Diet Coke

Postby awitte » Thu Jul 04, 2019 4:46 pm

Hi, new here. Does anyone know if there is anywhere in the city of Lima, one can get a Diet Coke. Not a Coke Zero. A Diet Coke.

I’m going through withdrawals. Inca Cola can’t cut it.

Sincerely,

Addicted.

If it were to be found here, it would have to be imported... and that wouldn't make very much economic sense, given the popularity of Coca Cola Zero.

But now Coke Zero is being replaced.
What's on the shelves might be the last of it.
I'm a Pepsi man myself.

Interesting, but they specify the USA in the article, which doesn't necessarily mean Peru.

"On Wednesday, Coca-Cola announced plans to stop selling Coke Zero in the US in August, replacing it with a beverage with a different recipe, design, and name: Coke Zero Sugar."

Anyone consuming diet soda (of any brand) is taking a health risk.
These comments are backed by many unbiased articles online.
Rather than list any here, do your own research with the web sites you prefer.
Sorry to be the provider of bad news...

So they're gonna keep making Coke Zero specifically for Peru?
Interesting.
