It's a pity Diet Coke with Splenda still tastes like Diet Coke, and not like Coke. I mean, the fact that Splenda is an isomer of sucrose and has no known negative effects for anybody (as opposed to that vile poison, Aspartame [aka Nutrasweet]) is cool... and if Diet Coke with Splenda tasted like regular Coke, I'd drink it. I wonder if they deliberately made it taste like normal Diet Coke because they want to appeal to existing Diet Coke drinkers. Pretty lame really, if so.

On the up-side, it doesn't have a hideously bitter aftertaste and it doesn't give people migraines and worse ... but on the downside, I do still have the taste of it (albeit not too objectionable) 20 minutes later. Oh well, it was worth a try.
