Coca Cola Zero is a Coca Cola product, that is claimed to have 0 sugar. It has the same characteristics as any Coca Cola beverage, only that it doesn't have sugar. This makes it highly marketable, because , nowadays, people pay much more attention on what they eat or drink.
I don't recall when I had my first Coca Cola, but I DO recall when I drank the first Cola Light. It was good overall, but I just couldn't get over that taste.It has something specific,I can't describe its taste. At first,I though it was me,but as I bought more and more bottles,I knew that that's the drinks taste. Anyway,this doesn't bother me now.I still sense the different taste,but I can cope with it rather good.
I did a little bit o research on what sweetener did Cola Diet use,because you could still sense the sweetness.It may had no sugar,but what sweetener did it have? Turns out they switched from a sweetener to another. They used sucrose(tablesugar),sucralose,aspartame, and even fructose!I have seen many many drinks that contain fructose.Fructose is a carbohydrate that doesn't need insulin in order to be metabolized.This means that,although it won't make you fat by using other carbs, there is no limit(aside from plain diffusion) on what could your fructose limit would be. This in turn can make you fat.
I also found out that some Diet Cokes still contain traces of saccharin,and this explains the metallic taste,But,fortunately,saccharin has almost no caloric energy,so this is OK.
Also,what I found out by accident using Coke Diet, is that it react very very bad with Mentos.I had some in my mouth and when I tried to drink(I didn't know about the ongoing sensation with this combination) I became a human fountain!After seeing this I decided to test other Coke and Pepsi products,to see if the result is confirmed by some,or even any of it.he result?No.Just Diet Coke reacted that violently.
Summary: I think it's a good drink,but not my best.
