It's my understanding that Diet Coke is basically a low calorie version of New Coke.

Sodas are weird sometimes (All the time).

Coke Zero because it's more edgy.

#3 Edited by Trilogy (2645 posts) -

I was just reading up on Coke Zero earlier (real busy day), and apparently it's marketed towards young men. The idea is that younger guys perceive diet coke to be a feminine product so they had to re brand Coke Zero as a bevarage for people with tesiticles. A lot of soda companies do this (see dr pepper 10). A usual trope is that it is marketed as tasting exactly like the non diet version.

Coca Cola is the worst, and Coke Zero tastes more like Coca Cola than Diet Coke, therefore Coke Zero is more the worst. Diet Coke wins.

They both suck, give me the classic

#6 Edited by Nev (540 posts) -

Don't care for either. I drink regular Coca-Cola regularly, though.

#7 Edited by ArbitraryWater (11485 posts) -

Coke Zero is totally ok, but if I'm drinking Coke I'm probably drinking the real stuff.

#8 Posted by Ezakael (915 posts) -

I think they both taste terrible but if I had to choose I'd go Coke Zero, solely because it has a cooler name.

#9 Posted by hidys (1029 posts) -

Coke Zero easily.

#10 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

Diet Coke but I drink both interchangeably.

#11 Posted by zFUBARz (624 posts) -

I've come to like coke zero a lot. much less aspertainy but still not too sweet like regular cola's

@trilogy: Makes a lot of sense really, well from a marketing perspective, diet is the white or silver cans, and yeah generally you don't hear about young men on diets other than for serious health issues. So bring in the black can, make it a bit of a stronger taste and lose the diet name.

Frankly I do still miss my Jolt Cola from my youth, that shit made my teeth buzz.

I like Coke Zero, it is a new, exciting Coke Brand that the younger generation can really get behind. Be yourself -- Coke Zero.

#13 Edited by jsnyder82 (728 posts) -

They taste exactly the same.

#14 Posted by Happenstance (462 posts) -

Diet Coke for me. I dont really like the taste of regular or Coke Zero.

#15 Posted by Hailinel (23928 posts) -

Coke Zero has a good taste to it. Diet Coke, not so much.

I think that the difference is in the food acids and caffeine content.

zero - Food Acid 330 and less caffeine than diet.

diet - Food Acid 331 and more caffeine than zero.

Zero is diet coke.... for man.

Also, at last check, Pepsi was #2 in the US, but things change.

edit - awww shit! Diet Coke bumped Pepsi a few years back. Also, is it offensive for an Australian to call Pepsi "Confederacy Coke"?

I will never understand people who think they taste even remotely similar. Coke Zero tastes a lot more like actual Coke. Diet Coke might as well not even be Coke with how different it tastes.

#18 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1551 posts) -

Pepsi Light all the way ... I can't drink regular cola/pepsi, way too sweet for me.

#19 Posted by Sergio (2053 posts) -

Coke Zero, it tastes closer to Coke. Diet Coke is too sweet, unless you get used to it.

#20 Edited by BestUsernameEver (4825 posts) -

Never understood this, if you're going to drink coke, just drink normal coke, every version is just as bad for you, and if you care about your health to drink a diet coke, you're doing the healthy thing wrong.

#21 Edited by Slay3r1583 (601 posts) -

Fuck any kind of diet pop. I only drink regular ass Coke/Pepsi/etc.

#22 Posted by Ben_H (3312 posts) -

Diet Pepsi

If I can't have Diet Pepsi then I have Coke Zero. Diet Coke is nasty so to answer the question Coke Zero all the way (remember when it used to be red cans with black writing rather than black cans with red writing?).

I don't like regular Pepsi at all but Diet Pepsi is the second best cola product. Regular Coca Cola is the best but that has too many calories for my slow metabolism to handle.

