El Cosa Real?

I'm not much of a soda drinker. But some of the grocery stores around here carry Coca Cola that is bottled in Mexico, and my inner food snob sometimes can't resist bringing home a bottle. Supposedly this stuff tastes different because they use sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. The funny thing is, since I never drink regular Coke I can't even tell if it tastes any better. Oh well, it's still a cool-looking bottle. But now I'm remembering why I quit buying this stuff more often - I get a headache every time I drink it. Maybe if I blog about it I won't forget next time.

I love Coke~so I probably could tell the difference. Weird thing about me I only like soda in a can. Warm. Having a good weekend?

B - It's good to see you again!

N - My weekend is going OK except for the fact that that Coke gave me a monster headache. I had to take 2 pills for it, which I almost never do. Although I think skipping lunch yesterday probably didn't help either!

My beverage of choice! Like it best in a bottle, plastic one of course. No can for me and room temperature please.

Coke...I used to drink it way back when my dad had the Burger Chefs. No more. I don't drink any kind of soda, exception is ginger ale every once in awhile. My hubby gets headaches too after drinking the stuff. Needless to say we don't have it in the house. The bootle is very nicely designed. Coke did one thing right.

The bottle cap photo is the best one, love that. I don't like soda much either anymore. It doesn't do anything for thirst or quenching, the only time I like it is when I'm sick.

I love love the bottle cap photo. It's perfect. Just wish I liked Coke! Or soda in general... I stick to alcohol and water.

Funny - I love Dublin Dr. Pepper, but I freaking hate that Mexican Coke over regular coke. It's flat and it has a funk taste. I think about the water that might be used and as opposed to Dublin Dr. Peppers - well, I'm not going to elaborate.

I don't really drink coke anyway, at least not in the coca cola sense of the word. I was going to say they're too sweet. But how anyone who is sipping on a Vanilla Root Beer with xtra vanilla can say anything is too sweet is beyond me, so I'll shup.
