Okay, so I have a few vices and most of 'em are legal. But my number one vice is Diet Coke. And I got up waaay early this morning and I was feelnig the late-afternoon/pre-gym funk, and so I just went out to fetch myself a DC and I bought the new version, the one that's sweetened with Splenda, because Splenda is supposed to be better than aspartame yada yada yada. And, holy fuck!!!! Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda doesn't taste like Diet Coke at all! It tastes like REAL COCA COCA CLASSIC! Ewwwwwww! No No No No! I loves me my old version of Diet Coke, with its crisp-slightly-tangy flavor of awesomeness. Coca Cola Classic makes my teeth itch. And this Splenda-sweetened Diet Coke is NOT the Diet Coke that I know and love. NO NO NO NO NO! It's icky teeth-itch-inducing Coca Cola Classic masquerading as a calorie-free caffeinated treat!!!!
I feel so betrayed. I haven't been so misled since my parents lied to me about something-or-other when I was a kid. Humph.
