    I for one have tried and it was horrible. Not liking the taste at all. Doable if I wanted to drink for reminiscence, but I drink for pleasure. Your thoughts? What are your favorite or disliked sugar free drinks?

    For me
    For me, it depends on my mood. BTW, does the coffee counts?

    I got used to them since my best friend growing up was diabetic and only had that sort of thing at his house.

    Sprite Zero doesn't have the same taste, so I'll drink it, but it doesn't hit as well. Now, for a soda like Pepsi I don't care as much. Diet is fine and so is regular.

    I can't handle Coke though so I don't know how the diet tastes. Probably better.

    I drink plain water without a problem. But add any artificial sweetener and I am in trouble. I react to all of them. Even agave and stevia. (But I am fine with glucose and fructose.) As I would rather not have a painful, nasty day, I choose pure sugar all the way!

    Green tea is great as it is. It tastes weird with sugar.

    IMO, if people want sugar with their tea, they should stick with black or red tea.
    For soda, I don't drink them enough to hate the sugar free drinks. For me they just taste the same and probably have the same problem as the sugared drink.

    I was recently diagnosed diabetic so now the only way I can enjoy Dr. Pepper is in diet form which is at least better than Diet Mtn Dew. which I'll add should be thrown into the sun for how bad it tastes

    Oolong tea is quite nice. No sugar in my coffee either.

    I'm a sweet tooth, I'd probably try drinking it first just to see what the taste is like then handing it off to a friend. Coffee frappe is only coffee frappe when it's topped off with ridiculous amounts of cream, sugar and ice:blobokhand:

    Some sugar free drinks are actually even unhealthier than the regular ones

    I'd drink it. Sugar-free bottled tea are quite delicious tho, and sometimes in hot days the usual sweetened tea is just too icky for me to drink.

    I can drink any drink except for Root Beer/Cream Soda.

    When you almost die from dehydration and starvation then you learn to drink almost anything, except Root Beer/Cream Soda I rather die before I drink that trash :blob_catflip::blob_catflip::blob_catflip:

    There are some sugar free product that is acceptable without any sweetened flavor. Coffee, tea, multi grain milk, soy milk, etc.

    I'm still hoping Coca-Cola comes out with a good sugar free coke, I drink their caffeine free quite frequently but I'd like a sugar/caffeine free coke that's actually palatable.
