I was far from the only person who came up Coke in that particular
supermarket lineup.  Either Portland's weird (but we already knew that), or
Pepsi's marketing strategy was seriously flawed (hence "marketing strategy"
and not "scientific survey").  After watching this frustrated group go
through several taste testers all coming up Coke, I started to wonder if
they just ran the challenge until someone finally got Pepsi and they had
the footage they needed...
