Coke C2, Coca-Cola's low-calorie/low-carb version of its original, pleasantly surprised some of our taste testers. It's mixture of corn syrup and artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose and Ace-K) produces a flavor and mouthfeel that closely resembles the original while providing only 45 calories per 8 oz serving. The beverage has far less aftertaste than Diet Coke, but the taste of the aspartame is still noticeable and detracts from the product. A straight blend of sucralose and corn syrup would be a major improvement. The labeling for Coke C2 is subtle, perhaps to the point of fault. The Coke C2 logo is far from eye-catching and the descriptive text "Lower Sugar Cola…half the sugar of regular cola" is still less conspicuous. Labeling aside, we think Coke C2 is a solid product that should find a niche among the folks that are neither here nor there with respect to cola calories.
