Have Coke (light) will travel...

This is my sustenance for life, so I thought I had better write a review about it.
Has anyone not tasted Diet Coke or commonly known as Coca-Cola Light in some parts of the world?
I hope not! It's the best thing ever, for me. Say what you may, I'm addicted to this drink. Not just any soft drinks, but simply Diet Coke.

I have heard some who loves Coke but not Diet Coke. They told me its the taste. And I agree. Some parts of the world, Diet Coke tasted differently. I suspect it has to do with where it's canned. Anyway, as many parts of the world as I've had been to, I must say I will still pick the Diet version over the original version. Forget about Pepsi, 7-up, Sprite or whatever canned drinks there are out there in the world. Diet Coke it is for me! Over beer, over red wine even!

Where lies the power of the black liquid, you may ask. Well, it's the gassy nature of the drink, the burping action after filling oneself with it and the coldness of the drink! That's my formula for great satisfaction! 

Why sustenance? I drink it like it's water. I know, it's unhealthy but who cares? Ask any coke drinker and they'll tell you so.
I realise how powerful Diet Coke was when on one of my trips hiking, I remember it very clearly, in Norway, on the way down from Preikestolen, I was without liquid. I had been hiking up to the cliff area for 3 hours and stayed up there for an hour. On the way down, it was the thought of Diet Coke that kept me all the way until I reached the hostel near the lake. Boy, the thought of Diet Coke was so motivating that while I was dying of thrist, I did make my way down safely. All because of Diet Coke!!!
God Bless "Diet Coke"!!!

I would say you really like your Diet Coke! More power to you. I, too, have a strong penchant for this drink and keep it in the fridge where it's nice, cold and frothy.

About this drink


Diet Coke (also known as Diet Coca-Cola) is a sugar-free soft drink produced and distributed by The Coca-Cola Company. It was introduced in the United States on Independence Day in 1982 as the first new brand since 1886 to use the Coca-Cola trademark. The product quickly overtook Tab in sales. Its taste can be described as "crisp" and differs significantly from regular Coke.

Diet Coke was sweetened with aspartame after the sweetener became available in the United States in 1983; however, to save money, this was originally in a blend with saccharin. After Diet Rite cola advertised its 100 percent use of aspartame, and the manufacturer of NutraSweet (then, G.D. Searle & Company) warned that the NutraSweet trademark would not be made available to a blend of sweeteners, Coca-Cola switched the formula to 100 percent NutraSweet, later switching back and doing without the NutraSweet trademark. Diet Coke from fountain dispensers still contains some saccharin to extend shelf life.

In other countries, in which cyclamates are not banned (as they were in the U.S. and the United Kingdom in 1970), Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Light may be sweetened with a blend containing cyclamates, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium.

In 2005, under pressure from retailer Wal-Mart (which was impressed with the popularity of Splenda sweetener), the company released a new formulation called "Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda". Sucralose and acesulfame potassium replace aspartame in this ...
