liz, kikiandkyle and secretagentbakes-- yes i ♥ me some diet coke--
let me chat with you a minute-first the back story--i got deathly sick once from pink ice--so now i am an honorary 'ice chute spotter'--if you check the ice chutes where you can self serve your fountain drinks--you will often find black mold--just saying--there's neglect there--alll it needs is to be properly soaked overnight like they should be soaking the fountain drink spouts--then in particular the diet coke spouts go bad first--so just saying--watch out for that--i go with cans & bottles for that reason--
sorry to rain on your addictions but just wanted y'all to be aware--don't hate me 'cause i'm an ice chute spotter ;) it's simply self defense--
and even when you follow up on your ice chutes--where you got a manager and freaking TOLD them -- and it's still icky the next week--wow--
so on the ones you cant' check-- the ones that are not self-serve...you never know....wonder what tim horton's ice chute looks like...but let me hasten to add that one of the most common side effects of aspartame is sore throat too...so...
