Cold refreshment not illegal drugs

Filed under: Adventure,Hilights,Move — by Alison @ 4:08 pm

I’ve mentioned before that I one of my favourite discoveries in Seattle has been Mexican Coke. When Lara asked me what exactly it was and set me a link that extolls roller skating over drugs, I realized I should set the record straight.

The move to the Pacific Northwest has not led me to illegal narcotics. Just wonderful sugar filled glass bottles of deliciousness.

Mexican Coke, fresh from the store.

This is pure cane sugar (no HFCS) 355 mL coke bottles. With the lovely green glass. It’s bottled in Mexico, and the store labels it as Mexican Coke. There is something so much more satisfying drinking Coke from a glass bottle: there’s less carbonation, it keeps it temperature better, I feel like I belong with the Outsiders (without the violence).

I don’t usually drink a lot of soft drinks, but this beverage is so delicious that we’ve had to limit the number we buy to 3 a week. And if I keep up with my getting healthy plan, I think I’ll have to cut back even more.

But for now, I’ll make sure there are a few of these in our recycling every week.


  1. lol – I’m glad it’s all on the up and up 🙂

    • It is hard to recycle them, I wish I could think of an actual use for them.

  4. ohh Mexican Pepsi! Last year they had Pepsi Throwback, which was the same deal. It was sweetened with REAL sugar. I keep hoping it comes back. Huge taste difference.

    • There is Mexican Pepsi and Throwback Pepsi here. I may pick some up next time I’m at the grocery store for a little taste comparison.
