(WTOP)   Love Diet Pepsi, but hate how aspartame loses its sweetness so quickly and has such high susceptibility to heat? No worries, the company is testing acesulfame-potassium as a replacement. Mmmmm, acesulfame-potassium   (wtop.com) divider line 108

Works for me. I have an aspartame allergy.

AbbeySomeone: I've seen so many fat people clutching vats of diet soda, doesn't seem to help. That sh*t is evil, why not just drink water, or start smioking?


I agree. What's the farking point? Does everything that goes in your mouth have to be flavored? I watch calories, so I drink water or tea most if the time. When I really want a soda, I indulge and have the real stuff. Didn't have to "get used to the taste" or anything.

HeartBurnKid: A squeeze of lemon or lime goes a long way to making it palatable, though.


Oh, you're one of those people.

redly1: My wife left a couple of cases of Diet Pepsi in the un air conditioned breezeway this summer. It tastes horrible compared to something you buy straight out of the store cooler.


Might as well consign it to a whisky mixer, at this point. I'm thinking that's what I'll do with the 12-pack my lady bought but barely touched this summer; I ran out of Pepsi Next and just had one, blech. (Love Pepsi Next, sucralose and a dab of sugar tastes so much better to me than aspartame. Isn't that also what Pepsi One uses?)

seadoo2006: I don't care for coffee or tea because coffee is too bitter and tends to give me migraines and I really don't care for eating/drinking hot liquids (tea, coffee, soup). Caffeinated water gives you the benefit of the caffeine without any of the other additives, but it's pricey, so I tend not to drink it. I can get TWO 24-can packs of Diet Pepsi or FOUR 6-packs of 24-oz Diet Pepsi Bottles for $11 at Giant Eagle ... Versus about $2.50+ for Avitae ...


It seems like it would be easier to just buy those cheap little powder packets, like Hydroxycut and its knockoffs, or if you don't mind a little DIY, 100 caffeine pills for $5. Crush up whatever you need and dump it into whatever you want, swirl a little, and you have yourself a homemade energy drink! That way you can flavor it however you want or not at all, too.

Pepsi One is sucralose (Splenda) and sugar; Pepsi Next is a mix of sugar, Splenda and aspartame (a particular mix of sweeteners that makes me extra stabby, as an aside; pick one or the other artificial sweetener but don't lead us folks who are aspartame-sensitive on like this).

/would try Pepsi Next if it wouldn't make me sicker than a dog from the aspartame
//monkey. HATE. sugar/aspartame combos

Niveras: YodaBlues: I started drinking diet soda a few years ago when I was on a weight loss kick. It was farking HORRIBLE at the start, but after awhile, I got used to it and now I cannot drink regular soda. It's just too sugary. It coats your frigging teeth for hours afterward.

I don't know about teeth, but I find that regular sodas leave a sticky film on my lips after drinking, feeling like I have to rinse them after having a glass. Seems true of Diet Pepsi as well; my family only ever stocked Diet Coke, so I tend to avoid Pepsi as a result and don't really drink it except in dire circumstances.

These days, when in public, I stick with water anyway.




That's the corn syrup. Try Pepsi Throwback and see if it makes a difference. To me, the taste is about the same, but the after-feel is completely different.
My drink of choice is Pepsi Max. More caffeine, and a touch of ginseng, which tastes better than it sounds.
