I love everything about Diet Coke. It makes me feel happy. It makes my mouth dance when I drink it, and it fills me with joy!
Enter Diet CokeIt feels like Diet Coke has been around forever. But I have clear memories of drinking Diet Rite and Tab while growing up… So when did Diet Coke hit the scene? August 9, 1982. Which explains two years of messing around with substandard stand-ins. Thank you, Wikipedia. I did not know until just now, that Tab is also a Coca-Cola brand! Whaaat!
The other thing I realized while reading that Wikipedia entry is that Diet Pepsi has been around since 1963, but I can’t remember a single Diet Pepsi in our house growing up. What can I say? Mom must have known how deep my love for Diet Coke would run.
Because I know what's coming
Phil Graham is the bomb. Enjoy!
A special day
Did you know that today, November 19th, is #CarbonatedBeverageWithCaffeineDay? I know, it sounds silly. But I couldn’t let it pass without sharing something about Diet Coke. It’s appropriate, right? So with that, I’d like to know, do you call it “Soda” or “Pop?” And are you in the Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi camp?
