Default I like Coke Zero almost as much as real coke......

I know this is not something we should partake in frequently, but a friend & I were discussing my inability to be happy with substituting diet coke for coke. He told me about his friend who swore coke zero was just as good. Skeptical, I tried one today and agreed! So if there's anyone who is sometimes tempted to reach for a real coke, try a zero instead!

Thanks for the tip! I will have to try Coke Zero. BTW... I love Diet Dr. Pepper. Have you tried that? I had a hard time switching to diet pop but I think it tastes most like the regular version than any other I have tasted

I'm a Coke Zero fanatic. I drank diet coke, although I didn't really like it, but I'm love with Coke Zero. I'm not so much of a fan of diet dr. pepper, but Pibb Zero is almost as amazing as Coke Zero. I love them both.

I also love Coke Zero. It tastes so much better than regular Diet Coke to me.

86 pounds down, now for the next bit - fourth short term goal (back to 100 down):

I guess it's like when they came out with Pepsi One vs diet pepsi, my bil was a huge fan, but it didn't quite so much for me. i haven't tried the DocPep or pibb bc I don't like those even in full strenght, too spicy for me! lol Glad there are some other fans out there

Cherry Coke Zero!! That's AWESOME stuff right there! So is Diet Dr Pepper and Diet Pepsi Jazz Caramel Creme. I want to try the Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr Pepper though I haven't yet... the cherry vanilla one was pretty good. I've never had Diet Mr Pibb... I didn't even know it existed...

Another recommendation: Diet Mountain Dew. That "tuned up taste" is quite an improvement.

I LOVE Coke Zero!! I like it better than regular actually ... regular is too harsh and diet is too ... "fizzy" or something lol.
I LOVE it!

Not totally sure what my 'final' final goal will be yet ... we'll see when I get there.

My weakness is Diet Mountain Dew Code Red. I'm truly so hooked that we rarely buy it by the case because I drink it too fast. I'll pick up a couple 20 ounce bottles at the gas station instead. It's of course more expensive that way, but if I have a case I won't drink anything else.

I do love diet cherry colas too (whether Pepsi or Coke), but I can control myself a little better with those. An old obsession was a mildly carbonated diet Hawaiaan punch. I couldn't tell you if I like Code Red better, because I haven't seen it in years. Anyone remember it, or know if they still make it somewhere?

I used to love love love regular Coke. I think Coke zero is pretty good but I think Pepsi one is the best. Funny because I never cared for regular Pepsi (although I always preferred diet pepsi over diet coke).

If you like Coke Zero, I'd recommend trying Pepsi one to compare. Pepsi one helped me get through finals week and writing long papers during my masters program.

I am not a big fan of either Coke Zero, or Pepsi One. I prefer the original Diet Coke over them both...maybe I'm wierd. I just don't like them at all.

My favorite diet sodas:

~Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper

(I tried the Diet Dr. Pepper Jazz Caramel...tasted like fizzy laundry detergent! Blech...)

~Diet Mountain Dew

~Diet Barq's Root Beer

~Diet Dr. Pepper

~Diet Crush orange soda

I like Coke Zero BETTER than regular Coke. I also love the Vanilla Coke Zero, although it's hard to find.

Back to school goal!

i used to drink coke anytime, anywhere, hate diet coke but then... i cleaned a stain on my sweater, oil from my car, with coke. so i decided to avoid coke always, it cleans oil, it unclogs toilets, jesus, it has to be bad for us, no matter how it tastes.

When I treat myself to a soda, it's usually Cheery Coke Zero. So yummy! I gave up caffeine for lent though so I had to find a substitute...Tava really hits the spot. Have you tried it? No calories or caffeine!
