The question is, would it make me switch from Diet Coke? I drink three of these a day, seven days a week.

One problem with many artificial sweeteners is that products containing them have a shorter shelf life than products that are 'naturally' sweetened.

When was the last time you had a soft drink that was "naturally sweetened?" High fructose corn syrup is NOT natural, regardless of what the corn growers try to tell you.

That said, I enjoy both Coke Zero and Sprite Zero, but I grew up drinking Pepsi Cola, before diet drinks and when all sodas were sweetened with sugar, and I really prefer Pepsi Max. It tastes like what I remember Pepsi tasting like.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!
