We all have our guilty pleasures. Mine is Mexican Coca-Cola. I like to enjoy one on Sunday afternoons. I don’t drink them any other time, so it is a special treat that I look forward to at the end of my weekend. I drink these for 3 reasons:
1. Childhood Nostalgia
2. It comes in a glass bottle so I don’t have to be concerned with the chemicals from the plastic
3. It contains real sugar, NOT high fructose corn syrup
I got up extra early today. So, I decided to open my Coke a little earlier than normal. My first sip, BLAH! It tasted completely different. What happened to my Sunday treat?? I looked at the ingredients label and where it once said “sugar,” it now says “high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar.” Mine clearly did not contain “and/or sugar.” What the hell does “and/or sugar” mean anyway?
I DO NOT consume high fructose corn syrup. I have some serious objections with this so called sugar. I guess I will have to find another guilty pleasure…
