For about 5 years, I have been lamenting the loss of my beloved C2, Coke's lower calorie cola option that was available from about 04-07.
I have one single can of Coke every morning as my coffee. I loved that C2 tasted so close to regular Coke, but with just half the calories. I have tried to switch to both Diet Coke and Coke Zero, and both make me feel sick a few hours after I drink them. Plus they just don't taste good.
So after C2 was discontinued, I reluctantly went back to the classic Coke because there just wasn't a good substitute.
HOWEVER, on Friday night I picked up a can of Pepsi Next and am excited to report that it's so so so close to the taste of regular full-sugar cola! As soon as I am out of my stockpile of Coke, I'm totally switching over.
In related news, I am wondering how in the world I missed this product launch. Did you guys hear about it somewhere?
