Highly Misguided
 
You'd think that Coca-Cola would realize that it's got the low-carb thing already figured out--Diet Coke, Diet Cherry Coke, Diet Vanilla Coke, Diet Coke with Lemon, Diet Coke with Lime, Diet Sprite, Diet Sunkist, et al. all have zero grams of carbs, as does Aquafina. They could, theoretically, bring out low-carb versions of Powerade and rip-off Tropicana's new lower-carb orange-juice-drink for the Minute Maid division, but there's not much else you can do.

Except, of course, bring out a beverage with half the carbs of regular Coca-Cola.

So, wait, you're trying to cut carbs, but you'd rather drink a half-sugar drink than a sugar-free drink? Granted, I've heard from some people that there's a perceptible difference between regular and diet sodas--from what I can tell, regular sodas are slightly sweeter--but I think the last person who tried to avoid diet sodas while limiting their sugar intake was my grandmother, who would dilute regular-calorie Coke--but then, she'd experienced Tab, so it's sort of understandable.
