Look at all the demos and sales data. Diet Drinks rule out there as far as growth. Americans are finally starting to get it(Except Mr. Zabe tongue.gif ) about sugar in their drinks!

Just messing around Zabe! No harm meant.

The regular drinkers need to increase their consumption then! Regular CSD's have been on a major decline due to people switching to diets, non carbonated beverages, energy drinks, etc. Diets have been the only CSD's with growth of any kind...which is why these new flavors are coming out in non sugar variations.

I think that's the main driver behind innovation like this - people ARE switching from reg's to diets, and the BIG 3 may be thinking consumers may be more likely to try a diet that's flavored... like this Rasp Coke (or Diet Coke), Caramel Creme Diet Pepsi Jazz, etc. etc.

No AMERICANS don't get it! End the Sugar tarrifs! Real sugar is the best of the sweetners to put in your body. If we had no tarrifs we would have better product and healthier soft drinks. Hell, kill the Cuban Embargo, Cuba is no threat to the US and the embargo only hurts Americans.

Rumor has it that is will come out diet, but will have the possibility to come out in a regular.

CAN ANY ONE CONFIRM OR DISMISS what has been discussed in this post?

Well the embargo on sugar cane from cuba and south america tariffs... would hurt americans if it was lifted since a large supply of corn growers would now need even larger subsidized funds to keep growing it... or our supply of corn would shrink to the point of raising prices on all related products with corn and farms since some is used for feed for cattle... also throwing more american dollars into another country creating a larger trade deficit since they'll export far more than import.. making american dollar weaker... costing us more on goods and services nationwide making it harder to keep business in america... propelling more companies over-sea to meet walmarts demands of lower prices to american consumers helping to increase the trade deficit for more products made over-sea... and this could go on for hours... lol smile.gif

Well said. Corn (corn byproducts) are a big part of the American food chain and economy.
