    Why not drink coffee then, as it's healthier than the sugary drinks, if it's just for the caffeine?
    I can't stand the taste of coffee
    Plus if you're out and about coffee on the high street is far from healthy
    And I drink the diet versions of Coke & Pepsi - no sugar!!

    The diet versions have even more artificial sweeteners and additives in, which are just as bad as sugar, if not pretty much sugar anyway. I'm sure there is actual sugar in diet versions or they just wouldn't be able to be made; maybe it's not called sugar, doesn't mean it's not in there anyway.

    I have them every once in a few months. They trigger my migraines. Which is such a pity since I have a bottle of Club Orange rock shandy in the fridge from home and I really want it. :cry2:

    If you drink a 500ml bottle (not a can) you've had about 54g sugar - some of the Starbucks Grande drinks ~450 ml contain 60g+! This was actually blew up in the news before xmas, and *so* many people were shocked by it..

    Of course, depends what you order & if you go for coke/diet/zero/life, etc., as to which is worse for you. And Pepsi at least contains aspartame, etc.

    But it's definitely worth noting
    Yeah my bad. I should have looked it up.

    Those numbers are ****ing insane! Never going Costa either.

    Apologies
