Just heard it mentioned on MacBreak Weekly. Is this a common thing or...?
Huh? Since when?
I guess that makes me the biggest sissy on the planet because I only drink diet soda
I'm even bigger, since I drink 2-3 liters a day.
I don't know either.
It's Coke Zero that's the manly alternative. Allegedly.
Yeah, that's what they said before the show started I just didn't understand it.
Real men drink water.
Diet coke is just a product to make fat people think that they are being slightly more healthy, when in reality they aren't.
Soda is gross. 2 cans a day and you gain a pound a week in empty calories.
Coke Zero tastes like piss.
Diet Dr. Pepper is where it's at.
That's same as saying that red is girls' color. I don't think there are girls' and boys' stuff, that's inequality. One can do what he wants, you have freedom to do that
I don't personally think that this is true, I was just confused
A can of diet coke doesn't even have one calorie.
Probably meant carbs.
It worked something like this: Diet Coke was originally created, pitched and marketed for a predominantly women's market hence the word 'Diet' in its title. Just look at its advertising over the years... and its taste, it doesn't even taste like Coke, far more citrussy.
Coke Zero, like Pepsi Max, are packaged to appeal to men who may see some stigma in buying something with the word 'Diet' in it. May not work that way in practice, but that's the thinking.
I guess I am now
Carbs. Calories. Close enough. All I know is they're things my doctor tells me to avoid that I don't
I've never really considered it a 'girls drink' though I would have good cause to given my mother drinks about a 2 liter of Diet Coke a day and the only other people I've seen drink it in great frequency are other women.
So they're marketed differently? I never knew that
Personally, I never really drink that much soft drink, perhaps the odd glass of Dr Pepper here and there but other than that nothing!
i never realized that cause i dont ever touch the ****.
so the fact that there are no calories probably makes it even worse for you. instead of natural products like sugar that have calories, they use chemicals that don't.
i don't know why anyone would want to consume all those chemicals, it's obviously not good for you
On a similar note, some of my classmates in high school convinced someone two years their junior that you're a real man until you taste your own man-product. Not long after, he came to school triumphantly claiming that he was a man.
What do you mean now?
It's always been a "girl's drink"!
Who says chemicals are bad? Water is a chemical.
And then you met Abbie?
Here's a recent example:
And for Coke Zero:
Nail polish vs. footballers.
I never said it was healthy, just that it barely has any calories. Empty calories is when something has a lot of calories but no nutritional value (like normal Coke).
And normal coke doesn't even use real sugar (at least not in the U.S.) so it's not really much more natural.
It doesn't have carbs either since it doesn't have sugar, just artificial sweeteners.
I like Coke Zero better. Here in portugal at least, I think they all taste different in other countries.
