REVIEW: Diet Coke Blueberry Acai and Strawberry Guava

Diet Coke Blueberry Acai and Strawberry Guava

What are Diet Coke Blueberry Acai and Strawberry Guava?

After decades of merely fiddling with its Diet Coke lineup with the occasional vanilla, cherry, or lime addition, last year Coca-Cola let its food scientists run wild and released four new and exciting flavors aimed at the Millennial demographic. Diet Coke isn’t just for your mom anymore! Today, Coke adds two more: Blueberry Açaí and Strawberry Guava.

How are they?

Both of these sodas have a strong fruity flavor, though I don’t taste much of the second listed fruit in either case. The Blueberry Açaí Diet Coke mostly tastes like blueberries, perhaps with some extra tanginess. It’s like how a fruit snack can somehow be more like its fruit flavor than the actual fruit itself.

The Strawberry Guava Diet Coke mostly tastes like strawberries, though a bit mellowed in this case. It seems inadequate to say the guava adds a tropical flavor, but here we are, me having written the obvious and you having read it.

Is there anything else you need to know?

A confession: I know that readers rely on us at The Impulsive Buy to be your knowledgeable guides through the ever-changing culinary world, but I have to admit that I had no idea what açaí actually is. I don’t even know how to make that weird “c” thing (Thanks, spellcheck!)

Sure, it’s trendy, so I’ve eaten it in various bowls, smoothies, and other overpriced preparations, but what exactly is an acai? Google tells me that it’s a “small edible blackish-purple berry.” So it’s a blueberry. That explains why I could only taste the blueberry flavor in this soda. Or was I just tasting the açaí?

Conclusion:

If you’re a diet soda fiend like me, you’re always happy to have more options at hand. Man cannot live on Coke Zero alone. These two new additions may not be as exotic-tasting as their names suggest, but they’re tasty nonetheless.

  1. I just tried the blueberry acai today and wished I would have just bought another bottle of Robitussin. It was hard to get down, but I will say that the Fiesty Cherry that came out earlier doesn’t taste too bad. They need to make the Cherry Coke Zero or Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry flavors more available.

  2. The strawberry guava tastes like a urinal cake smells. Took a couple of swallows and then poured the remainder down the drain, yuck.

  3. I do not even drink diet soda’s because of the after taste but, a friend said this was a great drink then she bought a case of Strawberry Guava Diet coke and, gave me one to try It was delicious I really loved it

  4. Love the new blueberry diet coke. Was not impressed with the other flavors. The cherry was overwhelming. The strawberry was to overbearing. The Orange was over flavored with citrus. I need not go on. Winner by far, “blueberry!!! “
