SAN RAFAEL, CA - JULY 25: Cans of Coca Cola are displayed on July 25, 2018 in San Rafael, California. Coca Cola announced plans to raise soda prices in North America due to rising prices of metals following tariffs imposed on Chinese imports by the Trump administration.

Soda, pop, sugar water… whatever you call it, the United States loves it. Studies estimate that the soft drink market will hit $388 billion by 2025. But while we can’t stop sipping on the fizzy stuff, we are very opinionated on what kind we slurp down. Here are the most unpopular big-name sodas in America

  • Diet Coke. After factoring in annual revenue data, consumer polls, and their number of fans on Facebook, it has been determined that Diet Coke is the least popular soda in America. What may have tanked its score the most is the zero-calorie pop is currently sitting at only number 44 in Ranker’s best soda brands of all time poll. Dr. Pepper has the honor of topping that list.
  • Sierra Mist. According to BestLife’s numbers, Sierra Mist is America’s second least popular soft drink. But don’t shed a tear for the folks working on the lemon-lime beverage. They still make about $1 billion every year.
  • Sunkist. The orange soda brand’s 3.4 million fans on Facebook were not enough to get them out of the bottom three sodas in America. 7-Up better step up its game if they don’t want to suffer the same fate. There is currently less than a point separating them in the poll.


On the other side of the poll, it was Coca-Cola that was the top dog as the most popular soda in America followed by Pepsi and Dr. Pepper. Check out the full list HERE.
