Coke C2 review

cokec2bottle.jpgAmidst huge interest, CarbWire secured two bottles of Coke C2 for review. With the news that McDonald’s is trying it out in some locations, Coke C2 has the possibility of being huge. We did a comparison test between Coca-Cola Classic, Diet Coke and Coca-Cola C2.


* Color and consistency is identical to Coca-Cola Classic
* Nearly zero aftertaste
* If it wasn’t directly compared to the original (within seconds of each other), it would have been very hard to tell C2 from Classic Coke.
* Much better than Diet Coke


* Limited availability (at this time)
* Doesn’t taste exactly like Coca-Cola Classic
* Slightly less “kick” than regular Coke

Coke C2 isn’t targeted at current drinkers of Diet Coke. As most know, Diet Coke has no carbs, so Diet Coke drinkers wouldn’t be wise to jump ship. Coke C2 is marketed at Coca Cola Classic drinkers that don’t like the taste of Diet Coke. For that group, this is an easy way to cut “empty carbs”. It probably won’t conform to a low-carb diet, but anytime you can cut out sugar without compromising much taste, it’s a good thing.

Coke C2 does a great job at what it claims to do (cut sugar without cutting taste). We give it a thumbs up for that, but make sure this fits your diet before giving it a try (this might be a great way to get others to start reducing there carbs though!).
