The other day I asked my wife to pick up a big 128oz. bottle of Arizona Green Iced Tea for me at the grocery store, my favorite drink. She bought the 'zero calorie' version by mistake. Neither of us is overweight. But I tasted this zero calorie Arizone green tea for the first time, and it was one of the most rancid things I ever tasted in my life. Literally tasted like urine. It made me wonder because regular tea is extremely low fat/low calorie as it is so what is the point of a diet tea? But anyway I went back to the store and they let me exchange it for the regular non-diet version.

I don't understand how anyone can drink these diet drink products. I remember trying diet Pepsi once and it too was like drinking urine, it was that gross (again I wasn't on a diet or anything but was at a friend's house and that's all they had). I spit it out immediately. Not that I know what urine taste like but if you know what urine smells like then you probably have a pretty good idea of what it tastes like. What in the world is the point of drinking something so foul? If you're on a diet just drink some water already. Jeez.

I drink Teas' Tea unsweetened. It's a real thirst-quencher. They have several types/flavors (and you can get it sweetened, of course), but I like the Jasmine blend and the white/green blend.
