Musings... Coke Zero loses its fizz more quickly?

Ever since I got hooked on Coke Zero years ago, I've pretty much stopped drinking regular Coca Cola. There's something about it, maybe in the sweetness. The second I open a can, I just chug as much as I can until my throat starts to burn.

A while ago, I noticed that Coke Zero in can form appeared to lose its fizz, carbonation, or bubbles more quickly than Coca Cola, also in can form. The last few cans I had shared this "feature" as well. Anyway, what gave it away was that the bubbling sound out of opened cans of Coke Zero seemed more violent compared to Coca Cola. Like they were losing their carbonation more quickly? And an opened can of Coke Zero seemed to taste flatter than Coca Cola after the same amount of time sitting at room temperature.

This question could probably have been answered more definitively by doing some simple side by side comparative tests. It's on my to-do list...
