Zero Sugar Dr Pepper
Diet soft drinks are all the rage, that is of course unless you think they're disgusting. Back in the old days (last year) if you wanted a sugar free Coke or Coke brand drink you'd go for the Diet version. Welcome to the modern age, when choice is everything and taste is nothing.
Here's the low down on Coke Zero (and the other Zero products) as found on Yahoo Answers:
Ok so that's the technical aspect to it all but how does it taste? Well I've already tried Coke Zero and it tastes better than Diet Coke that's for sure yet the same is not true of Dr Pepper Zero.
"Diet Coke - Although it came out two years before “New” coke, diet coke that we’ve enjoyed since the 80s is the sugar free form of new coke. In other words, it’s based on the formula for the “New Coke” that wasn’t released yet (it debuted in 1985) when Diet Coke hit the market (1983), and is also now no longer available. (the New coke). Coca Cola has no plans at this time to discontinue the aspartame based Diet Coke, as it is third in the soda market. (After Coke and Pepsi, respectively.)
Coca Cola Zero - Sweetened with aspartame and acesulfame potassium., the reason this is different than Diet Coke is Coca Cola Zero is a sugar free version of the Classic Coke formulation. In other words, this is meant to be a sugar free version of the red cans of Coke you know and may or may not love. It has a redder, deeper color close to the color of Classic Coke and tastes far less like a diet soda (by many accounts) than Diet Coke."
Simply put... it's like Dr Pepper but less sweet and with a pretty gross after taste. Really you start off thinking "hmmm this is ok" then end up thinking "ugghhh"!
This whole removing sugar from sugary drinks is a false economy in my opinion. If you want a healthy drink then buy water or juice. Otherwise just go for the plain old high sugar fizzy pop that you know and love.
"Zero Added Sugar - Great Taste" Who are they kidding!?
