Mexican Coke

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”.

Check your bottle.

It should also be noted that the white stickers on the Mexican Coke bottles that say “sugar AND/OR corn syrup” are actually sugar. Those labels are general labels that are put on most Mexican sodas that don’t have the ingredients in English.
