Diet Coke with Lime

POST #    724

Like the lime, don't like the diet.

Last week, I read something about Diet Coke with Lime and how this was a new product that Coke was rolling out. I might have read that they were thinking of other flavors as well. But I also might be imagining that last part. Anyway, this weekend, I spotted a Diet Coke with Lime for the first time in my local bagel place.

I don't like diet soda at all, but I do like Coke, and anyone who has read this site for a while knows that I love lime (anything key lime is a plus in my book). Why Coke insists on making it Diet Coke with Lime, I do not know. If they had Coke with Lime or Coke with Lemon, I would be all over them (I don't like Pepsi as much). I would say that Coke with Lime is pretty good, but I couldn't get over that diet aftertaste. It is probably something that takes a little getting used to, but I'll take my onset diabetes when it comes to me and enjoy all the Original Coke I can.

Has anybody else tried this caffeinated-lime concoction?

OOOOH. I need to keep up on these things. I've hate the lemon DC and the vanilla DC, so my hopes are kinda low, but I still must try....

That's interesting. I know people who have ordered a slice of lime with their cokes at restaurants for years, and love it. If they can have vanilla, cherry, crystal, etc coke, then coke with lime seems like its worth a try also.

i didn't know they were making lime! i've always wondered, though, why they just did the lemon (and now lime) flavor on the diet coke--it would be so great in regular!

I think it might have to do with the fact that regular Coke is much sweeter than DC. Some people say that regular has more flavor (BAH)...which might be why they opt to put extra flavors into the diet versions. Though real coke gets the cherry flavor, which is by far my favorite.

i think that regular has more flavor and it doesn't have that nasty aftertaste.
