Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi?

medussamedussa Posts: 12,993Registered Users
I've seen a few references to diet coke on threads in the past few weeks. Are some of you just saying, "diet coke" when you mean some other diet soda? You know, like people saying Band-Aid, when they are simply referring to a bandage (possible Curad or Nexcare)?

I only ask because I cannot stand diet coke and cannot believe how many people drink that stuff. When it comes to diet soda, Diet Pepsi tastes the best to me. When it comes to non-diet soda, Coke is the best. It's like drinking liquid sugar. :D

Which is your favorite?

This question is intended for diet soda drinkers only. Do not reply to post, "I don't drink diet soda, I don't need to." And definitely do not respond if you're going to post, "diet soda is poison, I don't touch the stuff." :lol:

Thanks.

    I actually drink diet COKE, but I drink regular PEPSI. Diet Pepsi tastes like nothing to me, and regular Coke is so syrupy gross.

    I love Diet Coke. I love the smell of it and I like it particularly. I don't like Coke or any form of Pepsi or any other carbonated drinks really, just Diet Coke. Love it.

    I prefer to drink Diet Coke. But if it's not available, I can drink Diet Pepsi.

    You know this could easily turn into another race thread like so many of the others here. Why only dark pop? :evil: :wink:


    I actually prefer Dt Sprite. If I have no other choice then Dt Pepsi it is.

    Soda is a killer. Diet soda is even worse filled with artificial chemicals that your body cannot properly metabolize.

    Diet Pepsi. More specifically, diet wild cherry Pepsi. That stuff is yummy.

    I'm from PA and just ate an icepop (lemon-lime) and drank a bottle of pop (real Coke).
    I don't drink diet pop (not because I don't need to, just because I don't like it), but I'll drink some of my guy's diet Coke if I have to, so if I did drink diet pop regularly it would be diet Coke.

    Diet Coke has a wierd lemon aftertaste, so I prefer diet Pepsi. Really like the caffeine-free. It tastes different than reg. diet Pepsi, but I don't know why. I will drink diet Coke it that's what's available. I do not like sugared drinks, especially soda, but if there's no diet available, I'll choose Coke over Pepsi.

    I'm not a soda drinker much at all and I prefer the clear sodas (any company, as long as I know what I'm drinking so I'm not surprised by the taste!), but if we're talking diet sodas, I MUCH prefer Diet Coke to Pepsi.

    There seems to be just a few of us that feel this way.

    Ditto to those who prefer caffeine free diet-pepsi to regular diet-pepsi. It tastes better for some reason.

    Girl you don't need that diet stuff! Not to mention it's bad for you :P I would drink diet DP, if I drank it...I know my folks love it. Tastes like real DP. I can't believe I can't get DP in NYC...only on the street...
    But of your choices, I would go w/ DP...
