Out of the Blue

I had a triumph over the weekend in my long-standing quest to find Coca-Cola sweetened by sugar rather than high-fructose corn syrup. We were shopping in Costco when I recalled that there is supposed to be Coke available around this time of year that's made with sugar to be kosher for Passover. We took a look for this in the soda section, and instead finally found the Mexican-manufactured coke that first sent us to Costco in the first place about 10 months ago. As a bonus it comes in 12 oz. long-neck glass bottles, old-style green tint and all. It's almost a buck a bottle, and worth every penny. Belated thanks to all of you who alerted me to the availability of this treat.

Told you last year: Costco. BTW room-temperature Coke is good for your stomach, too.
