Mexican Coke Switching To Corn Syrup

In what is terrible news for anyone who loves delicious Coke, Mexican Coca Cola is switching from delicious cane sugar to disgusting high fructose corn syrup. The move comes to save money after the Mexican congress imposed a tax on sodas to try and combat the Mexican obesity epidemic. Mexico is currently the fattest country in the world. The problem is that this is only going to make the problem worse. Studies have shown that while sugar isn’t great for you, it’s better than the processed glop they put in high fructose corn syrup. That’s because cane sugar is natural and easy for the body to digest. When they process the corn in order to make the corn syrup it makes it more difficult for your body to process. So, it basically just makes your ass bigger.

Until the 1980’s Cokes in the U.S. were made with cane sugar too. The switch came because making soda with high fructose corn syrup is cheaper than using sugar thanks in large part to government subsidies in corn production. The last chance any of us had to taste what REAL Coke tasted like was through Mexican Coke. If you haven’t tried it, while you still can, go to your nearest bodega or Latino supermarket and buy some Mexican Coke. It tastes drastically different. There is a sharp bite to it that the corn syrup variety lacks. I’m going to be stockpiling bottles like the apocalypse is coming. Well…at least we still have Jarritos.
