I mostly buy this Cherry coke for my parties and BBQ's because a lot of my guests like this coke and it goes down very well on a hot summer's day. I recently bought it for a party I had over the Christmas holidays. Some of my guests try to keep their weight under control and so this one being a diet variety it suits them well.
The coke comes inside a transparent plastic bottle, it can be bought in large and small bottles and also cans. I usually buy the large bottles. The coke is the usual colour of coke but with a slight red colour added. Once the top is removed it has quite a strong smell of the cherries. The smell is really pleasant and quite a fruity smell too. If you like the smell of cherries, you will most definitely love the smell of this drink.
It is quite fizzy once poured into a glass and this drink holds the fizz quite well compared to some other brands. This one isn't overly fizzy that it is unpleasant to drink. It does tend to bloat the stomach a little though as we all know fizzy drinks tend to have this effect.
When you first sip the drink, the cherry flavour is really apparent with a taste of cola, the blend of 2 mix really well to give a really nice taste. The drink doesn't have a bland taste at all and the cherry hits the palette as soon as you begin to drink it.
I always keep my drinks in my fridge to chill it before drinking it, I find chilled drinks do taste much nicer and more refreshing, especially on a hot summers day. This one really is an excellent refreshing drink chilled.
It is completely sugar free and doesn't contain any fats etc, so ideal if you are on a diet and want a fizzy drink. It only contains 1 calorie per 100ml so absolutely fabulous for anyone on a diet plan or anyone watching their weight etc. 1 calorie from your daily allowance is nothing in my opinion. It tends to help you feel much fuller after a glass and is ideal for anyone struggling with their diet and want to feel fuller for a while longer. It does contain sweeteners and vegetable extracts, so it is a drink which is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It is also gluten, nut and dairy free, so if you suffer from any of these allergies this one would be more than suitable to drink at a party or at home etc.
For a 2 litre bottle it usually costs just short of £2 but can often be bought on special offer, so it is wise to buy it and stock up when spotted on an offer price. It is extremely good value for money and a really good quality soft drink. If you want a can to drink on the go etc, a pack of 8 will set you back around £3.50 depending where you buy it and if it is on offer or not. Not sure how much the small bottles cost but I would probably think just short of a £1 or so.
What I sometimes do for my parties is I pour the drink into a couple of those ice cube trays and freeze them, the cube added to water, cola or any soft drink just gives the drink an extra taste and a little more zesty taste. Dropped into a glass of cold water the cubes just give it a taste of flavoured water and as the cube melt if the drink is left for a while just tastes of cherry/cola water. My grandchildren don't drink many fizzy drinks but they do drink a lot of flavoured water and the cubes inside the glass for a water drink helps give it a nice taste. They really like the taste of the cherry and the cola added to the water.
I cannot fault the taste of this drink, the fruity flavour is a winner for my friends, family and myself to drink at my parties and entertaining days. It is a change from just a cola drink and if you do love cola and cherries but have never purchased this drink, I highly do recommend you give it a try because I don't think you would be disappointed at all with the flavour.
I will continue to buy this drink, I love the taste and I hope it is never discontinued.
The bottle can be recycled after use too.
I give this drink 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
As the name suggests, diet cherry coke is a cherry flavoured version of Coca-Cola. The original cherry coke was introduced in 1985, followed by the diet version in 1986. At that time it was the third flavour released by the Coca-Cola company, the first two being regular coke and diet coke.
It's funny, I don't really follow any diets but I much prefer to drink a diet soft drink to a regular one. I think I like the taste of a lack of sugar which is why I prefer diet cherry coke. Coca-cola call this a low calorie drink with vegetable extracts and sweeteners. It is a fizzy drink so has lots of bubbles in it and is brown in colour.
I like to drink diet cherry coke from a can, I don't know about you but I think it tastes much better from an ice cold can that has been in the fridge or freezer rather than out of a plastic bottle or in a cup. You can get diet cherry coke in regular 330ml size cans but you do need to look carefully at the can to make sure you have the cherry version. The cans are silver, just like normal diet coke cans and the only thing that is really different about them is that there's a little cherry by the logo telling you it's cherry coke and apart from that you wouldn't know.
