Coke Zero is not Diet Coke revisited. When originally developed, Diet Coke was made as the 'diet' version of the so called "New" Coke. While the New Coke flunkered, its Diet version did well and was kept in the market.

However, in the rest of the world, Diet Coke practically does not exist. They have Coca Cola Light, which is the diet version of the Old Coke or what we know today in the U.S. as Coca Cola Classic. Coke Zero is very similar to Coca Cola Light (I do not want to say that it is the same since I have not been able to verify this).

Personally, I like Coke Zero better than Diet Coke.
Geez, that is confusing. Where did you find that information at?

I will say that Coca Cola Light tasted different in Bulgaria and Italy. I never found a version of Coke or Coca Cola LIght that tasted the same in Europe. why? Who the heck knows!!

Maybe I was not clear.

Diet Coke is the diet version of the 'New' Coke, launched in the nineties in the U.S. and which flunkered and was taken out of the market and replaced by Coca Cola's old formula (or Coca Cola 'Classic').

Coke Zero is similar to Coca Cola Light, which is the diet version of Coca Cola's old formula (or Coca Cola 'Classic').

Clear?

As such, Coke Zero should taste closer to regular Coke than Diet Coke.

Clear?

Hmmmmm, still I find it interesting.

I never knew that Diet Coke was the diet version of 'New' coke which was nasty to begin with!!

Well I find the taste of Coke Zero to taste better t han Coca cola Light.

To be honest in bulgaria, Coke tasted like Pepsi and Pepsi was some sweet sweet sugar drink.
