    My wife & I saw it advertised on TV and as luck (bad luck!) would have it I saw it in the store late last night.
    Coincidentally I was just talking about nobody ever quite nailing the blueberry flavor in a soda. Cherry, orange & strawberry are common of course, but never blueberry.

    And sure enough, nobody has mastered it yet. :brood: Blueberry acai diet coke is horrible. It has not even a smidgeon of blueberry flavor. Two thumbs down on this train wreck of a beverage! :jayzus:

    well if that whiskey tastes like horse piss you can't say you didn't see that coming - it's right there on the antifreeze jug.

    Coca-Cola was running tests with consumers here in Los Angeles early last year, and I tried some of the Orange Diet Coke. It isn't terrible. It's better than Diet Coke, for sure.

    Blueberry/acai Diet Coke? That doesn't sound appealing at all...

    Maybe it's the acai. I don't know what "acai" is, but it sounds like something you should be shouting in karate class!

    They have orange/vanilla coke in one of my local stores but not the diet version - when they do I'll try it out.

    A fatter blueberry that grows on a palm tree instead of a bush.
