Good riddance. Worst soda I've ever tasted in my life. When I was a kid I used to go to my grandparent's place to stay in the summer for a week or the weekend and the only soda they had was Tab. Blech.

There's already a whole thread on this today in both the Food TaB and Business TaB, so why not the Main TaB?

Since Obesity and Diabetus are two magnets for the Rona, it just makes sense to shy away from the diet drinks by the largest producer of sugar beverages in the universe.

My grandmother was the only person I know to actually drink that crap on purpose.

An interesting footnote, I was looking up the history of Crystal Pepsi some weeks back and discovered that it Coca Cola released a clear version of Tab that intentionally tasted bad and with misleading marketing just to sour the market for clear cola. And it worked!

Of course, they used Tab to do this because who cares if Tab sucks? And Coca Cola certainly wasn't going to injury their flagship brand.

I read about hipsters adopting it a few years back, because of course they did.

I was wondering how I missed the first run of this that it got a Repeat tag. That would explain it. Shocked it's not a duplicate from drunk admins on Friday afternoon...

back in the old days, you had a few choices in diet sodas:   Tab, Fresca and Diet Rite.   That was it.  The first two are nasty.

I seriously thought that Tab had been discontinued in the mid to late 80s. Did it go regional?

My mom banned Fresca in about 1969 or so, after reading the ingredient list.

FTFA - Other drinks the company plans to discontinue include Diet Coke Feisty Cherry, Sprite Lymonade and Coke Life

Seriously? Sprite Lymonade *just* reached my area (the SF Bay Area, tiny locale that it is) in the last couple weeks. Of course it's not selling well, if it isn't selling everywhere.

Buy the cheapest generic diet cola you can find, and let it go stale six months past its sell-by date.

Kind of like Diet Coke or Pepsi, but with a noticeable bite of fake sugar.

Fresca is an excellent mixer for vodka!

Pinner: [YouTube video: Tab Cola]


I can remember my grandmother insisting that she drank tab just so she would look like that girl in the commercial.
Aside from the miserable taste, it was good assurance that none of the boy grandchildren would drink out of her glass...

Gma repeatedly knew you were coming for a visit and never once stocked in what you like to drink?

She hated your ass.

Can they discontinue Diet Coke and replace it with Coke Zero while they are at it?  Diet Coke tastes nothing like Coke, while Coke Zero is a passable substitute for the real thing.  Except when you order it, half the time you get Diet Coke instead.

Super Chronic: thought it was already kind of outdated by the time they mentioned it in Back to the Future, 30+ years ago


Diet Coke was introduced in 1982 and TaB still had a decent amount of popularity and was widely known when it was mentioned in BTTF.

flondrix: Diet Coke tastes nothing like Coke, while Coke Zero is a passable substitute for the real thing.


That's because Diet Coke was made from a different flavor formula. Diet Coke was not just Coke with artificial sweeteners.

New Coke (later, Coke 2) was actually the flavor profile of Diet Coke that was made with real sweeteners.

Coke Zero is the original flavor formula of Coke, made with artificial sweeteners.

Probably not, because it's actually selling.

Ironically hey probably used whatever New Coke syrup\flavoring they had leftover in the back to pull this off.
