Coke Zero as a Party Favor

Updated on March 8, 2012

Why not substitute?

Its just my opinion but when you have a room full of people eating and drinking to their heart's delight and you happen to be diabetic, that must really be hard. As a one time fat guy I can tell you that for me its hard seeing someone eat a Pizza Steak without drooling over it and immediately wanting one of my own. That is why Coke Zero is a boon for diabetics everywhere. Make no mistake, I am certainly no doctor so there may be another reason diabetics shoud not drink soda but at least Coke Zero is sugarfree and low in sodium.

So once in a while, now and then it probably wouldn't hurt if you let go a little and enjoyed a good soda pop. It just so happens the soda is free of all that stuff that could kill you. For that blessed moment you are having the same thing as everyone else. It tastes just like the original product, just less syrupy and to me that is a good thing. Add to all that the lack of calories and you have a winner ladies and gentlemen.

How about those birthday parties where your going to have the kid's friends over? Do you really want to send them home amped up on sugary soda that many of their parents don't want them to have in the first place? Its a good way to make enemies of little robbies mom when you sent the little angel home that night literally freaking out!!!!

Give the little creeps Coke Zero. They'll never know what you just up and pulled! Whaaat?!? Don't even tell them and watch how they react. Notice how little Lela and Billy act as if they just drank soda and are tearing up the place? Now there is no question who has the bad kids in the neighborhood is there? Those two were just looking for an excuse to act out.

To sum it all up. There are many reasons why Coke Zero is a better option though overconsumption of anything is going to be bad for you. Remember that and you'll never have a problem. Peace.

      There is much debate about that, John. The fact is there probably wasn't a whole lot of testing done and only in the long run will we find out, much like evrything else out there.

      Is there any detrimental effects from the artificial sweetner?
