Hong Kong Trends: Coke Light

In addition to “Diet”, “Zero”, and “Classic”, Coke has another label, “Light, with Lemon”. While this isn’t the wildest thing I saw in Hong Kong, I couldn’t help but to ask “what’s the difference”? My cousins couldn’t really answer, so I asked Google…

“Coca-Cola Zero provides real Coca-Cola taste for variety-seeking consumers. Coca-Cola Zero is sweetened with a blend of low-calorie sweeteners, while Diet Coke is sweetened with aspartame. As for Coke/Coca-Cola light, in certain countries, the term “diet” is not used to describe low-calorie foods and beverages. In these countries, we offer Coke/Coca-Cola light. The sweetener blend used for Coke/Coca-Cola light is formulated for each country based on consumer preference.” – Coke

I didn’t try it. I prefer Coca-cola classic. No diet stuff for me.

  1. diet soda does not taste good. at least i've never had any that taste good. when it comes down to it what's the point in drinking something with fewer calories, but is nasty . might as well drink water or nothing at all.
