Man oh man, I love Diet Coke®. In case you are new to this blog, I really can’t function without it. It’s my caffeine of choice. Recently, Diet Coke released new flavors that are DELICIOUS. The flavors they created really are all super tasty. They have created Feisty Cherry, Ginger Lime, Twisted Mango, and Zesty Blood Orange. The original Diet Coke got a new face lift and a sleek new can, but has the same great taste we all know and love. I seriously just feel fancy when I’m drinking because the package is so pretty lol.

I’m particularly feeling the Diet Coke Feisty Cherry. It has a fun fruity flavor with a little extra sass….basically my personality in a can. 😉 You can find your perfect flavor with this quiz! The good news is, you can purchase single cans for a super affordable price and try them all!

One thing I’m really loving recently is creating fun new recipes to pair with the new flavors of Diet Coke. Today, I’m sharing my recipe for Feisty Cherry Chicken Tacos. This recipe is perfectly paired with a can of Feisty Cherry Diet Coke, because I actually used some of the drink to marinate my chicken. I’m not crazy, it’s delicious! Here is the recipe.

    Sounds tasty! I don’t often do it, but every once in a while, we’ll add cola to a meat marinade. It makes for very moist, tasty meat!

    I haven’t cooked with Cola or soda before, but this sounds delicious! I love chicken in the crockpot for tacos!

  • This recipe looks amazing! I had no idea Coke had these many flavors! I feel like these are the perfect size for parties too which is awesome.

  • Oh these sound like fun! I feel like I’m the only person that doesn’t like diet coke haha whoops.

  • OMG I would’ve never thought to throw Coke in the slow cooker with it, but it sounds DELISH.

  • My Veteran Woman Life

    This is one of my favorite dishes to make! I actually use Dr Pepper, but love that I can just toss it in the crockpot and have it pretty much ready to eat by the time I get home!

  • These sound good. I never would have thought to add Diet Cherry Coke to chicken but they sure do look delicious!!!
