Bad News For Mexicoke Fans

Via the New York Post:
“Mexicoke,” the Mexican version of Coca-Cola that’s become a cult favorite north of the border may go the way of New Coke thanks to a Bloomberg-style “fat tax.” Arca Continental, the second largest Coca-Cola bottler in Latin America, has indicated it may drop a key ingredient, cane sugar, after Mexico’s congress last week passed a levy of an extra peso — about 8 cents — per liter for soft drinks sold in the country. Instead, the firm said it may switch to cheaper corn syrup to stay profitable.
Mexicoke is carried by many NYC bodegas, but few major retailers do.
