If you like Mexican Coca-Cola, start looking for soda made for Jewish Passover.
Jewish people can't consume anything with HFCS during Passover, so soda companies do a run of sugar-based drinks around this time of year, every year. The bonus is that it costs the same as "regular" Coke; Mexican soda is oftentimes a lot more.
You may have bought it before without noticing, since in some places, it seems to just replace the regular sweetened stuff for a week or two.
Here is an article about what to look for. We don't generally drink sugared sodas, but have noticed this in the regular grocery store while shopping.
Kosher-for-Passover Coke and Pepsi Are Back!(^) from Serious Eats. If interested, pay attention to to subtle changes in packaging listed inthe article.
There are many sodas made with regular sugar now. Check out all health food stores or even BevMo and read the ingredients. “Cane Syrup” is sugar. Rarely I let my kids buy a soda or two as a treat. I far prefer them eating sugar to the hideous and dangerous corn syrup.
The latest news is that HFCS “might” contain mercury. Google it - it was in the WaPo.
I didn’t know any of this, thanks. I will be on the lookout. I drink maybe a soda a month but when I want one, I want one. :)
Thanks for the links.
