A Month of Love: Day 5

I love Diet Coke.
A lot.
Every now and then, I force myself to give it up…
but I’m an imperfect person and lack self control.
It just tastes so GOOD!

Now, a few points of clarification:
I do not drink dc because of the “diet” part.
While that is a bonus, I honestly think dc tastes better than regular coke.
(If I had to choose between pepsi or diet pepsi, it would be regular pepsi hands down…)
I also do not drink dc for the caffeine…
it doesn’t have much of an impact on me.
I can drink a can of dc right before going to bed and have no problem sleeping!

In my opinion, dc tastes best when straight from the fountain.

Its the perfect balance of fizz and syrup.
Some fountains don’t taste awesome, but in most cases the fountain is the best choice.

However, getting my dc from the fountain isn’t the most convenient option.
So the second best way to get my dc is from the can.

And the can must be cold.
If I have a can, I do not like to pour it into a glass…
if it comes from a can, it has to stay in the can.

If I can’t have dc from a fountain…
and if I can’t have dc from a can…
the very last resort would be to drink from a bottle.

I just do not care for dc in a bottle.
Something about it is wrong.
Too much fizz…
not enough fizz…
wrong amount of syrup…
I’m not sure why I don’t like dc in a bottle, I just don’t!

So yes…I love diet coke.

So...I really don't like Diet Coke. Lol. But I totally agree that soda from a can should never be poured into a cup. It should always be consumed directly from the can, cold. Amen.

I totally agree that all soda's are better from the fountain! My preference is Dr. Pepper! Love it but try to stay away from it b/c I don't need those calories!

Diet Pepsi is way better than Diet Coke, but Coke is better than Pepsi. I would rank it can, bottle, and then fountain... unless we went with my true love of Mountain Dew and then the fountain wins every time. Also, a styrofoam cup is better than the plastic cups. The end.
