Does anyone know how Mexican Coke compares to British / European Coke? I know that they don't use HFCS over here but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the same as Mexican Coke.

^ Probably a difference in whether sugar cane is used or not.

With Mexican coke, do you get a worm in the bottle, or what?

Its crap like this that gets me. They (the us bottlers) scream about the price of sugar, but EVERY WHERE ELSE they use it. Its all about greed in this country, and its getting old.

As far as I know they're pretty much identical.  UK soft drinks use cane sugar rather than HFCS.  Is the US coke really all that different in taste? I've never had it.

Does imitation vanilla taste the same as real vanilla?  Sadly I remember the whole Coke,New Coke, Classic Coke debacle.  Soda has never been the same.  Pepsi will release cane sugar Mt Dew and Pepsi in certain times of the year and EVERYONE agrees its way better.

I buy it just because I like drinking from glass bottles and most places don't sell glass bottles of US coke. But the use of cane sugar isn't bad either.
