Passover Goodies

One of the great things about passover is the fact that you can get Kosher for Passover Coke. As in Coca-Cola. What makes this different from regular coke you ask?

Regular Coke is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. :(

High fructose corn syrup is made from corn (well duh!)

Corn is a grain.

Grains are forbidden during passover.

To make sure that no one stops drinking Coke during passover Coke makes special batches of their beverage with sucrose... i.e. SUGAR.

If you have ever wondered what Coke used to taste like back in the day before high fructose corn syrup was invented... you have to try kosher for passover Coke.

My hubby and I finally found it this year and although we normally do not drink non-diet soda we bought 5 2-liter bottles. It is GOOD. There is definitely a difference between K for P Coke and regular Coke.

Here is more info on how to spot the REAL thing.

Molly- I did post a response to your comment, but didn't have your email address and wanted to let you know.

This is so funny to read this because it just came up on a blog I read called Not Martha. The link is here:

She did a taste test that I think you will find interesting after reading this entry!

Thanks a bunch for swinging by my neck of the woods. I love your blog and have it on my feed :)

Amy, I am so flattered! (blush, blush). You have given me so many great frugal ideas. Your comment makes a lot of sense and I agree with you completely. It also sound you will get a lot more use out of the bags than I would, so it won;t take you a bazillion years to recoup the costs. Plus there is the feel good factor... you're doing something good (and in the end it IS a good thing) so even if it costs you a little money it is worth it in the end.
