I was talking to the Coca-Cola rep yesterday and after I inquired was told that the Kosher Coke should be back in the stores next week in preparation for passover. In particular the HEB Alon Market and the HEB Plus at 1604 and Blanco Rd as these locations cater to the large Jewish community around them. Other locations may be getting it but it is usually a bit hard to find.

is there a difference between Kosher Coke and Mexican Coke as far as ingredients?

For general information and knowledge, what would make for Coke Kosher? Sugar instead of corn syrup? Different preparation?

There are numerous religious rules for making a product Kosher. One of the big ones is oversight by a rabbi. The cannot contain any "chametz" which is a number of different grains that includes corn.

It is the original coke formula from before 1985 when they made the switch to corn syrup. The bottles have a yellow cap and the U with a circle around it on it. There is also other Hebrew writing on the cap. You can also look at the ingredients and see that they use sucrose instead of the high fructose corn syrup.

There is a Passover Pepsi as well but I have never seen it here but Pepsi throwback is floating about still.

The taste is very similar to mexico coke and i think the ingredients are the same. But it is a much larger bottle 2L instead of 650mL for less money. So it is a great value to stock up on this time of year.

Passover is not till March 29 - April 6. It becomes available a bit early to help accommodate people that are staying away from corn syrup during Lent as well. I was told by the rep to start looking for it next week as the orders are in for it and they are expecting it to start showing up before Lent which is what happened last year.

'85 was when they did the disastrous "New Coke" campaign. At that point they had already dropped the sugar from the "Classic Coke".

I'm not sure about Coke, but I quit drinking Dr.Pepper about 1979 when they dropped the sugar. As I recall, all the major manufacturers dropped sugar about the same time.

Those passover kosher products are stratospherically expensive.

Get your Dr. Pepper in Dublin, Texas if you want it with Imperial sugar.

That is what makes Kosher Coke so great. It is the same price as the regular Coke 2 liters. I stocked up last year on the buy 4 for 5 dollars and get 1 free. so it came out to 1 dollar a 2 liter. way cheaper than mexico coke.

You are right on that other one. All the companies switched to HFCS in the mid 80s. There is the great new coke conspiracy in which they put out new coke to allow the old coke with sugar inventories to run out and give a buffer to the flavor change when they went back to coke classic used the HFCS like new coke. Most people thought it was very similar to the original but without the ready availability of sugar based coke to compare to they got away with the change. it is a pretty funny read if you like crazy conspiracies.

And I think they have the imperial sugar Dublin Dr Pepper at central market on Broadway. or that is what one of the other forums say.

I know for sure the Dublin Dr. Pepper can be found in cans at the HEB in Kerrville, if anyone knows where I can pick it up in the bottle, I'd like to hear.

I went to the Central Market on Broadway and they do have the Dublin Dr Pepper in bottles. They keep it on a pallet near the pharmacy and not in the soda section. It was 7 bucks a 6 pack.
