High Fructose Corn Syrup

I was at Walmart late last night to pickup a few things. I was also thirsty so I grabbed a bottle of Coke in a fridge next to the self-checkout cash registers.

I didn't have a bottle opener so I had to wait until I got home to drink it.

As I was drinking it and reading the label, I noticed it was bottled in Mexico. I also noticed that one ingredient was blatantly missing. High fructose corn syrup. I had to go look at a US can just to be sure.

I don't drink Coke very often but I can tell you I'm not buying anything but Mexican-bottled Coke anymore. I don't know if it tasted better, but I know it's better for me.

Oh yeah, I always grab Mexican coke whenever I see it, and it's always fantastic.  Also keep your eyes out for 2 liter "Kosher for Passover" bottles.  I really dig the Mexican coke in glass bottles though.

Yes, I took a look at the Ketchup in Canada and it also doesn't have HFCS.

The only places I've found ketchup w/o HFCS was at Whole Foods and at a dollar store.
