104-Year-Old Woman Credits Diet Coke For Long Life


Theresa Rowley is 104-years-old and and she’s had at least one Diet Coke every day since the product launched in 1982. She was a young 68-years-old then.

Rowley lives in Michigan and has been in a retirement community for the past 15 years. She says it doesn’t seem like she should be as old as she is. “When I was 100, I thought I’d never be 104; I thought I’d pass away by that time but it just didn’t happen. Then I turn 101, and nothing happens. Here I am 104, and still nothing happens,” she told WZZM.

But, maybe the reason “nothing has happened” is because of her beloved Diet Coke intake.

Rowley said, “I drink it because I like it. I’m going shopping Wednesday, and I need more Diet Coke. I have a bag full of empty Diet Coke cans that I need to return to buy more Diet Coke.”

Easy enough.

In case you missed it, Diet Coke recently added four all-new flavors to the Diet Coke line, including Ginger Lime, Feisty Cherry, Zesty Blood Orange, and Twisted Mango.
