View Full Version : Coke Classic in other countries?

With all the buzz about the Kosher for Passover Coke, I was curious if anyone knew if the Coke from other countries would happen to be sweetened with cane sugar instead of HFCS. There is a store locally that sells what appear to be glass bottles from Mexico, and the label that appears to be slapped onto the bottle to meet US ingredient list requirements has the run-of-the-mill "HFCS AND/OR SUCROSE" on it. Since that is inconclusive at best, should these bottles have the same good sugary Coke in them?

yes thats regular Coke. So Coke from Mexico is STILL made with sugar.

Coke "classic" really is not the original Coke most grew up with, it just tastes very close to it.

So, what you are saying is that the Coke from Mexico is actually the Original, unlike the Classic Coke in the US?

Coke classic is 99% like the original. Just a different sweetner that can result in a different taste.

As a general rule, Coke made in countries where sugar is produced, which is to say tropical countries, is made with sugar, and Coke made in countries where HFCS is made, which is to say temperate countries, is made with HFCS. Just grab a map.
