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.
Us, too. I shop at Whole Foods a lot due to a serious food sensitivity, and occasionally pick up a soda there for the kiddos. Mostly, though, we just don't "do" soda. Like your kids, it's a rare treat.

Thank you for mentioning the potential mercury issue; I'd seen it before but was surprised that it didn't get very much airplay. Too much ad revenue in soda sales, I guess. At any rate, it is not worth the risk to us, so we avoid HFCS like the plague.

What if BevMo, btw?
