Diet coke + gummi bears

This may sound crazy… I was inspired by Classic 50’s drive in Norman, Oklahoma (please go there if you’ve never been). And this new “treat” has become a staple several afternoon a week to get me through the last hours of my work day. A diet Coke/Pepsi with a few gummi bears in the bottom is a glorious treat. If you let it “marinate” for a few minutes, or stir it up, it tastes like regular coke (without the regular coke calories and sugar). You will get some calories and sugar in the gummi bears themselves, but not as many. I have tried many different variations of gummi bears brands to find the best. My favorite flavor combination is Trolli Classic Bears and Diet Pepsi. I use 9 gummi bears in 32 ounces of Diet Pepsi. This totals 55 calories, and tastes wonderful. Go ahead, try it out.


About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
