    Default HFCS and/or Sugar in ingredients list?

    I have recently seen many bottles of pop that have "high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar" in the list of ingredients. Is there any way to tell if the pop inside is sweetend with sugar instead of HFCS?

    I thought that type of listing was banned by the government in recent years and the product now needs to list specific sweeteners used.
    Which brands are listing the ingredients this way? Coke, Pepsi, and Dr Pepper/Snapple products, or are these smaller, local brands?

    I recently purchased the following sodas carrying the HFCS and/or Sugar designation:

    Moxie 8 oz. can - Canned by Cro-Pac - Worcester, MA

    Moxie 12 oz. can - Canned by Coca-Cola Bottling of Northern New England - Londonderry, NH

    ShopRite 12 oz. can - store brand soda, assorted flavors.

    Looking through a couple ingredient lists I have...

    Ale-8-One - "sugar and/or corn sweetener"

    Ski - "sugar and/or corn sweeteners"

    Dr. Wells - "high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar"

    Maybe the HFCS and or sugar is a marketing ploy?
    I will say that the generic soda pops that have
    "HFCS and or sugar" tend to taste way better than
    the "HFCS" ones.
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba

    I was at the market tonight and noticed that Dr. Brown's sodas are also listed as High Fructose Corn Syrup and/or Sugar.
