Random: The History of Diet Coke

January 25, 2008 at 10:34 am 5 comments

“Back in the 1980’s right before Coca Cola was set to change its formula to the failed “New Coke” it released Diet Coke. Here is the thing, Diet Coke was based on the New Coke formula only with artificial sweetener instead of sugar. That is correct, Diet Coke is the infamous “New Coke” formula still to this day. Coke Zero is the first time that the original Coca-Cola formula has been used in a diet soft drink, so in other words Coke Zero is original Coca-Cola Classic only with artificial sweetener and Diet Coke is the “New Coke” formula with artificial sweetener and because so many people would freak out if the taste of Diet Coke changed the product was called Coke Zero. ”


I am a Diet Coke addict. That’s why I found that so interesting when reading one of my favorite blogs. You just learn the most interesting random facts while poking around the internet. Happy Friday!
