Diet Coke has been a favorite for decades, in spite of those who say it's not nearly as healthy as the term "diet" suggests. That raises the question: how much do those who drink it really know about this diet soda? Here's the scoop on Diet Coke's history and popularity.
Coca-Cola took its sweet time entering the diet soda market, with a company history of the product revealing the idea for a sugar-free version of Coke had been in the works for two decades.
During the 1970s, health-conscious consumers began turning away from sugar. While this hurt sales of traditional soda, it was simultaneously creating a whole new market for sodas that could offer all the flavor and none of the sugar. Coca-Cola planning manager Jack Carew, who was tapped to develop a sugar-free version of Coke, explained:
"We needed a big idea to come out of one of the toughest decades we'd ever seen."
While the development of Diet Coke was a key priority for Coca-Cola, very few people within the company actually knew about the top-secret endeavor. Carew's colleague Jerry Bell added,
"It was an entrepreneurial cloak-and-dagger operation in the purest sense."
Market forces drove the development of Diet Coke as the company attempted to reach a "core demographic" identified as baby boomers who, as they became older and heavier, were ready to try a Coke alternative that wouldn't contribute as much to their expanding waistlines.

  • 😂 I know this is a content farm. But the main difference between Coke Zero and Diet Coke is NOT the preservative. It's the sweetener. Most Zero sodas have Acesulfame potassium. Most Diets have aspartame.

  • When I found out I had diabetes around five years ago, I switched to diet sodas and lost fifty pounds. Lately I'm grabbing Diet Rite (the original diet soda) because they seem to be the last ones still using sucralose. If only the others would use that or erythritol like the Monster drinks. If only we had caffeine-free White Monster, heh heh.

  • They need to remove Sodium/Potassium Benzoate from all products in the US. Several Countries have outlawed the chemical, so why is it ok for the US? On its own, it is “dreamed safe”, but in a lot of products with other chemicals it is a dangerous chemical.

    • @Alex Coppola thanks for the info bub. COKE SUCKS!!!! and I call coke products coke, diet coke, flavored coke, flavored diet coke. I don't drink bottled water so that scratches that product. THE ONLY product I drink by them and it is rarely is Fresca. I am not a soda drinker. Just water, black tea and pineapple juice. When people say coke, they most likely are referring to coca cola. Fresca is not a cola.

  • Diet sodas of any kind are poisonous. Period! In fact, anything with Artificial Sweeteners are poisonous. I drank Diet Coke & Coke Zero (my favorite) for decades... Finally, decided to quit after reading about aspartame... I was ill for more than 2 weeks ... No doubt a detox of sorts. My body rebelled; it wanted it's poison. No different than a heroin addict, my body grew accustomed to the poison quite quickly and fought to give it up. Furthermore, aspartame actually results in weight gain not weight loss (I encourage all to research through WebMD or, better Mayo(sp?) Clinic). Free of aspartame for 2+ years, I feel so much better. I just do not indulge, on purpose, in anything with artificial sweeteners. PERIOD!
