Hi and thank you for reading, this is my first my take and it's about light sodas.
So let's be straight. Everybody knows this, but most of the people don't have enough character to say this. Light sodas don't taste good. For example Coca-Cola is advertising that their no sugar version tastes as good as the original, but they are not even from the same planet. I bought a bottle of Sprite which had -30% sugar and calories, I couldn't even drink it. Sugar tastes sweet and really makes the soda what it is.
The human race has done some great things. For example, we've invented the television and landed on the moon. Yet still we have to face the reality, we are not ready for sugarless sodas, because we can't replace sugar. It was a good try, but our technology isn't ready for it yet.
Then I have a special message, especially for the overweight people out there. If you go to McDonalds and order the Double Quarter Pounder meal with extra fries, a couple donuts and a milkshake, you will gain weight even if you order that diet coke with no calories. Your struggles with that bad tasting diet coke will go to waste! Take rather the real coke and enjoy your life (or eating healthier would be even better).
