I suspect that HFCS ounce per ouce is sweeter than real sugar, thus to achieve the same taste, the HFCS version uses more water in the forumla, thus less calories.
Where you are wrong. Differentiating between the two is completely in your head. You already have that opinion formed and you KNOW where the can you are holding came from, thus, you already have your mind made up that at the end of the first can of Mexican Coke you are going to "feel full"..
I didn't know a thing about the differences between the two, I didn't even know it wasn't American coke when I bought it. It was after drinking it and noticing a different flavor and feel that prompted me to look into it's origin. I just thought Costco had a different/better formula for coke.
