    I can tell the difference - regular coke makes my teeth feel sort of 'soft' on the surface for a bit - it's a really strange feeling! So yes, I can tell the difference and I drink diet coke.

    I can tell the difference and I prefer Diet Coke to be honest, Coke makes me feel sick as it's too sweet. It's the same as you can tell the difference between Pepsi and Coke (Pepsi being less sweet)

    I'm sure if I actually drank both in quick succession, I'd be able to notice a difference; however, as that's never happened, then I imagine that I'd be pretty clueless if served one or the other and asked to say which one it is

    My option isn't on there. I can tell there is a difference, but can't tell you which is which :p:

    I drink diet coke on its own, but vodka and coke (mostly out of laziness, quicker just to say coke!)

    I can tell the difference and prefer Diet Coke. Regular Coke is far too sweet and gassy for my liking. I'll drink it if there's nothing else though.

    My favourite Coke flavour is Cherry atm.

    Can you tell the difference between Coca Cola and Diet Coke, and which do you prefer to drink?

    Options:

    1. I can tell the difference, and I drink Coca Cola
    2. I can tell the difference, and I drink Diet Coke
    3. I can tell the difference, and I have no preference
    4. I can't tell the difference, but I drink Coca Cola
    5. I can't tell the difference, but I drink Diet Coke
    6. I can't tell the difference, and I have no preference
    I think I could tell the difference in taste, but even if I couldn't I can definitely tell that regular coca-cola leaves a horrible gritty feeling on my teeth which I presume is from all the sugar(?), and diet coke doesn't have this effect.

    For this reason I always choose diet coke. I don't mind the taste of regular coke though.
