    Pepsi Max versus Coke Zero

    I'm absolutely fanatical about my weight, so when I do indulge in Cola, it has to be sugar free. Which brings us to one of the great conundrums of modern times....Pepsi Max versus Coke Zero.

    For mine, it's Coke Zero all the way. Pepsi Max leaves somewhat of an after taste.

    You?

    Hate colas TBH, only ever drink the damn things with lots of Southern Comfort.

    Don't think I've ever knowingly had either of the above, though the Coke Zero sold like wildfire when it was first brought in a couple of years ago. Pepsi Max was notably less popular than Pespi FWIW.

    The biggest question on my mind has always been: how do they differ so wildly from Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi? One dissatisfied customer who spoke to me the day after buying both said they tasted exactly like the aforementioned.

    Not a huge fan of either, love my Coke and see both as cheap rip offs of the original. Pepsi Max between these two, though.

    Seriously, though; used to love Max but just went off it, and coke zero is too close to coke, so I couldn't drink it lol.

    Pepsi LIGHT is actually really good; a great improvement on the former Diet Pepsi.

    As a confirmed wide-load who doesn't drink tea or coffee I consume a heroic amout of diet cola.

    As preference I go for Diet Coke, been drinking it for so long I actually prefer to to Coke. Of the two options Coke Zero is superior. Actually not a bad approximation of full-fat Coke, but without that teeth-coated-with-sugar effect of the real thing.

    Adverts for both annoying tho: trying too hard to convince us heterosexual men can drink sugar-free fizzy drinks & still not be embarrassed about it.

    Coke Zero is disgusting! Pepsi Max is just about bareable. If you want to lose weight, I say ice cold Diet Coke is the way to go.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Both taste absolutely awful. Will only drink Coke or Diet Cherry Coke.

    Only tasted Pepsi Max of the two and it wasn't too bad. Interesting taste from the little I had so can't really say too much on it.
