Courtesy of my crappy camera-phone - a picture of a new thing I found today.

Now all that Diet Coke I drink is good for me right? :-)

Diet Coke "Plus" - Diet Coke with Vitamins & Minerals! I'm a bit scared by the names of these "vitamins and minerals" though:

  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
  • Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6)
  • Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)
  • Acesulfame Pottassium

I just don't know - those long, chemical'ish sounding names don't sound very "vitaminy" to me...

Bottoms up!

Have you tried it to see what it tastes like? I've seen this down here in Dallas too.

Haven't tried it yet - I have to polish off the other open 20oz bottle first... :-)

I support this conclusion 100% - thought I have to tell you - I don't care for how it tastes.

Have you ever read the back of a vitamin bottle? All the vitamins have long scary names. And that last one is an artifical sweetener. I think it's the one sold under the name Sweet One. Diet Dr. Pepper is my weakness.

We don't like Diet coke plus it has a strange after taste and goes flat very quickly.

coke with vitamins? is that even possible? heh. i'm glad that hasn't hit singapore yet. we only have diet coke and coke zero. and the latest diet soda i've seen is sprite zero. not many options here, which is good coz i am forced to drink water.

I like it-but then again,I'll drink anything diet+ carbonated. There's probably an RDA on those vitamens/minerals though, you can get too much of a good thing.

I wasn't thrilled with the vitamin Diet Coke. I guess nutrient-free Diet Coke is what I like best, however Diet Pepsi Max is pretty good. It's got ginseng or something in it.

Aw, Scott, your so cute. I can help you sme - although I'll be getting more specifics on these when I take a class all about "food chemistry," but here's what I can tell you. Those are the nutrients they claim to be, and they are just listed in specific scientific name forms on the bottle. Niacinamide is just the scientfic name for Niacin, which "used to" be called vitamin B3. The same thing holds true for B6 & B12. The scientific community doesn't call them B6 or B12 when using techical terms because these are not atoms, they are large molecules. It's also the only way they have to distiguish one molecule that may be similar to another. Acesulfame Potassium (Potassium which is a mineral - not a vitamin) is a molecule that contains potassium in it - and when injested is broken down by the body to obtain the potassium that you need. The rest of it gets either broken down and passed through - or "denatured" (i.e. in tact but unusable) and passed though.

I can't handle any of the diet cokes. Diet Pepsi Max isn't that bad but my favorites are diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Mt Dew. Although, on my blog (http://canddbishop.com/blog) I found an article stating that all soda increase risk factors for heart disease. Lets all hope that isn't the case.
