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.
