Some of you who know me may be tempted to ask, “But Matt, arent you the kid who drank 6 liters of diet pepsi in one night? Why is this most recent manifestation of your diet soda addiction noteworthy?” And I would reply with something to the effect of, “Diet Coke with Raspberry is no ordinary diet soda, so this is completely different.”
You see, Coca Cola is piloting their raspberry flavor line in New Zealand right now. It is going to replace Coke with Lime. I know this because I researched it on the internet, desperately seeking news that it would be available anywhere outside of New Zealand. I didn’t find any, which was tragic, because only 3 days away from the Kiwis it has become evident that this is a craving that mere Diet Coke, Pepsi Max, or Regal Diet Cola can never satisfy. I hope my withdrawal is quick and painless.
