refresco...
I've mostly stopped drinking soda. I have a very occasional Dr. Pepper when the mood strikes (it's a genetic thing and must not be denied completely), and I do like those fruit juice sodas likeIzze and Fizzy Lizzy, but mostly my consumption of carbonation is limited to seltzer or an occasional gin & soda. I guess it is partially a healthiness thing, but a lot of it is the fact that sodas have just become too sweet for me. It's all this HFCS, of course, making everything sweeter than possible...when I'm traveling overseas, I quite enjoy a nice DP or a Coke, since most places still use the original recipe with sugar. And of course Paul grew up with real sugar Coke in Australia, so he can't touch the stuff here.

And so, the other day, Paul and I were leisurely doing our grocery shopping at Ingles. When what did we spy? Imported Coke!! From our lovely neighbors to the south. Thank you, Mexico, for sharing with us that which we didn't fully appreciate when we had it...
