I have to disagree with the reasons why they use corn syrup in their sodas.. Years ago, sugar was EXPENSIVE. So, in an effort to cut costs, the cola makers decided to find something cheaper, and still charge the same price for their soda. Along comes corn syrup. That's why a 5 lb bag of sugar now costs 89 cents instead of $5 End of story. Also, sugar no longer comes just from cane, but also from beet. Sugar producers will not mark their bags as what type of plant they got their sugar from, for fear that customers will only buy one type. (which would be a bad thing for us consumers, because it would drive the price of cane sugar up because people would claim it's more "pure" or some other horse hockey.) That's what I learned in Culinary school. As far as choosing a cola, where's ?
