Mexican Coke vs. American Coke

with 3 comments

So yesterday I am eating tacos at a little Salvadorian restaurant in my neighborhood at the end of my block and they carry Coke in 355ml glass bottles. I ordered one with my meal and the minute I tasted it, I noticed that it tasted different…better. I start reading the bottle and see that it’s made in Mexico. Reading the ingredients I noticed something was missing…high fructose corn syrup. I commented on it to the friends that were with me and they noticed the better taste as well. Seriously, it was like crack. I ordered another one before we left. My buddy says there’s a “corn conspiracy” going on in the states. I think he is right. Corn syrup is in just about everything. Corn lobbyists are huge in DC.

Anyway, the corner store carries them in a bottle. I’m drinking another one now. Damn this tastes great.

Try it if you can find it, you’ll love it.

  2. I know at least one Austin-area Costco carries Mexican Coke as well, in case you feel the need to stock up. I too am one of the faithful converted.

  3. They alos make “kosher” Coca-Cola, which is made with cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.
