@roger,
people who are ignorant about statistics yet who talk about them ignorantly have the intelligence of a carrot, which is somewhat below the moron level, so yes.

sorry, late night, i overreacted, but you really don't need 330.000,000 people to get an accurate read on public opinion. For a country the size of the US, mathematically a sample size around a thousand will do it.

@mark noble,
Ah, yes, Coca=Cola, that world-renowned Mexican soft drink. Bring back fond memories... I remember years ago when I was hitchhiking across Mexico and I stopped at a roadside taco stand for lunch, big Coke sign out front, and the son of the proprietor, maybe eight years old, asked me if we had Coca-Cola in los Estados Unidos, and I assured him that yes we did.

@MontereyJack,
Mexican Coke is better, and you can actually taste the difference. It's made with real sugar and is distinctly more expensive.

Never had it so I can't say, but if it's sweeter, I won't like it.

If they use "real sugar" in Mexico what do they use in the US. I know it's not "fake sugar"

I remember Mexican Coke from a younger day, It is much like the Coke I drank back in the 50s, before they began tinkering with the recipe.

You took the words right out of my mouth - figuratively speaking, of course.

I am wondering when they started putting corn syrup in everything instead of sugar and if there is any connection with rising type 2 diabetes? At least sweet tea you can make yourself with regular sugar.

I tried the newly available Mexican Coca Cola once, and found it way too sweet. No idea if it then had sugar in it or corn syrup. But - I'm one of those that lost a fair bit of my sweet tooth over time, which I consider a good thing, not done quite on purpose, say from reading articles against too much sugar, but from traveling to a place that used way less sugar in its food. Came back to Los Angeles, and found all sorts of stuff too sicky sweet, so it was easy for me to decrease it in my cooking or restaurant ordering. I still like it once in a while - buy a small bottle of maple syrup once every year or two, but my sugar load has much diminished.

@ossobuco,
I haven't drunk Coke for many decades because of the sugar content. Used to drink a few bottles every day when I was in the USAF with peanuts. The air force is also where I learned to drink beer and the hard stuff. Also used to smoke a couple of packs of cigarettes a day (got it pretty cheap), but most of it burned out on the ash tray. Even smoked a couple of cigars during my four years in the air force. The last cigar I had was in Cuba.

@ossobuco,
I have an addicting personality, used to do all kinds of things, I really need to start watching my sugar and for the most part I have cut down, (border line with spikes on diabetes..) but I love sweet tea. Tried it without sugar, it was terrible. As for cokes, it is acid which gets me, burns my stomach.

I have raspberry iced tea, and have it when they offer it. It adds enough sweetness.
It has 2.9g of sugar. I don't think that's bad.

Stay away from Coke Zero, then. I've a strong suspicion they pack in extra phosphoric acid to make up for not having anything in it except caramel coloring.

@roger,
Yeah, plus I watched a documentary on the internet. apparently your body don't recognize unnatural foods (such as sugar substitutes) and stores it as fat; so your suffering horrible taste for nothing. Might explain why a lot of overweight people drink diet coke. Kills me when I see somebody ordering a whole McDonalds meal with a diet coke. I think to myself, why?

How did this subject come up anyway? Just wondering.

The bottom line. High fructose corn syrup is cheaper than refined sugar. For all of the bad press that fructose has gotten, it's the sugar found in fruit. What's bad about it is that people consume way too much of it. There's nothing inherently dangerous about it.

@InfraBlue,
Yes, but which one has more calorie content? I am betting it is the fructose corn syrup. But I'll look it up later.
