brightwanderer: Ariel from The Little Mermaid (Ariel)
I am currently experimenting with diet drinks to try and train myself to adjust to the taste of sweeteners. Verdict so far:

1. Coke Zero: okay while you're drinking it, tastes like real Coke, but leaves a noticeable aftertaste.

2. Diet Pepsi: tastes quite a lot like real Pepsi (which I prefer to Coke), but the sweeteners are pretty noticeable while you're drinking it, though there's no aftertaste problem.

3. Diet Coke: WTF this is easily the most drinkable of them so far. o.o Doesn't taste like real Coke, but that's okay since real Coke isn't my preference anyway, and the sweeteners aren't noticeable while drinking or afterwards as more than a brief backtaste. Am I just getting used to them?

4. Pepsi Max: will not try this except in utmost extremity as my experience of it in the past has been that it is undrinkable filth.


Other discoveries: diet tonic water is interchangeable with real, because the backtaste of the tonic itself masks the sweeteners. Fruit juice is FULL OF SUGAR WTF woez.

... I am still boggled by the Diet Coke thing, I thought it was going to be disgusting.
