My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

coke zero

I have tried both the new Diet Coke with splenda, and this Coke Zero stuff. I gotta say, as much as I like Splenda, Coke Zero is way better. This is sweetened with aspartame (like Diet Coke), with the addition of acesulfame potassium, which is frequently used in combination with aspartame.

I don’t particularly hate regular Diet Coke to begin with, but the acesulfame potassium really cuts the bitterness of the aftertaste or something. It’s much smoother.

And yes, I am aware of the humor in reviewing the “bouquet” of a combination of artificially sweetening chemicals that are probably pickling my innards as we speak.
