pepsi goes hand and hand with the all traditional Saudi dish Kabsah, Pepsi compliments spices in the rice and chicken, which leaves you with a feeling of full satisfaction and getting you ready for the afternoon nap. When it comes to how Saudis like to drink their Pepsi, they prefer to drink it in cans, for some reason it tastes better than bottle, and for kids it is more convenient to drink from cans…when they are done, they can step on it and transform it into a hockey puck shape and start playing soccer with it.
Go to any vending machine in Saudi Arabia and you will find more than one Pepsi vending machine standing next to each other ganging on a one poor Coca Cola machine, plus I will not be surprised if those Coca Cola vending machines contains Pepsi in them. Pepsi is the number one beverage in Saudi!
