Best Alternative to Diet Coke

BibiCaffe

My addiction to Diet Coke is killing me. At least I'm pretty sure it is; all those chemicals can't be doing the body any good. It's taken me years to find a suitable replacement—the necessary criteria include effervescence, light caffeination, not too much sugar, and the ability to be served cold, and energy drinks are out of the question—but I have great confidence in BibiCaffe, a sparkling Italian espresso drink. It comes in a cute little bottle with a bright red label that looks vaguely medicinal, has a six-item ingredient list that includes both sugar and espresso, and gives me the perfect afternoon kick-start without the harshness of a second cup of coffee. The only problem is that with 77 calories per bottle, I have to watch my intake, but I'm starting to think that's a good thing; at least I know I'm consuming something. Buy it by the bottle or case at Pacific Food Importers.—Anna Roth
