It was announced yesterday that Coca Cola is coming out with yet another diet, called Coca Cola Zero. It is to be sweetened with both aspartame and acesulfame potassium. If memory serves me correctly, this should taste the same as Diet Coke does in Canada, which is sweetened with the same.

You can buy that in the UK? Wish we could here :( Coke sells various Diet flavours here, with Vanilla, with Lime etc. Pepsi is just marketing Pepsi, Pepsi Max and Diet Pepsi.

I'm sure the lemon Pepsi (sold as Pepsi Twist in the U.S.) will work its way down to Australia.

The cherry Diet Pepsi sold here is fantastic!

I found that the low-carb Pepsi EDGE is very good. Pity it's going away. I also found that Pepsi ONE is good as well.

Isn't Pepsi One the same thing as PepsiMax, aside from names?

From what I understand, the formulation of Pepsi One is slightly different from that of Pepsi Max.

I also believe the formulation of Pepsi Max may differ depending on what country it is sold in.

This thread has certainly drifted off-topic, hasn't it?

I thought Pepsi had discontinued the Pepsi One product . . . ?


Meanwhile . . . a couple of TV ads for PepsiMax and the new PepsiMax Twist . . .

There are two Pepsi ONE drinks:

The first one hard aspartame and was available for about two years. It was ok. The second Pepsi ONE was released recently. Instead of aspartame, it contains splenda and it tastes better - the last one had an aftertaste!

I wish I could get Pepsi One here in the UK. I'll just have to have another PepsiMax Twist instead!

The Splenda-sweetened Pepsi One just became available in the Boston area, it does taste better than the previous aspartame-sweetened product.

The new Diet Coke has yet to appear in this area though.

Unfortunately, Coca Cola 0 has not appeared in stores just yet (at least around here). I, however, arrived home from another fun trip to Montreal, Quebec, Canada this past weekend (which is why I wasn't online for a few days, but could web browse via my mobile phone). Exchange rate was about the same as was last October, $100 USD obtained $121.85 CAD, gasoline (or petrol) was the equivalent of $3.20 USD per gallon, it was priced between 92.9 and 99.9 cents per litre up there.

Diet Pepsi (sweetened with both above) was 99 cents on sale. Pepsi (U.S.) ought to do the same as Coke, come out with a diet soda sweetened with both aspertame and acesulfame potassium.

I have tried the diet version. Pepsi gets it right each time, while Coca-Cola gets it wrong.

Every flavored Diet Pepsi that I've tried, is great. The worst flavored soda I've tried to date is the Vanilla Diet Coke.

Agreed, that stuff tastes awful. Pepsi has no flavoured Diet varities here, although there is a Lime flavoured Diet Coke here - which doesn't taste too bad. (Still prefer PepsiMax!)

I think everything may be test-marketed here first, before Pepsi decides to sell a product outside of the U.S.
