    Yes, yes, and yes! If you got to drink soda, Mexican Coke is the best (real sugar).

    Cheers,

    Does Mexico prohibit HFCS in bevies? Or is sugar just cheaper/more readily available?

    Passover Coca-Cola has real sugar too. It has a yellow cap instead of a red one.

    Cheaper, we only use high fructose corn syrup because we happen to be by far the largest producer of corn in the world.

    Oh yeah quality control is a joke BTW:

    Snapped this when I noticed my grocer started carrying bebidas.

    But I remember the old 5 cent coke machine with the pull handle and the canvas flap covering the opening.

    Coke in real glass botles yes, but it stopped being the real thing long before my time.

    But the rumor lingered that any bottle with a red star on it meant yuo were still getting coke in your cola.

    The machines with the 6-1/2 once bottles were a dime.

    I was in Jamaica a while back and they had those with real sugar at the little store across the street from our hotel. We drank loads of them over the course of the week and my wife and I laughed about our coke binge.

    In the late 1990s, Safeway and Fred Meyer's had their generic colas in machines for $.25 and .35.

    When I was growing up we had a party line until I was middle school age (though to be fair, it was the sticks and was the late 80's/early 90's when we got our own dedicated line). But yeah, I remember a time before cigarette vending machines were outlawed too (though someone recently told me they might not be everywhere).
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Heck,

    When I was in college in the early 70s we got our hands on an old coke machine. The setup for the money was hardwired to accept 10 cents. Put in a dime it went over a sensor and you got a coke. Nickles were over a rocker mechanism so that every other one triggered the same sensor. A quarter triggered that sensoa and one for getting you 3 nickles back.

    A bit of work and it only accpeted quarters and we ahd a beer machine!

    I remember collecting those bottles and returning them to the convenience store for deposits. The small bottles were worth 10 cents, the larger ones were worth 20 cents. Comic books at the time cost 35 cents, and a regular candy bar was 20 cents. My allowance at the tine was a measly $1 per week, so a little bottle hunting and lawn mowing were necessary to make ends meet.

    Nope.

    It's only cheaper because of government subsidies and because bottlers know that people will consume more beverages if they are sweetened with HFCS... it bypasses the receptor in your brain that tells you that you have had enough sugar so you keep drinking more and more.

    Woolworth's. And no matter what woolworth's store you entered, no matter where it was, they all smelled the same.
