    Let them try and fail with another product.

    I don't necessarily understand how you can create something mid-calorie, and how you would sweeten it. Do you mix something like aspartame or ace-k and HFCS? I mean with one or the other, the result will be none or normal amounts of calories.

    Wasn't Pepsi XL (or Pepsi Max) Ace-K plus sugar? Maybe this new Coke will be something similar, or sucralose with fructose, or something weird like that.

    Speaking of sucralose, has ANYONE seen Diet RC anywhere? I had my eyeballs open for it on my road trip last week and never saw it anywhere, just Diet Rite.

    Diet RC can be found in the area served by Royal Crown Bottling of Chicago, IL, and also in the area served by All-American Bottling Company, Louisville, KY.

    darn, I got some Cherry RC from All American. Almost didn't buy it til I saw the word "All" - as everything I've ever had from "American" bottling was terrible.) Didn't see any Diet RC though, but I was at a convenience store somewhere in Tennesse or Kentucky at the time.

    All-American is a totally different company than American. All-American products are top notch, not waterdown like American.

    I just don't see this working! You either want the sugar or you want the diet but I just don't see the need for anything in between. Heck just start putting REAL sugar back in Coke and sales will skyrocket!!!!!

    I've seen the Diet RC around the Mid-South area a time or two since Pepsi lost 7up in that area but it's a hard find and I've yet to try one.

    Joy another male directed Pepsi-One type drink. Dumb! Sure One wasn't mid calories but it was marketed as "not a diet" but still healthy. This will fail.
