Kosher is "the Real Thing"

A letter to the editor as published in the Wall Street Journal, January 19, 2006:

Notwithstanding Coca-Cola's assertion to the contrary, domestic and foreign Coca-Cola taste very different, with the domestic variety tasting syrupy. One can conduct his or her own taste test by comparing regular Coca-Cola with Kosher for Passover Coca-Cola, which can be purchased in late March and April in many cities with Jewish communities. Because corn syrup isn't kosher for Passover, Kosher for Passover Coca-Cola is sweetened with sugar, thus allowing us, for a few weeks each year, to drink "the Real Thing."

Mr. Minsk,
Coca Cola is not a very healthy habit. I am guessing it is addictive. The sweetened flavoring---kosher for Passover or not---creates the desire for the tastebuds to crave more sweetness when it is much healthier to drink water or juices with a lower sugar content.
