Aspartame tastes like crap, I tells ya. I just drank a mixed drink containing vodka, and juice sweetened with pure ickiness. Tasted like Satan. It wasn’t the vodka’s fault. But I’m still tasting the aspartame. Ugh. It makes me shudder. I hear that a lot of people actually prefer diet soda. Why? Why why why why why!? I kind of want to vomit.
