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.
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,
