Product Description

Mexican Coke cultists of course have a rational explanation: Coca-Cola bottled in Mexico is sweetened with sugar, while the U.S. version is (almost) always made with high-fructose corn syrup. That is so. And it's surprising, given the degree to which uniformity defines the Coke idea. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the president knows it, the bum knows it and you know it.

Retail in the corner store is less than 1.50, on sale it is 99 cents.

Also, for anyone who has never tasted Mexican Coca Cola, please know that it is so much better than the Coke products you buy in the US.

Anyone who thinks Coke made with High fructose corn syrup is the same as Coke made with sugar is kidding themselves.

I first saw Mexican Coca-Cola at my local warehouse store. What is this, I wondered? Then I read an article about it and the story about how American Coke had been gradually changed and no longer was made with cane sugar. It seems that the U.S. Coke is made with corn syrup. Mexican Coke was said to be like the old-fashioned American Coke I knew and loved as a kid, so it seems. Actually, I preferred Pepsi and you got twice as much for your dime. Well, I just had to try Mexican Coke and I bought a case. It's quite delicious, and is indeed better than the Coca-Cola generally purchased in the U.S. I suppose you could say that it's gourmet Coca-Cola.

In any case, I seldom drink anything except diet soft drinks because of a calorie problem I have. However, I have friends, relatives and guests that won't drink diet drinks. So, I always have a few bottles of Mexican Coke in the fridge. I offer it with a slight explanation and people seem to love it. They're almost always amazed. The novelty is worth the extra price.

Simply no better Coke than Mexican Coke made with pure cane sugar. Save a bunch and pay no shipping if you buy at Sam's Club, I buy a couple cases a month. Sorry... I love Amazon but it's a much better deal at Sams.

Of course, back then everyone drank the good stuff. This was before the U.S. Government-sponsored sugar wars of the 1970s, leading the soft drink manufacturers to use cheaper high-fructose corn syrup instead. (+ History Lesson included below)

It was never a taste or health decision, purely cost. Of course we now know there are other (long term) costs: HFCS probably has plenty to do with the frightening increase in obesity and diabetes in this country. (* recent Princeton study; see link in Comments)

Coke's current U.S. offering isn't just bad FOR you. It tastes horrible, too. And despite official Coca-Cola comments to the contrary ("All of our consumer research indicates that from a taste standpoint, the difference is imperceptible"), anyone who has tasted both knows the difference. The suits in Atlanta have a vested interest in protecting their bottling partners on this side of the border. Their apparent failure at the taste test table thus becomes understandable if not acceptable.

On the other side of the border, however, Mexican Coke still uses cane sugar, which translates to pure sweetness not to mention less aftertaste. Nice heavy glass bottles add to the appeal. Find these at your local carniceria or bodega, or even by the case at some Costco or Sam's Club locations.

REFRESCO indeed!!!

P.S. If you are unable to find Mexican Coke locally and unwilling to pay the shipping premium here, just keep your eyes open this Spring for the special Passover Coke, which also forgoes the corn syrup for good old fashioned (and Kosher!) sugar.

[+ History Lesson follows]

By the late 1970s, increasing tariffs on imported sugar forced U.S. food manufacturers to develop alternative sweeteners. The answer quickly became high-fructose corn syrup, the price of which continues to be kept low through government subsidies for corn growers. Damn the taste, we know what fat Americans with dead taste buds want!

I am sorry, but I have to start this review with a question. When will people doing reviews here on Amazon figure out that they're for the product and not the shipping or the cost of shipping? If you really don't understand WHY it costs so much to ship glass bottles of liquid across the country you've got a common sense deficiency! Some people aren't lucky and have a local source of Mexican Coke and will pay whatever they have to in order to get some. That should tell you something about the quality of the product, which is it is AWESOME!!

I am lucky enough that our local Costco stocks it and I have to say it is not the only Coca Cola I will purchase. I love the taste, the cane sugar brings a different crispness to the soda that corn syrup does not. I also love the glass bottles, as that's how I grew up drinking Coke.

The bottom line is this is, in my opinion, the best Coca Cola that you can buy. Give it a try!

Okay where do I start?

Coca-cola around the world contains basically the same formula. However, some of the ingredients changes due to availability, government pressure, and probably particular tastes.

Coca-Cola has known to have been made with sugar, Stevia (Japan and Argentina), and the nefarious corn sweetener that dietitians are now warning us about. In Belgium, they still make Coke with the original citric acid, which gives it a rather nice aftertaste (fat chance trying to buy Belgium coke). Looks like we are stuck with phosphoric acid.

Not the government but Coca-Cola tried to put one over on us before the government stepped in to put the kibosh on sugar to boost the corn industry; the invention of "New Coke" was never meant to replace the original Coca-Cola. What it did was force us to drink mouthwash for a couple years so that when they brought out the Coke with corn sweetener they could call it classic, notice not original.

Many connoisseurs can tell the difference right from the beginning. Some people actually got headaches from corn sweetener and realized later what it was. Still today there are a handful of people that either cannot taste the difference or even prefer corn sweetener.

My suggestion is to get some Mexican Coca-Cola where you can and test it for yourself. For me it is not just the taste. It goes down smooth or and unless Mexico has a different formula, it tastes richer with a real sugar base.
