Is it just me, or does this can look sort of like Tecate beer?

So i have had a bit of a bee in my bonnet from reading Jay Caragay's blog ( to try coke made with cane sugar, rather than high fructose corn syrup. I have not yet gotten around to checking out the mexican groceries to look for the cane sugar coke bottled in Mexico.
My sister in law gave me a tip that the whole foods house brand (365 value) cola is made with cane sugar. There is a whole foods less than a mile from my office, so i headed out there at lunch to check it out.
I like it a lot! Whenpassover approaches I will need to do a head to head taste test to compare it to kosher for passover coke, but for now I am quite pleased. Another benefit (for me) is that it is caffiene free. I prefer to reserve my caffiene consumption for coffee.
