Today isn't merely Friday, it's also the birthdate of Diet Coke! It's said that on July 9, 1982, The Coca-Cola Company introduced the world to the sweet (but sugar-free) beverage, which became a fast favorite — and today it's 28 years old. To celebrate, we're going to break open a Diet Coke (OK; I admit to doing this regularly!), and we're tossing around fun facts about the beverage. Ready to partake? Let's get cracking on a can of DC, and this quiz!

I don't drink any soda, especially coca cola. As an adolescent, I drank 6 cans of Coke a day. I think I OD'd and can no longer stand it.

I'm a Diet Coke addict as well, haha. I can't drink generic diet cola and even Diet Pepsi isn't quite the same. My mom always drank it and I've been a DC freak since the age of about 13 or so. I wish we had the raspberry Diet Coke here...that would be awesome! I did get to try Diet Lime Coke in Central America before it came out in the States. I love it!

I am a Diet Coke addict. I have been since I was 12 years old; the year it came out. I started drinking it as part of the diet I was on (Cuz it was WAY better than Tab) but now I just love the taste. I know I should cut back at the very least but I just love the stuff.

To answer your ? - NO! I don't do diet, lowfat, low calorie, sugarfree, light, lite or 50% less of any foods and/or drinks, they all taste fake and aspartame tastes super nasty to me. As for coke, a drink a day keeps the doctor away :) Buy Torani syrups and you can have any flavor coke you want.

3/10 With how much I LOVE it, you'd think I'd do better. But maybe it's because I'm trying not to drink it! Yeah...we'll go with that. =)

You can also get Diet Raspberry Coke if you have access to one of the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines here in the US.

4/10 - I have a taste for diet Pepsi way more than Coke, though diet Coke will do in a pinch! I went to the Coca Cola museum in Atlanta before. It was pretty cool!
