Diet Coke Is Evil

I'm hopelessly trapped in its clammy grasp...

Coke Zero has a different sweetener in it than Diet Coke. The prevailing wisdom is that if you like regular Coke then you will like Coke Zero. Coke Zero tastes way more like the real thing than Diet Coke. This is the case for me. If you like Diet Coke already, then you're not really going to like Coke Zero.

Diet Coke is good. Coke Zero tastes like syrup.

You have zero shame, Sir.

I recommend Tropicana light for a diet soda that tastes good.........

I tend to be a chain drinker when given the chance, popping the top on the next as I finish one. And I don't care, Diet Coke or Coke Zero. (Although I prefer Zero.) So I try not to have it in the house any more.

Diet Root Beer
mmmm
No where near as good as real root beer but far better than all other diet sodas. Diet coke is ok. Nothing special.

Diet soda is just plain bad tasting. Why not drink regular? Give me a Sprite or a Squirt. If I want caffeine I'll drink coffee.

Diet Coke keeps me awake through long-winded PowerPoint presentations held right after lunch.
