Coke and Pepsi are unveiling 'Low-Carb' versions of their colas. Today's Washington Times has a good article on it, and a graph that compares the carbs, sugar and calories of Low-Carb, Diet and Regular Coke and Pepsi. Get this: the low-carb stuff has 13g's of sugar! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) Seems to me that if you want to drink Coke/Pepsi, you're better off sticking to the diet stuff, which has zero carbs and zero sugar.
Right under the low-carb soda article is another article about a new low-carb potato, a new type of spud that has only 13g of carbs per serving. The spud should be available next January.
Jeeze, everybody's got to get into the act! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

The low carb drinks are something else. I guess If someone was not worried about sugar or calories. We bought two cases for the employees. Several of us compared the regular coke to C2. It's have but golly, still has a lot of calories and sugar and carbs - it has 39 gr. of carbs. I was told that was almost one days worth of carbs - I guess for an Atkins diet person. Yuk, give me Diet Rite any time!
