Kosher for Passover Coca-Cola!

15 04 2009

It’s magical.

I heard about it earlier this year on a couple of food blogs, and I had to try it out for myself.

During Passover, Jews cannot have anything leaven, including corn products. As such, the Coca-Cola company produces a small batch of Coke with the “Original Formula.” aka Sugar instead of HFCS. It tastes so much better. The Kosher Coke doesn’t stick to the back of your throat like HFCS Coke, it’s lighter, more refreshing, and you can drink less and feel more satiated.

This magical elixir only shows up but once a year, and only in communities with a high concentration of Jewish peoples. Since I live in the North Shore of Chicagoland, many grocery stores have this decadent potion.
Kosher Coke!
There are a couple of things to look for when you want to purchase the “right stuff.” Check if your grocery has a Kosher section, if so it would most likely be there. On the bottle itself, there will be a couple tells. The cap will be yellow and will have the “cRc” stamp meaning that it is Kosher, and if you look at the ingredients, instead of “High Fructose Lame Syrup” it will say “Sucrose” aka sugar! This year it seems that they only come in the 2 liter variety.

I think I have enough stock to last me for a few months. 10 2 liter bottles of Kosher coke, and 2 2 liter bottles of Kosher Pepsi for good measure.

I don’t think I’ll be going back to the High Failtown Corn Suckass version.
