    Yes it is here in Indianapolis from CCE. It has been brought in from CCE in Alexandria, VA in 2L PET. From the size of the displays I see it has been shipped in by the truck load. The sign at Kroger says, "Passover Coke, Limited Time Only, Original Sugar Cane Formula".

    I checked a few Krogers in Atlanta and I found the yellow cap 2L, but none that are KP. What color are the caps?

    The caps are yellow with a OU-P symbol. It is also printed with ink on the side under the expiration date: OU-PASSOVER. You may need to visit a largely Jewish area as that is where I find it here in select places in Indianapolis.

    Publix in Atlanta had 1(!) bottle of it. It was just randomly with the other 2-L's. Needless to say, I bought it. I really wish Coke would keep this version throughout the year.

    Coke and Pepsi are in this for a profit. Corn is subsidized by the American government to support American farmers, making corn products cheep. On the other hand I believe imported sugar has import tariffs on it. I could be wrong but I believe this to be the case.
    Most Americans have no idea that they are not using real sugar and couldn’t taste a difference if they did know. So the American public does not care and is not aware of the health issues surrounding HFCS. It’s all about the bottom line.
    In the rest of the world I believe they use sugar.

    We should also end the embargo with Cuba and again buy plenty of sugar from them. Is there still a bottler for Coke in North Dakota still using beet sugar in their drinks?
