Let me know when sugar addiction becomes a great problem than being addicted to "Game of Thrones".

For Coke, hopefully they don't change their normal diet coke. I really like though Cherry Coke Zero.

they are leaving diet coke.
The whole point of coke zero sugar is to get away from the the "diet" branding.  So they have one sofa for dieters and one for people who just prefer no calories.

I hope they're heavy duty sofas.

Damn you aspartame haters.

PepsiCo announced last week that it's replacing the aspartame in Diet Pepsi with sucralose, the sweetener marketed under the brand name Splenda.

Goddamit, does suclarose suuuuuuuck.

I don't drink soda full stop, diet or otherwise.  Much too sweet and syrupy. I prefer water.  But I can imagine how this would suck for people who like the way pepsi tastes.  It's actually a daring move my Pepsi because food products are based on their consistent flavor and to change it after so many years can alienate a lot of their users, especially their heavy users.

Because I am a diabetic, I am in effect on a continuous diet. Things with no sugar that I can tolerate are good. I dislike when diet (whatever you want to call them) go away. There used to be a number of different no sugar oatmeals  that have gone away for example.
