In case you think “made in America” is always better, you haven’t had a Mexican Coca-Cola. Prevalent in Mexican populated communities in Los Angeles, Texas, and around the southwestern US, you can find the imported bottles of Coke. The glass bottle might make for a slightly improved flavor, but the sweeter taste comes from the real CANE SUGAR inside. American Coke has been sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup since the 80’s. (Remember when “NEW Coke” came out in ’85, only to switch back to Coca-Cola Classic? Well, they didn’t actually switch back, they switched to the new corn syrup recipe.). So if you want a real classic Coke, make sure it says “Henche De Mexico”.
