My Coke Addiction

No... not that kind.

The Coca-Cola kind. 

I cut sodas out of my diet years ago because they were empty, unnecessary calories. Additionally, they contained High Frutcose Corn Syrup, which is another reason why I stopped eating lots of junk foods (though I do have my moments where I don't fall, but LEAP off the wagon). And don't get me started on artificial sweeteners...

I even started drinking my alcohol without mixers in order to avoid HFCS/artificial sweeteners.

Mexican Coke is an exception. 
  • Uses real sugar. 
  • Not as easy to find
  • Comes in a glass bottle
  • It tastes better
It's an occasional treat and not a part of my daily routine. 

Coke sold in Spain is also made with sugar - as opposed to the HFCS. 

Aaaaah - coke is delicious... hello empty calories.
