The Pause that Refreshes

Ryan and I went to Costco today and we came home with a case of Coca-cola. Now ordinarily we would not buy soda at Costco. We have cut back on drinking sodas and it just isn't something we shop for....but today we were walking down the aisle and something caught Ryan's eye. "Hecho en Mexico" is written on the side of the case and they are GLASS bottles. Hmmmm Real Cane Sugar NOT High Fructose Corn Syrup! Wow. We were sold. We had to buy a case of Coke. :-)

I am not a huge Coke fan. I'm not like those people who will only drink Coke and not Pepsi or anything else. I will generally drink whatever cola drink is being offered. It never seems to matter to me. But Real Sugar instead of High Fructose Corn Syrup, that is something that I can understand! Will it taste different? Are our Cola palates sophisticated enough to appreciate the difference?

I do like the glass bottles and I swear it tastes better icy cold coming from a glass bottle than from plastic or a can! But that might be nostalgia talking. And then there is the adventure of purchasing a Coca-cola in a glass bottle in Honduras and having them pour it in a plastic bag for you to take away. Priceless! :-)
