Let me start with a little reminiscence. When I was a little kid, I would start most every day with a breakfast of Cheerios cereal in milk, along with a glass of orange juice. My still developing mind often thought, “Cheerios taste great. OJ tastes great. Cheerios and OJ would be awesome!” So once or twice I poured my juice into the cereal, and discovered that Cheerios and orange juice in the same bowl tastes awful.
My childhood stupidity came to mind recently when a friend shared a news story about, well, this:
I used to be a habitual Diet Coke drinker. I have pretty much given it up, though I will still admit that there is nothing quite like the first sip or two out of a cold can of Diet Coke.
I don’t see how anyone could think that a drink that starts off tasting like Coke and has a coffee finish would be a good thing. It just sounds…… well, like Cheerios and OJ.