#23 Posted by nail1080 (1975 posts) -

Never understood why soft drinks are glorified on this website so much. It's just sugar sugar sugar, and in the case of crap like Diet Coke it's artificial sweeteners. If you want to increase your chances of getting cancer or diabetes sure go ahead and drink coke and crap throughout your week. Also, enjoy having yellow smelly teeth, wooo, soft drinks are just so cool.

#24 Posted by Vonocourt (2123 posts) -

@nail1080: I've never seen someone come off as an elitist on the topic of sodas before. Good job?

I don't like either, but I guess Diet Coke maybe. I'd drink RC Cola over Zero.

#25 Edited by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

Regular fucking Coke.

#27 Edited by MattyFTM (14347 posts) -

They're virtually identical. They are slightly different, I'm sure, but the difference is so slight it's not worth debating about. The primary difference between the products are the marketing, not the products themselves.

Diet. Always. I dislike the mouth-feel (ze mous feel) of non-diet colas.

Got a water cooler at home and have been drinking water almost exclusively for a month or so now. I don't really miss sodas.

#29 Posted by deathstriker666 (1337 posts) -

Diet coke tastes like chemicals. I don't know how anybody can drink it, it doesn't taste anything like the original. Coke Zero is far superior.

@mattyftm: You could say the same with lagers or chardonnay, but to most people taste does matter.

#30 Posted by Icicle7x3 (1173 posts) -

As long as it's a bonus soda it doesn't matter.

#31 Posted by GS_Dan (1402 posts) -

Zero. I prefer the taste of regular but so much fucking sugar.

#32 Posted by Matt (958 posts) -

Coke Zero all the way. Remove the abomination that is Diet Coke from this earth.

Water

#34 Edited by OldGuy (1516 posts) -

Coke made with sugar (get that HFCS out of here) in glass bottles is the only way to go (and, since it's hard to come by and a lot more expensive I drink less of it, which isn't a bad thing)...

Exactly. People just see 'diet' and think that means better.

They both taste chemically to me, but the most refreshing chemical I find to be ......

Coke Zero

Not being an elitist, just reminding people that soda is nothing but filth (just look at the amount of sugar per 100 ml of that stuff), and for your body and mind you are much better off drinking some water with the right minerals, you will not only be rehydrated and refreshed, but you will be happier and healthier in the long run.

#42 Posted by Demoskinos (14574 posts) -

Look, if you're going to drink a sugary not good for you soft drink just fucking to for the gusto man and get the regular all of these "diet" and "zero" drinks are bullshit.

I think it's more inaccurate than offensive. Both Coke and Pepsi are from US states that succeeded from the union (Georgia and North Carolina respectively).

ken levine drinks diet coke, it's good enough for me.

#45 Edited by Unilad (555 posts) -

If you're gonna drink that shit, then go whole hog and have full coke.

Natural always beats chemical shit. None of that shit is technically 'natural' but if you need to feed yourself that stuff, then go natural.

Whilst this could be a load of shit, Mexican coke uses natural sugar cane and not corn syrup, so I guess go with that if you can get it.

Either way, water is pretty good, and seeing as it makes up a huge proportion of your biological composition seems the go to for hydration.


EDIT: When re-reading this I now realise no-one should take my opinion seriously because of the gratuitous use of the word 'shit'. I typed whilst listening to the Chronic, after just finishing DoggyStyle, so shit and bitches was on my mind.

#46 Edited by Butano (1728 posts) -

I prefer Pepsi, but Coke Zero definitely tastes closer to Coke than Diet Coke.

#48 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

I rarely drink either (tend to favour Sprite/7up instead), but I do prefer Diet Coke to the regular stuff. Conversely, I'd take Pepsi Max over the other Pepsi variants. No real logic to any of it.

They taste exactly the fucking same. Jesus, you'd think I was denying the Holocaust or something. I have a different taste palate than you. No big deal.

They definitely do not taste the same. I prefer the taste of zero over diet.
