Mexican Coke

The Story of Mexican Coke Is a Lot More Complex Than Hipsters Would Like to Admit

An interesting read on Mexico's resistance to, and the United States insistence to, the of use high-fructose corn syrup over sugar from sugar cane. Who knew that the World Trade Organization (WTO) would play the heavy in the United State's attempt to force Mexico into using cheaper high-fructose corn syrup?! And the motivation for Mexico's resistance to using the corn based sweetener is not as transparent as you might think...

Mexican Coke vs. American Coke Taste Test

Coca-Cola was first introduced in 1886. The original recipe was made with sugar from sugar cane. However, in 1985 the Coca-Cola Company replaced cane sugar with cheaper high-fructose corn syrup. Meanwhile, south of the border in México, Coca-Cola bottlers continue to use the original formula with cane sugar.
