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.
Have you ever had a Mexican Coke? No!?!? Stop reading this, go out, and buy one! What did you think? Sound off in the comments below.
