    I call it Splenda Coke. I tasted it, it seems alright, better than the Pepsi One Splenda version that's out now. Splenda was created as an alternative to aspartame. A lot of companies, you'll notice, will use Splenda/Ace K as sugar alternatives when they wouldn't use aspartame before. Coke and Pepsi are testing the waters to see if people would be ok with them ditching the aspartame. Now for a lesson:

    What's wrong with aspartame?

    Aspartame a.k.a. NutraSweet is a neurotoxic posion. It breaks down on the shelf or in the human body into several toxins and the amino acid d-phenylalanine. Those toxins being formaldehyde, methanol, formic acid and diketobenzaprine (DKP). Formaldehyde, boys and girls, is embalming fluid. Not too nice to the human body. Methanol is a wood alcohol which is present in aspartamein large amounts. In aspartame, it breaks down into formaldehyde and formic acid (fire ant venom). The FDA recommends a limit of 7.8 mg/day of methanol. A quart of aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg methanol. DKP has been shown to cause brain cancer in lab rats. Furthermore, d-phenylalanine as present in aspartame is a free excitotoxin with similar effects to the amino in monosodium glutamate (d-glutamic acid). An excitotoxin is a chemical which can penetrate the brain barrier upon digestion in large amounts. When it reaches the brain, it causes overstimulation of the brain's neurons, so that they become very excited to the point of cell death. It's like forcing 100 watts of power through a 60 watt light bulb. Like little xmas lights on the brain, its neurons flicker faster and brighter until they burn out. Aspartame and MSG-like substances have been linked to major neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's and Fibromyalgia, as well as numerous physical problems including macular degeneration, digestive issues and in an ironic twist, gross obesity. Some persons are more sensitive to feeling the effects of these substances than others, but they effect everyone to some degree as they are poisons, not allergens.

    It's a tad sweeter and less "dry" that the Nutrasweet coke. It's almost indistinguishable from regualr coke, IMO.

    aspartame gives me a frickin headache no matter how much I take in. I use splenda if I have to and very rarely use sweet and low but we should stay away from carbonated beverages all together because the phosphoric acid pulls magnesium out of your system which inhibits the uptake of calcium.

    I wrote to Coke almost 5 years ago asking them make a Splenda version of their Diet Coke. Splenda is the closest thing to sugar without actually being sugar.. I'm sure they received many letters like mine.. Why did it take them so long? It's surely going to be a hit...

    Splenda was/is more expensive to source than nutrasweet. The unit-cost of the ingredients are virtually-zero, so adding a high-value sweetener f*cks-up the margins a bit. Spenda was 5x the cost of nutrasweet when introduced.

    Pepsi already came out with their version. Pepsi One is now made with Splenda/Ace K.

    It's too bad big business rules the FDA or we might have a less harmful sweetener like Stevia (which has never shown toxic effects and actually helps regulate insulin levels) on the market. Still, it's progress.

    What store did you find it, bro? VONS, Ralph's, and Pavillion don't have it here in SoCal.

    I got an online coupon for a 2 liter and can't find a damn store that has it.

    I found it at a small store (not a chain) in the central valley. I know they send out to tester areas, then to others if the feedback is good. There's a botteling plant nearby me, so maybe that's why I can get it here.

    I am in Mesa and i have found it at every grocery store around(bashas,albertsons,safew ay, etc) I buy the cans in the box that goes in the fridge, it looks like the diet coke box but has yellow on it, almost looks like it would be lemon flavored by the box. I actually yelled at my wife for getting it when i saw the box becasue i thought it was lemon, but turned out to just be diet with splenda

    BY GEORGE, I THINK I GOT IT!!!

    Without looking for it, I found it at a VONS that I don't normally shop at. Ironically, I went there looking for a birthday cake that neither Albertson or Pavillion had. And after finding the cake, something told me to check out the 2 liter drink section and VIOLA....there they were. And you are all right, it's pretty damn good. Until I can find a store that sells the 2 liter diet Barq's (my fave), this will be my new drink of choice.

    Thanks bro. I guess I'll have to drive an extra mile for it but it's all good. Hell, it might be a little cheaper than Pavillion anyway.

    And also thanks for the birthday thread, bro. I responded on it in order to bounce it to the top.

    Haven't tried that new Diet Coke yet but I saw it in a store, I will have to give it a shot.

    I don't like Splenda powder though. I MUCH rather prefer Equal.
