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.

  1. I think another large point they are trying to make with coke zero is the look. With it’s sleek black design that implies kicking ass and drinking coke it is clearly a version of diet coke aimed at the male comsumer.… I still preferr beer.

  2. I’ve heard that too. Apparently, Diet Coke has a bit of a feminine image to it and with Zero, they wanted to change that.

  3. I tried Coke Zero and I felt a bit too masculine. Girls starting winking at me. So I switched right back to Diet Coke. Bryan prefers it that way.

  4. Did you know…Diet Coke is actually Diet New Coke? the flavour is actually a holdover from the failed introduction of New Coke in the 80s. Coke Zero is technically Diet Coca-cola Classic, which is the flavour currently contained in the usual red can of Coke.
