Diet drinks... perhaps the word diet should be removed from them... most people I know, including myself, drink them because they are sugar-free, we could not care less that they are reduced in caloric content.

Sugar, you see, is an insidious poison that has been slowly killing humanity since it's inception... plus, when you drink a regular soda it leaves a filmy aftertaste in your mouth   BLECH!

JP...sorry, dude, but you're wrong.  They are sucrose-free, but not sugar free.  Aspartame is a suger, albiet synthetic, and much, much sweeter than sucrose or dextrose.  There are a few other 'sugars' whose names elude me, but they are all poly-saccharides, or long-stringed sugars.

Wow....who ever thunk that my chemistry class in college would ever pay off...
