Diet Coke has gotten an upgrade with four new exciting flavors and a new can design. We found these drinks at a 7-Eleven and tried 'em all out just for you!
ZESTY BLOOD ORANGE
The first thing we noticed when cracking open a can of Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke is that it smells a lot like a Crush Orange Soda. This cola has a pleasant, mellow orange candy flavor throughout and we also picked up a super slight Creamsicle aftertaste. We really liked this one!
This is the Arnold Palmer of the group because Ginger Lime Diet Coke tastes like half ginger ale mixed with half Diet Coke, all with a lime candy aftertaste. Of the four new flavors, this one is the most subtle and least exciting. We still enjoyed it though.
Feisty Cherry Diet Coke smells like a classic cherry cola right off the bat. The flavor is "feisty" indeed as each sip comes with a pleasant peppery bite that lingers in the back of the throat. While this new variety is probably the least creative, the boldness of the wild cherry flavor is surprising and thoroughly enjoyable.
Twisted Mango Diet Coke really smells like a juicy, sweet mango upon first crack. The smooth mango flavor is impressive and boldly shines through with each sip. It reminds us a lot of the mango flavor of Japanese fruit candy Hi-Chew. Of all the new varieties, this is the most unique and exciting.
Plain Diet Coke gets a revamped bullet can design as well, but the iconic flavor remains intact. It's the brilliant subtlety of cola flavor that still makes this our favorite version of DC. We predict classic Diet Coke will remain the top selling variety of this new repackaging.
