Kosher for Passover coca cola

who else plans to stock up on these when they hit the stores? im 20 so i didnt experience the great coke from the early days. pepsi throwback is an improvement to regular ppepsi, but cant even compare to HFCS coke. i am so excited to try passover coke. does anyone know if they use cane or beat sugars?

and i havent seen them in my stores yet? have you guys seen them in yours? supposedly they only make them in 2 liters but ive sworn ive seen them in cans i live ion new jersey.

also i just noticed the regular 2 liters are skinny now. why is that? that kind of detracts people from buying the majorly overpriced but less big 1.5 liters.

      1. Look for the 2 liter bottle with a yellow cap. That's the passover coke.
        Have seen passover Fox's U bet syrup already. It has a Passover plastic seal over the cap.

          yeah, ive been checking for the yellow caps lol.

            WHAT? I knew NOTHING about this. OMG. Thrilled. For sure stocking up. Thank you!

              In the NY/ Long Island area King Kullen has Passover coke in 2 liter bottles at a buck each.

          2. In the past I've been able to buy kosher for passover ipepsi in cans - can't swear to coca cola in cans. if you live in New Jersey you should be able to find the KP soda pretty easily - try the kosher grocery in Elizabeth, or in Lakewood (near Ocean County)

                tried it today. it lost its fizz quickly after pouring it into a immediately..and tasted like syrup.
                it said sucrose instead of sugar idk if that makes a difference but i know pepsi throwback says sugars.s

                1. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5

                  rctriplefresh5, i have learned something else new from you and you are only twenty years old
                  i never heard of passover coca cola

                    HOwd you know my age?

                    did you go buy some? i bought two 2 liters and i wasn't impressed at all. maybe its because im used to drinking out of cans,but these tasted syrupy and lost fizz almost immediately after pouring.

                    1. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5

                      Short term memory disabiiity. Must be from the sucrose. You give your age in the OP.

                      If you want to experience great coke, just get an 8-10 oz glass bottle. That means so much more for that irreplaceable Coke 'kick' than any coke packaged in 2-liter plastic.

                        completely agree, Steve. The glass bottle Mexican coke, chilled to the point of almost freezing, is Coke Nirvana.

                  2. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5

                    Sucrose is table sugar, from cane or beets.

                2. re: brooklynkoshereater

                  Coca Cola hasn't had cans in the tri-state area for a few years. Last year I purchased Pepsi, regular and diet in cans at Moishe's on Ave. M. Tried to go twice this year, couldn't find parking got annoyed and left. Will try again tomorrow with a friend to wait in the car and then we will switch places. Will post if I find it.

                  1. re: mommysmazal

                    kosher cans right?? I see normal coke cans here all the times.

                    1. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5


                      APPARENTLY MOST OTHER AMERICANS AGREE WITH ME MY STORE HAS HAD THE PASSOVER COKES SINCE march 13 and we still have A LOT left, likek i mean A LOT. i bought 4 more cause they were on sale, and im jsut not feeling it. i even tried a pepsi passover one, and it tasted worse than pepsi throwback. maybe i just dont like soda from a 2 liter anymore? i loved the pepsi throwback in the cans.

                      1. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5

                        I had real coke from self-serve fountain at a resort in Barbados. It was bottled right in the Parish I was staying. Barbados main export is sugar cane which explains there use of it in the bottling plant. This stuff SO much better than the states, I must have drank about eight glasses a dy at least. The temp being 90 every day only added to the experience of it...

                          I just got the best deal on the c-c for Passover at Hess gas station, of all places. They had a deal for 3 2 liters for $3 and they had coupons on the bottles for $1 off of 3 2 liters so I got three bottles for $2!! I'm enjoying a cool glass as we speak!!!

                          1. re: imhungryletseat

                            nice deal man, if the math i did in my head is correct thats around 67.5 cents a bottle! best ive got it for is 1.00. overall impression was i wasnt impressed with the kosher coke. maybe i prefer the HFCS version, or maybe i just dont like plastic soda. i love coke in cans,ill try hfcs coke next in a 2 liter,and report back, if its not good ill go back to cans.

                            it should be noted,i enjoyed pepsi throwback in the cans, but pepsi 2 liter kosher was horrible(tried it to make sure it wasnt just the coke)

                            i think pepsi kosher is identical to pepsi throwback also?
                            im surprised you still found some kosher coke. i know my store still has a lot, but new jersey usually does.

                            1. re: RCTRIPLEFRESH5

                              I JUST BOUGHT SOME WEGMANS BRAND SODA. Its 69 cents for a 2 liters. anyway it says on the ingredients list...high fructose corn syrup..and or sugar...i felt this was pretty cool really.

                3. My local Mexican [El Salvadorian] restaurant has sugar Coke from Mexico in glass bottles every day. I rarely drink soda, but when I do it is one of those.

                    Just snagged a couple of bottles of Mexican Coke at a IGA in Summerville, Ga., of all places. Apparently the manager is Mexican, says he plans to keep getting it.
                    Great stuff!

                      Guys, go to a town with a significant hispanic population and hit the local grocery for mexican Coke, I'm in a small town in TX (came adross this thread while searching for Coke syrup) and my chain carries mexican coke every day.
