The Five Nastiest Diet Sodasgreenspun.com : LUSENET : 15shillings : One Thread
So do you guys agree with me, or have I left something out? Do you think I have something against Pepsi? And what the hell is the point of Caffeine Free Diet Mountain Dew?

Maybe I'll send you a six-pack. :)

Okay, I haven't exactly tried it, but it sounds disgusting.

A couple things. First, up here in Canada, Mountain Dew is completely caffeine-free. Even the regular kind. And it still tastes incredible. So you can imagine my pleasant surprise at getting completely wired on the shit in New Jersey. ^^; Second, I have no respect for the cola tastes of anyone who likes Diet Coke over Diet Pepsi. Normal Coke over normal Pepsi I can see, but Diet Coke?! Diet Coke has no flavor and no hint of sweetness, much like Diet Sprite. Diet Pepsi I find tastes more like a hollow version of Pepsi, but it's still sweet. Third, why am I the only cola revolutionary in the world? Crystal Pepsi was good, Orbitz was incredible, and I still have fond memories of New Coke at the age of 3... oh well. I need to try me some of that Mountain Dew: Code Red when it comes out up here...
