Diet soda appreciation thread

not all diet sodas are created equally. In fact, I find most diet colas to be rather blah. BUT, there are three which I find stand head and shoulders above the rest. Of course, they're non-colas, but they are diet soda nonetheless.

3) Diet Mountain Dew

2) Diet Dr. Pepper


and my new love

1) Diet Sunkist Orange


Honorable mention to Diet Cherry Coke.

I love Diet Dr Pepper. Diet vanilla cherry Dr Pepper is good. I also like Diet root beer. That's about it.

My friends and I were talking tonight about the taste of Diet Coke. We came to a conclusion that Coke has changed the taste of Diet Coke because we have all noticed that we can lo longer taste the aspartame. When I later mentioned this to my brother and father they too said they recently noticed a change to the taste of Diet Coke.

i think it has to do with that new coke zero shit. i *think* coke zero now has aspartame and diet coke uses some sort of splenda sweetener. i could be totally wrong though. i just recall hearing something like that.

I'm using that to make the distinction between sodas and colas. There are many sodas that are not colas.

For like a decade, Diet Rite has been the only diet stuff that I can get down. Not only can I get it down, though...I straight-up like them shits. Nay. I love it. Represent. Give me Diet Rite or give me death, etc.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen the diet coke with splenda around anywhere lately. Maybe they used that as a test and then replaced it? I dunno, Coke has so many "plain" diet drinks it's ridiculous

Coke Zero
Diet Coke
Diet Coke (W/Splenda!)

and for those wishy-washy indecisive people, C-2.

The Diet Coke with Splenda is ok and is sold around here. Also, Coke Zero tastes flat to me.
