The Los Angeles Times reports that Coca Cola bottled in Mexico is catching on in the States. Why? Well, Mexi-Coke uses ordinary cane sugar for sweetener instead of the evil, ubiquitous High Fructose Corn Syrup, which has been used for years in Ameri-Coke.
The Coca Cola company maintains that there is no discernible difference in taste between cane sugar and HFCS. But I've had both Cokes, as there is a Mexican food restaurant near my office that offers the glass-bottled Mexi-Coke, and I definitely can taste how much cleaner, sharper, and smoother it tastes over Ameri-Coke.
"You just hate anything American, dude! Well, I say American Coke, Budweiser, Ford Trucks, McDonalds, and NASCAR all the way!"
Uh, yeah. ¡Viva Coke!
