Diet Orange Crush: It's what's for breakfast


A wonderful discovery.

The diet iteration is — to me — indistinguishable from the sugary original.


What I do: pop open a few cans at a time, then let them chill overnight while losing their fizziness.

Result: perfect Orange Hi-C-like accompaniment for my morning coffee.

Bonus: because it's got no caffeine — unlike Diet Sunkist Orange — you can enjoy a can or two with your chips or whatever while watching TV at night without worrying about it keeping you up till all hours.

Bonus: no pulp!

Oooooh, yes, that Diet Sunkist Orange not only DOES have a tremendous caffeine kick, but also tastes good! Made myself give it up. Too much kick, like the Man said.

A word from our sponsor: oftimes useful comments — like that of mike on this post — merit a personal response as opposed to my commenting here; I can't do that without an email address. Just saying....

On another note: you might be wondering why my comments appear to be from bookifjoe as opposed to bookofjoe; an explanation would take far too long, and in addition get me all riled up about my frustration using Typepad for 14 years....

Wait! Doesn't fake sugar trick your body into thinking it IS sugar so you get an insulin response? And won't this will eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes?