I wouldn't really say that this drink tastes like cherries completely. It's quite a strong drink and has a thick sweetish taste to it. Whereas I can always finish a can of diet coke I usually have to leave a little bit of a diet cherry coke can as its quite heavy. It also makes me burp alot more than a regular coke does, maybe it's just me but I really find its true!
Each 330ml can has only 1 calorie in it so if you're following a low calorie diet then this is a different option and nice flavoured drink to consider.
I was out shopping last week and really thirsty so I bought a small bottle of diet Cherry Coke, I had never tried this flavour coke before so thought it was about time I did.
I bought a small 500ml bottle from a local shop and paid £1.25 for it, This would probably be less in a supermarket. The cherry coke is sold in the traditional style curvey coca cola bottle which is made from recyclable plastic, it has a dark red screw top lid with Coke Zone written on it and the website www.coca-cola.co.uk. The bottle has a small silver plastic label wrapped around it which has the Diet Coke logo on the front in black and red and it also informs the customer that the drink is sugar free, the rest of the label gives all the usual information you would expect to find such as ingredients, nutritional information and the GDA's which are given for a 250ml serving.
A single serving of diet cherry coke which is half the bottle will cost you just 2.5 calories, great if are dieting or just cutting down on sugar, personally I buy diet or sugar free drinks because I'm diabetic and something like this is ideal for me. The cherry coke is the same colour as regular coca cola, a dark brown/black, theres no hint of cherry colour at all.
When I opened the bottle it had a nice fizz to it, I gave it a quick sniff and the liquid smelt sweet and strongly of cherries, it smelt lovely. I had a drink and at first the cherry coke delivers a nice strong burst of cherry flavour, it tastes like real fruit, there's nothing artificial about it, the cherry flavour is lovely however this doesn't last. After the initial cherry burst its gone almost instantly leaving behind a very flat tasting coke. I was disappointed, there's absolutely no after taste at all neither pleasant nor unpleasant, its very watery.
Despite the flat taste of the drink the coke actually stays quite fizzy in the bottle, its just when you drink it it seems to taste flat.
All in all I was disappointed with the Diet Cherry Coke, it was a let down on both the cherry taste and the coke taste, the only good thing to say about it was that its low in calories. I certainly wont be buying this again and nor do I recommend it.
I like to drink lots of different brands of drinks. I am not on a diet or trying to lose weight but sometimes I do buy the lower calorie ones, just because they contain less calories and less sugar. I have lots of grandchildren who are always wanting a drink too when they stay over at my home or come for a visit. So having drinks stocked is important.
I bought 2 bottles, each being 2 litre bottles which the drink comes housed in a clear plastic bottle. The drink is a dark red colour. This drink has only a slight smell of cherry and more of a normal coke smell. I like to drink it cold from the fridge. I prefer my drinks cold. I have tried it without drinking from the fridge but it doesn't have such a nice taste as when drank cold. Somehow the flavour doesn't taste so good for my liking unless chilled.
It has only a slight taste of the cherry and more of the coke is present in this drink. I'd much prefer more of the cherry flavour but it is more of a 30 per cent of the cherry and 70 per cent of the coke is best I can describe the amounts. It is a kind of a little fruity, I do like the blend of the 2 flavours together and I think they work well. The taste is pleasant and quite a nice taste. It is quite a fizzy drink and can bloat the stomach more than some other brands. My older grandchildren drink this one but not the younger ones because I just think it is far too fizzy for them to drink and not a good idea. But the older ones love it.
For a 100ml glass it contains just 1 calorie, not bad if you are on a diet or cutting down on your calories intake.
The 2 litre bottle cost just under £2 and I bought 2 for £3.50 from Asda on special offer. A little saving on the price. It is a good quality drink and good value for money. I bought 2 bottles because of the bank holiday weekend and for a BBQ. So the offer price saved a few pence.
I just wished there was more of a cherry flavour to this drink, I love cherries and cherry flavoured drinks and more added would be nicer for this coke. A little more of the cherry would give for a better drink. But it is still a nice drink and quite refreshing on a hot day in the garden. I arrived with a bottle and a few other alcoholic drinks to a BBQ at one of my children's homes at the weekend. I spotted some of the family drinking it and their friends, I didn't hear anyone say they didn't like it.
It says on the label it is suitable for vegetarians.
The bottle can be recycled too.
