Mexican Coke Review

A few years ago, one of my friends told me about a magical brew of Coca-Cola that was produced in Mexico. Unlike Coke made in the United States, he said, this Coca-Cola was made with real sugar and was much better than the domestic product I was used to. I eventually was able to track some bottles down in a local gas station and decided to give it a shot. Now, a few years later, I’ve purchased some more Mexican Coke in order to review it. The reason that I finally decided to review Mexican Coke is due to a recent article I read where they did a blind taste test of Mexican Coke and regular Coke. As the taste test showed, most people actually preferred the flavor of regular Coke over Mexican Coke. Maybe we’re just used to it so that’s why we prefer it? Like my friend told me, Mexican Coke is made with real sugar rather than high-fructose corn syrup that has become the norm in the United States. Mexican Coke is very delicious, but I have to disagree with my friend in one way. While it’s a great soda, it really isn’t that much better than the regular Coke that I’m used to. It’s different, but not necessarily better. Mexican Coke doesn’t taste quite as syrupy as the regular variety which helps bring out the natural Coca-Cola flavor. Mexican Coke can be hard to track down, so if you have the opportunity, I definitely recommend picking some up. It’s different than regular Coke, but just as good. It’s hard to improve upon perfection, right?
