    well, i finally stumbled onto some coca-cola zero at a midtown drugstore and...

    it's definitely the best diet cola so far. the aftertaste is slight (but you almost have to TRY and taste it), and the cola taste is "stronger" than regular diet coke.

    if regular coke classic is a 10 for flavor. i'd give C2 a 9 (yes, i like it). zero an 8. and regular diet coke a 6. that's quite an improvement.

    i'm half-way through the bottle and... the aftertaste becomes less and less the more i drink (that's sort of what happened with C2 for me as well. now i barely taste any at all).

    zero will definitely replace diet coke and dc w/ splenda in my refrigerator. not sure if it will replace C2 or not though. we'll see.

    aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. the wait is finally over. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    YAAAY!!!!

    The sad thing is, I doubt you will have any choice as to whether or not it will replace C2. My guess is within a year your choice between C2 and Coca-Cola Zero will be a default one, as I doubt the former will still be offered....

    I'm so proud of you, Empire Buddy.

    But I noticed you had no mention of ice. Use ice, and I bet the score will go to 9.5

    it's true... it's better over ice. but, still... there's no substitute for real sugar (or high fructose corn syrup, as the case may be. LOL).

    sometimes you just want "the real thing." and, as good as zero is, i'm not ready to trade in my C2 yet.

    still, zero is very good, and a noticeable improvement. it will definitely replace diet coke for me (when available)... and, maybe, someday, C2. we'll see. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    ...and I, at least, think it is better in the cans.

    Go figure!

    i generally prefer cans over plastic bottles. bottled soda sometimes seems "flat" (maybe because it's exposed to sun light or something).

    i'm drinking from my second 20 oz bottle... over ice. and it does taste a lot like C2... but there is a difference (no sugar). [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Or how about caffeine free coke zero vanilla with lemon?

    And how about coke zero cherry?

    And the list goes on and on!

    You changed your picture and I almost freaked out.
    (LOL...Just joking,)

    Congrads....Your Coke Zero quest is finally over.
    After a few more bottles/cans you will slowly forget C2 ever existed. LOL

    Ask around, there is a way that you can capture a Coke C2 picture and format it into an Advare image. Hey you should have the picture you want. [img]smile.gif[/img]
