The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Coca-Cola, the real thing, Mexican style
Coca-Cola addicts: visit Costco.
Yes, the big box store. Specifically, on Route 110 in Melville.
There you will find bottles of Coke that are easily identifiable by a key phrase: Hecho en Mexico. Yes, this is the Coca-Cola made in the country that loves it best. It's made with cane sugar, not high-fructose corn syrup. It's in 12-oz. (or 355ml) glass bottles, 24-bottle packages, about $20. Refresco indeed.
It's the real thing.
And to quote another corporate motto: Membership has its privileges.
For the true believer, locating this cache is like finding El Dorado.
Costco, 625 Broadhollow Rd., Melville; 631-293-8707.