I do recommend it if you like cherries but if you like a lot more cherry flavoured drinks, this one may not be so suitable because it doesn't have a lot of cherry flavour and you may be a little disappointed with the taste of the drink. A nice drink without the high calories.
Because it doesn't have such a strong taste of cherry I am dropping a star.
I rate this 4 stars.
I bought myself a couple of bottles of Diet Cherry Coke the other night from the petrol station. It wasn't until last night that I drink the first bottle and I have to say I'm not overly impressed by this stuff.
I paid £2 for two bottle (as it saved me a bit of money) and as I have drunk the 'normal' cherry Coke before (i.e. not the 'diet' variety), I'd stupidly thought this diet version would be just as nice - it isn't!
It's the same price, the same colour, same shaped bottle, basically it looks almost the same except it says 'diet' on the front, but the taste does NOT compare to the full sugar version.
It also tasted somewhat 'flat' and this was despite the top being very firmly and tightly closed on the plastic bottle. The taste was sweet and artificial and definitely lacking in the cherry department. It was basically a real disappointment. I also found that it didn't exactly quench my thirst, either. I think it was pretty much too overloaded with the artificial tang of sweet saccharine and I swear I could taste this as soon as the fizzy pop hit my mouth.
I also disliked the strange and weird after taste it left behind in my mouth. Not nice. I haven't even bothered to open the other bottle. I gave it to the little lad, who knocked it back without a word. He just smacked his slips and burped loudly, as all kids do when they drink a fizzy drink. I don't think his taste buds are as sophisticated as mine are, either.
Overall, I am definitely NOT impressed with this fizzy drink. I wouldn't buy it again. The only thing positive I can say about it is that it was cheap and on offer, but still at this price I wouldn't buy it again.
I have always been a big fan of Cherry Coke but more so when it was how it used to be rather than the more recent Coke with Cherry which actually has a slightly different taste so it's a shame that Cherry Coke isn't around anymore.
The labels on the bottles match the design of the can which is all silver with the familiar diet coke logo and then a cherry coloured swirl across the bottom with the cherries too the side of it. Also on the bottles the lid is matched in colour to the cherry coloured swirl which you find on the design.
I drink too many carbonated drinks so I try as much as I can to get the diet or zero versions as it's a little bit better than the full of sugar ones. The only problem I have with this is a lot of the drinks available lose the majority of there flavour once they've been made into the diet drink. Unfortunately this drink is no exception but in a rather strange way I notice that you don't get the obvious taste of coke you automatically get from the regular version then the hint of cherry. With this diet version when you first take a drink you taste very little on first contact but once it's settled in your mouth you can real taste the presence of the cherry flavour in the drink. I do find that this drink is very gassy though and I have to sip it quite sparingly otherwise it can be a bit too much. But like I mentioned in the headline I have to have mine ice cold as soon as it starts to get even to room temperature I find it begins to taste very bitter and I am unable to drink it which is obviously an inconvenience for grabbing a quick drink if it needs to be refrigerated first.
As with most drinks you get it in 330ml can, 500ml bottle, 1.25 litre bottle and 2 litre bottle. It has 3 calories, 0g fat and 0g saturates per 330ml so obviously that's an improvement on picking up a can of the regular cherry coke but obviously it still is by no means healthy.
As for price you can nearly always find these drinks on offer and at the moment Tesco have them on 3 for the price of 2 which works out as about £3.96 for 6 litres which isn't too bad a price but coke is definitely the most expensive of the branded drinks available even more so than the others which are actually owned by the coca cola company.
I tend to love drinks made by Coke, however, Diet Cherry Coke, is a drink that I just cant drink. I would even go as far as saying that I hate it. Have you ever shaken a bottle of coke, let it rest and then taken a sip. It would taste flat, no taste at all really. Well that is exactly how this drink tastes, and you dont even have to shake, it is made like that, very disappointing. Its strange though, as I love the normal Cherry Coke. The diet version however is so much different. If you have read my review of normal Coke Cola, you will have read me recommendation not to buy a supermarkets owned branded coke due to the low tasting quality, well I would put this drink in the same league. I put to terrible taste down to the removal of sugar from it, taking all the sweetness away.
