You just said Diet Coke sucks!!!! you sure you didn't get cancer from me while drinking original? That is more plausible.

Your right but sugar in regular soda causes diabetes and all sorts of other problems. So the best bet is to just avoid soda intake as much as possible.

Not really, I am not too (unhealthily) fat, btw (in fact go to my profile and theres a pic of me at the very bottom). Plus PEPSI JAZZ BLACKCHERRY AND VANILLA for the win. although pepsi sold "jazz" to coke so,Pepsi Jazz : Blackcherry and Vanilla became Coke Cherry in November of this year.

I actually know a guy who lost 15 pounds just because he stopped drinking soda for a month.

Mind you, he was drinking around 7 cans of Coke a day, none of which were diet.

Yeah, but EVERYTHING causes cancer.

When I was a kid, my parents bought me some bubble gum. And the wrapper stated that the freaking BUBBLEGUM contains ingredients which have been shown to cause cancer in lab rats.

Best case scenario: you get non-terminal cancer from drinking Diet Coke. Then you get to sue The Coca-Cola company for all that they're worth because they didn't have a warning label on the bottle saying "this product causes cancer".

sugar itself doesn't cause diabetes - being unhealthily overweight does.

I won't touch regular Diet Coke, or most diet drinks, anymore due to the aspartame. I won't chance it, especially since my mother is deadly allergic to the stuff. However I don't mind drinking the "With Splenda" version. In fact I kinda prefer the flavor at times (regular coke can become tiresome to me).

I honestly think that both Coke Zero and Diet Coke taste sort of gross. They are both sweet, but they are both nastily sweet. Because they both taste like aspartame. And aspartame, despite being sweet, just tastes sort of gross. It's like if you started eating a rotting corpse and found it to sort of taste like bacon. Well, it's surely nice that the rotting corpse that you're eating sort of tastes like bacon. Because bacon is good. But along with every bite of delicious bacony taste, you also get a little bit of the foul aftertaste that accompanies rotting fat and meat. And while every bite has a little taste of bacon in it, every bite is also 100% disgusting.

That's sort of what "diet" drinks taste like to me. Sure they are sweet, and they sort of taste like real Coke. But to me, the basic aspartame flavor is as foul as rotten meat, and you'd might as well be eating the rotten fat off of a dead bloated pig's carcass.

However, let it also be said that I drink Coke Zero.

back to the original question - I think people actually believe they are doing something healthy by drinking it over normal coke.

OR, there's a lot of diabetics out there.

BUT, It can't be because it tastes good.

ALSO, thanks to advertising, people now believe Coke and Pepsi are mutually exclusive; in that you have to like one or the other and then defend that decision to your death. It's ok people to enjoy and drink both. In fact its kind of ridiculous to actually say you'd drink one fizzy sugary cola beverage but can't stand another similar fizzy sugary cola beverage - that's some pretty good mind control.

yep totally agree - except I won't actually drink coke zero. This word aspartame is new to me - is it because I'm in Australia and we call it something else. I thought all out diet drinks over here contained nutrasweet? maybe I'll do a quick google search. EDIT: ah yep apparently the same thing.

For real, it's freaking soda. It's not like choosing a fine wine over a crappy wine in a box. It's SODA. It's water, suger, carbonation, and articifical flavors. THAT'S IT. Being picky about competing brands of soda is like saying that Kool-Aid is awesome but Flavor-Aid sucks. It's THE SAME STUFF. Is it sweet? Is does it sort of taste like whatever kind of fruit is shown on the front of the package? Then it's all the same. Kool-Aid, fried pig skins, and soda are all pretty much crappy drinks. And just like fried pig skins, it's hard to screw that up. Is it pig skin? Is it fried? Then congratulations, that's about as good as any other pig skin. I'm not gonna be a devoted eater of Zapp's fried pig skins, but then turn my nose up at Frito-Lay's pigskins. They're ****ing fried pigskins. It's GARBAGE food. Just as macaroni and cheese is like the macaroni and cheese of pasta, fried pig skins and pig's feet and chitterlings are the macaroni and cheese of pork, and Kool Aid and soda are the macaroni and cheese of beverages. No matter how good it is, it's still just crap. Just sugar, water, and/or caffeine. That's what you want, that's what you always get, so just drink the crap and stop complaining.

They both suck. The meaning of the diet coke is also just useless. Has aspertan, and it makes you hungry and dehydrated, there's nothing diet about it other then having a sugar substitute thats worse for your health then regular sugar. I learned about this about 5-6 years ago. I prefer drinking water, milk, tea. All coke is just gross.

I find drinking Diet Coke a little idiotic, it offers 0 of everything and still can't be considered good for you.

We're all better off drinking water, it wont mess your teeth up ( depending where or what your drinking it from)

Lol, Well i absolutely hate the taste of both of them.

However Coke Zero is sooo much better. at first i couldnt tell the difference but after drinking a normal 2 litre bottler per day of it then having to drink coke diet i can tell you there is a huge difference. And coke normal taste like putrid disgusting crap. OMGi often wonder why they even bother making the de-caffinated version of coke what would be the point of having the awfull taste of normal coke if you dont get the shaking feeling after drinking it?

It's sweet and bubbly without ~150 calories and ~40 g of sugar. Refined white sugar cripples your body too (seriously, refined white sugar creates unstable carbon in your body which rob your healthy cells of nutrients) so you might as well take your chances with cancer and be generally thinner and younger looking.

Diet sodas don't necessarily mean healthy. I don't know why people continually to fall for the false adds but I prefer the original since it doesn't really taste bitter.

Pepsi tastes better than coke does in a can.

No it doesn't. You know when you puke a little in your mouth, that's pretty much what Pepsi tastes like.

i like diet coke because the fat just melts off my figure whenever i drink it, thus i dont have to exercise
