    I don't drink Coke but was on tour in Mexico a few years ago and my band mates bought some and said it was way better than USA Coke.

    I was just being a tool! Sorry.....actually Mexican Coke is favored by many. I have a friend in the beverage industry, and he swears by Mexican Coke for his special mixed Cola drinks. It's supposed to have a bit more vanilla taste or something.....Not at all like the Vanilla Coke that came out, but a much more subtle flavour.

    It's way better than US Coke... I would say 80% why because it has sugar instead of HFCS and 20% because of the glass bottle...

    Also here's a thread I started a while back on the subject...

    I agree with fast98dodge. All the big sodas that started using sugar a couple of years ago taste better to me. Mt. Dew, pepsi (even though i loathe the stuff, it is manageable with real sugar), and I think Dr. Pepper had one as well.

    Mexican Coke takes the cake though with the glass bottle. Drinks always taste better to me out of a glass bottle. Probably a combo of no plastic flavor being absorbed by the soda and it reminds me of when I was a kid and we would get cokes in 6 packs, they were like 12 oz bottles i think and i use to get to shove them down the return shute at our kroger. Early to mid 80's.

    yep - my favourite soft drink manufacturer needs to give the people what they want and go back to real Coca-Cola with real sugar in a real bottle!

    Agreed. I would love to have Diet Dr. Pepper in a glass bottle. That is my beverage of choice now days.

    that's the thing about the Coca-Cola image (and it being my favourite, I guess) is that I can't even remember what the bottles looked like for non-Coca-Cola sodas!

    http://wheretofindmexicancoke.com/

    Found this out there. Not sure this is every place to find it, but in looking at this thread, I was curious where I could find it near me. I'm not a huge Coke fan compared to when I was growing up. But this peaks my interest. May go pick some up.

    I miss glass bottles. I hate the way things taste coming out of plastic. It's probably a mental thing, but it just seems like everything tastes better coming out of glass.
