Mexican Coca-Cola

Have you ever tried Mexican Coca-Cola? Supposedly, it's a lot better and makes your eyes water.

Yeah, there's something about how much sweeter it is compared to regular Coke

NEver had the opportunity to try it though

This pops up on here all the time

They use regular sugar instead of HFCS

It tastes better

It's sweetened with cane sugar and not high fructose corn syrup.

Not just Mexican either. Soda is sweetened with sugar and not HFCS pretty much anywhere outside the USA and Canada.

It's also sold in glass bottles. Makes a big difference.

Coke in the UK is disgusting. Can't remember what the label said had in it but it made a big difference.

I've had it once or twice before. Can't say that it left a lasting impact on me, so obviously didn't think it was any better than regular Coke.

And now that I'm permanently on diet sodas, doubt I'll ever have a Mexican Coke again.

I've had both and think Mexican Pepsi is better than Mexican Coke. I bought some last year from Wegman's. they use the early 90's logo on the bottle. Those Pepsi/Mountain Dew throwbacks aren't bad either.

If you live in a town with a big Jewish population, there's a Kosher Coke with sugar that's around during Passover and such in 2 liter bottles. I think it has a yellow cap with the Star of David on it.

Not sure if it's around anymore, but Dublin Dr. Pepper in Texas uses the original formula and glass bottles too.

There's a burrito joint nearby that sells it, costs about $2.50 per bottle though.

Tastes good, but I wouldn't say it's head and shoulders above the usual stuff.
