Am I high or does Coca-Cola taste better at Father's Office?

Hi all,

Usually I try a new beer every time I'm at F.O. to wash down my burger & fries.

But I was designated driver this last time, and I ordered a bottled Coca-Cola instead....

MY WORD it was better than any Coke I've had since I was a child! Was this an illusion from the endorphins from the delicious burger, or are they putting opium in the bottles?

Whatever it was, I had a second bottle of Coke, thinking the first was a fluke. Nope. Same great balance of fizz and not too syrupy sweet... Ahh...

Is it just me or have other 'Hounds noted it too?

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that he buys the Mexican Coca-Cola rather than the domestic so no corn sweeteners.

      It's because they are using mexican coke.

      Coca Cola does taste better when you're high however. Doubly so when you're at FO...

        Although I haven't had a Coke at Father's Office I did notice the telltale white paper label on the bottles behind the bar that re-lable Mexican Coca Cola for sale in the U.S.

          If you are craving more, you can always drop by a BevMo or one of the smaller soda stores in your greater LA area. Worth keeping in the fridge when you love it.

            or head to Costco or Sam's Club and buy it by the case.

              Or just any convenience store that caters to Latino customers - they'll be in the refrigerator case just down from the twenty-ounce bottles of American Coke.

            Everyone, discussion of Mexican Coke made with sugar vs. Mexican Coke made with corn syrup is handled on our General Topics board. We ask that anyone interested in which Mexican bottlers produce which formula head over to that board, where it's on topic.

            The L.A. board is for sourcing the stuff in our local stores and restaurants, thanks.

              could be both....
