View Full Version : Diet RC Cola!

07-13-2010, 12:02 AM

As someone who mostly drinks diet sodas now I have found a new favorite. Diet RC Cola. No aspartame either! It has a very sweet, crisp refreshing taste. I found some at Walmart, which last time I was there also had Cherry RC but this Sunday they did not have it any longer. Another very good diet soda with Splenda is Diet Cheerwine.

Diet RC is good, but it seems to be getting more and more scarce. It was widely available in the NC Triad area up until 2004 and then it started to fade away. It seems to have been replaced by Diet Rite Cola (which is also sweetened with Splenda but does not contain caffeine). I wish Diet RC would make a comeback around here.

It is rare around here too. I have only seen it recently and only at Walmart. This morning the Cherry RC was back. But now all the other flavors of Diet Rite except for cola are gone. No more Cherry Diet Rite, Tangerine or White Grape. These flavors have disappeared all of a sudden from every store around here. :confused:

Diet RC is pretty common here in Houston (2 liters, 12 pack cans, 20 oz. singles). Diet Rite is fairly common as well, but only at certain grocery stores. Wal-Mart is usually hit or miss around here. Cherry RC was just recently re-introduced here in the past month or so.

I'd like to try Diet RC, Diet Rite is absolutely horrible.

I've said it before here - whenver I've had the chance to try Diet RC, I've been underwhelmed by it. Not near as good as I expected.

I've had mixed experiences with Diet RC. The last couple of times I've had it, it tasted very good. Those samples were 2-liter bottles from Choice USA. The last time I had it in cans, however, it was not as good; it tasted like it didn't have enough sweetener in it. I'm not sure where those cans originated, but I bought them in either western VA or northeastern TN.

Diet RC is my all-time favorite diet cola! I buy it regularly at my local Kroger.

I bought a two liter of Diet RC from Jewel and tried it for the first time a week ago, I'm a huge fan.

It tasted a lot better than I expected it to, I really want to buy them in cans soon.

Wow, that's an old photo. 2005. I've moved on to like 3-4 different "beverage trees" by now ;)
