The secret to keeping this beverage sweet-tasting, however, comes further on down, in the form of aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose.
So, really, all that's changed with this new beverage is that 6 teaspoons of sugar have been substituted with three sweeteners that are even worse.

Personally, I've switched to Mexican Coke (now being imported into some areas of the US), which is made with sugar. Period. No corn syrup, no aspartame, no nuthin except pure natural sugar.
