My Ode to Diet Coke

Hello, my name is Traci, and I am a Diet Coke-aholic…

I have to have at least one Diet Coke per day, or as my college roommate will attest to, I get mean.  I know a Diet Coke can take the rust off of a penny… I know when you stick a Mentos into a Diet Coke it sends an explosion of foamy, beautiful carbonation shooting out of the bottle. But I don’t care. I love the crisp, subtle sweetness of the refreshing caramel colored liquid, and I always smile as the bubbles tickle my nose.

I’m also one of those persnickety people who can tell the difference between Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi in just one sip. The saccharine sweetness of the Diet Pepsi is a dead give away. There is nothing I hate more than when you order a Diet Coke and they bring you a Diet Pepsi. At least give me the heads up, so I can order iced tea (no lemon) instead! (Speaking of lemon – I’ve lived in New York for nearly 10 years, and still don’t understand why they put lemon in Diet Coke???? Can anyone explain this one to me?)

My favorite way to drink it isn’t in a can… or a bottle… or poured into a glass. It’s from the fountain! And do you know who has THE BEST Diet Coke from a fountain? This might be a little shocking… McDonald’s! I don’t know what they do – but I hope they never change. The balance between the syrup and the carbonation is perfect. I will literally go to McDonald’s, and just order Diet Coke. Who does that?

Plus, did you know that Coke syrup can help with a few ailments, at least according to my mom (and I’ve tried them, and it works). A few teaspoons can help with nausea and coughs! Let’s see if Pepsi can do that.

So, you know where I stand… What do you think? Coke or Pepsi?
