And then there are those of us who actually prefer Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke... I can taste the aspartame (which I've been told is made from grapefruit rind??) in the Diet Coke, but not in the Diet Pepsi <shrug>.  I have to drink only diet beverages because of high triglycerides, and am allowed only one caffienated cola (of any sort) per day because of Osteoporosis, and that also includes any of the dark colas, decaffeinated or not.  So, I mostly do non-cola diet drinks.  I guess I am one of the few people who is not sensitive or allergic to any of the artificial sweeteners... but you don't want to be around me when I over-indulge in some of the artificially sweetend candies... I don't smell so good and make that smell rather loudly. <sheepish grin>

Yep, I can tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi too. Pepsi always 
tastes a little...flat...to me. 

An ex of mine was also amazed that I could tell the difference in taste 
between caffeinated diet coke and caffeine free diet coke.
