Coca-Cola made in USA with Real Sugar available soon.


Corn Syrup is not Kosher. As such, as every Passover approaches, Coca-Cola manufactures a limited amount of their product Coca-Cola made with real sugar, which IS Kosher.

These limited runs of sugar Coca-Cola are not available everywhere. You have to find a grocery store or other outlet near areas populated by people who celebrate Passover.

The real sugar Coke is sold in 2 liter plastic bottles and differ in that the plastic cap is yellow. The yellow cap and insignia on the yellow cap indicate this special Coke made with real sugar.

There's no question that Coke was better when it was made with real sugar. The company switched to corn syrup because HFCS is cheaper than sugar.

If enough people buy up the Kosher Coke, maybe the company will re-issue real sugar Coke for the regular commercial market.

Passover Coke should be appearing on select shelves within the next few weeks.

People who prefer diet soda because normal HFCS soda is too sweet have a point. Coke made with real sugar is actually LESS sweet than HFCS Coke, but, that's what makes sugar Coke better.

They don't want you calling it High-Fructose Corn Syrup anymore: LINK.

Screw that. They need to make this available everywhere. I started drinking Pepsi Throwback because it's made with real sugar. It tastes better that regular Pepsi. I'd like to try Coke with real sugar.

OK, then I'll be extra sure to never refer to it by any name other than High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Ive had the mexican made Coke (available at EarthFare).

I defy anyone on the planet to tell me the difference between the sugar and HFCS. There is absolutely no difference. I did blind tastings and was at 50% over and over. Just like flipping a coin.

I respect anyone's religious dietary practices, or political choices or whatever. But I promise, if you do a blind tasting you will realize they are identical.

and its cheaper thanks to the combo of high sugar tariffs and corn subsidies which encourages people to grow more corn

classic cases of crony capitalism.

I know. I also hate crony capitalism. That's what happens when FedGov gets involved in areas of private life that are far beyond what was originally intended by the Constitution.

But, I digress.

You can Coke w/ real cane sugar ANYTIME......here's a hint "MEXICAN"!!!! Any Mexican market/store or decent Mexican restaurant (Not Tex Mex) carries it. It comes in a large glass bottle. Here in The Port City it is readily available. ENjoy!

BULL SHIT

I have had both hundreds of times. Many times I didnt know I was given a real sugar coke and after one sip it prompted me to look at the can to see if it was real sugar and it was.

I could pass your little test 100000000/100000000 times before dying of diabetes.

It so different that my prego wife developed a craving for it over regular coke. I was unsucessful in fooling her when I couldnt find it. Luckily I discovered that many hardware stores sell it because virtually all mexican workers know the difference.

If you have not developed a taste for the real sugar Kosher Coke, you might not be able to sit down blind folded and tell the difference.

However, I was able to buy a bunch of 2 liter bottles of Kosher Coke a couple of years ago. After I had been drinking the Kosher Coke made with real sugar, I really could taste a sample of HFCS Coke and tell that it was not real sugar Coke.

Even Mexican Coke does not taste the same as real sugar Coke made in the USA, even though Mexican Coke and Kosher Coke are both made with real sugar.

The Kosher Coke made in the USA with real sugar tastes better than Mexican Coke made with real sugar.

Not true. As I said, a couple of years ago, I acquired a bunch of real sugar, made in the USA Coca Cola. After drinking it for a period of time, I was able to discern a difference in taste between the Kosher Coke, HFCS Coke and Mexican Coke. I spent probably three months to conduct my own personal research experiment.

Now, if you sit down blindfolded and conduct your taste test, many folks might not discern a difference, I grant you that. However, once the mind becomes accustomed to the taste of Coca Cola made with real sugar and made in the USA, you can tell the difference.
