The Good Stuff Spotlight: Mexican Coca-Cola!

In the US, Coca-Cola is made with HFCS( high-fructose corn syrup) and corn syrup. For those who have a Corn Allergy, we've had to give up drinking our iconic soda. It turns out Coca-Cola in Mexico is made the old fashioned way, with sugar. Folks, hold off on buying a plane ticket to Mexico!

The Good News: Mexican Coca-Cola is sold on the West-Coast!

The Taste Test:

It's exactly the same as US Coca-Cola.The only difference is it Corn-Free and it costs $0.99 a bottle. The only questions are: Why must Coca-Cola continue to discriminate it's US customers who have food allergies? Why can't there be one Coca-Cola, made the old fashioned way, with sugar instead of corn? It's time to end this discrimination now!

The Good Stuff Rating: 5/5

1) Wash the lemons

2) Slice then lemons in half

3) Cut medium thick lemon slices, make sure they're circular

4) Begin by lining the bottom of the bowl with the circular lemon slices.
