    Easier to distinguish as such. I sell those products, and it's easier to say 

    " Coke .. Diet Coke " than if I were to say " Coca Cola .. Diet Coca Cola "

    honestly it sounds longer compared to diet coke. its like having a name of justinese timberlake-cyrus. suuuper long right? this is why initials are made, or shorter versions of the word

    Because 9 months and $12 million of focus groups liked it better.

    Why is Walmart's house clothing brand called Faded Glory and the leading condom brand named Trojan? Same reason and also, hilarious.

    Soon we'll have a company that makes protest signs named "I'm mad at my daddy because my daddy never taught me how to be an adult so I need to scream at any established adults for raining on my perpetual childhood."

    Oh those focus groups.

    Diet Coca Cola = 6 syllables. Too long

    Diet Coke = 3 syllables. Just right.

    Besides, everyone says "Coke". 🥤
