Coke Zero Is Getting The Boot And Twitter Is Very Emotional

If you’re a Coca-Cola fan you’ll know we’re pretty hardcore about our drink choices. We were all relieved when Coke Zero came out – a low-calorie option that didn’t taste like Diet Coke (it’s possible I am biased). However, Coca-Cola recently announced that they were nixing the drink as we know it and Twitter had some pretty strong reactions.

The news started trending on Twitter within hours of its announcement. CEO James Quincey called it a “reinvention” of the drink. Coca-Cola plans to stop selling the drink this August, replacing it with – wait for it – Coke Zero Sugar. The new soda has zero calories and – spoiler alert – zero sugar. Apparently, it will taste close to the original flavour – although, how they plan to do that without sugar would be interesting.

Some of the reactions on Twitter were pretty epic.

In the words of the immortal Tyra Banks “We were rooting for you!” *Raids every store still stocking Coke Zero*
