We found this at 7-11 the other day, and while somewhat tasty (for diet anyway) what's the deal?

So there's Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Splenda, and now Coke Zero? Not to mention the Diet Coke with various flavors (though no hazelnut yet... I'm holding out for sugarfull Coke with hazelnut before I declare my flavored cola needs met in this lifetime)

We don't have either the Splenda Coke or Coke Zero here; however, we have C2 which is half Coke, half diet Coke, and all disgusting.

You Americans get all the cool drinks.

I talked to our Coke representative today, and he said that Coke Zero is for people who want the taste of regular Coke (or more ideally, Pepsi) but also want it to be sugarfree. I think that means that they've basically given up on the C2 (which is good, because it was a bad idea to begin with). The Diet Coke with Splenda is supposed to be an alternative for regular Diet Coke drinkers.

Coke Zero is apparently part of Coke's "100 Days of Diets" strategy, which will include the rebranding of Fresca, including the release of Sparkling Peach Citrus and Sparkling Black Cherry Citrus flavors to go along with the original Sparkling Citrus flavor.

And for the curious:

Diet Coke: sweetend with aspartame.
Diet Coke with Splenda: sweetend with a blend of Splenda and acesulfame potassium.
Coke Zero: sweetend with a blend of of aspartame and acesulfame potassium.

It's their answer to Pepsi One. Or...wait, was Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda their answer to Pepsi One...geez, I forget.

I was reading a beverage industry trade magazine the other week, & they mentioned that PepsiCo was repositioning Diet Pepsi as their signature brand.

The article (sorry I can't link to it, I only have hard copy) went into detail how the soda industry is moving predominantly to the low calorie/diet side & the major companies are repositioning themselves accordingly.

I guess this would explain the 17 versions of "Diet" Coke available... ;-)

I'll second that. Fresca is just fine as it is: an old-school citrus-flavored drink. My late mom (that's her below in the sig) and grandmother used to drink it all the time, while working together one summer in a hot & steamy dry-cleaners, well before yours truly graced this earth.

So leave it the f*ck alone, Atlanta.

Uhhhh..... no offense, but I think everybody gets it already.

(As an aside, it's about time for me to once again remind everyone that non-users don't see headers or signatures)

Coke Zero made my wife's day. She doesn't like Pepsi all that much so when I brought home the new look Pepsi One she wondered why it wasn't Pepsi Zero. Despite liking Pepsi One slightly, she was ecstatic when she saw the Coke Zero.

I had to begrudgingly admit liking it better too.

Off brand: Has anyone else heard any more info about a diet version of Mountain Dew Live Wire? I haven't been able to find out anything more since someone mentioned it here. Thanks!
