    Does anyone think that Coke will eventually switch from Diet to Zero? There already is Sprite Zero, Vault Zero, Coke Zero and maybe other ones that I forgot about.

    Eh, that's tough. What exactly do you mean?

    If Diet Coke was called Coke Zero, what would Coke Zero be called?

    It'll be tough for Coke to phase out the Diet Coke formula, if that's what you mean.

    They've really played their brands a certain way that I'll be very surprised how it all turns out in the end.

    The Diet Coke loyal addicts (LOL) would most likely freak out if any name or formula changes were to take place. Diet Coke has been and will for ever be as sacred as Coke (Classic Coke).

    Coke Zero is still a young brand that has a bright future. IMO, Coke Zero has the potential to be a major player in the no carb/diet cola catagory.

    It's too early to throw out the bath water.LOL

    Even if Coke decides to 'Zero-ify' all their diets, I'm certain that Diet Coke isn't going anywhere. After all, they still manufacture Tab.

    Diet Coke will probably still be called Diet Coke as long as it's around. I suppose the flavored colas may eventually switch over to Zero.

    Other than that, I think the only Coke brand's still using "Diet" are Barq's (which is getting a new look soon, so that might change) and Mello Yello (which is being phased out, and the diet version isn't widely available). So yeah, Zero is effectively replacing Diet in the Coke portfolio.
