mexican coke

While we await the end of the world as we know it (see below), may I recommend what has become my latest guilty pleasure? Mexican Coca-Cola! Coke produced in Mexico is sweetened with cane sugar rather than the high fructose corn syrup that now dominates EVERTHING sweet in the U.S. of A. The cane sugar yields a nice crisp, flavor that is sadly lacking in the U.S. version. It is not cloyingly sweet. Instead, it is sophisticated and nostalgic - stirring up memories of the taste we remember from our childhood. Mexican Coke can be purchased in the Mexican Food section of your local supermarket. It comes in the traditional glass bottle with a paper ingredients label affixed.

No need to thank me. Just enjoy!
