Is it diet pop or diet soda? In this part of the country, I hear “Diet pop” more than I hear “Diet soda.” In other parts of the country, I hear diet soda more often. Pop and/or soda mean the same thing—or so I’m guessing.
I haven’t had a regular pop or soda in years. Since I’m diabetic, I should probably keep it that way.
Do I drink too much of this diet stuff? Probably. Having admitted that, I don’t see it changing. I know it’s not good for me, but I like the taste of it.
Over at The Dollar Tree Store here in Covington, Kentucky, I can get a 2.5 liter bottle of Diet Shasta Cola for a buck—that is if they have it in stock. That diet cola flies off the shelves here. It’s a pretty good bargain.
It’s a much better deal than what they have down at the corner of happy and healthy—the Walgreens here in Covington. A 1.25 liter of Diet Coke costs 99 cents. In my view, that’s a little high, but that’s typical Walgreens.
When I’m in Kroger, I’ll get the Big K brand. I don’t remember the price, but I remember it being fairly reasonable.
Diet Shasta, Diet Coke, Diet Big K—they all taste a little different from one another. I think I prefer the taste of Diet Shasta or maybe I just prefer the price.
By the way, I usually say “Diet pop” instead of “Diet soda.”
