Actually, I know a person who has an extremely large stash of bottled Coke from Mexico, however he is so addicted to it that he doesn't want to share. I guess that means something.

I'll have to give it a shot sometime.

Coca Cola made in Mexico uses sugar, not corn syrup... just had one myself, yum (I rarely drink coke)!

Yep, real sugar Coke bottled in Mexico, the best. For us old folk, the way it used to be before corn syrup took over. Here in SoCal, aka, "Northern Mexico" it easy to purchase, a quick run to the local mexican owned store, also the place for the best homemade Tamales!

Damn You SnakeyGirl!
Tamales are easy to find here.
Empenadas are easy to find here,
Posole. no way.
Good Red Chile? Nope, gotta cook my own, they use Santa Ana brown chile pods here. Not the delicious New Mexico Red Chile pods!

BGnR, you're really making me hungry! I love posole when it's done right. Red chile - I've developed a liking for carne adovada. Don't forget about the chile rellenos and sopaipillas though!

Isn't Coke bottled in Mexico made with water from Mexico?

I have heard that Hawiian Coke is great for the same reason - sugar.

Corona? There's much better beers to be drunk in Mexico... and then there's the mezcal/tequila!

Damn You Again!!
Sopaipillas are from the Dineh (Navajo) tribes, and the Spanish settlers melding of foods and aren't available here!
Again, I have to make them myself.
Yes folks, the foods are different, way different!

mexican coronas seem to be better, sort of like the coke thing.

i do like others, but corona really has a great aftertaste when it is hot out. negra modelo is nice, but too heavy. tecate is only okay. dos/tres equis is also a bit heavy.

Actually, I often find myself drinking Superior beers when I'm there - developed a taste for it when I was travelling there and too poor to afford anything else. When we were there a few weeks ago I had a new kinda beer, but for the life of me can't remember the name of it. Plus, after the tequila, who cares smiling smiley Which may be why I don't remember the name of the beer. LOL. Not really much of a beer drinker, anyway, unless it's some kind of microbrew or European, esp. Belgian. Mmmm! Can't wait to make it back in the summer - tho the influx of Mexican taco wagons and restaurants here is a very welcome addition to town (not that I'm complaining about the the local cuisine, hardly, just miss authentic Mexican food).

Jamie,

La Cocina on Clark street just south of Van Buren has the mexican bottled variety. Their (real) gorditas are awesome too.

If you're ever down in those parts, say, on an Apple Store research mission for OWC.

I prefer tacos to tamales. At Karlitas on the corner $2 for either and you get a lot more with the tacos. Also tamales to me seem a little dry. We have Mexican markets all over San Jose and they all have kitchens. Got to try that Mexican Coke.

Wow. I didn't think you could get Coke with sugar again. But if it's bottled in Mexico don't they use mexican water - where they say you're not supposed to drink the water?

Another great little secret from a longtime Atlantan:

At Passover time, many Coca-Cola bottlers create a small batch of Kosher-For-Passover Coca-Cola - with real sugar!

Most years it can be identified with yellow caps. Only in groceries for a few weeks, and in-the-know cola fans hunt it down like dogs.

Ah, but when tamales are done right, they're FAR from dry. I prefer the ones we have out here. We have more than just the pork & red chile variety. I love the ones made with green chile and cheese.

Part of the reason Mexico used sugar is because there was a 20% tax on high-fructose corn syrup. The tax was challenged in the WTO and Mexico can no longer apply the tax. Look for real sugar Coke to be a thing of the past.

The WTO lawsuit was pursued by republicans -- something else to blame on the current Administration...

Absolutely. Far superior to pedestrian tacos. Wrapped in corn husks, YUM!

There is a girl (isn't there always!) who shows up at a local Albertson's parking lot with a cooler in the truck of her car. In it is steamy water and lots of hot tamales-- beef, pork, chicken, and cheese. Really, really good! No license, of course. But tasty nonetheless.

And remember what Mel Blanc said about Tuesday?






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.
