New Coke Zero Sugar
Quote | Reply
I don't drink soda often but I had one of these new ones the other day. It tastes amazingly like regular Coke.

Gross.

Coke flavoring with the chemical-like sweetener from Diet Coke.

Coke Zero was where it was at.

I had no complaints with Zero either.

According to Coke, customers did not understand that "Coke Zero" had zero calories and zero sugar. So, they changed the name to "Coke Zero Sugar." To me, that is confusing as hell. When they first announced it, I thought it was going to be "Mexican Coke," i.e., Coke made with pure cane sugar rather than corn syrup. Why else put "sugar" in the name when everyone knows "regular" soft drinks are made with corn syrup and not sugar?

They should just have had "Diet Coke" and "Other Diet Coke".

I was worried, but I've largely not noticed a big difference between Coke Zero and Coke Zero Sugar. Tastes basically the same. Still not as sweet as regular Coke.

It is definitely more Coke Zero than Diet Coke. I haven't had a chance to have it back to back with Coke Zero, but I felt Coke Zero Sugar had just a little less flavor. I would have to say I think I prefer the Zero Sugar.

I would doubt that in a blind taste test you could tell the difference between Coke Zero and Coke Zero Sugar. The change seems to be all about the rebranding, not a taste change, and I wouldn't be surprised if they hadn't changed the formula at all.

I had one a couple of days ago and couldn't notice a difference from Coke Zero. Prefer both to Diet Coke.

My preferences:
Coke Zero/Zero Sugar
Diet Pepsi
Diet Coke
Coke
Pepsi

I used to wonder how anyone could stand the taste of Diet Coke. Now I wonder how anyone can stand drinking something as sweet as full fat Coke.

I don't drink much soda, but when I do it's typically Coke Zero.

There's no getting around the presence of artificial sweetener and the absence of sugar/corn syrup, but I think the flavor profile is notably closer to regular Coke with this version. A minor tweak for sure, but a change for the better.

Mexican Coke, with real sugar or nothing. You people are also the reason we have more than one flavor of Doritos too.
