Start looking at the ingredients of Coke and Pepsi right around Passover. Coke puts yellow caps on theirs, no idea about Pepsi. These "Kosher for Passover" sodas temporarily replace the corn syrup with cane sugar. Look for them in places with larger Jewish populations. But stock up, they only produce limited quantities for a very brief time.

Around here we get all the sodas with sugar around Jewish Holidays since it's kosher.

I tried the cane sugar version of Coke in St. Lucia and nearly sh1t myself... It was sooo much better than I had ever had before. I always look out for the kosher version of Coke during passover, but I can;t stand Pepsi, so I haven't tried the Throwback.

Rumor among the soda geeks "in the know" is Crystal Pepsi is indeed coming back.

Might be worth trying. HFCS and my GI do not get along. I haven't had anything except diet sodas for years.

Just tried the Pepsi throwback and realized that I must have had soda with real sugar overseas somewhere. I always thought the soda overseas was just "Different." Why the hell did they start using this corn syrup crap anyway?
