Coca Cola de Mexico

Costco sells a case of Mexican Coca Cola, in bottles, which is made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup like in the USA. I was expecting a taste explosion, but unless I pay careful attention I don’t even notice the difference. I was hoping for a taste of my childhood when coke was a real treat.

Possible reasons:

  1. Coke is very careful to tweak their formulas
  2. Re: my childhood, I wear rose-colored glasses
  3. It’s a trap — it’s really the same stuff
  4. Sugarwater is sugarwater, regardless
