The image of a can of Diet Coke with Bacon floats around on the internet. It has a Myspace page, a Facebook page, and numerous article posts showing its Bacon and Coke glory. But there still seems to be one elusive question. Sure this picture exists; but does the actual product exist? There’s a theory that Diet Coke with Bacon was tested as a new flavor but was never released to the public. These claims date back to as early as 2008. There’s another theory that this is just another hoax laid down by the good ‘ole photoshop. You want the real answer? We decided to find out.
Scott Williamson, the Vice President of Public Affairs and Communication for Coca-Cola said, “To answer your question, no, there is no Diet Coke with bacon.”
And there you have it, folks. Now you can sleep easy tonight. Here is another little form of proof to this question. If you were wondering about the photoshop, you can clearly see where the artist got their idea for the Diet Coke with Bacon. Because c’mon… Haven’t you really wondered why exactly it would be Diet Coke as opposed to regular? Bacon and Diet… isn’t that an oxymoron? This real can of Diet Coke with Lemon clearly shows how easy this was to photoshop:
So, there you have it! It’s a fake! However, Bacon Soda DOES exist!
