Today's Review: Diet Coke With Cherry

Oh yes, I'm still on the diet drinks, the only variable pleasure I get in my diet. I hadn't seen this flavour for a little while though, and I quite enjoyed it when I had it before, so I'm glad it's back in my fridge. I'm a massive fan of regular Cherry Coke, which overtook my previous favourites of Fanta Fruit Twist and Dr. Pepper. So it stands to reason that I'd like Diet Cherry Coke, right? Well, it's good, but it's not perfect.

Yes, it does have that distinct diety taste that you'd expect, but the flavour of the cherry very much overwhelms it. The only problem is it isn't the regular cherry taste you're used to. Not that it's bad, it's just a little bit artificial and intense, it reminds me of the cherry you'd find on top of a Bakewell tart. Still, if you're looking for a change from regular old Diet Coke, this cherry flavour adds a nice little kick that I enjoy, even if it is a little too much sometimes.

My rating: 4/5


  1. Have you tried Coke Zero Cherry? They have just started selling it in my local Asda and I think it's much nicer than the Diet version.

  2. Oooh, I'll have to keep an eye out for that. Cherry is my favourite drink flavouring.
