Sugar free drinks in Thailand

Recommended Posts

Compared with the numerous diet and sugar free drinks available in expat countries I have found it very difficult to find anything like the choice here in Thailand.  The only soft drinks for example I have been able to find so far with a diet or sugar free option has been Pepsi Max and occassionally a Diet Coke bottle or tin will appear.  Can anyone suggest which supermarkets carry a more extensive selection from their experience please?

Pepsi Max & Diet Coke and all similar drinks contain aspartum which is possibly worse for you than sugar.

Sugar = weight gain. fatties have a lot of possible health issues

My wife seems to have a pretty easy time in BKK finding cans of Coke Light, which I gather is no sugar and no calories. (Don't ask me what's in it. She drinks it, not me!)  Coke Light is the kind with the red can and silver top ring.

Depends on how much you consume vs how much you burn off. One full strength Coke plus 5 glasses water will give you the taste and the hydration you need.

Beer is a great alternative !

The sugar free sprite stocks in the 7/11 here seem a bit erratic (was thinking to try a wholesaler to get some), lots of Pepsi Max & Coke zero, as well as coke light etc.Est cola do a sugar free but it tastes a little different...

I've taken to drinking Aquafina soda water in cans from the Jiffy garage shop,(poor mans Perrier) , and put 500 mg effervecent vitamin C in the water sometimes.

Lot of low Sugar Almond milk options available, from most major supermarkets, a bit more expensive than coke though.

Tea, coffee and, of course, plenty of water. It took a little time, but I was able to get away from sweet drinks. 

It's also much easier on the wallet!
