Drink Coca-Cola (Mexico)

Coca-Cola (Mexico)
a.k.a. Mexican Coke


20110607:
355 mL (12 FL OZ) Bottle.

Learning from enjoying a good beer, I inhaled the tip of the bottle. It smelt minty or like menthol. I'm leaning towards menthol. I wonder if this is what it usually smells like, I've never tried smelling it before. I wonder which of the ingredients gives it this smell? At first it looked like a lot of ingredients, but I realized half was English and half was Spanish:
Carbonated Water, Sugar, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavors, Caffeine.
Agua Carbonatada, Azucar, Color Caramelo, Acido Fosforico, Sabores Naturales, Cafeina.

The bottle seems flat in comparison to US Coca-Cola from a can or plastic bottle. Perhaps I got a bad bottle. I believe the sugar goes down more smoothly. Though I might be saying that just from knowing that the main difference between Mexican Coke and domestic Coke is the use of sugar versus high fructose corn syrup.

I've had Coca-Cola bottles in the past, but I'm pretty sure they were made in the US. The closest thing I got to a Mexican Coke is a Mexican Pepsi. I kept the bottle as a souvenir, I'll take a picture of it when I'm in CA and post it here.

I wrote: "Coca-Cola from Mexico. 355 mL. The real sugar goes down so easy! Yum."




I was later looking around and stumbled upon some half liter bottles of Mexican Coke! But since I already drank the above and had another stowed away, I wasn't prepared to buy a half liter bottle for $3.
