I found Mexican Coca-Cola at Costco, and was excited to try it. I had heard that certain pizza places all over the country swear by it, and won’t serve American coke with its high-fructose corn syrup.
We did a blind taste test in our kitchen, and every one agreed…
Mexican Coke sucks.
The hype created a true let down. Real sugar didn’t make it taste any better, and the fountain soda that we tasted from our own tap was infinitely better.
Maybe it’s because we were all raised with the nastiness that is high-fructose corn syrup. Our taste buds are trained to like the sweetness and the carbonation that it has.
