Review: Coke Zero

If you're a big Coke fan, you've probably already tried Coke Zero. I, who hold no special allegiance to any soft drink, tried it for the first time this past week. And I loved it.

Two or three times a week I'll enjoy a diet soda (usually Diet Coke or Diet 7-UP). Then on the weekend (which I figure starts at noon on Friday), I have one or two regular, sugar filled drinks (usually Coke, Mountain Dew or Dr. Pepper). Using this formula I keep my soft drink consumption and calorie intake lower than I have in the past.

What I've found with Coke Zero though is it tastes so close to a regular Coke, I double my "diet" pop consumption and have reduced my regular soda intake. While I can't say the tastes are exact, Coke has a winner with Coke Zero.
