Life Is Coke Zero True?

We don’t have any Coke Zero in the vending machine here at Stranger HQ. If you want Coke Zero, you have to walk to the Shell station (although their idea of refrigeration is European, to say the least, and they’re often out of stock) or one block farther to QFC.
Just now I made the trek. Not far from QFC, a guy saw the Coke Zero sticking out of my backpack and approached me.
He seemed hesitant, sorry to bug me. But he just had to ask. “Does that really taste better than Diet Coke?” he said.
“Well, it tastes like Coke,” I said. “Except, no calories.”
“That’s the idea.”
“Is it true?” he said.
“That’s what I heard.” He smiled. He seemed resolved to try it. “I just didn’t know if it was true.”
