    Cat’s like Coca Cola? Is English Coke made with cane sugar, or corn syrur, like it is here? It was so much better with cane sugar.

    Corn Syrup, alas. Personally, I’m a Dr Pepper’s man.

    High-fructose corn syrup…my generation of north americans is practically made of that thing.

    I’ve seen that cat before, I think, maybe on a TV show named Pawn Stars. Or maybe just because he’s a fat cat.

    I love Coca Cola, but as I’m cutting back on the sugar I’m drinking more Coke Zero. Yes I know it’s not very healthy either but it’s better than the sugar.

    Dr. Pepper for me too, although there’s still that nasty HFCS.

    Andrew, it depends on the area of this great country. Back east, in the Philly area, it’s called soda. In Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado, it’s pop. It may be pop in other western areas, but those are the only states I’ve lived in.

    Again back east, little kids call it soda pop. I think calling it soda is something that happens around age thirteen, but I can’t remember back that far.

    It’s also pop here in Ohio. Think it’s like that in a lot of the midwestern States too.

    Our cat does this when we open a bottle of pop. She thinks it is her arch enemy, the cat from next door but one.

    It’s Soda in Milwaukee, but we drink water from bubblers, not drinking fountains.

    A lad named Cholmondley Colquhoun
    Who fed his pet ape with a Spquhoun
    His mother said, “Cholmondley
    Do you think it quite Colmondley
    To feed your Babquhoun with a Spquhoun?”

    Look around, you may find Mexican-made Coca-cola in the US. Made with cane sugar and it comes in a glass bottle. Be sure to dump in a handful of peanuts.

    Each spring, you can find kosher Coke made with cane sugar for Passover. One of the few times religion does some good.

    The local Super Value carries Mexican Coke, but the side of the bottle says cane suger and/or corn syrup.

    I have found a substitute that tastes like Coke. Both Coke and Pepsi are citrus based, Coke is Lime based, and Pepsi is orange based. If you go to a real ice cream fountain, they will have flavored syrups, which are still made with cane sugar. A lime Diet Coke puts a little more lime flavor, and cane suger in the drink. If the soda jerk makes it right, tastes just like real Coca Cola, circa 1980, before the corn syrup switch.

    My real indulgence is A&W Root Beer – I have a shop next to my workplace that I persuaded to import it specially for me. And amazingly, they put it on their shelves and it became the trendy ‘in’ drink for the hipsters at the music venue down the road. So now they’re selling loads of the stuff at £1.35 a can! I think I’ll introduce Hostess Twinkies to this country next… market them as punk cup cakes.

    Oh, Andrew, please not Twinkies! But Tastykakes would be nice. I miss Tastykakes. http://www.tastykake.com/products/

    @jimmyh43105

    So, the western border of Pennsylvania is the boundary line between soda and pop? Hm. Probably not; there’d be some overflow from Ohio. Maybe the Appalachians? Maybe I don’t have enough to do?
