Honestly neither but if I had no choice in the matter, I would pick the regular soda. I never understood the rage behind diet sodas, it makes you consume more calories, under the assumption that it give a person a free pass to pig out. Besides that fake sugar messes up my digestion. But I stay away from both drinks. Both are horrible for my body and skin.

Some soda's I like in diet and some in full-cal. Really, it just depends on the drink. I don't drink much soda, but, I am drinking one now and it is indeed diet.

I don't really drink either. Half because I find it scary and unhealthy and half because I honestly don't like the taste. But if I had to choose, I'd drink regular, for the taste.

Diet coke was always my favorite. Regular is gross, to be honest. Although now I can proudly say I RARELY drink soda.

I get terrible migraines from anything with aspartame, so I only drink regular soda. I don't drink very much of it, though. I prefer seltzers, because I love the bubbles! "Diet" soda is linked to so many diet-harming things that I wouldn't drink it even if I could.

I have never heard of this "soda" you speak of. =) But my preferred pop preference is diet. I find regular to taste really syrupy.

Regular... Diet soda has a funky aftertaste, it's disgusting. Actually, diet anything has that funky aftertaste. Yuck!

Diet soda, for sure. I've always thought regular soda was too syrupy and sweet. I kind of like the slight bitterness of the diet variety.

Neither, but since I only had 2 options, I picked regular. I hate diet.

@GlowingMoon, same. I can't have that much sugar in one drink. I'm not a big soda girl though.

Diet. Regular soda makes me hyper.

Diet soda... even though I can really taste the artificial sweetener which is kind of gross sometimes. It's better than the sugar packed regular sodas that rot your teeth and add pounds.

We grew up without pop so I never really got into liking it. Going to be hard keeping the trend going with my daughter since hubby drinks it everyday.

Aspertame gives me a headache and makes me feel awful. So on rare soda occasions, I treat myself to a Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. Best soda, though, is Coca-Cola from Mexico, made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup :)

I very rarely drink soda, maybe once every 6 months. Having said that I go with the regular.

I haven't had soda since march of last year. When I used to drink soda I usually had diet but I liked regular better.

How about none at all. Both versions of soda are horrible to your system. If a "soda" can dissolve a T-bone, remove grime not only from your toilet but a car/truck engine... I wonder why one would ingest such a formula and not question what the health consequences will be.
