- Coke: With this new "Coke Blak." Coke and COFFEE?
- Pepsi: Pepsi Half. A rush job, whereas Coke C2 actually looked at balancing the sweetners with some sugar, Pepsi hung its hat on one artificial sweetner (with some sugar). Taste definitely suffered.
- Dr Pepper: Cherry-Vanilla Dr. Pepper. New Clothes for an old failure.
- RC Cola: Diet Right gains eighteen different flavors. All because it outlasted saccharine.
I'm sure there's others...
It's Xmas; in time I'll start posting more "issue-oriented" items.
