Not here. I checked a while back, since I prefer a low sodium diet. That and after drinking nothing but Coke Zero for a month then going to a Diet Coke... I tasted salt.

A number of sodas have a salt content.

Sugar content. Often worse then with a soda.

Interesting, you are right Cat (not that I was doubting you): http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/brands/coke-zero.html

Indeed they are!

I didn't believe it at first either. They DO have the benefit of containing vitamins etc. that are needed.

Shipping it could be difficult. Our Commie-Nazi overlords suspect packages that go "sloosh".

Then it's not the real deal.

The difference is between adding sugar or not. Most juices have it added. Also... cornstarch.

Sort of, as they also tend to contain - cornstarch, salt, preservatives... :-(

The natural sugars can also be damaging based on any health problems you have. As a diabetic, natural sugars can hit you harder then processed stuff. :-(
