Diet Sodas - simply a place for diet soda drinkers
My favorite diet soda

The absolute best diet soda I ever had was Canfield's Diet Chocolate Fudge Soda. It tasted just like the chocolate sodas I used to get at the soda fountain back when I was a kid. (Minus the ice cream, of course. *g*)

I haven't been able to find Canfield's in years, though. Pity. It was never on sale, of course, but it was worth paying full price for.

We don't seem to have much variety in diet sodas out here in Denver, for some reason. But the ones I like the best are: Diet Coke with Splenda, Diet Dr. Pepper, and Diet Cherry-Vanilla Dr. Pepper. We don't seem to have any fruit flavors except for the ubiquitous lemon-lime, and of course Fresca.

OOoo wait, I forgot -- RC recently started putting out some fruit flavors -- white grape, orange, and one other that I've forgotten. They are pretty tasty, too. But they go down so smooth that I find myself drinking twice as many as a diet cola. So, I pretty much stick to colas.

I don't mind the Nutrasweet taste, and I've never noticed the side-effects that other people complain about (i.e. headaches, etc). But I do prefer Splenda to Nutrasweet, when I have a choice. (Though by this time I've drunk so much Nutrasweet over the years that when all the really nasty long-term side-effects start showing up, no doubt I'll be the textbook case. *g*)

I just realized that this community (my own silly community) isn't even on my friends list, or at least the default view, so I'm just seeing your post now.

I've had the Canfield's soda once a long time ago, and I recall that it was quite good. I have no idea where to buy it around here.

I had heard that Diet Coke was canning (haha) their Splenda blend, but I still see it, so I may have been misinformed. I'm about to write about plain old Diet Dr. Pepper, which I bought this morning and is my favorite, overall, I think.

RC also has kiwi-strawberry and a tangerine flavor (maybe that's the orange one you were thinking of).

I remember the chocolate soda from about twenty years ago when I was a wee tiny kid. (I was raised on diet soda.) Yummy! The RC/Diet Rite also comes in raspberry and peach, which are both good, but they are stocked somewhat erratically at my local stores.
