Where can I pick up POP sweetened by splenda rather than asparatame?

I need to stay in the diet pop rather than original but dislike the aspartame taste. I bought some cherry pop from lady york its called waist watchers and its sweetened with splenda. But Iwant to look around for more stuff, thanks for any pointers.

      Not Splenda, but I've seen pop sweetened with stevia at Longo's and The Big Carrot. I'm not a fan, but some people swear by it.

        It is awful. I was very sad as I'm allergic to aspartame - I tried a few flavours of Zevia and the aftertaste lasts forever.

          I agree. It's ridiculously bitter. But clearly somebody likes it or else it wouldn't sell.

            Yeah, I have tried it also and I am not a fan.

            Maybe a lot of people "buying it to try" and not many repeat customers :)

            Another option I could suggest is get a Sodastream if you plan on drinking a lot of pop and make your own with your own syrups added. I bought one at Costco a few weeks ago for $89 including 2 catridges. I haven't used it yet though.

          I've bought Waist Watchers from the Longo's on Bremner - that would've been about six months ago.

          Also, Diet Orange Crush and Diet Crush Cream Soda are sweetened with Splenda and available anywhere. Saw it on the shelf at Metro at Front/Jarvis just yesterday.

            Along with the Crush line (Diet Orange, Cream Soda, etc. . .), there is also Nestea Zero, Diet Schweppes, and all the Boylan's diet sodas which are also Splenda based.
