So, that's individual cans, like from the machine? Will 12 packs be priced same as coke?

Not sure, these were little 8-10 oz bottles on sale for .50.
Looks like some kind of rollout promo..although I didn't look to see if they were already selling them in packs.

I'm actually OK with the diet coke with lime. But I'm willing to try this if it's the same price.

I finally got to where I can enjoy diet coke, but if this is better, and not any worse for you, I'll be testing it out, that's for sure. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm right there with you!

I did see a billboard ad for this the other day after thinking for awhile that they should do this.

I'd rather drink Coke with Agent Orange in it. Seriously.

Diet Rite has had Splenda in it for ages now, and it is excellent.

Diet Rite tastes like shit. If DC with splenda tastes like that - with the nasty aftertaste, I'm gonna stick with DC with cancer. Everyone's tastes vary.

I was wondering what people thought between Diet coke and diet pepsi. I've been drinking whichever is cheaper, but I prefer diet coke because it has more bite and doesn't start tasting like crap once it's not as cold. If you don't drink diet pepsi straight out of the fridge, it'll start tasting like someone's spit.

In any case - this is interesting news and I'll have to go try them... wasn't aware of pepsi one with splenda either.

Ill definitely try this...Im used to the taste of diet now and I cant go back to regular, but I will see if there is an improvement. If price is equal I prefer diet pepsi, but will drink what is cheaper, but looking forward to trying either one with splenda.

Yeah, like everyone else I'll give it a try. Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is great, but I could use some variety.

I prefer Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke, but I totally agree that Diet Pepsi tastes like ass when it starts to get warm.

I'm wary of drinking too much Splenda...

Why are you wary? Is it the websites run by "doctors" explaining the evils of Splenda?



Are you wary of drinking too much aspartame?

I haven't seen this in my area, but I'll be sure to check it out.

Hopefully, making Diet Coke that tastes like Regular Coke won't backfire on them as badly as when they tried to make Regular Coke that tasted like Diet Coke.

Either you really hate the taste of Splenda, or you really like Agent Orange.

Splenda is made from sugar, so it actually tastes like sugar. Diet coke made with Splenda rather than aspertame should have a very light aftertaste if any at all. I'm all for it!
