    And the government made stevia illegal in the early 90's and ruined the taste of Vernor's ginger ale too. It's legal for you to grow, eat and sell as an herbal suppliment, but you better not put it in food. Thank you corn lobbyists!

    You can buy Thums Up! (really it is spelled wrong on the bottle) from your local Indian (dots not feathers) grocery store. It's made by Coca-Cola and has the good stuff in it too. It's actually pretty good too.

    My grandfather would say that when he wanted a Coke. Any truth that it did have the real thing in it many years ago ?

    This is from memory Scott, so bear with me.

    According to the reference cited below, which is one of the
    most widely used college-level textbooks in substance use and abuse,
    the basic facts seem to be that Coca-Cola was formulated in 1886 in
    Atlanta by Dr. J.C. Pemberton as a tonic, containing caramel, fruit
    flavoring, phosphoric acid, caffeine, and "a secret mixture called
    Merchandise No. 5," a mixture "containing the tonic properties of the
    wonderful coca plant and the famous cola nut." (first quote from the text,
    second from an early ad for Coke). The book goes on to say that "In 1903
    the company admitted that there were small amounts of cocaine in its
    beverage, but soon after that they quietly removed it all; a
    government analysis of Coca-Cola in 1906 did not find any." The
    company eventually had to reveal the composition of Merchandise No. 5
    to the federal government for its approval, a long, long, time before
    the FDA came into existence.

    Apparently Coke is still flavored with extracts from coca leaves,
    but with the cocaine removed, to this day. The book says that
    a pharmaceutical company in NJ does the removal and ships the
    decocainized leaves to Atlanta.

    by Oakley Ray and Charles Ksir, McGraw-Hill.

    Thanks Jack

    My grandfather was born in the late 1800's so he could have known first hand.

    I found out about Mexican Cokes about 10 years ago and drank them for 2 or 3 years. I even drove 4 hours to Piedras Negras to get cases of the stuff!
    I gained about 25 pounds!
    They are good but be careful,,, sugar in those doses are not good for you and will drain your energy levels and health overall.
    Drink water!
