I feel sorry for today’s kids because they will never know what it was like to eat coco pops on the 80s.
You should pick up a box of sugar-and-artificial-flavour-laden American cereal sometime. The dopamine hit is amazing and reminiscent of the impact sugary cereals used to provide when I was a kid.

Or you have those x28 cans per day of diet cola, and go the way of J'Daly:

He’s obese, smoked like a chimney and drank like a fish. He had bigger issues than artificial sweeteners.

The youngish (54) fella sure partied hard.

But those x28 cans of diet coke can't of been much help for his bladder. Besides, smokers usually get lung issues, and drinkers usually get liver/kidney damage.

Phissing out x28 cans of artifically sweet could well have played havoc on the aul bladder bag, the poor chap.

Not my problem if other people csnr limit their intake of sugar, I can.
Of all the fizzy drinks, the difference in taste of 7-up is surely among the very worst. The bitter disgusting taste of sweeteners is overpowering. The people making these drinks must surely know how horrible everyone else is going to think they are before they change the recipes?

A few weeks ago I bought some lucozade for the first time in years, I took one mouth full out of the bottle and I launched the bottle across the yard in absolute disgust

Actually x28 cans is far above the FDA safe health limit for diet colas.

A typical can of diet soda contains about 185 milligrams of aspartame, meaning the average person should not drink more than 18cans per day. The WHO and Europeans have a lower limit of 14 cans.

Hence there is reasonable cause to directly associate young Daly's bladder cancer with this daily intake of 28cans of diet cola. This is even before considering the other one: 'Acesulfame K' (200 times sweeter than sucrose).

Diet Coke:
Carbonated Water, Colour (Caramel E150d), Sweeteners (Aspartame and Acesulfame K), Natural Flavourings Including Caffeine, Phosphoric Acid, Citric Acid. Contains a Source of Phenylalanine

Just Mrs. Elephant's vitamin tablets ... Sweeteners. Christ.

What harm will that tiny bit of sugar do in a tablet that weighs less than a gram? The artificial sweeteners make them unpalatable.

Why not just eliminate sugar in sugar free versions altogether instead of replacing it with sweeteners? And leave sugared tablets for those who want it.

Because everything would taste like crap. There's nothing wrong with sugar anyway.
