Favorite Things: Mexican Coke

Mexican Coke

Seeing the words Made in America makes my heart swell with pride. I can’t help but think of the hard-working men and women who made this country great and the amazing goods we’ve manufactured right here throughout our nation’s history.

The words Hecho en Mexico, however, often conjure up different imagery—I think of cheap souvenirs and the gift to the world that is Mexican Coke.

I’m not a huge soda drinker and I usually prefer a root beer over a cola. However, there’s just something about that real (cane) sugary goodness of a Mexican Coke that I find undeniably refreshing. It tastes so good! That’s why a nice cold (glass) bottle of Mexican Coke is one of my favorite things.

    I’ve completely lost that pride. And will not be getting it back.

    And with that off my chest, I will have to try one of these.

      Definitely give one a try — you won’t regret it! Better yet, give yourself a “blind taste test” and let me know which you prefer.

    My daughter lived in Mexico for a while and the word was the reason Mexican Coke taste better than US Coke is that they use real sugar instead of corn syrup like we do. Enjoy!
