    Yeah there's a big difference in taste. I generally drink Diet Coke just out of habit but I guess I like the taste of Coke best.

    Diet Coke is less fizzy than regular Coke and a bit more frothy, so I prefer it.

    Diet coke is Coke Zero under a different name. It was thought that Coke Zero would appeal to men, whereas women would prefer Diet Coke.

    No it's actually a different drink. Just try a glass of each and you'll be able to tell instantly. Diet Coke had become a drink in its own right, as opposed to a sugar-free version of coke, which Coke Zero is much closer to. It tastes a lot more like Coke than Diet Coke.

    But Pepsi Max is win.

    I can tell the difference and I always find Coca Cola far too sweet. I tend to get a sugar rush after drinking a can. So I prefer the diet stuff.

    I can tell the difference between all the Coke varities. TBH, regular Coke is disgusting now I have been living on Coke Zero and Diet Coke for 2 years! :eek3:

    Also, is it true McDonalds have phased out Coke Zero? Everytime I ask for my "can I have a medium Coke Zero Pwease" I get an offer for Diet Coke instead? :rolleyes:
