This is why you're here, Ben.

I think you totally need to have Rorie on for anything related to the vending machines though.

@jeff sparkling water is a pretty good substitute for soda. It's still got the fizz and the flavors are alright.

With all due respect, I don't watch any video content with that Coke Zero guy. I just don't like his opinions on sucrose and he's got bad flavor. Just trying to be helpful but you should fire him and hire Fanta.

If Jeff likes diet coke over the original Coke Zero I am not sure how to feel about this review.

It still blows my mind the obsession with "soda" fizzy drinks Americans have.

On a related note, my design boss was lauding the redesign of coke zero as genius - the rest of my team would have none of it. It's a basic redesign cmon.

Yeah, couch dude is super correct. It tastes pretty much exactly the same, it's all in the noodle. Maybe a little more citrus-y?

This is a bit disappointing. Coke Zero showed a lot of promise in Early Access, but I was hoping they would fix more of its problems before release. Too bad, I guess.

Fizzy water may not taste as good nor is it quite as carbonated but it gets the job done. Plus it's water, so you're hydrating.

Arrowhead makes good and cheap fizzy water with various flavors. That's what I get.

I actually noticed the taste first and went "wait is this the new Coke Zero?" and I honestly didn't like it as much. Tastes much more like sugar. Granted, not the US version.

When Zero first came out I actually didn't like it. Preferred regular Coke. But later on I got into it again and I am not sure if they made any initial changes but I liked it a lot (also, less calories) and has been drinking Coke Zero instead of Coke since. And when I tried this one and I agree with Ben, it does taste a lot more like regular Coke than Zero did before. So in some way I feel like I get the best of both worlds now. Less calories and the best Coke taste. I find regular Coke to be a bit too sweet now, but a really cold regular Coke after some hard work does still beat Zero though. But that is such a specific scenario.

Yeah, I have spent way too much time thinking about this.

I actually like No Sugar Coke, tastes much better than Coke Zero.
