I think sending threats over soda is very amusing, but I don't want to get arrested. What do you think of this reply? If anyone else is willing to threaten ninja attack, it's http://www.dietcoke.com/contactus.jsp. It's a scavenger hunt. If you find this soda and bring it my way I may exchange favors for it.

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for explaining the philosophy behind the removal of the best soda ever to bring a cheap imitation which is a sad attempt to duplicate an existing product, or to merge several flavors into one. I don't think people will like the change just so that you can prove that the coke executives are "innovating". Creating a salsa flavored ice cream is also innovative, but people would not want to replace chocolate with it. How about if you try an actual study. Put the same amount of Diet Vanilla Coke next to this new fandangled product and see which sells quicker. I'm placing my bets with Vanilla, all the way. Vanilla Ice Ice Baby.

Now, are you going to tell me where I can score some Vanilla Diet Coke are am I going to have to mop the floor with you people? Removal of a "solid contributor" a.k.a my favorite soda is a dishonor to the coca-cola way. Does New Coke mean nothing to you people? We the consumers do not want our caffiene messed with once we love it. It is just unamerican. Count this as one vote for Diet Vanilla Classic, or whatever cute cartoon, baby seal, athlete, or oscar winning celebrity you need to put on it so that the same good contents becomes "new" again.

Is there any left where you are? Can you give me the name of any distrubutor with some left so that I can get a stash to last out the drought? I'll pay major bucks. I bet this stuff now has auction value on ebay.

Don't make me send in the ninjas,

Lanette (a.k.a Cho Kim)

Please note it is also near impossible to find Diet Coke with Lemon, my personal favorite. Maybe if I write them they will respond with, "we will soon be releasing TapiocaChocolateOrange-aid Diet Coke".

We ladies go ballistic without our Diet Coke. We're hungry, we're mad, and we're fat (well some of us). Don't take away our caffiene.

They seem to now be pimping the Lime instead. Someone in their marketing department needs to be shot.

Maybe you should just tell them you need it to fight crime.

If this develops into a good exchange like the one I linked to, you gotta send it in to SA :)

You don't think that the threat to send ninjas will influence them?

Actually, I just wanted to post the link to the Something Awful article, because it reminded me of that (and it's really hilarious).

I wrote to them. I complained that I need a fix of Vanilla Diet Coke. And I threatened to kick them. Well, except for the kicking part.

I think you should send it EXACTLY as is. You might end up on a commercial when it comes back.

I sent it to them with a few silly modifications, such as "Are the lessons of New Coke forgotten so quickly?" Hahaha. I'm amused. I hope someone over there laughs at least.

I also added that this was a dishonor to the Coca-Cola family.
