I have a thing against diet soda. I just think it’s creepy. And it tastes terrible. (Ok, I gather it’s an acquired taste, but not one I’ve ever taken the trouble to acquire.) The other day a can of soda took me by surprise–I thought it was regular, but some of the sugar was replaced with sucralose.
So I wrote about stealth sweeteners for The Last Word on Nothing.
I don’t drink much soda, but I really like it. Every time I go to Los Angeles I try to go on a pilgrimage to Galco’s Soda Pop Stop. They have a wonderful selection of sodas, with odd flavors like cucumber and espresso and chocolate; I bring home a dozen or two every time, and they last me a year or more. In fact, I’m just about out. I guess I’m due for another trip to LA….
