    Can you tell the difference between diet coke and coke zero?
    Absolutely. I hate diet coke. It tastes really bitter in comparison to Coke Zero.

    I can tell the difference between all types of coke.

    I prefer none of them because none of them are exactly amazing for your teeth and I'm hoping to become a Dentist.

    I can tell the difference. I drink regular Coke. But I guess it depends on what you drank first

    That's kind of harsh... we can't exactly help our taste buds!

    There's an experiment to see if people like/dislike brussel sprouts by seeing how many taste buds they had in a small area on their tongue. The ones who had more taste buds disliked the sprouts, whereas those with less don't. The same probably applies to those who cannot tell the difference between coke and diet coke.

    Diet Coke tastes way worse than normal Coke but I'd rather drink it 'cause of the lower sugar content.
    Anyway, water all the way. Any Coke isn't healthy.

    The taste of regular Coke is not bad, but what really gets me is just that coating of sugar it seems to leave on your teeth after you've had some. Yeeeech. I'll take Diet Coke every time if I'm choosing, but if someone gave me some normal Coke I'd still drink it.

    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:
    Coke Zero is a re-branding of Diet Coke. I know because I've been to one of their factories.

    I can definitely tell the difference... I probably prefer the taste of coke, but mostly drink diet coke.
    except recently I've pretty much been switching over to coke zero (which I can aslo distinguish from the others btw!).

    :yes:

    Cola is so much more acidic than Diet Cola and makes me burp. It probably depends whether or not you drink either on a regular basis to be able to tell the difference.

    That's how it is for me with water. I drink about a crate of bottled water a day :eek3: and when I drank a glass of tap water in England there was a big difference in taste.

    Diet Pepsi or water

    Coke Zero is marketed towards the men, Diet Coke towards women. Ditto the difference between Pepsi Max and Diet Pepsi.

    The taste of Coke Zero is better than Diet Coke for sure, and Diet Coke seems more bloating. However, they both beat Coke into oblivion, I just cannot enjoy drinking sickly 35g of sugar (half your daily allowance).

    I can tell the difference. Regular coke tastes better but i drink diet coke if i'm drinking coke usually.
    Unless it's with vodka, then i drink regular.
    I would have thought that you would be drinking diet coke with vodka, as the vodka taste is so strong you wont really be tasting the coke that much.

    I used to drink Diet Coke, and then one time I had a "normal" Coke and just prefer it by miles. I try to stay away from it though, for the pure reason it is full of sugar. But if I get a drink of Coke, I get normal Coca Cola, and not Diet Coke anymore.
