Mexican Coke

One of the highlights of my trip last week to Arthur Avenue with Julie had nothing to do with Italian food: it was the Coke you see above. That’s a Mexican Coke–Julie told me I had to try one (they sold it at a Mexican grocery store in the middle of all the Italian places)–and what makes it special is it’s made with real cane sugar, no corn syrup. After eating a giant cannoli, I wasn’t in the mood for something so sweet but I caved in just to see what it was all about and I’m glad I did. The difference between Coke made with cane sugar and Coke made with corn syrup is the difference between brownies you make yourself and a Hostess cupcake: one is real-tasting and honest, the other tastes like the plastic it’s wrapped in. If you have the chance to try Mexican Coke sometime, do. Mexican Coke is it.
