Coke Zero Is Being Replaced and People Are VERY Upset
It’s time to say goodbye to Coke Zero, as Coca-Cola just announced that it will soon be replacing the popular drink with an entirely new recipe (perhaps something like Coke Plus?). And while all good things come to an end, fans of Coke Zero are not willing to let go of their favorite soda so easily. In fact, they are VERY (!!!) upset about the situation.
While Coke claims that the new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar drink will be “even better” than the original option and will “optimiz[e] the unique blend of flavors that gave Coke Zero its real Coca-Cola taste,” some fans are just flat-out confused by this move…

Others are seeing a familiar mistake being made once again…
Coke Zero was the only no/little sugar drink that was ever worth a damn. This is 'New Coke' all over again. History repeats itself. pic.twitter.com/Z9FWWnubno

So many real problems in the world today that I'm gonna focus on the trivial – WTF, why are they getting rid of my beloved Coke Zero??

Guys, I know I joke a lot, but I could actually really use some prayer. They're getting rid of Coke Zero, and I don't know what to do.

Had such good hopes for this week. Then, the Trump/BSA speech, Healthcare vote, big change at my employer, and now Coke Zero is going away pic.twitter.com/LxrUZsMgUZ
