you are repeating yourself

Coca Cola are at Sihl City doing personalized cans for free...

you have a point though. I am happy that my child doesn't even want to try Coca Cola.

I am confident that your child drinks RIVELLA, our national drink, or SINALCO or apple/pear-juice

Just back from London; Selfridges food court had thousands of those green cokes all severely reduced. It doesn't seem to be a good seller.
I suspect the hideous green packaging has more to do with the lack of sales than the taste.

Forget normal Coke, I wish they would produce the "Man Coke" with double the calories, sugar and additives.
They do... in countries with less stringent laws than the US. First time I heard that was from my Chinese classmates back in college who complained that coke in Europe does not taste as strong as in China. I always thought it was bullshit till I had some over there and it is noticeable stronger. I am having some coke light every day in Asia and when I went to Australia two weeks ago notices that it does not have half the taste there it has over here...

So this thread full of people from different parts of the world might explain why different people have so different experiences with the "same" product.

Re: The final demise of Coke Light?

I just tried the green coke last week. Wholly unimpressed. It's nice but it's no better than regular coke.

It tastes to me just like half-n-half coke (Everyone at work at my last office job used to take the piss out of me because I would always order a "half and half" coke: half regular, half diet. It is less indulgent than full regular coke but has a nice taste to it, unlike disgusting pure diet coke! haha)

Treverus I agree about coke tasting different in other countries. Coke zero is drinkable here and in other European countries, but it is disgusting in the UK. Pepsi max is ok over there but not nice here. Cherry coke here is just not the same taste at all. Here it tastes kind of floral or something. "Bakc home" it has a stronger more almondy taste. (taking about the full-sugar versions; diet cherry coke is gross. Cherry pepsi max is good though)

According to my 15 year old who is the only ( occasional) coke drinker in this house cherry coke zero is the most disgusting thing ever produced by coca cola.

We wouldn't have this hilarious video without diet products though

Well, there was also the failed introduction of Dasani in the UK
