My Hero – Zero

As someone who absolutely detests most diet soda (pop) I am pleased to announce an actually palatable carbonated diet cola.

Coke Zero

It’s so much like the older version of Coke (before Coke-Classic, and the “New Coke” of the mid-1980’s, I had to do a double-take.

My local Meijer grocery store handed out dixie-cup size samples of the newest “pause that refreshes” and I was stunned. Diet you say? HA! I had to go read the ingredients:

Coke Zero:
Carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, Aspartame, potassium benzoate…

Diet Coke:
Carbonated water, caramel color, Aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate…

Is the jockeying of one ingredient the difference? Who knows, but I can tell you that the one think I really miss about the original coke is that it was not as sweet at the newer versions. This diet-treat seems to capture that crispness.

So – once again Coke – +1

Way to go!

maybe it’s just me…
