Each year, Coca-Cola makes Coke with real sugar for American Jews to drink during Passover. Normal everyday Coke contains high fructose corn syrup, an ingredient that has been getting slammed in the media, but one that is much cheaper than sugar.
There are a group of “Real Coke” enthusiasts who buy it in bulk during Passover because they want to drink Coke with no high fructose corn syrup! Some people even seek out the sugar Coke in small Mexican restaurants and grocery stores! Sugar was part of the Original Coke recipe until the 1980’s when they started slowly switching over to HFCS because it was cheaper!
Does this Coke really taste better? You can read a one blogger’s thoughts on his Coke for Passover review here.
Look for the Coke with the yellow cap; Stock up now and drink it all year!!
