Coke Taste Test

I had the opportunity to see first-hand how the different Coke formulations vary from region to region. A friend who travels a lot brought several different cans back for us to try out.

Tested were Japanese, Chinese, American (low-sodium), and Canadian.

Here's what I found:

- The Japanese-style Coke tasted light, and not too sweet, but without much body.

- The Chinese-style was sweeter, and fruity. It tasted almost like Pepsi.

- The U.S. style was a little oily-tasting, and reminded me a little of Dr. Pepper.

- The Canadian Coke was sweet and full of flavour, perhaps the most flavourful of the four. Almost cloying, and rich like fountain syrup.

I'm not 100% sure, but I seem to remember something about the types of sugar used in the Canadian and U.S. Cokes being different, though it could just be the quantities that are different.

For my part, I think I liked the Chinese Coke the best. Fruity and not too sweet.
