I have not seen it yet, but read about on a fitness website i sometimes frequent. Hey, if you are gonna drink a coke, might as well make it a bit healthier!

I guess Cincy must be one of the test markets. I tried it and it tasted like...a diet Coke. And it's the same price as regular diet Coke too.

I wish I could have answered "both". My view is that I'm not about to quit my diet soda habit, so maybe getting few B vitamins from it can't be a bad thing?<br><br>
But of course they are out to make money. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> It's what they do.<br><br>
I wish I could have tried that Kona stuff, sounds awesome!

I always look to Coke for my vitamins.<br><br>
I thought it tasted a bit different than Diet Cok...more like Diet Pepsi.<br><br>
I think those two are in cahoots anyway.

I drink both, so I probably couldn't tell the difference anyway.<br><br>
Now if they can only come up with Diet Coke flavored vitamins.

My kids are big fans of the gummy vitamins. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I have to force them to not eat too many.

My SO thinks it will be a big hit among the anorexic crowd... :/<br><br>
Does it still have those scary artificial sweeteners?<br><br>
I'll take real soda if for some reason I'm just craving a soda. And I'll get my vitamin/minerals from my food!

Well that's just so.....traditional! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'm not sure, but I believe that Diet Coke Plus is sweetened with Aspartane as opposed to Splenda which is used in Lemon and Lime flavored Diet Coke.<br><br>
In my looking around, I read that the Diet Coke formula is based on the "New Coke" which would explain its similarity to Diet Pepsi.<br><br>
This thread really needs the input of SR Lopez, who is an expert on this subject. (As he is on about a million others)

I suggested something similar in a marketing/advertising class more than 20 years ago. Adding Ca and minerals to Tab. It was a group project and got voted down and then another member of the teamed voice my "idea" about adding Calcium and minerals to Tab at the end of his presentation The teacher <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif"> during his presentation. And he was "yeah, it just came to me". It was my real introduction for the real world <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif">
