Out of the Blue

We were at the supermarket checkout today when I started admiring the Coke bottles in the point-of-sale fridge, as they had it in those classic 20 oz. fluted glass bottles you don't see much anymore. Then a white sticker caught my eye, serving as a second clue that this was not just any soda. Sure enough, a closer examination revealed that this was the Mexican Coke made with real sugar that is so hard to find. I scooped up five bottles, and I will probably give in to the temptation to go back and get the couple of bottles I left behind if they are still there. It's just tough to swallow the $1.20 a bottle they are charging, as that makes this stuff more expensive than premium gasoline. On the other hand, it's rarer than gas, so maybe that's justified.

A basic 500ml plastic bottle of coke here (UK) is about $1.70.

Not a big fan of sugary fizzy drinks personally.
Almost all of us in North America can only get our pop made with fructose/glucose or a combination of both in it. Finding it made with cane sugar or something similar like beet sugar is rare. Another good find, if you run across it? Dr. Pepper made from cane sugar.

Oh and that egg yolk thing. I call bunk, it's about every 4 years or so they go through the "doom, not doomed, doomed, not doomed" thing. 40,000 or more years we've been eating eggs. It hasn't killed us yet, though everything else has.
