Thursday, March 22, 2007Yep, you heard me.
I have 24 cans of it in the trunk of my car as I type this.
Coke...REAL coke...with SUGAR instead of High fructose corn syrup.
How did I manage that, you ask?
Apparently the Coca-cola company puts out "Kosher Coke" each year before the Passover season. (I never knew corn wasn't kosher, but apparently it's not.) They release Coke made with sucrose instead of HFCS in areas of high Jewish population in 2 liter bottles and six-packs of cans.
I spent all morning calling around to the grocery stores in the two suburbs that have high Jewish populations and while most of them were already sold out, I found a Kosher market that had just received a shipment.
So into the car went Elnora, Emmitt and I and off to Bexley we drove.
Cost me $3.29 per six-pack, but I came home with four of them. I'll just have to spread them out so they last me a few months.
Mmmm....Coke that doesn't break my HFCS ban.
Incidentally, I've also learned that many Mexican groceries carry Mexican coke, which is also made with sugar instead of HFCS...even comes in glass bottles.
