While on a cruise into the Yucatan and Belize a couple of years ago, I stumbled onto something that I had not had in a long time. I had a Coca-cola, a real coca-cola with real sugar in it, not the stuff with high fructose corn syrup that fill the coolers and shelves of our QTs and grocery stores.
Some of you may remember the whole "New Coke" that came out in the 80s. The theory is that if Coca-cola switched from sugar to the cheaper corn syrup that people would notice, so they released "New Coke" and it was so universally despised that people litterally begged Coca-cola to bring back the "real thing", well the did... kinda... but time has a way of dulling the senses, and to most people the switching of sweeteners was not apparent.
Last week I was walking through Sam's club on 71st and mingo, and there in all of its glory was cases and cases of Mexican Coca-cola, with real sugar in it. needless to say I bought a case, and hopefully it will stay in stock.
