Diet Coke

On July 8th, 1982 Diet Coke was announced, by the company Coca-Cola, as a new soft drink. It is also called Coca-Cola light in some countries. The “Diet” or “Light” means there is no sugar. Aspartame was used as sweetener to replace the sugar. In addition, the Coca-Cola company was at first debating on even selling this drink under the Coca-Cola name since it could affect their reputation. Their revivals, Pepsi, introduced Diet Pepsi and seemed to go well, so they did the same.
