Beet sugar represents 55% of sugar produced in the US with the heaviest production in Michigan, Minnesota, and North Dakota. Beet production is growing; cane sugar production is declining.

Soda from Mexico, in general just tastes better.

I didn't vote because I don't drink Coke - I drink Pepsi. But I understand the taste difference, because I prefer the Mexican Pepsi with sugar.

Mexican Coke >>>>>>>>>>> US Coke, IMHO...

I don't drink nearly as much soda as I used to these days, but when I do, I always spring for a Mexican Coke, or something else made with cane sugar (the choices are slim, but seem to be growing) - It just tastes far superior to me, and I feel satisfied drinking less of it than HFCS-sweetened soda.

Now, if only I could come across a cane sugar version of Cherry Coke in a glass bottle...I'd be one happy camper!

That's probably a good idea. There is an epidemic of diabetes all over the U.S. . Soda that's in a glass bottle tastes best to me also. There should probably be a poll on preferred packaging too, just for curiosity's sake. I wonder what percentage of people would agree with us.
