If you think Coke tastes different this week, you may be right

If you think that can of Coke tastes different this week, you might be right.
It's the real thing, kosher for Passover Coke is. Just take a look at the label and it's right there in black and red.

After water, the second ingredient is sugar. That's real sugar. Sugar from sugar cane or sugar beets, not the high-fructose corn syrup the company has used since late '80s.

It's also got a rich caramel taste, a clean, clear finish on the palate and it really pops on the back of the tongue. The problem is, you can only buy it two weeks every year.

The days when one could drink real Coke are gone. Its not available where I live so I get by during Pesach on fruit juice and orange juice. At other times of the year, its not an issue but high fructose corn syrup is leavened and leaves the soft drink with a "dead" feeling. (Hence it can't be consumed during the holiday.) If its made with pure sugar, the taste is decidedly different - like Coke used to be before the ingredient was switched in the 1980s. For those lucky enough to get "Passover Coke" that's the real thing, alright. Too bad its just produced two weeks a year.

These guys make the product, or at least they used to. I think they probably still do.
