If a person is going to drink caffeine-free, diet soda......

why don't you just drink water? You've taken everything that's fun out of the soda, water would be just as good. What's the fun of caffeine-free, diet soda?

  • Because sometimes I enjoy the flavor of a soda, but don't want the caffeine and calories. It isn't, in any way, just like water.

  • I pour half grape juice and half diet 7up and make my own sparkling grape juice. That's the only time I use diet soda. But I know many people prefer the taste of diet Coke. The diet drinks don't taste like water.

  • That's what I've always wondered - my MIL is addicted to caffiene free diet Pepsi - blech! I even asked her one time what the point is - she said just for something different (she only drinks 1-2 cans a day but can't go a day without, she drinks tons of water too daily).