I drank it once, and I havent again. I thought it would be healthier, and to be truthful it probably is, but I would rather increase my calorie intake a bit and buy normal cherry coke. Waste of money. When it comes to the cost of diet cherry coke, it is the same as the other Coke Cola varieties, relative to the size of bottle.
This drink really isnt for me. I wouldnt recommend it based on my experience, unless you like tasteless flat drinks. Thanks for reading.
I dislike this drink. Why? Read on!
It doesn't really taste of anything. It's a far cry from the regular cherry coke.
The drink tastes just like the Tesco Value Coke that I reviewed a while ago. This means that the drink itself is weak and dull. It just tastes like fizz to me, you can't even taste any aspect of cherry in the drink. It's stripped of any sugar, which is a bonus if you're watching your waistline, however this doesn't make up for the dull horrible taste. The drink goes flat quickly too. If I store it in the fridge for half an hour or so and come back to it it's already lost it's fizz. It also leaves me feeling bloated and uncomfortable after it's been consumed. I can't consume this drink with food as the two don't really go together... Plus it leaves me feeling sick sometimes.
The drink can be drunk as part of a healthy diet as it has fewer calories than regular coke and it's better for your teeth as it contains far less sugar compared to the regular variety.
It's good value and it's better for children due to the low sugar content, so it does have it's good points. Unfortunately it doesn't do anything for me. It needs more "zing" to it.
A weak drink that's dull and lifeless. A drink of water is more interesting!
I tried this drink at the weekend as I had a hangover and on the way back from picking up a chippy tea on Sunday we stopped to get something cold and fizzy to go with it. My fiance actually recommended this to me, on the basis that you can really taste the cherry compared to the full fat version. I gave it a try but was sorely disappointed, and didn't even finish the can.
I bought this in the form of a can, which cost 49p from our local newsagent. It also comes in bottles (small and large) which will cost around £1 for a 500ml bottle, and nearer £2 for a 2 litre bottle. It is available in supermarkets, newsagents and discount stores, but to be honest, I just wouldn't bother.
Diet cherry coke is basically cherry coke stripped of any flavour apart from the cherry, and it has a very strange almost metal taste to it. I found it was fizzy which was what I was after, but the taste was so strange I'm having trouble even describing it! You can definitely taste the fruity cherries, this isn't the problem. The problem I think is the fact it's diet coke means it doesn't contain anything substantial enough to give the drink any actual taste. So this means you're drinking something fizzy and carbonated which vaguely tastes of cherries but tastes like it's been watered down to the point I'd rather go thirsty than drink this.
The drink also leaves a really bitter and horrible aftertaste in your mouth after drinking it. Actually, it leaves an awful taste in your mouth as soon as you start drinking it. It tastes really sweet, even though it doesn't actually contain any sugar, so you feel like you're coating your teeth in rubbish. Looking at the ingredients though, even though the nutritional information makes good reading, there are some very strange sounding ingredients in this drink which probably account for the awful taste.
The nutritional information is the best thing about this drink, although in all honesty I'd rather drink water which has no calories in it than put myself through drinking this! The can I had contained around 3 calories, no sugar, no fat, and a trace of salt. As for the strange sounding ingredients, the phosphoric acid and potassium benzoate probably explain why this drink tastes artificial and sugary despite the lack of sugar.
I usually don't mind diet coke but this version with cherry in is just awful, and that's not even down to the cherry taste. Looking through other reviews on this drink, I see there is a lot of divided opinion and you either love it or hate it. There is definitely divided opinion in our household, I hate it and my partner loves it. In fairness, he did offer to swap his drink with mine when he saw how little I was enjoying it, but I tried to persevere for Dooyoo research purposes. The things I do for this site.......
I'm a big fan of Diet Coke, I realise it isn't necessarily the healthiest thing I could be drinking but it helps to curb my sweet tooth without me resorting to sugar filled treats that are even more unhealthy!
In the last few years Coca Cola have started introducing different varieties of Diet Coke, basically the same thing but with a hint of a different flavour as a twist on the old classic. Off the top of my head I can think of lemon, lime, vanilla and cherry. Cherry Coke, the full fat high sugar version has been around for years of course, so its nice that us lovers of diet soft drinks can finally join in and enjoy it! Cherry is definitely my favourite of the new 'flavoured' versions.
