I Think Diet Soda Is Awful

    Yuck

    I've never even had diet soda and I find it repulsive. No sugar in a soda? Wrong wrong wrong. Unless you're diabetic I suppose... But it still seems nasty.

    Just a Little Longer

    i quit drinking soda a week ago.  i've quit before and i know that anytime i've started again, it's just tasted so disgusting and strong.  but i really don't like diet soda.  i especially don't like diet pepsi, and i really don't like it when it is in a 20 oz...

    Horrible

    I'm not a huge fan of soda, period, and I rarely drink it. Maybe 2 a week, sometimes less. If I do drink a Coke, it is a real Coke. I despise diet soda. I don't like artificial sweeteners, and if I want a no calorie beverage I'll just have a damn glass of water.

    I Don't See the Point!

    Soda without actual sugar is disgusting. It's not worth it! If you want a "diet" drink, go for water.

    Ew.

    My mum drinks this stuff all the time. I used to take a bottle of it every now and then, but only if I was really thirsty. It's just so nasty!

    I'Ve Never Liked The Taste

    I don't get why people drink so much diet soda. It has always had a sort of bitter "off" taste to me. People drink too much soda in general these days. Sweet bubbly drinks should be a rare treat, not an everyday beverage. When you only drink soda a few times per week, you might...

    Bad Tasting And Bad For You

    I know it is not so easy but diet soda doesn't help you lose weight so I think they should get rid of it. Fake sugar makes your body want normal sugar more which drives you to eat more sweets. Also, fake sugar has all these other uncertain health effects like cancer and stuff...

    Rather Have Regular.

    If I'm going to drink soda, it's rare, but I'd much rather have a regular one. The diet stuff tastes gross and it gives me stomach pains, so I don't drink it lol!

    Is It Just Me?

    I don't like it when a server provides me with a diet soda. I thirstily take a gulp and bam, that awful taste permeates my mouth and I can't wait to get rid of it.   Arg!  Then, when I ask for a replacement drink the server argues that it isn't a diet drink. ...

    Why?

    I never quite understood why people drink diet soda. It has this awful, chemical aftertaste that just makes me want to vomit. And what's the point anyway? Everyone knows soda is full of sugar and very, very bad for you. If you don't want to get fat, don't drink it. Every time...

    Diet????????

    Anything that has the word DIET in it is not fit to consume.  Three of the four letters in the word tell you all you need to know about the product; DIE. I will stick with all non-diet foods and drinks.  They tast better.

    Gross!

    It tastes like soap powder, i hate it! Also, aspartame, the sweetener used in most diet drinks has been linked to cancers, making it potentially more dangerous than sugar could ever dream of. given a choice between bad teeth and cancer, i'll take the bad teeth, thanks!

    Whether It's Diet Or Not...

    ...it's still junk. Best to drink water and juice, and then treat yourself to REAL soda on occasion.
