Diet Coke with Lime

Diet Coke with Lime is Diet Coca-Cola with lime flavor added to it. I’m not a big fan of diet sodas, but this one is pretty decent. It’s smooth and drinkable and doesn’t have much of an aftertaste. The lime flavor adds a nice, refreshing twist. It makes you wonder why they still haven’t released regular Coke with Lime. That would be even better. And it doesn’t make sense to have a diet alternative to a soda that doesn’t exist. All in all, Diet Coke with Lime is a solid zero-calorie soda that tastes better than regular Diet Coke because it has a citric zest and a less noticeable aftertaste. If I was stuck on an island and had a choice between Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, and a coconut, I would probably choose the Diet Coke with Lime 99% of the time. Every once in a while I would take the coconut.

Diet Coke with Grenadine

I’ve been in the service industry for a few years now and I would always joke about someone ordering a diet soda with grenadine. It was never serious, it was just a hypothetical situation in which a fictional moron would order a sugar-free soda and add cherry flavored sugar to it. It’s the kind of thing that George Carlin would make a punchline out of, like getting a veggie burger with bacon on it. It’s why you don’t pour Red Bull in a decaf coffee.

And then one day a guy ordered a Diet Coke with grenadine. He was serious. My first instinct was to talk him out of it. But he insisted. If I have to contribute to somebody’s diabetes for a 20% tip then so be it. He even had refills. That was the day I lost all faith in humanity and he didn’t see anything wrong with it.  No wonder people hate Americans.

Caffeine-Free Diet Coke

Coca-Cola Classic is the number one soda in the world. It’s the best soda; even Pepsi drinkers have to concede to the fact that Coke drinkers are more abundant, more loyal, and more awesome.

That said, I can’t comprehend that they also make a diet version with no caffeine. You just took away two of the best parts of Coke. No sugar and no caffeine? Why don’t you just drink water? It doesn’t even taste like Coke. It tastes like Diet Coke and Diet Coke doesn’t taste anything like Coke. But don’t worry. They’ve already started testing out Coca-Cola Zero Caffeine Free in a few test markets.

I don’t even think you can legally call it a soda if it has no caffeine and no sugar. It’s just flavored brown water with bubbles and chemicals. Refreshing.

Coca-Cola Cherry Zero

Coke’s zero calorie cherry cola is one of the best diet sodas I’ve ever had. There is a slight aftertaste like most diet colas, but it is not as bad as most diet sodas. I don’t usually buy diet drinks but when I do, I usually grab this one.
