Coca-Cola's Diet Coke sugar-free soft drink launched in the U.S. 30 years ago — on Aug. 9th, 1982, to be exact.
As Coca-Cola's Diet Coke brand page notes, "Within two years, Diet Coke had become the top diet soft drink in the world, a position the brand maintains today. Known as Coca-Cola light in some countries, it's now the No. 3 soft drink in the world" — following Pepsi at #2, and Coke at #1.
The brand celebrated by hosting 30-second parties for a few of its "biggest fans" who sent birthday wishes using the Twitter hashtag #DietCokeBday — check out a few of their reactions below — while The Guardian took a look this week at the beverage's "enduring appeal."
