Triple hat tip to Erin Geiger Smith for writing up this in-depth report about Mexican Coca Cola in the Sunday Times and for bringing this hard-core Mexican Coke song and this cool thing to our attention. Here is an excerpt from her report (emphasis ours):
MexiCoke, as it is also called, is imported from Mexico and is sweetened by pure cane sugar, rather than the corn syrup found in the American version. Devotees say it delivers a sugar-infused, caffeine-amplified buzz, which is a particular draw for stay-up-all-night coders, writers and musicians. For hard-core fans, it’s Mexican Coke or none at all.
To paraphrase the Dos Equis spokesman: We don’t always drink soda pop, but when we do, we prefer MexiCoke.
