New Diet Coke Plus is nasty

I am addicted to Diet Coke so I bought a small case of Diet Coke Plus the other day. I am not thrilled with its taste. Whatever vitamins and minerals they added to the thing killed it for me.
I'm sticking to the real thing: regular Diet Coke

I didn't like it either. I love regular Diet Coke, but my favorite is Diet Cherry Coke.

Not sure how "New" it is...was introduced last year, but there is one thing we all agree on: it is not good.

Ohhhhh don't get me started.....IMHO none of the "diet" drinks are good for you. Some recent studies say the taste of sweet triggers the same pancreatic reaction as real sugar so those drinks may actually be contributing to weight gain! What's wrong with plain old water?

Nothing wrong with plain old water. I drink plenty of it. I hydrate myself with plain water on hot days.
But I am also addicted to Diet Coke.

I don't do DIET anything. Coke is okay, but I prefer Pepsi, with a piece of lemon.....that is until a recent news piece showed tests of all the germs/bacteria left on the peel/rind from various restaurants.
