so does Coke Zero taste like regular Coke? and there's Cherry Coke Zero too? I love Cherry Coke...

diet coke is nasty though. I remember they had that Coke C2 stuff for awhile - is that still around? it was supposed to be like half the calories and carbs or something. and it still pretty much tasted like coke.

I don't like it.
Really?

We call the sugar free version Diet Coke here. In other European countries I've heard them call it Coke Light/Cola Light but it was exactly the same sugar-free drink.

I thought Coke Zero was a sugar-free version of Coca-Cola that's supposed to taste almost the same. I've tasted it in a bar before and I didn't notice a difference but I never really have fizzy drinks.

I have an addiction to diet soda also just can't go without it Do drink lots of water everyday though so I keep telling myself Im doing at least 1 good thing for my body

I always understood it that Diet Coke has no calories, but tastes like....Diet Coke. Many people (like myself) who love Coke will not touch Diet Coke with a ten foot pole, it tastes so bad. I assumed Coke Zero was Diet Coke (no cals), but made to taste like Coke.

I'm in the process of giving up all Cokes for good. I want to lose weight, but I also have "soft" teeth and it's the soda that's just as bad for your teeth as the sugar, so switching to diet makes no difference.

Just read, Diet Coke/Coke light has also sweetener as substitute of sugar.

Another interesting thing regarding the sweetener: They tested the effect on rats, by giving them a 1,200 times stronger dosage of sweetener.

In a nutshell: By now everything on this planet has been proven to cause cancer at least one time.

Actually, they stopped making C2, and I almost wept when I found out because I thought it was the greatest cola in the entire world, and my husband had just drunk the last one!!! It was half-sugar, half-splenda, and I think it was marketed poorly because whenever I mentioned how much I loved it to someone, they'd never heard of it!!!

I personally think that Coke Zero is disgusting. I wrote a letter of complaint about replacing C2 with Coke Zero to the local Coca-Cola bottler, and someone from Coca-Cola called me and left a message (I didn't hear my cell ring), but when I called him back he wasn't in, and I left messages, but he never called me back...

I just bought some Cherry Coke Zero this weekend. I think I'm in love.

I drink diet coke about once or twice a week, tops. This 2 liter is the first pop I've bought for home in a couple of months.

I used to refuse to touch Diet Coke too. I drank regular Coke for eons, but just this year switched to Diet Coke. I didn't really like it at first, and never thought I'd ever drink it, but now I love it. The other night I had a regular Coke and couldn't believe how disgusting I thought it tasted.

I think I'll pick up a can of Coke Zero and give it a shot. It's worth a try.

I'm with you on that one. I remember one day actually thinking about drinking a can of soda after nearly 6 months of not drinking any soda.. And I felt really bad about even thinking of wanting a soda.

I had to make a compromise though..

The only time I have a coke is with whiskey. haha.
