C2 - I'm an addict
Okay I've been a coke addict for a long time. Cola that is. I love it, that dark sticky mass of sugar - I'm a total addict. I quit drinking, quit smoking, but this ... this is different. This is an addiction.

So coke decides to make C2 - a fantastic product that tastes just like regular coke but has half the calories and carbs. Fantastic. I love it! It's like coca cola methadone. Here's the catch - apparently I'm the only one on earth who likes this stuff because NO stores are carrying it anymore. And they're not getting it again, either. It's gone and will be departing the market for good according to my local grocery store rep.

How could Coca cola do this to me? They're monsters - that MUST be it!

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

1. Have you tried Coke Zero
It doesn't taste as good as C2 - but it tastes way the hell better than Diet Coke, which I don't understand - and how will they continue to sell Diet Coke when it sucks when the have a no calorie soda that tastes better.

Yet - Pepsi still sells Diet Pepsie and Pepsi One - but Coke zero tastes better than Pepsi One I think.

2. It's on the diet-y tasting side
the C2 tasted like the sugar fluid I've come to expect :)

In my quest for C2 I actually found a place that still sells Tab. Talk about your yucky tasting concoctions!

4. Coca-Cola Zero Tastes Fine... But It's Too Damn Fizzy
Actually, I suppose it has the SAME level of carbonation as any other version of Coke, but whenever you pour the liquid over ice it FOAMS and it takes a LONG time for the foam bubbles to dissipate.

Same thing in reverse... if you fill the glass FIRST and THEN add ice, it foams like crazy. (Normally, that's a great way to avoid excess foam with other diet colas.)

I don't mind the taste of Diet Coke (but then again, I don't dislike the taste of TaB either.)

6. I wonder if they still
sell it through the McDonalds drive-through as they were doing for awahile. If they're not that could give you a better indication as whether they're doing away with the product or not..
