I've waxed on the virtues of Mexican Coca-Cola before, and how this bottling of Coke uses cane sugar instead of the high fructose corn syrup in its gringo counterpart. That's why I've always preferred Mexican Coke and its less in-your-face sugary taste. And it just so happened that I'm eating carne asada tacos for lunch at my desk, and washing it all down with a bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola while checking the latest dish at the Heckasac blog. How's that for multi-tasking ... anyway, someone posted a link in Heckasac's comments section to a story about Pepsi and Mountain Dew releasing a "throwback" line where these sodas use real sugar. Yes! This original information was culled from a story in Beverage Industry magazine, and looks like these "throwback" sodas will be available in mid-April. Could we be seeing a back-to--sugar trend in the soda world? Me and my sweet tooth sure hope so.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to email@example.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
