    Default Passover Coke 2008

    For the past two years I have posted about Passover Coke. As in the past here is a quick rundown for anyone who doesn't know, why many people get excited over this

    I am already getting excited for Passover Coke. If anyone doesn't know what it is, it is when Coke starts to produce Coke with REAL sugar instead of HFCS. They do this for the Jewish holiday of Passover, which you are not allowed to eat certain food items such as corn syrup, because of this Coke produces Coca-Cola and Sprite in 2L and sometimes in cans that have real sugar in it. You can tell Passover Coke from Regular Coke because it has yellow caps and has a KP on it or another kosher symbol with a P after it. They usually only produce them around cities with a fairly large Jewish population but most fairly big cities in the US (New York, Chicago, LA, Miami, etc.) have them.
    Passover this year starts on April 20th so start looking during the next few weeks!

    To clarify a few things brought up in past years:
    1. Throughout the whole year, corn syrup is kosher and therefore most sodas are kosher. Passover coke doesn't mean that it is now kosher- it means that it is able to be consumed on passover. See Chametz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more information
    2. As in past years the only major sodas that are Kosher for Passover are:Coke, Sprite, Pepsi and Sierra Mist, as well as some diet varieties of these, although the diet passover versions are the same as the regular versions throughout the year
    3. You probably will not have to go into a special Jewish store to find it, although it can be helpful
    4. In past years cans of it have been sold in 6 packs NOT 12 packs
    5. No mycokerewards last year

    Any one with any questions post them and ill gladly respond!

    Is it typically sold at major grocery stores? Is it more expensive? Is in the Kosher section usually?

    Here in the DC-Baltimore corridor you find the KFP Coke in 2L bottles everyplace from supermarkets to convenience stores to delis - almost anyplace soda is sold. The harder to find KFP sodas (Sprite, Pepsi etc.) are usually only found in parts of town with a significant Jewish population (e.g., Pikesville, MD, or the Park Heights Section of Baltimore). They are generally mixed in with the regular Coke/Pepsi products, but are sometimes in with a Passover display if the store has one. They are the same price as the regular product in the 2L bottles, which is the only way we get it here.
    With thousands of sodas available for the choosing, why drink just one or two?

    The UPC ok KP Coke is the same as regular Coke, so it will ring up at the same price. This also allows the warehouses to ship KP stuff to any store, and clear out any remaining stock after Passover.

    The difference is in the ordering system, where the salesperson can specifically order KP stuff.

    As well, do a Google search of local Jewish temples/synagogues. Call a few and
    ask for help. I would also go to a good chain grocery store and ask around (soda pop route men/women,store mangager ect). Finding KP soda pop is like a big scavenger hunt. You have to work every angle. LOL
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba
