Where would you get it in quantity? You might have better luck using unrefined cane sugar, but don't try it unless you like molasses.

There used to be a day when you could get real cane from the Grocer. Now a days you might find it at an Asian grocer.

You can also order it on-line but, I dunno what the quality is like.

Mmmmmm. Takes me back to a hocker in Msia. Yumm. Fresh squeezed sugar cane.

There are some places in NYC that sell the stalks and will grind/press them for you as a drink... I haven't seen it, but a few guys at work were telling me about it.. There are also some places on-line I found that sell it as well.. My though is that would take a whole lot of sugar juice to make a 2l bottle of soda..

I can get it - but it'll cost you $$$ for me to ship it to you in any kind of volume. maui sugar company sells a pure cane white(ish) table sugar

Boylans is another pure cane sugar soda company... Thats what got me thinking about it.. I've got a source for the extract, but I didn't know how it would relate to a soda recipe.. The guy that was telling me about it said they press it in the store and can drink it right from the press. It sounds like it would be too diluted once mixed with extract and water...

Jones uses pure cane sugar too.

There are also supposedly, pure cane versions of the Macro Soda around too. IIRC, only distinguishable by a different colored cap unless you read the ingredients.

I saw an advertisement somewhere that Pepsi was going to do a limited run of their sodas with real sugar. Forget the details.
