The clue is phrased as an adjective.
 
You literally said it twice

Oh or not
 
Can you even call that pseudoscience? I think it's more like not-a-science.
 
contact 5
 
@GentlePurpleRain Pseudo = fake = not real
Feels sufficient to me
 
84: ✔️
 
I thought "pseudo" meant more like "a poor approximation of", or "an attempt to be like"
 
6:45 PM
6.1: ...
 
pseudo-science is often used of quackeries, so it's fitting there

Rubio, please enlighten me on 1.
I have absolutely no clue.
 
and 9 was also ASPARAGUS, yes?
 
@Rubio Me, it's ASPARTAME. Folks with PKU can't digest it
 
it is indeed.
 
'splain?
 
take a look at a can of soda with aspartame in it
 
6:53 PM
gotcha.
 
they pretty much all say: "Phenynketonurics: Contains phenylalanine"
 
Maybe in the U.S. I've never seen that.
 
well. there is that.
Also y'all have, like, Coke Light instead of Diet Coke
(or in addition to?)
and it tastes better
 
No, we have Diet Coke, and Coke Zero, and Coke Life (green can).
 
oh Life. sorry that's it
 
6:55 PM
But it has sugar. Just not as much.
 
yah.
I think I like Life > Diet > Coke > Zero
 
Coke Zero is supposed to take like regular Coke, but has no sugar.
 
but Diet w/Lime wins
 
I've ben cuttin' out them PKU substances as part a me diet
 
"supposed to" being the operative words there
 
6:56 PM
It was also developed because they determined that many people, especially men, would avoid anything with "Diet" in the title.
 
oh and they've rebranded it to be "Coke Zero Sugar" now.
Does that mean Coke Zero with Sugar? hehe
 
That's the first thing I thought when you wrote that...
 
Mike defending B
 
It's sugar that tastes like coke zero
 
yeah - it's a stupid rebrand, frankly. but w/e
