    Regular coke is pretty nasty - that might just be a psychological thing because I know how many calories it has


    Coke zero alll the way

    I can tell the difference. Regular coke is awful, makes me feel sick. Think its the sugar. My favourite is coke zero, but usually drink diet coke.

    Not that many calories in Coke, but there is a hell of a lot of sugar (60% intake in 500ml)

    Yes you can tell the difference, Diet Coke tastes disgusting as it is much sweeter and has less fizz. I think the sweetners that they put in to replace the sugar are actually worse for you than proper sugar...its a con really.

    There is a massive difference! One word of warning about diet coke and coke zero (a freind told me they are literally indentical, I've never tried zero), they are extremely acidic so you prob want to rinse after or use a straw to avoid your teeth dissolving.

    I love diet, real coke is just sickly and leaves a residue on my teeth, I would take diet coke over its more fatty counterpart any day, although if pepsi is in the room then it is a whole different matter.

    Diet coke tastes like the head of a beer (obv without the alcohol taste). Just that kinda of foamy taste

    i don't see the point in diet coke
    if you're going to drink unhealthy soft drinks why not go for the one that actually tastes nice

    I think there's a very noticable difference. Don't like either really, but I'd rather regular over diet if it came down to it.

    I hate the coke you get out of taps, eurgh
