DIET COKE….There sure are a lot of different versions of Diet Coke these days, aren’t there? There’s ordinary Diet Coke (sweetened with aspartame), there’s C2 (half aspartame, half sugar), there’s a new drink called Coca Cola Zero (primarily a marketing gimmick, as near as I can tell, but sweetened with a combination of aspartame and acesulfame potassium), and now there’s Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda.

Anyway, I tried the Splenda stuff today, and it was great. Tastes just like regular Coke and had no aftertaste. Highly recommended if you’re a cola drinker who doesn’t like diet cola but could do without the calories of regular stuff. Also good for people like my wife who are allergic to aspartame.

DISCLOSURE NOTE: I receive no income or benefits of any kind from The Coca-Cola Company or any of its subsidiaries. In fact, I receive regrettably little income or benefits from anybody aside from the Washington Monthly. However, I’m certainly open to negotiations aimed at changing this situation.

ANOTHER NOTE: Crikey, the Coca-Cola website sucks. What’s more, it sucks in only the way that a website can suck that’s had millions of dollars poured into it. Sheesh.
