As most of you know, I’m a big fan of Coke soft drinks. My current favourite is the gold-canned, caffeine-free Coke Classic. I’ve tried just about every variation that’s come along in the last ten years: vanilla Coke, Coke with lime, black cherry vanilla Coke, and even Coke with ice in it.
I’ve been very wary of the diet stuff mostly because it tastes like crap (sorry Sarah). I’m also a bit wary of the artificial sweetners which I don’t completely trust as being non-carcinogenic. The lounge at work though has started to offer Coke Zero, a new offering from the Coca-Cola company. I’ve tried it and I think it tastes much better than Diet Coke. There’s apparently half the aspartame and they’ve tried to make it taste much closer to normal Coke.
I’m trying to cut down on my sugar comsumption, so this seems like a somewhat workable alternative to not drinking Coke at all. I am afraid that I’m just trading sugar for cancer-causing agents.
