C2 is Coca-Cola's latest soft drink that has half the carbs and calories of their regular Coke.
Has anyone tried this yet? What do you think?
I don't drink diet soda and rarely drink anything other than caffeine free Coke when I do drink soda, but I thought this was okay. It left a slight after taste for me, but it wasn't as bad as most diet sodas.
Pepsi is also coming out with their own version of low carb soda called Pepsi Edge. I won't be trying that one, so someone else will have to give us a review.
I tried the new CD coke, it is just like regular coke except it doesn't taste as sweet. My husband and I don't like it.
I didn't like it. I thought it had a little after taste. It has aspartame in it.
per 8 oz
12 total carbs
Emily, I agree it does leave a Gross after taste in your mouth I think that is exactly why I don't like it.
So...this is the new NEW Coke, right? LOL
My husband and I both thought it was gross--I'm a regular Pespsi drinker and he's a Diet Coke addict. After tasting C2, I decided that I actually prefer the taste of Diet Coke!
We decided that their "secret formula" was mixing Diet and regular together--that's what my mom used to do when she was trying to wean herself off regular.
My dh loves coke, but he hates C2 - it does leave a nasty aftertaste.
I have a real problem with all these products jumping on the low carb bandwagon to make a buck. One of my doctors told me that the big problem with a strict low carb diet is it can hurt those with high cholesterol or even undetected clogged arteries.
I think I'll just stick with eating smart....
And they have no business messing with my Coca-Cola!
I was told you needed a certain amount of carbs & that on the low carb diet you don't get them. I agree with messing with the coke Kay. I can't drink any other kind of pop!
Kay, I'm with you! I saw an ad for low-carb cereal last night (think it's Special K) and I just snorted. Puh-leeze! Call me suspicious, but I think this is just another diet craze, and it too will pass. Moderation, moderation, moderation...that's what I've been drilling into myself and my daughters. (BTW, older dd is 14 and you'd be shocked at how many of her perfectly healthy friends think they're fat and are on crazy diets! It's very troubling to me)
