I'm an addict...and somewhere I read (maybe it was even on this message board) that either it wasn't available on AC or that it was different, or really expensive.

Any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Teacher, it's nice to meet a fello addict. I have found "coke lite" in AC. It's a slightly different recipe and it is bottled by the local coca cola plant I believe. It's pretty close (maybe a few more calories than DC) and I managed my addiction quite well the two times I was there last year.

debbie sent me an interesting internet article this week that is linking the artificial sweeteners in diet sodas to multiple sclerosis, inner ear imbalances & other fun stuff. none of it has been proven, to my knowledge. it said the fda is suing monsanto, who manufactures it.

i do not know how real it is either.

just passing it on....

That bunk about aspartane has been around for years. I'm not saying it is GOOD for you, but what they are claiming is false.

Go to
for a full explanation, and links to peer-reviewed journals concerning this subject.

Just got back from AC and Diet Coke is available from the local distributor (as "Coke Lite"). Cost, I think, was $18.50 American for 24-20 oz. plastic bottles (and $2 American for deposit on the case). Tastes a little different than the Diet Coke we get in the U.S. but not far enough off that you would notice it much. For those of you who prefer Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke (and I'm one of them), we DID find cans of Diet Pepsi at both the larger and smaller stores but we never found them as anything but individual cans at about 75 cents - $1 American each.

Good God people, are you living under some rock? Better do more research on the toxic effects of Aspartame before you make a dangerous claim as the product. Is has been proven to be toxic, end of story.

Why would anyone drink soda pop when they could have fresh lime juice?

yeah, yeah. Nearly everything is toxic in large enough doses. But that "thumper" thing, et al... now that really works wonders. And since this is the board that is supposed to be about Ambergris Caye, that will be the end of the story for me.

DR. Glen, please give it up. On another thread it's "don't drink the water on AC because it's chlorinated and deadly" (by the way, I thought it tasted pretty darn good on a hot day). Here it's don't drink the Diet Coke because it has aspartame and it's deadly and we're too stupid to know it. Good Lord, wait until he gets to the rum, the conch and the silica particles in the air. If life has to be spent fearing everything we eat, drink or breath then let me live a short but happy life. (Without cymatic therapy, mini-thumpers or other pseudo-science "enhancers".)
