Peruvian flake...Hmm musta heard that somewhere...
No need to explain to me. I grew up in Louisiana and every carbonated soft drink was a coke (even if it was a Pepsi).
I only buy Mexican Coke, by the case from Costco. It is so satisfying, as compared to the fake stuff made here in the U.S.
The fruit sodas were great also.
Yes! We have been drinking the Mexican Coca-Cola for years, but recently, our Walmart began carrying Fanta Orange, made w/sugar. It tastes like the old-fashioned Nehi orange soda of my childhood. If they also start carrying a grape soda, I will be in dietary trouble.
We split bottles of the real sugar soda and I don’t drink soda at all, usually.
You can order it online from the Edgar Casey folks. I can’t recall the name of their organization, but they sell straight cola syrup.
We used to freeze partial plastic bottles of Coke to get the concentrated syrup. You have to watch it and remove from the freezer when the clear water forms ice crystals and the brown syrup is still liquid. Do not try this with pressure-capped glass bottles.
Dr Pepper Original Formula; This one comes in the original "10-2-4" bottle and holds the "Original Formula" that made Dr Pepper a favorite back in 1891. Made with imperial pure cane sugar and lightly carbonated the smooth taste is different than todays Dr Pepper. [8 fl.oz]
Frostie Root Beer; A smooth and creamy Baltimore original. "Frostie man frostie", a Baltimore original. [12 fl. oz/355 mL]
INGREDIENTS: Carbonated Water, Cane Sugar, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate (A Preservative), Citric Acid, Natural And Artificial Flavors.
Readily available throughout Texas and known by the name of "Dublin Dr Pepper" -- the bottler in Dublin, TX who still makes it thatta way.
About forty miles down the road from me, as a matter of fact.
Yep. Coca-cola was originally a tonic that was mixed with water and ice. It wasn’t successful until a druggist accidently mixed the syrup with carbonated water. And the rest is history.
You popped the top off those 6 1/2 ounce bottles and chugged it down. It made your throat burn, but it was wonderful.
As I got older, I switched to Pepsi. You got 12 ounces for the same money and it had a sharper, sweeter taste. The Throwback Pepsi they sell today is good, but it isn't the same. Even the Mexican Pepsi isn't quite there.
I understand their Coke has real sugar, but does it also have mexican water?
Exactly. That’s why I refuse to drink Mexican beer.
I was convinced nobody could get sick from Halazone treated water, mostly because I didn’t believe anybody would drink it. I think I would prefer the parasites.
I have been seeing the throwback soft drinks - real sugar instead of that crappy HFCS. Kind of funny, when I was in Sweden last December, I had a coke and it tasted good but then HFCS is not used overseas like here. One main reason I don’t do soft drinks anymore because of HFCS.
As mentioned before, HFCS is not fit for human consumption and not many people know it is hard on your liver !
