COKE has a new Life.

At only 160 calories a bottle and containing cane sugar and artificial sweeteners instead of regular sugar, we decided to road-test the latest addition to the cola franchise and see if it has that same thirst-quenching taste as its predecessors.

Our taste testers took part in a blind test to see if they could guess which product was the brand new Coke Life.

And the results proved quite surprising.

Taylor only managed to guess Diet Coke and Coke Life correctly, while Liz solely guessed Coke Life.

Both admitted to tasting a distinct difference in the latest fizzy drink, which proves that while it may have come from the Coca-Cola family, soft drink lovers be warned: it doesn’t taste like your average Coke.

In addition, both were asked to rate each cola drink out of 10.
