Soft drinks with real sugar tough to find

A lot of people are looking for products that don’t contain high-fructose corn syrup, and finding them difficult to locate. In response to Anna Carlton, who’s looking for soft drinks with regular sugar, Dean B. Pomerantz and C. John Stark suggested she check Mexican markets. I’ve noticed that not all soft drinks sold in Mexican markets are made without the corn syrup, but Pomerantz recommended looking for small bottles of Coke and Pepsi in six-packs. “You can tell which ones they are because they have a nutrition/ingredient sticker on the bottles,” Stark noted.

Janet McFarland suggested Hansen’s Natural Sodas, which the company confirms contain none of the syrup. Hansen’s can be found at Whole Foods Markets and Albertsons, McFarland said. …
