It's not called "The Pepsi Generation" for nothing.
Don't sell good marketing programs short.
Both Coke and Pepsi probably have marketing and advertising programs
that are the major cost component of their product.
IIRC the body doesn't convert fructose [sweetener] as readily as it can
other sugar forms meaning that somehow or another [nutritionally] it is not
particularly good for you. Apparently, it is significantly cheaper such
that that the soft drink bottlers need it to profit in a highly competitive
I've never gotten around to finding any but have been told for years
that Coca Cola that is kosher for Passover is to die for. Account corn
products are forbidden during Passover Coke that is kosher for Passover is
made with real cane sugar.
Or something like that.

Dave - you can get these same Cokes at your local Mexican restaurant
that actually caters to folks from south of the border. Remember the
16 oz glass bottles (didn't Hippo make a 24?) of Coke? They are
alive and well at many establishments here and are BIG sellers.
Do you remember the bite you got from an ice cold Coke when you were a
kid? Same formula, different sweetner than now. The Cokes in these
restaurants are made in Mexico (only 2 1/2 hours away) with cane
sugar, not a limp substitute. The difference is huge. They sell
those 16 oz bottles in the restaurants for $2 a bottle, and the guys
at the taco hole a few blocks from my house told me they sell so many
cases of it that from time to time they sell out completely.
Take a drink of one of those... they will take you back.
You know, I think I have seen them at our local "leaning towards
health food chain" called Whole Foods. I am not much of a soda
drinker, but do enjoy a really cold one on a hot day.
Any suggestions on flavors?
Their Cola is pretty good, but for that sugar cane goodness, try the
cream soda. Sweet as an angel's pee, but in a nice way. I like the
green apple too.
Hmmm, maybe Whole Foods here in Houston or Central Market carries it.

While you're certainly right that the basic factor is lack of exercise, sugar
hasn't been as plentiful, historically, as you think. Cane won't grow in cold
climates, and it's only in the last two centuries that a significant portion
of the world's sugar has come from beets.
