Okay, If You Say So

One of the more enjoyable things here is the frequent product reviews that @JohnRoberts posts after he tries something (usually procured from the 99c store). Usually I'll review something if it's really good or really bad. This falls into the latter category. While grocery shopping Sunday I saw single cans of flavored Diet Coke for sale, cheap. One of the flavors intrigued me: "ginger lime." I picked up a can of it. Ginger lime flavor? Okay, if you say so. I've often considered Diet Coke the tofu of diet drinks. By that, I mean it has NO flavor at all. This can showed that, unlike tofu (that will absorb the flavors it's prepared with), adding flavor doesn't help alleviate that situation at all when it comes to Diet Coke. No taste. None. I couldn't even taste ginger or lime. I'll say this: the new Coke Zero is fabulous. I hope Coca-Cola puts its effort into that and discontinues Diet Coke, because it's a waste of everything.

I don't drink diet soda, I did once upon a time when Dr Pepper had Choc covered cherry Diet dr pepper and it was amazing but the aspartame in it was causing major issues with my organs and I had to stop. No taste on the Diet Coke you bought was probably why it was so cheap

The revamped Coke Zero (which they now call “Coke Zero Sugar,” probably to get people to stop calling it “Coke Zero Taste” as an insult/joke) has flavor. Diet Coke, however, still has none. Then there was the old Coke diet soft drink product, Tab, which was just weird tasting.
