Diet Coke

 

I was recently asked to finish this question:

Diet Coke is best enjoyed out of _____________.

I had to think long and hard about this one then realized I like any soda out of a bottle.  Glass bottles are my preference but with those becoming few and far between I’ll take plastic.

I don’t like 2 liter bottles as they go flat on me too fast, I need the fizz and carbonation to really enjoy a good Diet Coke.

I won’t lie to you I use to be a Pepsiholic.  I mean a true blue, don’t give me anything else but Pepsi fanatic.  I’d down between 3-5, 20 oz bottles a day and think nothing of it and then my life was forever changed with these words “Welcome to the world of diabetes“.

I was forced to give up my sugar laden Pepsi cold turkey and I won’t lie about it, I felt my life had ended.  I wouldn’t touch diet soda for anything and cried when I walked down the soda aisle in the grocery store or saw those commercials where people were enjoying ice cold drinks.

That all ended a few months later when I was making one of my husband’s favorite dishes, Coke Chicken, and had a large bottle of Diet Coke to use in the recipe.  Not wanting to waste what was left I decided to give it a try and I can honestly say, I was surprised.  I LIKED IT!!!  Diet Coke tasted more like my favorite sugar laden drink and I was in heaven.

Not wanting to get addicted to any soda again I started buying caffeine free Diet Coke but that didn’t work.  I’m not getting panicky when I’m on my last bottle and I can function when I run out but there are times when a good ice cold Diet Coke is a must.  My favorite Mexican Dinner comes to mind, or pizza, then there’s a good roast with a side of Diet Coke.  We can’t forget movie night with a bowl of homemade popcorn and an ice cold Diet Coke.  Of course in the morning with pancakes and bacon or lunch time with a ham and cheese sandwich.  Snack time with pretzels or my comfort food, potato chips and cream cheese.

Now it’s your turn.  How would you finish this sentence?
