    If You're Looking For Coca Cola Made With Real Sugar

    .....Be on the lookout right now for bottles with the yellow caps. Coke makes a limited amount with real sugar this time of year, as it is kosher for Passover (I think cause HFCS is considered levened). Probably have a week or two to find and stock up.

    Colas Associated With Increased Risk of Kidney Disease

    Drinking 2 or more colas per day was associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Results were the same for regular colas and artificially sweetened colas . Noncola carbonated beverages were not associated with chronic kidney disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3433753/

Does it have to be made in Mexico? I understand about the regular sugar ones being better than the ones with aspartame, but I seem...
