Andrew Sullivan reports a little blogosphere battle over the merits of Coke Zero and Diet Coke
. The whole issue can be summarized in four words: all diet colas suck. All of them. Including Sully's cola of choice, Tab. Aspartame is vile stuff, and everything that's sweetened with sucralose (Diet Coke and Diet Rite among them) has way too much of the stuff. Diet Coke tastes more like Pepsi than Coke - that's just plain wrong. If the sucralose content were reduced by 30% or so it might be worth drinking.
