    They'll soon release a diet coke filled with vitamins... I guess I'll buy some Coca-Cola stocks because the usual 250lbs woman yoyo-dieting for years on a low-fat diet will jump on this. Another great trick for them to feel like they've changed something without doing anything. They won't have to eat veggies, they'll get vitamins in their Coke (and maintain their taste for sweet things) ! The important thing is to take the guilt-away...

    If it were sweetened with slenda and not aspartame I'd probably drink it.

    There is no way that the general population will want to touch that. Healthy doesn't sell very well, especially dealing with soda. But this is nothing new, soda companies come up with spin offs of thier main product every year. I think their last C2 "healthy" fell on its face within six months and right now its Coke Zero.

    The majority of their target audience would rather spend money on the real deal or a bottle of juice that costs 7 dollars at near by trendy market.

    stuff like vitamin water where they "load" it with vitamins usually has minimal amounts of important things anyways. It's just a gimmick to sell beverages, this is no different.
