No, not that kind. I'm talking about Coca-Cola in your Mexican food section of your supermarket. It uses real sugar, not like US Coke which uses fructose. The taste is different, but better...quite a bit better. Reminds me of my youth.

It is sooooo much better. I drink like 2 a year and they MUST be Mexican.
Once again, the hipsters have found this and run the price up. A few years back we'd buy it in a little grocery store here and it was cheaper than regular Coke because it was in a smaller bottle.
Now it's everywhere, but the price is way more than regular Coke.

Enjoyed it for years, on the rare occasions I drink Coke. But even better than Mexican Coke is Passover Coke. Every year during Passover, you can buy Passover Coke at Jewish stores in Atlanta (and I assume other places). Passover Coke is made in Atlanta by CocaCola and uses sugar, not corn syrup. It's better. Unfortunately, it only comes in 2ltr bottles, but still, it's good.

Moxie is better than any Coca-Cola.

Moxie. I tried that a couple of years ago, in Portland, ME.

It was not the highlight of the trip, as I recall. Maybe the Maine Moxie is different than the NY Moxie.

Ted Williams drank Moxie. At least that's what the billboards said. That Moxie I had in Maine tasted like it was left over from the 1946 season.

Could you imagine how famous Williams would have been had he played for the Yankees?

Ted Williams endorsed Moxie, doesn’t mean he consumed it. Same thing with Sears & Roebuck fishing equipment. And isn’t one DiMaggio as a teammate enough?

Why is Passover Coke any different than Mexican Coke?

Mexican Coke is made in Mexico by Mexicans.

Passover Coke is made in Atlanta by circumcised Mexicans.

I try to avoid soda these days, but I do drink Coke when I go to Honduras for this reason - real sugar. There's no question that it's better than the high fructose corn syrup junk we get.

That would be a rough pre-hiring medical exam.
