    What's up!, my friends came back from my trip to Vegas and brought me a lot of Coke stuff from the Coca-Cola museum in Vegas and this sodas:

    -Coca-Cola Classic
    -Dasani Regular
    -Dasani with Raspberries
    -Diet Coke Vanilla
    -Diet Coke with Lime
    -Coca-Cola with Lime

    The first I drank of those is DC with Lime and here's my review:

    After drinking it slowly, IMO The taste of DC with Lime is quite good, but to be honest (like I said in previous posts) tastes like if someone placed a Lime hard candy into a Diet Coke. To be honest Coca-Cola Light Citra tastes better because tastes more like real lime.

    Soon I'll post my reviews about Dasani Raspberry, DC Vanilla and Coke with Lime.

    I personally enjoy Diet Coke With Lime in the 20 oz bottle than in the can. If I could, I'd probalby buy 12 at a time.

    I enjoy Pepsi Lime. The lime tastes more real and blended in flavor with the flavor of Pepsi.

    Ouch, really? That's like the ultimate insult for any lime flavor, I think. Not that I dislike lime candy, but it definitely doesn't have its place in beverages(except those little kid drinks that soccer moms can buy 30 at a time). I really don't think the lime is that bad. You might have a better experience with Cocacola with Lime.

    And it might be too late since you're already back in Mexico, but if you can, try Pepsi with Lime. In my opinion, it has a more honest lime flavor, and is better overall.


    Funny(and slightly relevant) story: When I was in DC a while back, I got a 1/2 pound of ceviche(fish and shrimp cured in lime juice) at Safeway. All I can is, that they didn't use lime juice. Instead, they used a light vinegar to cure the seafood(which is ok), but then they put in some artificial lime flavoring with it. It was horrible.

    You're right, Ceviche with artificial lime? Ugh!, With real lime tastes better!, come to Mexico at any seafood restaurant (in spanish is "Mariscos") and try the mexican ceviche, it's good!.

    I totally agree... Where is the BEVNET Review if Pepsi Lime/Diet Pepsi Lime? Both are awesome. The lime aroma literally jumps out of the bottle or the can when you pop it, yet, it does so without overpowering the Pepsi. It's a surpisingly natural lime too. My mom, one of the toughest food critics on earth, said she could tell the difference between Diet Pepsi Lime and Diet Coke w/Lime. Both the regular/diet versions of Pepsi Lime have a much brighter & limey finish. The diet version is especially impressive...it tastes identical the the regular version. There's no diet aftertase...just a lot of lime flavor. This is my most-purchased new soda along with Coke Zero.

    Why do you need a Bevnet review if you have your opinion? I don't think Bevnet goes down to the corner store and buys the soda. I believe the producer send them.
    Whatcha gonna do mama now that the roast beef is gone?

    Uh, look at BevNET's reviews of most mainstream beverages here, they're poor.

    BevNET would probably review Pepsi Lime with a poor score.

    Like Coca-Cola Citra, it has full lime taste and less diet aftertaste, and that's why it's my favorite Diet drink here in Mex, If you visit Mexico, try it!.
