I know that diet sodas do not "last" as long as regular sodas due to the artificial sweeteners. How much longer do you think diet sodas will be okay to drink past the freshness date if they are in glass bottles (specifically Diet Coke)?

Well, firstly it would depend on the storage environment. You'd want a cool place without direct sunlight. Keeping it out of all light would probably be preferred.

A wild guess.. I'd say maybe an extra 3-4 months? Only one way to find out...

The sweetener that was used in the drink also makes a difference. Aspartame, for example, breaks down fairly rapidly. Splenda lasts longer.
