Kosher for Passover Coke

    Newer Older

    Coca-Cola Classic with the telltale yellow cap and the Hebrew "Kosher for Passover" ("Kosher lapesach") text. The circled-U symbol is for the Union of Orthodox Rabbis, and generally marks a Kosher product. The -P apparently signifies that it's not just Kosher, but Kosher for Passover.

    Kosher for Passover Coke is made with sugar, rather than corn syrup, which is cheaper and sweeter. Made with sugar once a year so observant Jews can still drink Coke (corn isn't Kosher for Passover), the soda is actually the formula from before the mid '80s, when the "New Coke" fiasco occurred.

      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.

      Does it taste better?

      It does indeed!!

      Real sugar always tops corn syrup ...

      Yup, there's a very noticeable difference in taste. It's a little more bitter, and I like it that way!

      a bit lemony ... and that is great!

      thanks to this picture and caption I discovered why my coke tasted so weird! I agree with The Gifted Photographer that it tastes lemony. At first I double checked the bottle to make sure I hadn't grabbed that Lime Coke. I don't really like it though. Bring back the non-Kosher coke!!!
