If you drink regular Coke or Pepsi, does the non-caffeinated type taste different?

I'm considering caffeine free Coca-Cola but worry it might be too different from the regular one.

  • It is different but not gross different just a "oh I'm not used this different". You will always get a different taste with different ingredients. You should get used to it though.

  • its your imagination,caffeine doesn't have a taste,and its made exactly the same way sans caffeine. I think its like the m&m thing,you think you taste colors!

  • I can assure you that there is a difference.  There is also a difference in taste in different countries.  When I lived in the UK, I drank Pepsi because Coke was much sweeter, but now that I'm living in Canada, I drink Coke because Pepsi is much sweeter.

  • Slightly - same as diet tastes different but similar. Caffiene free isn't as big as a difference though.
