  • yes ,but much ,much less than a few years ago.About 6 or 7 years ago I replaced most of my DDPs with plain sparkling water.I add lime slices or buy bags of frozen mixed fruit when it is hot or warm here...9 to 10 months of the year...and add a few pieces to my water .

    Sometimes though nothing beats a ice cold over ice DDP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • No. The artificial sweeteners are worse for you than sugar (unless you are drinking a 6 pack a day.)

    I rarely drink soda anymore. Occasionally I will have a Sprite. I haven't been able to drink Coke since my glucose test with DS1 15 years ago.

  • Nope. I prefer not to embalm myself while still living. That aspartame is nasty stuff.
    I truly believe my husband has a diet coke addiction. He has to have one in his hands at all times.

  • No way - if I'm going to drink an occasional pop, it's going to have real sugar (or hfcs lol). No fake crap for me.

  • I used to be a 6 pack a day Diet Pepsi fiend. Since January 1st I've had at most one a day, and most days, none. When I did my big Costco run for the month, I bought only one 36 pack of soda, and 4 35 pack cases of water. I don't keep the soda cold, so for me to want one I have to actually think about it, stick in the freezer, and wait 20 minutes to make sure I REALLY want it instead of the water. Usually the thirst wins out and I just grab a bottle of water instead.

  • I won't touch anything with artificial sweeteners in it.
