Diet Cherry Coke
Advantages: Less calories and sugar then regular cherry coke
Disadvantages: You can taste the difference and its not good
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.
Summary: Won't buy again
