Ghetto Coke

Ghetto CokeSnapped this shot at yesterday's Accord meeting when I realized, to my amazement, that the two bottles looked completely different. The new one on the right has a flat, two-colour label, and the one from last spring on the left (a Passover bottle with sugar, not corn syrup) has a much snazzier, 3D-looking design, with yellow and grey inks added to the red and black, and nice shading and texture. Click for a closer look.

I don't think I'd ever bothered tasting the two kinds of Coke (sweetened with sugar vs corn syrup) side by side before. I knew I liked it better with sugar, but the difference is striking. A fresh batch should be available in another few weeks. :-)
