    I just wanted to get your opinion on what you think of Vault and how it compares with Surge...better, worse...?

    I love vault but as you can tell by my name, I love surge more. That's just my opinion. I think that surge had a different taste than vault and I like it better. Both are great though.

    They're very, very close. SURGE is perhaps a bit smoother to drink, but the average person would be hard pressed to tell the difference unless they were put side-by-side and told to really concentrate on it.

    I consider it a tweaking of the formula rather than a different beverage. There's probably as much difference between VAULT and 2nd generation SURGE as there is between 1st and 2nd generation SURGE.

    I think HM has hit the nail on the head.

    I just did a taste-test comparison between the two last night (I have some SURGE hidden away I bought in 2004), so I'm personally confident with my findings.

    I think the extra heaviness of VAULT comes from the "stuff" they had to add in (artificial flavoring, more sugar) to offset the bitterness of the extra caffeine.

    But for me the difference is really subtle. When I tried the SURGE last night, my first impression was, "This tastes like VAULT." After guzzling some of it and VAULT< I moved on to dnL, Sun Drop, and MDX, and none of those taste anything remotely like SURGE and VAULT. It's pretty clear to me that Coke, inadvertantly or not, stayed away from cloning its competitors and ended up with yet another tweak of SURGE.

    I bought it in 2004 but it expired in October of 2001. The can I just had tasted quite fresh, and in fact better than some of the ones that I had from this lot back in 2004. Its carbonation levels were about equal with VAULT.
