Just in the past week I have traded in my caffeine delivery system: coffee for Diet Coke.
Diet Coke Pros:
- Fewer calories since I don't drink black coffee
- No coffee breath
- Doesn't lose its ideal drinking temperature as quickly
Diet Coke Cons:
- Artificial sweeteners that can cause cancer
- The burping
- People exclaiming "Ew! Diet Coke, seriously?"
- No Fair Trade Organic Single Origin Shade Grown options
Coffee, I may be back, but for now I'm yours, Diet Coke.
p.s. Why is this a Peeve? Because I didn't want to write about the Boston Marathon bombings.
