I can't get in to diet sodas...they all taste like chemicals to me. Chances are the only time you'll catch me drinking one is if I really need a caffeine fix and it's the only thing around.

I don't know why people say Diet Dr. Pepper tastes like the real thing. I would say Diet Pepsi is the closest, in that it tastes like Pepsi except it's less a kick in the face with the sugar. None of them actually taste like the real thing; I guess they can't say, "MM, THIS SODA IS TOLERABLE" in the commercial. :lol:

Evidently quite a few people, or it would never sell.
Suckers.
All of them.


The shit in diet soda is 100x worse than the fake sugar in regular.....
But I do agree.  The word 'diet' sells.

Well, I sincerely hope if someone were trying to diet they wouldn't drink soda at all. It's a bad beverage any way you spin it.

I drink a lot of diet soda, but it is more for caffeine than anything else. Mostly I drink Materva, a Caribbean herb soda.


It is made in Miami, I haven't seen it much outside of South Florida.

Well, for what it's worth, switching helped me lose 20 lbs back when I was in highschool. And it helped me cut back in general over time.

These days, when I do have soda, it's usually real Dr. Pepper but the Diet is close enough to get by with also in a pinch.

It isn't to say that the 'diet' isn't lower in calories.
Just much more chemical to make it taste somewhat decent.  Can have a much worse long-term health effect on a body.

I know the drinks that are 0-10 calorie per serving but carbonated mess my system up bad.  Bloated, acne, depression, high blood pressure (same goes for regular...more the caffeine, but worse on the chemicals), etc....

I rarely drink diet, my theory is if I'm gonna put junk in my system it might as well be the real thing.  Ass-partame, aptly named so, gives me horrible gas.  So anything with equal, splenda etc is off limits.

However, I don't know what it is but for some reason, Coke Zero, Pepsi Max, and Pepsi One are just sooo damn good!

Splenda is not aspartame. It's sucralose. You may have the same effect from it though. Just wanted to clarify.

Wait, you mean to mix or to drink alongside?

Diet Coke with Splenda, Coke Zero, Pepsi One, Pepsi Max. I also like Sprite Zero, Diet Sierra Mist and almost any diet citrus soda.

I drink a lot of diet soda, but it is more for caffeine than anything else. Mostly I drink Materva, a Caribbean herb soda.

You need to send some of that shit my way, homie.

Does your vagina also hurt when you drink diet sodas? :P
