Kosher Coca-Cola

Amscrap | Apr 15, 2003 04:26 PM

Well, this is the first time I'm posting a message to Chowhound. After visiting from time to time, over the past year-and-a-half, I'm currently working my way up from the oldest postings. It's taking a while since I'm reading most of the messages (up to May, 2002, as of today!). Unfortunately, this makes posting a message a bit intimidating. After all, who can ferret out the food like Rene, Seth, VI (just to name a very few)? Plus, not only can they find the eats but their palates are discriminating enough so that not only can they name the spices in the food but they could probably name the farm where the spices were grown!

But, in a small way, there is something I feel is worth mentioning to my co-hounds.

As discussed in some earlier messages, Coca-cola produces a Kosher for Passover version of their Classic cola. This differs from the normal product as they use sugar (sucrose) instead of the usual high fructose corn syrup. But once the supply is depleted, there won't be any more until next year (except for any Coca-Cola you can find that has been bottled South of the Border).

One of the places carrying the Kosher Coke is Treasure Island on least they had it this past Sunday when I stopped in and bought eight 6-packs. It should have a decent shelflife (the cans are dated Dec. 15th).

Two caveats:

Call to make sure they still have some available (once it's gone, it's gone).

Although the Passover Coke is located near the Passover display, be sure the cans you buy have the triangle with "P03" and "CRC" marked inside (next to the UPC code). This is the only way to know you are getting the correct can since they also have the non-Kosher Coke, at the same price.
