I am a creature of habit, and for years on end, I have stuck loyally by the Diet Coke, finding this the best Coke drink out there, actually not enjoying the original Coca Cola one bit, if that is something I`m allowed to say... I still wanted to try out this caffeine free version of the legendary drink, so out of curiosity, I bought myself a bottle and started gulping it down...
Well, the taste is very similar to a combination of original Coca Cola and Diet Coke, the taste is still there, it`s still refreshing and good! But then I started thinking, do I really need to be drinking my Coke caffeine free? Isn`t it better to drink the Diet Coke, avoiding much of the sugar and calories? If you want to enjoy Coca Cola without the caffeine, then this version is a really great option, but for me, I won`t be buying it again, as it`s still loaded with sugar and other added stuff that I don`t really trust...
The Caffeine Free Coca Cola is not a bad drink, but I do prefer the Diet Coke any day! The bottle with caffeine free coke can be bought for 1.00 at stores such as Sainsbury`s, and if you want to cut down on your caffeine intake, this soda might be the way to go...
I must admit, I get very confused with the seemingly endless different brands of Coca Cola there are these days. I picked this one up by mistake, thinking it was something else, aiming for the Caffeine Free Diet Coke my mum used to ply me with when I was younger to prevent a hyperactive episode draining all of her well reserved energy. By the time I realised, it was too late of course, so I shrugged and drank it anyway.
The taste of Caffeine Free Coca-Cola is actually quite nice. I used to like the Diet version when I was younger, but that is now particularly horrible to me nowadays. I don't know whether it is because I have a sweet tooth, but the fact that I like this one seems to perhaps suffort that reasoning.
Caffeine is a stimulant which is put in drinks in order to give you a bit of get up and go. However, with people reacting differently to the chemical, some like the taste of Coca-Cola but without having to go throught the effects of the caffeine (see previous note about me when I was younger). In this respect, creating a range without the caffeine in is a good idea, and as long as the taste remains similar, then they seem to be onto a winner.
The taste does stay very similar to that of regular Coca-Cola, but there is naturally a difference, which I find slightly disconcerting but not surprising. The drink still contains sugar and other chemicals and ingredients which give the drink trhe same label as the regular drink in terms of what's bad for you in it, as in the sugar and the calories, but ultimately, it's cornered a market of Coke fans who want to do away with the caffeine.
Caffeine Free Coca-Cola may have been a mistake for me when I bought it, but I could have made a worse mistake, and now I won't be bothering with the Diet version again, having tasted this. Who am I kidding anyway? As long as I don't drink copious amounts of the stuff, diet or no diet, it shouldn't make much of a difference. Better to go with the taste rather than try to make a point to myself (or at least, that's my defence anyway!)
Caffeine Free Coca-Cola is available in many outlets, but not as common regualar Coca-Cola as you would expect. Expect to pay anywhere between 60p and £1 for a 330ml bottle.
i was feeling really tired so i thought id go and get myself a can of coke i walked into my local spar and i saw diet coke normal coke cherry coke and sadly caffiene free coke which looked horrible the can was a dirty gold it made me feel ill so i bought a normal coke with its rich red colour.
later on i decided to go out again and try some caffeine free coke i opened the can and it all looked normal but the taste was missing i tryed to drink the rest of the can but i couldnt stand it i threw it in the bin and i havent touched anything caffeine free since
Diet coke is an aquired taste. After a while you prefer it to normal coca cola. Diet coke has no sugar, so to be extra healthy try caffeine free. Not only does it not contain sugar, it contains no caffeine. This means that you can drink it whenever you want and it will not affect your sleep. This can only be a good thing.
The downside to this is that, as it is essentially diet coke still, the sweeteners are still present = more chemicals. But, your teeth won't rot.
Personally I'd rather keep my teeth and my sleep, so I like to drink caffeine free diet coke. I've seen it in shops in 2 litre bottles and 330ml cans.
This isn't really my section, and I've never wrote a op like this before, so give me mercy.
As a Diet Coke drinker I was interested after coming across this drink, Diet Coke Caffeine Free, on a supermarket shelf. I already had Diet Coke as it is pratically Coke, without the calories.
~A message to anti Diet-drink people~
Why not have diet drink's? They're healthier than non-Diet drinks and carry the same taste, normally.
Some examples of tasty diet drinks are:
*Red Bull Sugarfree
*Diet Dr Pepper
*Scweppes(excuse spelling) Diet
*Diet Fanta(or Fanta Lite or something)
Caffeine Free Diet Coke tastes identical to Diet Coke, what tastes identical to Coca-Cola.
We all know that taste: the popping, tickly, and the lovely, undescribable taste, itself.
It's also the same cost as Coke.
I believe you can only get Diet Coke Caffeine Free in pack of 6 or 12, 330ml cans. The can's seem to be rather tough.
Some shops however, ignore the 'NOT FOR SALE - MULTIPACK CAN' label and sell the drink indivually.
///~Sorry i can't get a copy of the nutritional info, leave a comment if you can point me to a site listing it~\\\
This is original Coke. High quality. Not one of those cheap Aldi spin-offs.
Still, I do prefer, easily Organic Cola. A very hard to find drink, I've only ever seen once, inside a local vege-restaurent. This drink's nutritional info though ain't that good, lot's of calories and more.
You might as well get this drink, over your Coke or Diet Coke. Once again, it tastes the same and's more healthy. It's also the same cost as Coke.
