So back during the superbowl I saw some advertisements for Vault soda.  "Drinks like a soda, kicks like an energy drink."

"Hmm," I thought, thinking about my wanting to ween off of energy drinks since I used to drink about two a day during college, "I must try this stuff!"

So I've been drinking it ever since seeing the ad during the Super Bowl.  The market by my house sells a 20 ounce for $0.89, so that's not too shabby.

I love the stuff.

The only way I can describe the taste is if you've ever had Surge - a drink Coca-Cola made about 7 years ago or so - but it's really tasty.  I've only tried the "Zero" kind (I've been hooked on diet pops for many years now and dont' drink regular) but it's the tastiest diet soda I've ever had.  My brother and I now routinely purchase a Vault Zero a day.

Anyone else try Vault Zero?  If you're a fan of diet cola, or perhaps even just regular as well, and want to try something extremely good, give Vault Zero a shot.

Sound good!  I think I'll give it a try.

Does it give you a boost like an energy drink?

I tried the regular kind and I dont think it really gave boost like an energy drink at all.  I would put the effects on par with regular old Mt Dew.  Tasted pretty good though.

My brother got me hooked on the stuff; it's probably the best tasting zero-caloried soda I've ever had.

You know, it really doesn't.  Maybe that's a good thing, maybe bad.  But yeah, I haven't had that "kick" from it.

I picked some up today, but found out afterwards I had the regular Vault and not the diet.  frown  
The regular is too sweet for me, but it does taste good.  I have to remember the "Zero" part next time.

I didn't even know there was a Zero.  I'll have to try it out.  I actually liked Surge back in the day.

I believe that Diet Mountain Dew Code Red is the true ambrosia but there is always room in my frige for a runner-up.

Diet Mountain Dew Code Red was my favorite, but Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is now my favorite diet soda.

I just can't get into the vanilla.  I've honestly only tried diet vanilla coke, but it was so bad I can't even think about it without cringing.  If on the off chance I can find a can I will give the diet cherry vanilla dr. pepper a shot.  I like diet dr. pepper so maybe I'll like it.  As long as it doesn't taste like vanilla coke.  ugh.

Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is much better than Diet Vanilla Coke.  Coke Zero is much better tasting that Diet Coke, so you might want to check it out.  It almost tastes like regular Coke.

Oh man, I LOVED Diet Code Red Mountain Dew!  But they stopped selling it around here   frown   That was so good though!

Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper IS good stuff as well!

Try the new black cherry vanilla diet coke.  Good stuff.  It's like coke zero, almost as sweet as the regular version.

I used to feel like the Nutra Sweet in Diet Coke was actually eating through my stomach lining it tasted so bad.  Now I can't stand the sweetness of the regular stuff.  You get used to it when you don't really have a choice.  I see where you're coming from, though.

Dep, I sure feel sorry for you.  Sometimes it's hard to find the DMDCR around here but it's the one item I will travel all over town to find.  Most stores get very few in around here.

I'm going to try some of these other drinks as well.  I'm always looking to expand my horizons.

Probably half the responses  here are from diabetics (me, too), so the chemicals don't matter as much as the sugar, to us anyway.

I also can't find Diet Code Red around here.  I love Diet Dr. Pepper... and oddly enough I prefer the flavor of the NutraSweet Diet Coke to the Splenda one - which is backwards to everything else I like, Splenda being so much better.  To me, the Splenda Diet Coke tastes much more like the original Coke than the Nutra-Sweet one, but i've been drinking the NS one for so long, I've come to like it.

I'm definitely going to look for the Vault Zero though now... what's the sweetener in it, Dep? A friend can't drink NutraSweet without headaches, and sticks to Splenda and the one they usually use with it (whose name escapes me now, of course).  Thanks for the tip!  Tongue

Love Coke Zero and I'll track down a Vault Zero for a test run, always good to have a back-up diet drink.  The best diet root beer I've had was Barq's, good stuff.

Is Code Red still around? I used to drink that stuff like crazy. Switched to Pepsi to try and cut back on my caffeine slowly.

Tried a vault zero last week and thought it was okay.  Probably try another one this week to see if it grows on me. But as long as we're tossing out favorite Diet drinks - here are the three I just couldn't imagine life without right now.

Surge was the most disgusting drink ever Dep. I will however try this thing if I can find the no calorie version.

this is Surge, no lie, it's the exact same soda. I tried the Zero version today, and it was decent for a diet soda, and I don't normally drink soda, but it pales to the new Diet Mountain Dew, which is exceptional in terms of a diet softdrink.
