Mom came home from shopping today with two-dozen bottles of "Kosher for Passover" Coca-Cola. If you've got a Ralph's grocery store in your neighborhood and would like to try Coke made with sucrose rather than high fructose corn syrup, beat your feet down before Passover ends so that you stand a chance of getting a bottle or ten. The recipe for the kosher soda is said to be the pre-1985 recipe ... the one used prior to the "New Coke" debacle. This information is speculative, but the Coke does taste much like the formula still being produced in Mexico.
Be sure to look for the yellow caps on the bottles. The caps on Mom's bottles have red lettering certifying approval by the Orthodox Union. This designation certifies that the formula used has no grain (HFCS comes from corn. Corn is one of the many grains that observant Jews aren't allowed to consume during Passover). You might find yellow caps with black lettering ... like this picture. One thing's for certain: None of the kosher Coke caps have "My Coke Rewards" codes under them. Sigh.
Rumor has it that "Passover Pepsi" is also available ... but Mom hasn't seen or tasted it. San Diego Pepsi Bottlers use yellow caps on the high fructose corn syrup formula beverage, so Mom wouldn't know how to distinguish the Passover Pepsi from the usual stuff (other than reading the labels).
