You need to update "Caffeine Free Diet Coke" to accept more answers. I tried caffeine free coke, diet coke caffeine free, coke caffeine free and nothing worked.

Can't you accept "Diet Caffeine Free Coke"? And (non-wild) "Cherry Pepsi"? Also, why do Fanta and Crush get to be considered as a group of sodas while Pepsi and Coke are split up into a bazillion different flavors? I typed Orange Crush but didn't get it, so gave up on all things Crush.

Fanta is kind of an oddball for this list - there are so many different flavors and varieties. Surely no specific flavor would make this list by itself - at least not nearly this high on the list. Seems a bit inconsistent, given that all the different varieties of every other brand are listed individually.

For whatever reason in our area you an only get caffeine free coke in cans, while caffeine free diet coke you can get in cans or bottles. So CFC is losing out on the bottle market.

I actually prefer Diet Coke to regular Coke. Regular Coke tastes like you are drinking pancake syrup straight from the bottle. It's disgusting. Especially when not ice cold. But the caffeine free varieties.. I don't know what it is, but somehow this interacts with the fizzy properties of the soda and changes how the drink's flavor and texture in a way that I don't think is good. I feel more burpy and bloated after drinking caffeine free coke and I think it has a worse after taste.

Find some that still puts sugar (cane sugar) in it. After the New Coke scam, they came back with Coca Cola "Classic" (instantly giving us an overused sound bite word), by shadily reformulating it with corn syrup. It's not the same.

Diet Rite is all my husband will drink. But you can't drink an RC without a moon pie, so maybe it's a southern thing.

Never heard of Bru and Tango. Around the Middle East and Eastern Europe Mirinda is very popular. If this was 1984 then you might see RC Cola, Diet Rite, and Tab... but obviously not now.

Here in Finland there is no diet coca cola, but Coca cola light. Is it same? Also here is Pepsi max (no sugar) is it same as Diet pepsi?

Coke Light is the same as Diet Coke. Pepsi Max is not the same as Diet Pepsi.

Jun 10, 2019
Yea spend over half of the time typing light for everything ( and each time changing the rest of the sentence, so cola light, light cola, coke light, light coke, coca cola light, light coca cola etc. And that for each version.... took a looooooong while before diet entered my mind, and somehow still couldnt stop thinking of light.

Is it a US thing or does the UK say diet aswell? Usually you hear the english version of stuff so often that you are very aware of the difference in name with your own country. This time it didnt click though...
