My friends from London tell me that CocaCola there tastes different from Coke in the US. They say it has sugar instead of corn syrup. I guess corn is very abundant here and cheap because of government subsidies. I've had Mexican coke I wonder if that has sugar instead of corn syrup. It does taste different to me.

I went on a trip to Germany a few years back, and just happened to bring a German Coke bottle back with me. So i'll compare ingredients:

American Coke:
Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavors, Caffeine.

Auf Deutsch:
"Zutaten: Wasser, Zucker, Kohlensäure, Farbstoff E 150d, Säuerungsmittel Phosphorsäure, Aroma, Koffein."

...which, thanks to my elite knowledge of German (and's too), it translates to

"Ingredients: Water, Sugar, Carbon dioxide, Dye, Phosphoric Acidicfication, Aroma, Caffeine."

they're basically the same, except for the 'high fructose corn syrup' - sugar thing you mentioned. Which makes this comment pretty pointless. Just some verification.

Hey :) This comment doesn't have anything to do with Coke - but I just downloaded your Red & Orange Metro GE files and they are great!

Do you know anywhere I could find files for the other Metro's?
