Default Diet soft drinks

I found this really good cola at Costco - and I don't really do softdrinks, diet or otherwise...so it must be good!

It is called Kirkland Signature diet cola - to me it tastes better than Diet Coke and it was a lot cheaper too. It also came in regular cola.

Thumbs up Another surprisingly good pop...

I got "suckered" into trying a new 7-Up product this weekend. It's called 7-Up Plus. And it is AMAZING! It's a blend of 7-Up and fruit juice, sweetened with Splenda (and, admittedly, another sweetener I didn't recognize). It also has calcium and Vitamin C added to it...

I generally dislike 7-Up (I'm allergic to caffeine so I get really sick of lemon-lime pop), but this stuff is really good...

My boyfriend brought home the 7-Up plus just last night and I tried it. NOT BAD!! I still wouldn't consider it healthy but it's only got like 10 calories in the can.

I don't drink a lot of soda but I know that if I do I need to be drinking diet soda. I have never been able to tolerate diet Coke or diet Pepsi but yesterday I tried a diet Dr. Pepper and found it to be pretty good!

I am addicted to Diet Pepsi Vanilla. I have it whenever a craving for sweets hits.

I find diet sprite not too bad but it does have an aftertaste of sweetener.

The worst diet drink ever is diet gingerale of any kind - yechh!!!!!

diet dr pepper really does taste just like the regular dr pepper. I wish they would share their secret. I've heard it has prune juice in it and more caffine than anything else. but I'm still addicted to diet coke. I'm trying to ween myself off of it with iced tea but some times I just need a diet coke.

I am so happy that I'm not the only one addicted to Diet Vanilla Pepsi!!! I HATE diet sodas. I mean HATE. I'm diabetic and that coupled with weight loss goals makes it impossible for me to drink regular soda and diet is so awful most of the time. Diet Vanilla is my ONLY exception. I have no problem drinking it and love the flavor. The vanilla completely covers the diet aftertaste. You can't even tell it's a diet drink in my opinion.

I called 7up about that "unknown" sweetener and they don't have any information on it and the lady AND her manager haven't a clue about it's origen. Kinda scary huh? BTW,, I love it too! LOL

Oooh Diet DR PEPPER! It rocks! I also like Fanta Lite, and diet Sprite isn't bad. But yes the definite DIET drink is Diet Vanilla coke!

I gave up coke of all kinds at the beginning of this year (with a couple of exceptions, when there was nothing else diet or was the only thing they had) and I've hardly noticed, I try to drink water or sully skimmed milk instead.

I too am addicted to Diet Coke! Drink waaaay too much sometimes. I tried the 7UP and didn't care for that at all. It tasted like flavored seltzer water. I've also tried some of those flavored waters-yuck!

Ooops! sorry for butting in on your thread. Thought it was the food thread

How can they not know what is in the 7up?


Love Coke, but I can't have Nutrasweet. So I try to stay away from pop.