Of course, its very similar to ordinary Diet Coke, but the cherry flavour is strong enough that you can definitely tell the difference without it being too overpowering. It reminds me a little bit of Diet Dr Pepper but it doesn't have as much of the 'medicine' taste to it, its more fruity, although doesn't bear much resemblance to actual fresh cherries if I'm honest!
Diet Coke Cherry makes a nice change for an avid Diet Coke fan like myself, a bit of variety every now and then! It comes in 2ltr, 1.5ltr and 500ml plastic bottles and 330ml cans so you can try a can to check you like it before plumping for the larger bottle! Like the normal version it has no calories and no sugar but does contain artificial sweeteners and caffeine, and your dentist probably wouldn't recommend it.
I love Cherry coke but feel really guilty about drinking it because of the amount of sugar and I can actually hear my poor teeth recoil in horror when I open the bottle, so I thought I better give Diet coke cherry a whirl. It was a bit of a disappointment at first because I expected it to taste the same, and to be honest it does not taste that much like the Cherry coke version but it is quite a nice version on its own.
Diet Coke itself is not my drink of choice, I do prefer Coke Zero and I do know that there is a Coke Zero Cherry version but I think that it is only available in America, however I found that Diet Coke Cherry was actually pretty nice, it made Diet coke interesting to me and gave it a whole different dimension.
The thing I find strangest is that Cherry coke is actually cheaper than Diet coke Cherry, being available in a wide range of shops is probably the reason for that.
For all those who love Cherry coke, try diet coke cherry, but be warned that it does not taste exactly the same, but Diet Coke does not taste the same as Coca Cola so everyone should be prepared for that anyway. This drink is for those of us who love to have a cherry taste in their drink, it is a nice subtle taste and not too over powering which is good for me because ironically I actually hate cherries but love Cherry Coke... The cherry flavour just adds a hint of sweeties and brings it to a whole new level.
Go ahead and try it and make your mind up for yourself, but remember Diet Coke does not taste like Coca cola so don't expect Diet Coke Cherry to taste the same as Cherry coke
Fancy a cuppa? Nope.
Meet for a coffee? No thanks!
... But make mine a Diet Coke with Cherry and I'm there with bells on!
Diet Coke with Cherry is my thing. In fact it's so my thing it's all I drink-and I'm not exaggerating. I drink tonnes of the stuff every day, far more than I should but I can't help it-I'm hooked! I don't drink tea or coffee and being a stay at home Mum I need a drink in my hand at all times-especially one with caffine in it so this was a fabulous coffee substitue!
Diet Cherry Coke or Diet Coke with Cherry as it was re-branded a few years back is 'sugar free' according to the packaging, but lets face it you don't need to look far on the small print to find the naughtiness. Included in it's ingrediants are various things I don't like the look of and although non can be called 'sugars' exactly, what there is listed makes up for this! The ingrediants are as follows: Carbonated water, Flavourings (including caffine) colour (caramel E150d), Citric Acid, Sweetners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Phosphoric Acid, Acidity Regulator (E331), Tartaric Acid.
Aspartame is the hidden biggy here-it's the thing that makes it addictive and is also a sweetner so I dread to think what it's doing to my teeth! Citric Acid, various E numbers, flavourings etc...zero 'sugar' but plenty of naughtiness none-the-less!
Diet Coke with Cherry can be purchased by the can (single or multipack), small on the go bottle, and larger 2 litre bottle. Cost wise against how much you get the best value for money is the 2 litre bottles, but only when it's on offer in the supermarket. Which it usually is, for approximately 2 bottles for £3 depending on the offer. Each 2 litre bottle serves 8x 250ml glasses and it's recommended to be served chilled.
Each 250ml serving contains the following:
2.5 kcal (less than 1% guideline daily amount)
0.0g sugars (0% guideline daily amount)
0.0g fat (0% guideline daily amount)
0.0g saturates (0% guideline daily amount)
0.06g salt (1% guideline daily amount)
Taste-wise I find Diet Coke with Cherry smoother and easier to drink than normal Diet Coke and much easier and lighter tasting than Coke Cola. I don't know what makes it smooth to drink but the bubbles seem less harsh in the cherry variety and therefore t doesn't have that initial sting that comes with most fizzy drinks. Differently to other fizzy drinks Diet Coke with Cherry is not good with Ice. Because it taste lighter, the addition of Ice makes the taste too watered down. Chilled temperature is just perfect!
