Yep, artificial sweeteners do that. Fortunately I have a severe medical condition that seems to offset much of that potential weight gain.

After acclimation, one actually finds sugar pop too … saccharine (ironic use of word noted ☺.

I only like extra spicy ginger beer these days.  For everything else, sugar overwhelms all other flavors and the 'burn' which is why I like pop in the first place is only strong enough for the first gulp or two drinking out of the can/bottle.

I can't abide the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.  It is as bad as salad dressing instead of mayonnaise in recipes.  Every now and then I get one I think works and then a few seconds later, it's yech, yech, yech.

Oh man, I missed it...   Those conspiracy theorists might get more traction if they could combine their theories for alien planets and Revelation proof-texting, with Mormon myths.   Missed opportunity I think, just sayin...  

Am off to the sacred groove.

As a BYU alumnus, I would have preferred they abandon the no-facial-hair policy first. Never cared much about caffeine.

Baby steps, baby steps... they will get there.

Some want to blame the UofU vs BYU win loss record. I think a marketing campaign had more effect. :)

It's awesome with bourbon and lime (for those who really want to push the Word of Wisdom...)

It's a football fundraiser. The 1-3 start has resulted in a reduction of donations and money is required to compete with the big boys.

      I've always considered caffeine to be a gateway drug.  Still do.  So while I realize that it's not specifically part of the WoW (the doctrine though is that habit forming substances are to be avoided), my family is being raised to be caffeine free in terms of soda pop.
       
      For those who would like to remind us of chocolate, are we affected by that as much as say regularly drinking Coke or Mountain Dew?
