    Lime Coke would be perfect if you could remove the Coke and add a little Triplesec and Tequila...

    Why does it have to be 'diet'? Diet drinks suck.

    That's why the industry should move to Splenda - its so much better than equal or the pink stuff. Shasta is actually using it in their diet sodas, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere locally.

    I like lime soda but I can't imagine liking lime in cola as much as lemon or cherry.

    I wouldn't be surprised if their food technologists come up with another 2 combinations this year. I know that coffee is the rage, but is Coca-Cola (or Pepsi-Cola) falling that far in the overall beverage market?

    yummy!

    I happen to drink a lot of diet coke. I agree, it is an aquired taste, but now I prefer it. Regular coke now seems too heavy and sugary. I didn't much like lemon diet coke but I am excited for this one..

    I drink a ton of diet soda (probably literally a ton, over a year). I much prefer diet Pepsi to diet Coke; All varieties of Diet Coke have a strong, super-sweet aftertaste, much like their original "Tab" diet soda had.

    Re: yummy!

    Have you or anyone you know experienced memory loss that's been connected to aspartame used in diet products?

    I think it's because there are a lot of us who despise diet drinks because we get a metallic taste in our mouths from the aspartame. Adding a little bit of flavoring lessens it and makes the drink tolerable. I didn't drink diet anything until Diet Coke with Lemon. I don't know about lime, though. Maybe I'll have to add some rum...... ;-)

    I tried the Vanilia Pepsi and didn't care for the taste. The lime or lemon doesn't sound interesting at all. I do like Cherry Coke though. It is a great alternative drink. I will admit that it is not as good as the original. Growing up I remember having fountain Coke with the cherry flavor added at the resturant.

    Alternative choices


    Have you seen any Diet Rite or Diet RC products where you live? Those are my diet colas of choice as they also make use of Splenda brand sucralose.

    We use Splenda all the time at my house... boxes and boxes of the stuff for diet stuff...

    No massive bitter aftertaste...


    Good stuff.

    We're really not getting the full range over here in the UK.

    Vanilla coke, love the stuff. Always liked Cream Soda when I was a kid but can't find it anywhere and it was too sweet last time I drank it, this is WAY better!

    Cherry Coke rules when I can't buy vanilla.

    Diet coke doesn't taste too nice to me, I don't like it. Even pepsi tastes better than diet coke to me, it's got this horrible synthetic sort of taste, absolutely minging.

    How do I know I won't like diet coke with lemon or lime? could be great.

    Going on a tangent here but does anyone find people who buy diet drinks absolutely hillarious sometimes?

    Someone orders a 12" Deep Pan Pizza in some take-away, spends loads extra getting it all piled up with extra toppings and stuff, totally holding up the que 'cos you're starving and just want something simple off the menu and then you can get a taxi home. Then, while you're still there waiting, they get the sudden realisation that people might think they're greedy so they order a diet coke with it instead of a normal one as if it some how redeams them of their obvious greed on the pizza order.

    Cracks me up when that sort of thing happens. :D

    Perhaps the person enjoys the taste of diet drinks? A good 75% of the people I know drink diet drinks, whether they are dieting or not, and whether they need to be dieting or not. I enjoy pizza, and I usually order it with pretty much every topping on the menu.. but nothing would ruin dinner faster or more completely than drinking a sugar-filled soda. I find the taste cloying and nearly enough to invoke a gag reflex. But I don't deride people for ordering, and paying for, and enjoying their food... Guess I missed the recruitment poster for the Food Police.

    Wait.... I can't remember....

    I started to drink diet coke for a while. I probably drank 3 a day, then I got horrible headaches. (And I am not usually prone to headaches.) I stopped drinking them, tried to reduce stress.. they went away, but I think it was the caffeine or something in the diet cokes that were messing with my head...

    Diet Hansens uses Splenda.

    I bought some on accident - diet drinks taste nasty.

    I haven't seen any mention of Diet Vanilla Coke in this thread (or did I miss it?).

    It's probably my favourite flavour here (ins Australia). The vanilla does an excellent job of hiding the disgusting Diet Coke/sweetener taste. Regular Vanilla is waaaaay to sweet and sugary.

    I used to like Diet Dr Pepper too (but not as much as the real deal), but Dr Pepper didn't do too well here. I think it's almost extinct :(

    Coke

    Love the plain old Coke and could drink it all day long if it wasn't for such a heavy dose of sugar. I think they should sell Cokes at a colder temperature though, for me it only works when it's chilled down.

    I like peeling off the label on the bottles and just staring at this strange not so healthy looking black liquid in a bottle sitting on my desk. Weird that the product is black but I associate it as red.

    Pepsi-Max is my usual drink.....except when I start to get jumpy then I drink water.

    My most uhealthy food combination is a large packet of chips washed down with copious amounts of coke, but you don't really eat the chips you just drink the coke while you have a mouthful of chips and it turns into a sugary salty fatty wonderful party. aghhhhhhhhhh *drool

    ps Cherry Coke tastes like cough medicine.

    Re: Coke

    I do prefer just plain Classic Coke to diet, lime, or lemon.

    You should try fountain Cherry Coke, that is a very special taste. Maybe I like Cherry Coke, because I don't really mind cough syrup. It's better than coughing.