I give Diet Coke with Cherry a whooping 5 stars, the taste is perfect, the price is good value for money when on offer, the packaging is clear and to the point and it's ability to wake me up in the morning is invaluable-to me anyway!

If diet coke is your thing then this is the drink for when you want a little added extra taste or something different from the norm. If you are a cherry lover then this drink is also great to try! No horrid after taste either!
* * * *
Diet cherry coke can be found on special offer on the odd occassion (not as often as coke and diet coke) and can also be found with some meal deals. It can be a little expensive to buy so it's best to get when on special offer.

Cherry diet coke tends not to be found in resturants and corner shops but definately in the larger super markets so if you feel you must have the hint of cherry then it's best to get it from the super stores.
Cherry Coke has been out for years and years. I always used to stick to just the Original Diet Coke. I liked the taste and wasn't interested in any of the other Fruity flavours. However over the last few years there has been lots of additions to the Coca Cola brand, and lots of flavours such as Lemon and Lime which are also good too. Cherry isn't my favourite flavour in the world and I would never sit down and eat Cherries, so I just gave it a wide berth, but this changed about 4 years ago.
Diet Coke is probably my most favourite soft drink brands and often there is some good offers on the multipack tins. I like to stock up on offers as I take them to my work to save money on buying the tins at the shop. This 1 time the 6 can packs were buy 1 get 1 free, but I think the whole town had decided to stock up and it was the flavoured ones that was left. I got a pack of the Lime one, as I really like that one (this has since been replaced by I think it is Citrus unfortunately, but it is Lemon and Lime together which is still a nice flavour.) And I picked up a pack of the Diet Cherry one thinking that I wanted to try something different and if I didn't like it then since the pack worked out half price then I wasn't losing too much money.
You get this flavour in quite a few different ways. There is the 330ml tins which are also available individually but can be quite hard to find in your average shop. Mostly they are in the 6 can multipack. The other more popular way is the 2 litre bottle. Expect to pay around £2.70 for the 6 can pack and around £1.80 for the 2 litre bottle. This will no doubt depend on where you live price wise. There is also the 500ml bottle which is available quite a few places where I live with the main Supermarkets stocking it. Expect to pay around 95p for this size thesedays.
The bottles and cans are just the usual design. No point in going into much detail about it, as you will probably know yourself.
So the important part about this, how does this taste? It is really nice and a whole lot nicer than what I was expecting this to taste like. You get the usual Diet Coke taste which is nice and a bit sweet, but you can really taste the Cherry part. This tastes nice enough and fresh without tasting fake and full of artificial flavouring although no doubt it is. It is quite a strong Cherry taste, but I have to say all in all it is really nice and a nice twist on an old favourite.
Per 100ml this has less than 1 calorie so can be enjoyed as aprt of a calorie controlled Diet.
A really nice Juice and if you have been put off with this and haven't tried it then I recommend a try.
I seem to becoming more and more addicted to drinking fizzy pop these days which is not a good thing I was not given it as a child and have only recently began to enjoy the sensation of the fiz in my mouth. One of my favourite flavours of pop is cherry and Tesco currently have a offer of buy 2 coca cola products get 2 free so this week I though I would give the cherry coke and the diet cherry coke ago.
Now comparing Regular Cherry Coke to Diet Coke with Cherry you can see that Diet Coke with Cherry is better for you per 250ml of regular there are 113 calories compared to a tiny 2.5 in the diet version there is also 28g of sugar compared to 0g in the diet version. However this sadly is reflected on the taste.
On taking the lid off the diet version you can notice straight away that there is no cherry fragarance released as there is with the regular version. Pouring it into the glass it seems to fizz the same but drinking it is a disapointment. The coke seems to taste like a normal cherry coke has gone flat and lost almost all of its flavour. I was really disapointe with this as usually I don't find diet versions of pops to be that much of a let down and in some cases I actually prefer the diet version.
I will not be buying the version of cherry coke again I would rather have the extra calories and sugar and enjoy my drink.
I can only give 2 stars as technically it is better for me its just I don't like it.
Diet Cherry Coke was introduced in 1986, and renamed "Diet Coke Cherry" in 2005.
