Is it just me or has diet soda taken a giant leap forward in taste ?

Coke Zero, and Cherry Coke Zero, along with Diet Pepsi Max all seem to have lost about 90% of that nasty diet after taste.

Of course the chemicals are probably killing me

I think they've gotten better too, and as far as I'm concerned, Sprite Zero tastes identical to regular Sprite (but to be fair, I haven't had a regular Sprite in a long time). I guess the artificial sweeteners have gotten better or something?

But yeah, we're all probably dying inside.

Hmm, possibly... but since we've drank diet soda before, I guess we'll never know, lol.

I don't drink diet soda, and never have, so I'll know when I outlive all of you, but then I won't be able to prove it to you.

I've become a complete Coke Zero addict. But Coke Cherry Zero is the most vile and disgusting thing ever created by humankind. Especially when you buy one and take a huge gulp thinking that it's the non-cherry variety. Ewwww.

Apparently the reason the aftertaste has diminished so much is because of a chemical called acesulfame potassium (which has been used in Europe for years but was only recently approved by the FDA). It's a flavor enhancer for artificial sweeteners, which allows the manufacturer to get the same level of sweetness with much less aspartame/splenda/whatever, which means less aftertaste.

Okay, I'll stop geeking now. Or maybe I'll just blame it on the chemicals...

Due to being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes about 6 years ago I've only ever drank 'diet' colas. My favorite would be diet coke with lime...a sort of sweet/sour taste. However the cola we tend to buy for home consumption is a no-name brand that is sweetened with Splenda. I've tried the variations on a theme (cherry, vanilla, etc.) all which do not sit well with my tongue.

I really can tell the difference when I drink any regular sugared colas ...the sweetness is so overpowering I want to puke.

Mind you the dentists are also cautioning the amount we drink due to the acid levels which are eating away our enamils.

Use to drink alot of diet soda. For a while I started getting headakes every day. Dock told me to quit drinking diet stuff, was allergic to artifical sweetners. Seems alot of people are if you consume much of it. Sooo if you get headakes pretty regurarly get off diet. Cured mine.
