Member Name: star3683
Advantages: lower in calories, fat and sugar
Disadvantages: can be expensive
I am not exactly a cola connoisseur and I do not drink it very often but my husband loves it so we generally have a bottle of some sorts in the fridge. My husband does prefer the original full fat cola but I try and limit his sugar intake and buy him the diet when I can. Every now and again when I fancy a glass of fizzy pop rather than cordial and there is just the coke in the fridge then I will have a glass, it would never be my first choice of drink but it's not that I do not like it it's just not my favourite.
Coca Cola is the most famous brand of cola around we all know of its main rival and of the numerous other versions out there but my husband and many people I know will argue that non taste the same as coca cola. The diet coca cola is a 'sparkling low calorie soft drink with vegetable extracts and sweeteners'. The nutritional information for one 250ml serving is:
Calories - 1.0,
The bottle I purchased last was a 1.25 litre bottle from my local Iceland store which was on special offer for £1.00. You can also purchase diet coke in cans, individual sized bottles and all different sized larger bottles. I do find that coca cola is one of the most expensive soft drinks to buy so tend to keep an eye out for offers on this product as it can significantly reduce costs.
It states on the bottle that the cola is best served ice cold which I totally agree with as to me warm cola is just horrid. I do find the taste of cola quite unique it is very sweet and to me has a sort of mild liquorish/treacle taste. I much prefer the taste of diet coke compared to the original version it is just not as sickly and sweet. The diet coke is nice to drink on its own, I do not find it to be the most refreshing thirst quenching drink but it is good if you are feeling a bit tired as it contains caffeine which will give you an alertness boost. It is also an excellent mixer for alcoholic drinks including vodka, Bacardi, Jack Daniels etc, etc, etc!
Summary: diet version of original coke
