it is rather annoying that i had to mail order this as i live about an hour from philadelphia but i have never seen this variety so i broke down & ordered. as with most diet sodas, it seems ok the first 2.4 seconds, then the awful fake sweetener taste kicks in and it is just vile. granted they do try to make it work here. yet it does not. a little creamy, lots of carbonation to tickle your mouth, yet the taste is no good, slightly bitter and then that terrible aftertaste comes in. i can’t even finish it. i feel bad but i just can’t deal with diet soda.
