Look at it. In all its bottled glory. Yes, my friends, that is the infamous Mexican Coke that has, in many ways, taken over my life. (Okay, not really.) You see, Mexican Coke is made with sugar. That's right, no high fructose corn syrup here, just sugar. Now sugar is arguably just as bad as high fructure corn syrup, but OH, it sure does make this coke taste 10x better than this crappy U.S. coca cola we've got in the States.
In the past, I've reserved Mexican Coke for tres special occasions and enjoyed one once or twice every couple weeks. I had to buy them individually at Central Market, a local Whole Foods-esque grocery store, and they cost almost $2 a pop (the bottles are also bigger, which = way too much cola for this chick). But this past weekend, one of the partners at the firm (my office BFF) who knows of my intense love for Mexican Coke picked up a case for me at Costco. (Bless his soul.) 24 bottles. $16.99. Heaven.
Now, I intend to ONLY have one per week, so in theory, this case will last me 24 weeks. Let's see how that goes...
