I was in Mississippi over the weekend and picked up a fridge pack of Diet Big Red. It was one of the worse sodas I've ever had. Anyone ever tried it?

i havent, but i wanted to as i heard it was made with splenda..

i heard they were going to make a big national push of diet big red at some point, but at this point, still have never seen it in chicago.

Yep, it's now made with Splenda. Let me know if you don't ever get it. I'll be happy to ship ya a 12 pack.

Splenda or not. You are right, it's horrible.

Should be seeing Diet Big Red in Chicago. ABC is starting to bring it into Pittsburgh.

ABC has brought it out in michigan a couple weeks ago. i still haven't seen complete representation of the diet rite line in 20oz. as everyone is so gungho about the 12pk can of diet rite and all flavor extensions, i think DPSU is having a hard time selling falvor extensions of diet rite in 20oz.

I haven't tried the new Splenda-formulated version, but will be glad to hear it's getting wider distribution. I can't get it here (Oregon) but I used to pick up the older Diet Big Red when I travelled through Texas> I liked the diet version because it's not as syrupy-sweet as the regular Big Red. (of course, I tend to go in cycles, once I start on diet sodas, I can't take sugar sweetened sodas and vice versa)
