I don't drink diet pop because I just can't get past the artificial sugar flavour after taste. If desperate I will drink it but only if it is really cold as it seems to dull the taste. I guess I am just used to regular pop.
I have a best friend who loves the stuff and ALWAYS uses it for mix in her libations! When I visit her she offers me a rum and diet coke! Yuk! Of course I take it if it is all she has! My theory is, add lots of rum and the funny taste won't come through!
I know other people that are hooked on TAB and FRESCA. Just an acquired taste I guess!
I am not knocking others choices by any means, just jumping into the conversation!!
