I'm thinking it's because you can't read.

The better question is why did they get rid of Vanilla Coke last year do to "poor sales" and bring it back this year?

D'oh!

I always do that. And for some reason I type "like" when I mean "there". It's very odd.

Coke with sugar >> Coke with corn syrup.

The difference in quality is astounding. Whenever I go out of the States, I drink a ton of coke, whereas I drink almost none while in the States.

Saccharin is usually what makes them taste like shit. That "sugar free bubblegbum" aftertaste.

The taste doesn't bother me much. I'd much rather have that aftertaste than those calories.

Vanilla Coke is like fucking crack. Almost beats out my favorite Dr. Pepper. But the real soda I want them to bring back is Pepsi Lime. Was more of a Pepsi person anyway.

QFT.

One of the great advantages of being near the border.

However, Canadian Cokes are just as good, if not better. Be sure to drink them there too.

So you're saying I've been conned all this time?! Damn you!

Yeah, you're right, i totally forgot the label change, it's even in little kiddy writing. I guess it's not sponsored by Mafia gangsters anymore.

Seriously, check your local Mexican market. Most sell Mexican cokes made with real sugar instead of HFCS. I think some Costco stores even sell the Mexican cokes!

Problem with mexican cokes is they only come in glass bottles near me and I like cans. Anyways wjhat made me start this thread was the Splenda coke which doesn't have the aftertaste but is just way too sweet...

Hmm. So what's up with Mexican coke? Being in NJ, clearly I don't have easy access to Mexico :( What makes it so good?

Also, splenda = win.
Anything else..such as equal or sweet 'n low..yuck!! That sacchrin (sp?) is terrible.

Vanilla Coke was my favorite soda ever. I haven't seen one in a long time.

The reason artifical sweetners taste awful is because it's a bastadization of God's creation of sugar. Or something like that.

All I want is some Surge. That stuff tasted like melted green popsicles. Vault is the closest I've tasted but it's still nowhere near as good.

How crap like Mountain Dew still gets sold while Surge vanished is beyond me.

It uses actual sugar instead of corn syrup.

Find a mexican market if you can. Otherwise go to Walmart and try to see if you can find coke in glass bottles. That's most likely Mexican Coke. There might even be an "International" Aisle they'd be in.

Try other stores and maybe even some convenience shops also.

If you get ,desperate I'm sure a CAG would hook you up. :p

Saccharin is usually what makes them taste like shit. That "sugar free bubblegbum" aftertaste.

There are no major-brand sodas made with Saccharin. Nearly all are Aspartame (Nutra-Sweet), though a few (Diet RC, Diet Rite, certain versions of Diet Coke) are made with the far-superior Splenda.

I use Splenda at home almost exclusively. For coffee, iced tea, etc. My wife even bakes with it 90% of the time. Tastes great.

As for diet sodas, the Aspartame-sweetened ones with the least offensive taste IMO are Diet Coke/Pepsi with Lime, Dr. Pepper (especially vanilla), and Mountain Dew Code Red (actually better than regular IMO, same taste, no gross syrupy stickyness).

But every year around passover I head to a grocery store in one of the Jewish neighborhoods and score some Kosher Coke. Mmmmmm 100% pure cane sugar goodness. Last year Meijer even stocked 2-liters of Kosher Pepsi. We got some, but it doesn't match up to the Coke. Goose Island Rootbeer is also made with cane sugar, and is fucking awesome for those who can get it (I live in chicago, so I'm golden :)).

Kosher Coke, I never even thought about that. Fucking brilliant.

All this talk about foreign Cokes has piqued my interest. Here's hoping my Wal-Mart has some Mexican Coke.

For those of you saying "Mexican Coke FTW," keep in mind that it's basically all Coke outside the US (I've had Coke in 6 countries outside of the US, 4 of them overseas, and they're all made with sugar -- and amazing).
Mexican Coke is just easier to get here in the States.
