Diet Coke was introduced 29 years ago. That really got me thinking about how long I’ve been drinking Diet Coke. I’m pretty sure I was one of the first Diet Coke customers. Seriously. I have been drinking it for 29 years. I am going to be 44 next month and I started drinking it as a teenager, so it’s about 29 years. WOW!

In celebration of Diet Coke’s 29th Birthday and my surprise (4 days away)…

So what was going on 29 years ago? Let’s take a trip back in time….

1982

The year is 1982. That would be the summer before my Sophomore year of high school (which is exactly what this summer is for my oldest son.)

1982 Slogan: “Just for the taste of it!”

I couldn’t find a commercial from 1982, but I found this one from 1983.
