I make my own diet sodas (Soda Club) and control the syrup and the bubbles, which is a lot better than the commercial diet stuff and I have no cans or bottles to deal with.

I like Coke Zero, which I usually buy by the case, and once in a while I get the urge for a Diet Sunkist orange soda. Last week-end I bought three 12 packs of Diet Sunkist because Smart & Final had it on sale. The sign said: Three 12 packs for $9.00, limit 8. I was an English major, so I'm still trying to figure out the math on THAT one!

I really don't like artificial sweeteners - they taste so ... artificial. I have a cup of coffee with sugar and flavored creamer in the morning, water at work all day, and usually a glass or two of wine in the evening. Sometimes I have a Cosmo or two instead of wine. In the summer, I like to make sangria or lemonade with a shot of Chambord.

I very occasionally have a regular Coke - it seems like that only drink that goes with tacos, pizza and BLTs (I'm not a beer drinker).

I love Diet Coke and Fresca, but I don't drink them all that often. Most of the time I can be found sipping water. But never regular sodas! I find that they leave an awful aftertaste.

Good to see you MIDFW...........been a long time.
Now, you see I changed it, for you.
This isn't the first time I've been called out for centering.
It is an artistic expression. Plus I just like it better.
Sorry though if it was hard for you to read that way.
I was asked to not do it quite a while back, I relented and then thought, puhhhhhh....

Is it better as far as taste or what's in it? I'm going to look in to this one more.
How much does on pitcher make? I'm trying to figure out the cost compared to the store bought also.

I'm not a soda person either, but if I do indulge in a rum and coke it is all coke, no diet anything - artificial sweeteners no good for you.
