    We'd get generic corn flakes. We'd then convert them to frosted flakes with generous portions of granulated sugar.

    I just got a box of lucky charms flakes. Just Frosted Flakes with the Lucky Charms marshmallows. It's ok but takes some getting used to. I prefer regular Lucky Charms, ftr.

    Marshmallow Safari was truly the best iteration of Lucky Charms. The oat portion was just the right amount of sweet, and the marshmallow to oat ratio was perfect. I miss that cereal. I miss a bunch of the old Quaker-brand bagged cereals, actually.

    It really is awful, but you are forgetting Tab. Tab is the absolute worst, but DMD is close. If you are going to drink that shit, the answer is clear that you should be drinking Diet Dr. Pepper or Coke Zero. Hell even a Diet Pepsi or a Diet Coke is mildly acceptable. DMD is just disgusting.

    DDP. I like them both and I have a stash of both of them at home. But if they are both caffeinated, I give a preference to DMD.

    Really weird question. Did anyone claim that caffeine changes the flavor?

    DMD in a heartbeat

    Diet soda is nasty in any form.

    Plus, it may be giving you diabetes anyway.

    Maybe, but if this is your conclusion you've got nothing:

    Although artificially sweetened beverages and fruit juice also showd positive associations with incidence of type 2 diabetes, the findings were likely to involve bias. None the less, both artificially sweetened beverages and fruit juice were unlikely to be healthy alternatives to sugar sweetened beverages for the prevention of type 2 diabetes. Under assumption of causality, consumption of sugar sweetened beverages over years may be related to a substantial number of cases of new onset diabetes.
    LOL, assuming causality. What editor let that sentence stand?

    Yes, these studies which we use for our meta study all have selection bias and reverse causality problems and we'll admit to it in the conclusion but somehow still claim we can make a strong inference.

    Yeah, I have seen that study. Seems like a weak connection.

    Conclusions Habitual consumption of sugar sweetened beverages was associated with a greater incidence of type 2 diabetes, independently of adiposity. Although artificially sweetened beverages and fruit juice also showed positive associations with incidence of type 2 diabetes, the findings were likely to involve bias. None the less, both artificially sweetened beverages and fruit juice were unlikely to be healthy alternatives to sugar sweetened beverages for the prevention of type 2 diabetes.

    Yeah, it's a weak conclusion and a pretty poorly written article by the BMJ.

    I was looking for another article i read a few years ago about a certain percentage of the population that processes artificial sweeteners as actual glucose, contributing to weight gain. I couldn't find the article, so i thought I'd throw this one out there for the heck of it.
