it's poetry in my mouth.

it has nothing to do with the red bull energy drink, except that it shares some branding. it's not even manufactured by the same company.

it's a cola made with cane sugar (sucrose, as opposed to high fructose corn syrup et al.), all natural flavoring, and caffeine from coffee beans.

at my grocer, they're about $1.40 for a 12oz can. to me it's worth it. but i contacted costco's buying office and suggested that they sell it. hopefully they do!

note: apparently no one likes it except for me. i haven't found anyone in person who enjoys it. and this av club article suggests that few people will like it.

i like the strong flavor, and i love the sucrose. when i drink it back-to-back with an american coke, i'm disgusted with the coke. i think the high fructose corn syrup just tastes awful. i know a lot of you here prefer mexican coke with cane sugar. i do too. i've always been loyal to rockstar energy drink, which only uses sucrose.

this week i'll buy some mexican cokes and some more red bull cola and see which i prefer.

i bought a case of mexican coke from costco and they have this awful metallic residue on the bottle cap area of the bottle. i have to wipe it off pretty thoroughly and pour it into a cup if i don't want a mouth full of rust :\

i had one of these the other night and i liked it enough to get it again today!

i like it, but the after taste has a little too much of a taste memory for me. maybe part of it was how the one today didn't seem as carbonated or something. anyway i like it pretty well and i'll probably get it on occasion.

good find!

I tried Red Bull Cola the other day... too bitter for my liking. Sticking to Mexican coke. \m/

I didn't like Red Bull's version at all. If it hadn't been so expensive, I might not have even finished it

Safeway got a new case of nine or so and I bought two. I got a whole sandwich this time at the deli also and it's enough to feed me for several days. Half sandwich is OK for future reference.

bump haha

I tasted this beauty like a month ago and it's considerably nicer than anything Coca Cola manufacture.

+1 for Red Bull.

> i've seen that on mexican coke bottles too.

i had bought numerous cases of mexican coke without an incident. but this latest case has this issue on all of the bottles so far.

i can wipe some of it off, but not all of it. i haven't noticed any taste from it, but i avoid it with my lips. maybe the residue on the bottles in this case is mostly dried coke and not much (if any) rust.
