Passover Coke v. Regular Coke

Newer Older

During Passover, Coke makes a special version of Coke sweetened with sucrose rather than high-fructose corn syrup.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Passover: why is this group different? why four cups? why matzo?, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

    My favorite time of year, when all the goyim ask. Why is this coke different from all other cokes?

    To which one might best reply: "it's the sugar, shugah!" .. maybe that only works here in Atlanta, the home of Coke ...

    Is there a taste difference between the two?

  5. The Gifted Photographer 106 months ago | reply

    In April of 1985, the Coca-Cola company announced that it was re-formulating its flagship carbonated drink, which to the horror of Coke fans everywhere, included a switchover to high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Soon, the rest of the soft drink industry followed suit, and the classic taste of cane sugar-based sodas became practically extinct. Today, only a few small boutique soft drink companies still make sodas with refined cane sugar (or sucrose, made from sugar beets) a costly ingredient when compared with HFCS — but true carbonated beverage connoisseurs know and can tell the difference, as corn syrup has a characteristically cloying sweetness when compared to refined sugar. For nostalgic Coca-Cola lovers, unless you live in a foreign country that classic taste is but a distant memory.

    There is a taste difference. See my description and my blind test.

    There is very definitely a PRICE difference!

    Where I got it, there was no price difference. I doubt there would be since Coca-Cola's stance is that the sugar doesn't taste any different and so they consider it an equivalent product.
