Default Coke addicts

For any of you who are addicted to coke, like me - not diet coke, or pepsi, or cocaine, but Coca-Cola Classic - I recommend that you try coke zero. I had a couple of diet coke people tell me it tasted just like real coke, and of course I don't trust the opinion of people who drink that nasty shit, so I tried it myself. It really does taste just like regular coke. No funky taste, no funky aftertaste. The only perceptible difference is a slight (and I do mean very slight) lack of sweetness. It's still very sweet, but perhaps just barely not as sweet as regular coke.

Oh, and supposedly it's 95% water.

No, some of us are just slow to trust the newfangled Coke stuff since The New Coke. (Which was actually terrible.)

Yes, New Coke was awful, though many of you aren't old enough to remember it...

I think I'll stick to regular Coke, especially after the time I tried caffine free Coke ( ); it is the only type of pop that I drink...

Just try it, Spammer. Even caffeine free coke tastes more different than coke zero.

You misunderstood me, I hated caffeine free coke, which is why I am hesistant to try the zero brand.

But I'll trust your judgement and pick up a bottle, even though they have really awful commercials promoting the drink. I mean, have you seen them?

I don't drink many fizzy drinks. I prefer coke zero to regular coke or diet coke.
I tried caffeine free coke for the first time a few weeks ago, and I actually like it more than coke zero, as a fizzy drink. but I don't think it's comparable, really. if that makes any sense.

I didn't misunderstand you. I'm just saying that the taste difference is barely perceptible, whereas it was more perceptible with caffeine free coke.

ROFL

Seriously, that was the first thing to pop into my mind when I read the title. Terez, you tease!

As for coca-cola... YUCK, to all the different varieties! Give me rootbeer!

And under no circumstances give me anything diet. ~shudder~

You people are serious snobs. If I drank anything other than diet on a regular basis, my teeth would fall out and I would weight 300 lbs. Wait...if my teeth fell out I wouldn't be able to eat as much, so...problem solved!

But seriously, Diet Coke isn't bad. Diet Pepsi tastes like barely flavored seltzer water, which is not good.

But Diet Dr. Pepper is the best.

Diet Coke is nasty and anyone who drinks it is by default a snob.

I can't stand the after taste that aspartame, splenda, sweet n low... and all those things leave.

So, no diet for me. Besides, if you are worried about your wieght what the hell are you drinking sodas for!? Drink some damn water!

That's what I love about coke zero. No funky aftertaste whatsoever. And I strained to detect aftertaste.

It's always good to ditch calories when you can. I won't sacrifice taste for it, though.

I drink about 8-9 16.9 oz bottles of water a day. I also drink about 3 cans of Diet Caffeine Free Coke. (I had to cut back on the caffeine somehow, and coffee is better.)

I think I'm plenty hydrated. Speaking of, I need to go refill my bottle.
