Scruffypup saidMy taste buds must not be wired for diet soda. When someone gives me one by mistake, I have to spit it out because I can't even stand to shallow the smallest amount without gagging.
forget diet coke and coke zero, they taste like shit, it's like somebody put cleaning fluid in a can.
i'm not a soda junkie but when i crave a coke, i want real coke, mexican
coke, made with sugar
. it's the true clean pure flavour without the nasty after burn of chemical sweeteners.
that said, there are far better beverages to ingest, pellegrino is available pretty much anywhere there's food so that's my default carbonated zero calorie choice. I don't drink LA tap water, ours ranks like 83rd nationally, but i think NYC has really good tap water.
