Cola Wars

We picked up a 12-pack of the new Pepsi One last week in South Dakota, and as much as I'm a Coke guy, I have to say the Splenda and acesulfame-potassium-sweetened Pepsi product is pretty good. It had the usual yucky Pepsi Cola aftertaste, with very little artificial sweetener taste. Overall, it was very much like "real" Pepsi, in fact.

Now, I can't wait for Coca-Cola Zero to come out in June. It's supposed to taste a lot like Coke Classic. They're also planning to roll out a Splenda-sweetened Diet Coke, but retaining DC's unique taste which has legions of fans (including my very own Snookums).

It looks like it will be a tasty summer 2005 for cola lovers.
