  • It's better than the others, no sugar and a lot less caffeine. Just do it in moderation. Like one a day or something.

  • id dont like diet pop bc the aspartame, google it is a really harmful chemical of course in moderation im sure it wont hurt but id switch to diet rite it is sweetend with splenda, o cal o sug o carbs and such idk how good splenda is but its suppoe to be natural and i know it is much better than aspartame which is also addictive

  • If you switch to the Diet Rite, the cherry flavor is great. Hardly no difference than the diet cherry pepsi (I know, I'm addicted to both and love them both!).

  • You should also limit you intake of it, as artificial sweeteners are in diet soda. As of right now, the Diet Rite would be a better choice as the artificial sweetener in that is Splenda, but you should still limit it. That also has no caffeine.

  • There is no soda out there that is healthy. Actually, it is said that the diet sodas are actually worse than regular flavored sodas due to the artificial sweetners.

  • The diet rite also has zero sodium too. In the world of sodas, it's the healthiest choice. And here, at Walmart, it's the same price as the store brand. Only at Walmart though. It's as expensive as everything else at the other stores. It's RC brand.
