Is Mexican Coca~Cola Different Than American Coke - The Key Mexican Coke Ingredient
Enjoying Specialty Coca Cola
Enjoying Coke From Mexico Is Different
At lunch today, we each ordered a cold bottle of coke. I love the coke bottle with the hourglass figure. It's so easy to hold and feels great in your hand on a hot day.
After one sip, I thought, hmmm this tastes different. Sometimes my taster is off, but I thought, it seems sweeter than I remember.
Hecho en Mexico and Refresco, I thought could Coke from Mexico be different than the same Coca~Cola we enjoy in the USA?
It turns out Coca Cola from Mexico is made with sugar cane sweetner and tastes sweeter. USA bottlers of coke switched from cane sugar in the 1980's as costs were rising and now use corn syrup.
Mexican Coke it turns out is somewhat of a specialty item. It is infrequently available and usually found in small stores or Mexican grocery stores. Our Mexican bottled Coke had a special sticker on it with the ingredients. The 12 once 355 ml bottle of Coca Cola listed ingredients where:
- Carbonated water
- Carmel color
- Natural Flavors
I'm not trippin, the label actually listed phosphoric and acid separately.
I really enjoyed my bottle of Mexican Coke it reminded me of....Pepsi.
