It’s the end of Coke Zero as we know it. Coca-Cola has announced that it will replace Coke Zero in the United States with a new diet soda, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar.


The company released a statement that said: "Coca-Cola Zero is getting a new name, new look and even more delicious taste. The no-calorie fan favorite will deliver an even better-tasting recipe and now be called Coca-Cola Zero Sugar."


Look for Coca-Cola Zero Sugar to hit shelves in August. The diet soda already is available in other parts of the world, including Mexico and Britain.

Stuart Kronauge, Coca-Cola’s senior vice president of marketing for North America said in a statement: "We're confident our new and improved Coke Zero Sugar recipe delivers a great taste that Coke Zero fans in the U.S. will love."

Not everyone is convinced, however:


The company assures that customers will be happy with the taste, explaining: "We optimized the unique blend of flavors that gave Coke Zero its real Coca-Cola taste in the new and improved Coca-Cola Zero Sugar recipe."

Coke Zero Sugar has no sugar and no calories.
