Coca Cola is about to introduce a new product: Coke Zero. Coke Zero will join Sprite Zero on the grocery shelf, but this will be an entirely new product.
Sprite Zero is just Diet Sprite renamed. Coke Zero will not replace Diet Coke. Coke Zero will be aimed at a younger market than is Diet Coke. In addition, Coke Zero will be sweetened with a blend of aspartame and acesulfame potassium.
For those of us who “live” on Diet Coke- worry not. Coke says Diet Coke will remain on the grocer’s shelf. In fact, Coke sees Coke Zero as targeting an entirely different crowd than does Diet Coke.
Meanwhile back in the Diet Coke department: Coke will introduce a new version of Diet Coke that will be sweetened with sucralose.
