Ahhh, Coke from before 85. No not 26 year old bottles, the same flavor and recipe that we North of the Border have been missing for a long time.
Where am I going with this? Well remember when Coke launched it's new flavor in 85 with a huge media buzz and a contest to win a new sports car and the drink was branded "New Coke"? Hell I was a wee tot and I remember. New Coke was a little sweeter then the old kind but still good and some say it tasted more like Pepsi. Well it was a hit and people did like it but many hated that they're flavor of Coke got shelved completely for the new flavor and after 3 months, the old Coke was back and dubbed Coca Cola Classic and New Coke was, well Coke and it stuck around with various names, including "Coke II" till 2002 and some countries still have it. Coca Cola however made it's comeback right!? No, there was a change. Coca Cola Classic, the kind we have been drinking since 85 in the states was different. It had that dreaded corn syrup instead of sugar.
What has been dubbed "Mexican Coke" due to being bottled and printed in Mexico and now imported into most grocery stores and Wal-Marts up here in the states is the original and classic SUGAR powered Coke drink from the early 80's that many of us grew up drinking and loving. Think of it as "Coke Throwback" the way Pepsi and now 7 up have been doing with the old sugar instead of corn syrup flavoring.
It may be a tad steep at a $1 to $1.30 a bottle for that CLASSIC GREEN tinted bottle that you can find in grocery displays with Sprite and Fanta, but if you want that genuine Coke flavor with the real stuff in it, then look for it or ask in your local grocery store. Very retro and very Awesome.
