For health reasons I've been trying to get off regular Coke for a while. Almost all the diet drinks I've tried are awful....the only sugar-free substitute that's worked for me (so far) are those 4-C Totally Lite Fruit Juice Powder Packets that you add to water.
I'll definitely check out the diet pepsi vanilla but I gotta admit those flavor powder packets make a pretty good-tasting drink. Plain water is just too bland to have with dinner, and I already fucked myself up with too much regular soda in the past :bigcry:so that shit is out.
It's relative. Compared to plain old water, you're correct. But when one is used to drinking Coke and beer, a no calorie alternative is better.
...and found a Pur filter pitcher that sits in the refrigerator produced the best tasting water. The water tastes great, I don't have to lug bottles from the store to my house, and I don't have to pay through the nose for water. Now that's what I drink. In the morning, I have an N.O. Brew iced coffee, but the rest of the day it's filtered water. I'll drink iced tea at a restaurant if it's decent. I see no need for diet drinks. They taste better than they did in the 70s, but not nearly good enough to actually drink.
