Diet Coke - The Sweet Alternative

Okay, yet another mystery in my life for you...

Why does diet coke taste sweeter than regular coke?

No seriously, think about it, the cool bit about diet coke is no sugar, but seriously it tastes sweeter than the coke full of sugar. I just don't get it, and every other time I have suggested that this is the case, the people I am with just look at me as if to say "Are you stupid, Diet coke has no sugar, how can it be sweeter!" But it is I am telling you.

Does any one else agree? or is it all in my head?

Just a thought I had...

Stay tunned.

Does Diet Coke actually have no suger? What is Coke Zero then?? Personally I prefer to stick to the origianal and the best! All these other variations cannot compare with the real thing. It might be full of sugar and other toxins...but who really cares? Obviously not that squirrel in the picture!

I think that Diet Coke is the original alternative with no sugar, but then they realised it tasted nothing like Coke, so they brought out Coke Zero, which also has no sugar, but is made to taste more like coke.

Em, I think you think too much. Just drink Diet Coke and enjoy! Who cares about why it is sweeter or not. All I know it that it is supposed to be better for us than regular coke.

Artifical sweetners can be as much as 8000 times sweeter than sugar, but I think the sweetner used in Diet Coke and Coke Zero is only about 200 times sweeter. Basically they only need to add the tiniest bit and it'll be as sweet or sweeter than normal Coke. Although I'm a true believer in having the real thing, or nothing at all (when it comes to Coke anyway).
