Diet Coke Plus

Diet Coke Plus bottle.

Diet Coke Plus is a new formulation of Diet Coke fortified with vitamins and minerals. It is sweetened with a blend of aspartame and acesulfame potassium, unlike regular Diet Coke which only contains aspartame. Diet Coke Plus was introduced in April 2007 in select areas for test marketing.

Each 8-ounce serving of Diet Coke Plus provides 25% of the daily value for niacin and vitamins B6 and B12, and 15% for zinc and magnesium. [1]

Okay, so it's going to be a while before this hits the shevles in Canada. Actually, it may never even arrive here. But are there any American bloggers out there who've tried this? I'd love to know if the original taste of Diet Coke has been compromised as a result of adding vitamins. I, for one, am willing to give it a try. Getting vitamins in my pop would be a definite plus! But it also seems kind of wrong.

Lol, thanks for the heads up. I'll look for this on the supermarket shelves and get back to you! I'm not a pop-drinker, usually, but this looks really intriguing. Essential vitamins in COKE? Wow, what a marketing strategy. Hugs, e-Mom
