Vitamins, Minerals...and Diet Coke
I decided to try something new. We've all seen the vitamin-enhanced or caffeine-enhanced waters. Now, Coke gets into the act. They've come out with Diet Coke Plus. Plus what you ask? Plus vitamins and minerals.
They had the little 12 oz. bottles on special yesterday at the store, 2/$1 so I thought "what the heck, it's only 50 cents" and I bought one. How does it taste? Pretty much like Diet Coke. But here's the deal for 12 oz.: Zero calories, 40 mg of sodium, 25% of your daily requirement for niacin, Vitamin B6 and B12 and 15% of your daily requirement for magnesium and zinc. Not bad for something I would drink anyway.
Of course, the real kicker is going to be what they actually charge for it when it comes out in cans. Will it be the same as their other products (way overpriced) or will it be priced like other enhanced health drinks (way WAY overpriced)? If it's the same, I might just make it part of my purchases. I don't drink a lot of soda, generally one can per day or less. And I probably wouldn't drink this every day, since I am more of a lemon or lime with diet anything kind of person. But who knows? In any case, if you're a soda drinker anyway, this is a good way to get a boost of some essential vitamins and minerals.
