Real Sugar Coke - Sunday, Jan. 17

Oh real sugar. How do I love you. You're especially fantastic in soda. But poor sugar, constantly cast away for the cheaper, sweeter abomination of high-fructose corn syrup. What a shame.

However, sometimes real sugar is used and it makes me so very happy. Last time it was Mountain Dew Throwback. This time it's real sugar Coca-cola, commonly referred to as "Mexican" cola because it's made in Mexico and therefore doesn't have to be made of highly processed foodstuffs and artificial everything. Seriously, the ingredients are just: water, sugar, caramel color, phosphoric acid, flavors, caffeine. Reading a normal bottle of Coke is like reading the ingredients to a shampoo bottle. Disgusting.

Ah, a cold sweaty bottle, just like the olden times I was never around for. The taste is pretty great. Imagine the taste of Coke but not as tongue-coatingly sweet. Imagine if the taste of the many secret oils and spices Coke uses to make their magical product actually come through, instead of pure sweetness and failure. The best part about this stuff? My school carries it on their meal plan. Woohoo! If you can find this stuff, I suggest getting it. It'd make an EXCELLENT mixer. But I wonder what for....

Oh yeah...Kraken Rum. Which I now have a bottle of. Review's up next
