    I realize that Coke Zero has caffeine! I was convinced that Diet Coke was the diet version (no sugar but caffeine) and that Coke Zero was no sugar, no caffeine… I don’t know how I got this idea in mind, well since years now 🙁

  • Hilary Reynolds

    Has anyone tested the levels of caffeine in fountain colas versus canned colas. I seem to be able to get away with drinking a glass or two of fountain diet pepsi while a bottle of pepsi even drinking it in early afternoon will keep me awake at night. Thank you Hilary Reynolds

  • serenity

    Bubba cola is from save a lot. they have red and blue kinds and blue tastes alot like pespi and red tastes alot like coca cola

  • Carey Spiezio

    Dr. Pepper???

  • rahul

    My friend if that much amount of Caffeine keeps you awake. Start having Nervine teas to calm you down. Chammomile chilled tea or hot after dinner is a good one to try. Sorry for un-solicited advice.

  • Jen

    There is absolutely no caffeine in caffeine free. It is always added to pop, the ingredients don’t create it. So unless it’s just decaf the level is 0.

  • Stef

    The Zero in Coke Zero means 0 Calories.

  • Ed

    41 mg per 12 floz

  • jeremylovin

    dr pepper is not a cola flaver drink

  • jeremylovin

    flavor

  • Morranda

    I am also trying to find out did you ever find out the answer?

  • Ted

    Since it seems to be a copy of Mountain Dew, it most likely has a similar caffeine amount.

  • no caffiene, but there is probably the same amount or more sugar in those kinds of sodas. that is probably what keeps you up!

  • Jason L Martin

    neither is Diet Cheerwine but that’s on the list

  • Gil

    There is a different version of Diet Coke with a golden label which is a No Caffeine variety.

    I HAVE NOTICED THE CAFFEINE DIVING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE INGREDIENT LISTS OF THE CANS OF THE MAJOR BRANDS, I THINK THIS IS TO MAKE US DRINK MORE TO AVOID THE HEAD AND NECK ACHES, OR TO BUY THE MORE EXPENSIVE ENERGY DRINKS.
