Could I sue coca cola Feb. 1st, 2013 @ 06:07 PM Reply

Can I sue them for false advertising

Coca cola and coke zero does not taste the fucking same

the only problem would be proving it as a fact (since coca could easily just pay some random guy to go to court and say that they think it tastes like coca cola or some bullshit like that)

is there a scientific way to make taste come out in patterns or something? I mean different sounds that go through a certain material can come out in patterns

also I wonder if coke could use the defense of 'same GREAT taste of coca cola, but not the same taste' or something like that. In that case I would be fucked

I genuinely found the taste of Coke Zero very very similar to normal Coca Cola. Probably helps that I don't drink it much cause its just way too sugary for my liking, but when I tried Coke Zero I really thought it could pass for regular coke no problem.

Know of anyone who can't tell the difference between lemon and lime?

That's like comparing regular Coke to Diet/Zero Coke - Aspartame does not taste the same as sugar.

I just wish I could find a way to put taste into patterns or something.

Then I could see how big of a difference there is and try it at court and make some mad bucks $$$$$$$

You can try, but remember that they are a corporation - corporations will do anything in order to avoid staining their image with something humiliating.

Theyre pretty similar.

I prefer the taste of diet coke anyway.

Taste almost exactly the same to me. For sure closer to the real Coke taste than Diet Coke ever dreamed of.

When I hardly ate sugar and only had diet soda when I drank soda, tasted just fine. Now it tastes yucky.

So yeah, you probably could.

Well considering taste is subjective you can't sue them. They can just be like "well Adam here thinks that it tastes exactly the same".

Also, cream soda is the best soda.

I prefer Coke Zero to normal Coca-cola. I don't mind Diet either. Maybe that's just because I'm Diabetic.

Probably, considering how many whack lawsuits end up in court. I doubt you would be successful, as they have decent money to hire good lawyers.

Even if you won the case (highly unlikely) they would probably just pay you in Coke

It does not have the same kind of materials as Coke Zero, but isn't how something tastes more of a matter of opinion? I mean yes, some foods are universally hated or loved, but I doubt you could go to court with that.

What's difference between ordinary coke, Cola Light and Coke Zero?

Does Coke Zero really zero sugar?
That would explain, why Coke Zero tasted like water.

I've heard of people who sued (or at least tried to) food places because the food made them fat or they found human body parts in their food and I doubt that ever really went anywhere. I think it's going to be impossible to sue Coca Cola for this. The wackiest thing I ever heard of was someone being sued because they cut themselves on the aluminum can. Of course, there are really dumb people out there.

Suing Coco-Cola because regular Coke and Coke Zero taste different is pretty pointless...

Also, companies tend to exaggerate stuff in their commercials so it can make people buy it more. Not all companies do that though, of course. So, it's not much of a big deal to sue them.

Do they claim that they do? I thought their advertising for it said something about a better, stronger, more intense taste. Or something like that If that's the case: not suable.
