Coke Zero Sugar replacing Coke Zero???

The Coca Cola bottling company recently introduced a new product called Coke Zero Sugar.  Some have fallen in love with Coke Zero and are concerned that the taste will change with the new name.  Looks like they may be the exact same ingredients in both and most likely just a play on marketing?  Hometown Vending has offered Coke Zero, in both cans and bottles, for several years now and will certainly carry the new Coke Zero Sugar.  However, we are wondering what the differences really are?  Both are similar regarding ingredients and hope that our customers will transition to the new drink.  We have some really “hard-core” Zero drinkers at some of vending machines and Hometown Fresh Micro Markets.

The Huffington Post has a great article on the differences or similarities of all three diet Coke offerings.  In fact, Huffington Post states the following…..  “This upset got us thinking: what is the actual difference between Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Coke Zero Sugar? If you look at the ingredients between the three, they aren’t actually all that different. And, in fact, Coke Zero and Coke Zero Sugar have exactly the same ingredient list.”

Here’s the list of ingredients in Diet Coke

Carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, citric acid, caffeine.

Here’s the list of ingredients in Coke Zero:

Carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, aspartame, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, potassium citrate, acesulfame potassium, caffeine.

And here’s the list of ingredients in Coke Zero Sugar:

Carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, aspartame, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, potassium citrate, acesulfame potassium, caffeine.

The Coca Cola company occasionally makes changes to ingredients, tastes, etc.  Regular Coke Zero is a “niche” product and therefore the faithful are concerned that Coke will change the taste.  The verdict is still out and I am certain our customers at Hometown Vending are concerned about the coming changes.
