Drink of the Week: The Real Thing - Yellow Cap Coke

Hey kids, there is still time to get your hands on this years batch of Coca-Cola made with real sugar, AKA - Yellow Cap Coke.

This version is only available for one week a year, so stock up.

Why is this of interest?

For the last 20+ years, Coke has been formulated with high fructose corn syrup as a cost saving measure.

This version - to meet Kosher for Passover requirements - harkens back to the (more natural) Coke of yesteryear. (Or, apparently Coke bottled in Mexico, where it is still made this way.)

If you are old enough to have tasted Coke before they went with corn syrup, this will really be a treat. The sweetness is less cloying, the flavors, crisper, and the overall experience, a nice flash-back.



I just love this stuff. I buy a few bottles to last me through the summer.
I'll have to get some. Nothing like Coke with lemon.

Just returned from Yucatan and enjoyed a bottle while there. I agree it's refreshier than our normal version. Rots the hell out of the teeth however, so we take it with moderation, no?

Thanks for keeping up your terrific blog.
I've been watching for this stuff for weeks and haven't seen it! What's wrong with me? Now I have to kill another year!
