I just watched an ad on the telly, it included the line "made with real natural sugar." I'd probably buy it but I didn't catch what the product is.

@dyslexia,
My favorite health food additive is "organic cane juice". Anyone else remember the "brown and raw" sugar craze of the late 70's? If it's brown and raw it must be good for you. Right?

@dyslexia,
It's a reactionary market ploy to separate their products from their competiters who still might use high fructose corn syrup. Good idea if the product is actually worth buying in the first place.

@dyslexia,
If I had my druthers, I would use real natural sugar. But, with my health problems, I am obliged to select stevia instead. But it tastes fine, so I ain't bitching.

@dyslexia,
I guess it is. I've only had possibly five soft drinks this year. The last two were Mexican Coke (and that's Coca Cola, before you ask) which were made with sugar. I swear you could taste the difference.

It were made with cocaine, hence the name.

@roger,
Of course one can taste the difference between high fructose syrup and sugar cane.

The best sodas are sweetened with sugar cane: Boylans for instance. There are a couple of other well known independent soda makers but I'm having a brain cramp now.

I found a local source for the Boylan's Cola made with cane sugar. Quite a taste difference from the colas made with HFCS. Good thing it's expensive enough to keep me from buying it more than very very occasionally.

@tsarstepan,
Boomer had a good thread featuring the soda savant - he had a good representation of the better quality sodas.

@ehBeth,
I remember that legendary thread with its accompanied mid-length documentary link.

((sigh)) Good times! Good times!

I remember living in Mexico for awhile and the only sugar available there
(granulated) was the brownish raw, sugar and I enjoyed it. It came in
big 10 or 15 pound whopper bags for very cheap price. When I returned
to the States I was surprised to see that same "raw cheap sugar" cost
twice as much for a small container here as did the white refined stuff
that has been the American staple for ages. I have not been a
connoisseur of soda varieties for quite some time as it takes me 3
months to successfully drop a tiny extra weight here & , but my
grandson tells me that one of our local mini markets on the island
here actually sells some of those old fashioned really good sodas I
enjoyed as a kid. (in bottles too, I like soda better in bottles)
