Coca Cola - In A GLASS Bottle

Coke in a can is mundane - Coke in a glass bottle, is special.

When we were almost home from our big walk yesterday, we were in need of some liquid sustenance. There was a Mexican grocery store on our route and I seemed to have remembered spotting something special in there the last time I stopped in...Coca Cola in GLASS BOTTLES.

This soda cost $1.35 - and the three of us enjoyed it. The kids, growing up with the lame cans, had a bit of trouble sipping the soda from the bottle...but thought it was cool!

They also had larger glass bottles that sold for close to $5.00.

How I wish that all sodas would revert back to glass bottles! It DOES taste better!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
And you're write, coke in a bottle tastes so much better. When I went to Mexico years ago we drank tons of it there. It was awesome!

In Ethiopia this past Spring, we had Coke in glass bottles for 2 weeks, it was awesome! You can't beat a bottle of ice cold Coke (for a dime no less)!

If I may, after so much time: Coca-Cola in Mexico is made from real cane sugar as opposed to high-fructose corn syrup as in the United States. That may account for the taste difference.

For those who remember US Coke in glass bottles tasting different "back in the day", it wasn't until sometime in the 80s (70s?) that the switch to HFCS was made.

Just my 3¢. Thanks for the memories.
