Well here it is, if anyone is interested. Coke Zero is definitely better than Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, but that isn't saying a whole lot. All three suffer from the overwhelming and sickening taste of aspartame. Diet Mountain Dew OTOH, is far better than any of the colas. The aspartame taste is surprisingly subtle, and adequately masked by the "natural" Mountain Dew taste. It also helps that I have never been a big fan of Mountain Dew, thus can't stack it up against the taste of the real thing. In any case, we have a clear winner here. Thanks to Ed and pmark3100 for the suggestion.

The weird thing with me is I cannot stand sweetened beverages. The old man was a diabetic and I simply learned to love Tab and Fresca at a young age so Aspartame was a huge step up from Saccharin in my mind. Since I've switched, I've been able to impregnate lab rats. Plus Plus.

Lemonade sucks but Italian lemonade? Fuggeddaboutit! I love that stuff and yes it is sugary but it's more of a frozen treat or novelty if you will, and I'm sure that you will.

Nah, but after adopting your presidential candidate, I figure we should stick together. I think pmark's an Obama guy.

I think we can all agree that people who walk around with a bottle of designer water should be tied to a post and bleeded with a dull walnut shell.

I've been building up my immunity system by hanging around rest areas near the
Mexican border and drinking non potable water. I guess as long as you don't put it in a pot, it's ok.
