Diet Coke Plus
It seems like every month Coke comes out with some new addition to their product line-up. First it was Coke Zero, then Diet Coke with Splenda, Coke Blak, Cherry Coke Zero, Diet Coke with Lime, and now it’s Diet Coke Plus.
Personally, I’m a fan of Coke Zero, but I know a ton of people who won’t drink anything except Diet Coke, even first thing in the morning, which I always thought was a little weird. But the newest Diet Coke appears to be perfectly fine to have first thing in the morning.
Both Coca-Cola and PepsiCo will soon release vitamin-fortified soft drinks – Diet Coke Plus and Tava.
Diet Coke Plus is scheduled to come out this spring, while PepsiCo’s Tava will be available in the fall.
This is in response to hurting sales of soft drinks – which may be in response to the growing obesity epidemic – soft drinks have recently been put in the spotlight as being unhealthy. (diet-blog.com)
What makes this Diet Coke “Plus” you ask?
According to the nutritional label, Diet Coke Plus includes 25% of the recommended daily allowance of niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 as well as 15% of the RDA for magnesium and zinc in each 12-ounce serving. It is sweetened with an aspartame/ACE-K blend that has become the industry norm for just about every diet drink nowadays. (CarbWire)
