    i always thought the slight difference in the taste of coke or other drinks when travelling abroad came from the water they used... i kinda like euro-coke better, but the difference is so small that i dont know why people would go out of their way to find it

    Pepsi Throwback was all over the Phoenix/Scottsdale area when I was out there in August. A friend of mine brought back 12 cases

    Chemically it is way different. HFCS is higher in fructose. Fructose is a much sweeter sugar.

    Also, but has nothing to do taste wise. But fructose is a big cause for obesity because it has to get processed by the liver. The liver can't break down fat and sugar at the same time. Also fructose doesn't release insulin, when insulin is released it can help with satiety.

    Therefore, HFCS coke you will drink more(and eat more) and get fatter.

    While you're there, try their tacos (ask for the beef tongue).
    Tacos are good but they are too expensive. Should be $2 or less. Same with the Empanada place next door, too expensive.

    Right, that's why although I slightly prefer the taste of HFCS, I opt for real sugar if available. The jury is still out on how much better it really is, but the whole reason that HFCS exists to begin with is BS, which is enough to avoid it on principle alone

    I actually noticed a huge difference when I drank it with rum. I don't like rum, but that drink was particularly delicious, and I'm pretty sure it was the coke that made it better. And it was my first drink of the night, so I wasn't drunk, haha. I also found that Mexican Coke didn't leave a gross film on my teeth like our Coke.

    A Ferrari is a high maintenance chick, you spend money regardless of what you do with her. You can baby the C63, or slap on all seasons, and you won't be spending anything but yearly maintenance. Of course that's like dating a stripper and refusing to fuck her, which would make you gay.

    Is it the good genuine stuff? Or has it been cut with corn syrup?

    Ironically, Mexico coke destined for Mexico is made with corn syrup these days. Mexico coke destined for export is made with cane sugar, so you can only get real Mexican coke outside Mexico.

    This is the genuine stuff. GF brought this home, thought it was just some Christmas packaging. Cracked one open today, took a sip and immediately recognized the taste. Checked the ingredients, cane sugar.

    Was just in PV Mexico. It amazes me every time just how much better Coca-cola is in Mexico than it is in Canada or the US.
