Is Mexican Coke Better?

Many of my friends, myself included, rush to drink Mexican Coke as it’s made with cane sugar and comes in a glass bottle. Kenji from Serious Eats was also obsessed, but decided to test if it’s actually better. I’ll let you read through his post to find out, but it reminded me of an episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit where they tear down organic foods. At the end, they did a taste test of organic vs. non-organic and no one could tell the difference.

Here’s the first section of the P&T episode.

Eric Asimov and the NYT Says Sprecher Makes the Best Root Beer

Sprecher is my all-time favorite, having drunk it regularly while in Madison. They don't review my second favorite, Henry Weinhardt's, but you'll have to trust me. While shipping is not cheap, Pop Soda lets you mail-order all kinds of delicious root beer and fizzy drinks. [via kottke]
