Does anyone know where to find Mexican (tall glass, cane sugar) Coca-Cola in the DC or Maryland area. I'm in Takoma park and there are tons of Latino markets and I assume one must import it. Anyone seen it?
thanks!
btw...found passover Coke at the Rockville Giant and at Rodman's in Wheaton

I'm confused. Every Latino grocer/bodega in Takoma Park/Langley Park (there are dozens of them) has Mexican Coke. Have you not gone into one or are you looking to buy a case at a time?

I was hoping to avoid stopping at every one...not that I'm adverse to going to those lengths for soda. I have gone to a few international markets around here and hadn't seen it, so I thought someone might be able to pinpoint me to a specific source....

Atlantic Supermarket ("Atlantico"), at the northeast quadrant of the intersection of New Hampshire Ave and University Blvd. has a wide variety of Mexican sodas, as does almost any latino market in Langley Park.

The closest thing to pure can sugar these days splenda, that's like the only decent sweetner!

Nope, only decent sweetner is cane sugar, the rest is just imitation.

I can't find any in Arlington-Alexandria, VA. I used to find sugar Coke from Mexico in a small market in Arlington, but that has been replaced by Coke from Mexico with HF corn syrup. Will travel! In the D.C. area, anyway, for a sure source. I miss my sugar Coke.

That's the thing, I hear people say they can easily find cane sugar Coke in the deep South, Texas, etc. Costco, grocery stores, etc. But I can't find it at all now in Arlington, Alexandria, VA. It has been replaced by the Coke from Mexico with HFCS. So if anyone knows of a place in nearby Maryland, specifically, that has it, I'd be grateful if you would post that here. Many thanks.

Have you actually drank this stuff? Because alot of the Mexican Coke that is brought in by third party distributors has labels that they just copied the US ingredients onto. I am currently drinking a bottle of the non-retornable Mexican Coke that comes in a shrinkwrapped case of 12 oz glass and the sticker states "Suger" with a phone # for consumer information. If you are still finding retornable bottles (somewhat rare in Michigan now) odds are it was brought in by a 3rd party distrubutor and their sticker may not be strictly accurate.

Check the tiny ingredient printing on the bottle cap. If it says azucar, don't sweat what the third-party label says. I've never found the bottle cap to be wrong.
