About Diet Rite

Diet Rite is a brand of no-calorie soft drinks originally distributed by the RC Cola company. It was introduced in 1958 and initially released as a dietetic product, but was introduced nationwide and marketed to the general public as a healthful beverage in 1962.

Product containers, however, still bear the Dr Pepper/Seven Up markings. The early 1960s broadcast media advertising campaign featured a jingle with the lyrics:
