Your Favourite Diet Soda?

Fri Jan 26, 2007 9:25 am

Well, what's your favourite diet/sugar-free soda/carbonated beverage? Usually, if I want a cola, I'll go for a Coke Zero or a Diet Pepsi. If I feel like something else I'll grab a Fresca.



Shut up and calculate.

The american version of Diet Coke. The French version was just a little bit too sugary.

Just for the Taste of It...Diet Coke.  Wink (how many on A.net are old enough to remember that one?

I am also a massive Fresca fan.

Coca-Cola Light is quite sweet tasting. I don't know why they do that, nor do I know why Diet Coke in the UK follows the US recipe.

Normally I cannot drink diet soda as it's so boring, but Sprite Zero is very good. I can hardly taste the different between it and regular Sprite.

Someone from Coke claimed that it was just a name change when they switched from Diet Sprite to Sprite Zero, but I disagree. The taste is definately much closer to regular Sprite than before.

I'll second that. I tried it for the first time two nights ago and I honestly couldn't taste any difference between it and the conventional Coke. Very nice!  Wink

Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi - I'm drinking one now. The cherry taste is strong but not overpowering, and masks the sweetener aftertaste nicely.

I talked to the Pepsi guy at a local KwikTrip a few months ago. He said Diet Mt. Dew sells almost as well as regular Mt. Dew in Wisconsin and Minnesota. In some parts of the USA, Diet Mt. Dew is virually unheard of.

I was grocery shopping yesterday, saw regular Dew, but not the Diet. I've tried it once before, and really liked it. Guess it just doesn't sell very well here in NM.

As for my choice, I have found that Diet Pepsi's Jazz is really good. When I first tried the Black Cherry & French Vanilla version, I didn't even know it was a diet drink. There is a Strawberries and Creme Jazz out now, but I haven't tried it yet. Doesn't sound too good though.

I bought a 2 liter of that stuff and couldn't bear to finish it. Just WAAAAAAY to sweet.

Quoting ExFATboy (Reply 10):
Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi

Hate the stuff, the cherry tastes like the same cherry flavor used in cough syrup.

Since I am in Pepsi country I usually drink Diet Pepsi most of the time... I'm currently finishing off my 2nd 12oz can of the day and I have a 26oz bottle left. But I prefer Diet Coke and I like the taste of Diet Coke over the newer Splenda sweetened versions.

If I can get it I will almost always go w/ Diet Dr. Pepper. But very few places up here have it in their soda fountains, and b/c I am in Pepsi country, non-Pepsi products are rarely on sale.

As for non-caffeinated stuff I really like Sierra Mist Free.

IIRC, Diet Coke is sweetened with Aspertame, Coke Zero is sweetened with Sucralose. Sucralose mimics the flavour of sugar MUCH better than aspartame does.

Well, the fact that the sugar is treated with chlorine might be the enviro issue. Anyway, Diet Coke with Splenda (Sucralose) was a massive commercial failure in the US and pissed a lot of people off when it made regular Diet Coke hard to get for a week or so.

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 27):

There is no difference between the two.

Quoting Bongo (Reply 29):

Coke Zero uses the Coca-Cola Classic formula with the lone difference being that it uses non-nutritive sweeteners. Diet Coke uses its own, softer, formula. The Diet Coke formula also happens to be the one they used to make the ill-fated New Coke

Quoting Iamcanadian (Reply 33):
IIRC, Diet Coke is sweetened with Aspertame, Coke Zero is sweetened with Sucralose.

Incorrect. There is a Diet Coke with Splenda (Sucralose), which I mentioned before. The difference is the formula. Coke Zero uses a blend of Aspartame and Sucralose.

Quoting Iamcanadian (Reply 33):
Sucralose mimics the flavour of sugar MUCH better than aspartame does.

Not particularly. Sucralose is easier to use in place of sugar because it is not significantly sweeter than sugar like aspartame and other non-nutritives are. Sucralose also stands up much better to heat, while aspartame does very well in cold.
