The purple frog of black light swap was in the field one day. When the black fly of purple cove came buzzing around purple frog stuck his black tongue out and swallowed black fly, purple wings and all.

Had some kosher Coca-Cola the other day. It was o.k. as far as pop goes (it was the first soft drink I had had in over a year - I'm not a pop drinker). It was a little sweeter than regular Coke - it used sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. That was the only difference in ingredients I noticed. And it made me wonder:

What's not kosher about high fructose corn syrup?

I think that it's the *Kosher for Passover* which is on a different level then everyday Kosher.  The syrup is from corn, a grain and grains can have levening.  During the days of Passover, from what I understand, there can be absolutely NO levening or levened products in the house.  Only things like Matzo for a bread/cracker and matzo meal/potato starch/almonds etc for baking/cooking. 

I'm dating myself, but I remember when sugar sweetened Coca-Cola was what there was.  Then they had "New Coke" and it tasted different.  And the sugar only/K for Passover is the taste of the drink in my youth in the West.

The sugar-sweetened soda tastes waaaaay better than the corn syrup-sweetened.  Ever had a Jones soda?  Yum.

Soda is the disgusting carbonated water that you get from an alternate switch on the fountain Pop machine.

Pop.

Soda vs. Pop is almost a county by county dialect in Missouri.  My hometown is on the south central part of the state where it's soda.  Here in southwestern part, it's pop and it better be pop or no one knows what you're talking about.

I don't drink pop that much (maybe one per year, maybe) - but I don't find it disgusting.

Not the drink.. the acne
