So it appears (c'est une poire), that with all my recent traveling I have come to appreciate that -

The European coca cola is very much different to its American counterpart. Pepsi seems pretty much the same in Europe and North America.

Ice Tea in the US has a lot more sugar than in Europe.

What other examples do you have?

Proper iced tea should have no sugar in it at all, unless it's "sweet tea" in the South. Or are you refering to the canned variety?

Mountain Dew in Germany and Spain is not as sweet as it is in the USA. I prefer the taste of Mountain Dew from the USA.

Beck's and Bitburger beer taste completely different in other countries than in Germany. Even the Beck's you get on Shithansa flights taste different than the original Beck's from Germany.

Coke and Diet Coke (Coke Light) tasted better in Cancun than in NYC - It's similar to the Coke you get in Europe and Asia. I guess US drinks tend to be sweeter?

Also Nescafe in Asia tastes better too...

Mexican Coke still has real sugar in it, not corn syrup. (That was the story a few years ago, and I believe it's still the case.)

The stuff they sell as Orangina here in Germany tastes like water and doesn't contain as much pulp as the original. If I want some good Orangina I have to go all the way to France.  grumpy

Still is, as many stores (C-stores, grocery stores, bakeries, etc.) that are predominantly Mexican areas sell imported Coke and Pepsi products (and other soft drink brands from Mexican and Latin America).

Diet Pepsi tastes different though. And in the UK the individual bottles are 500ml and £0.80, in the US they're 750ml and $1... We're being ripped off  Wink

That's cos it is. I remember my Guv'nor in London saying to me that the Guinness barrels were produced in the UK rather than imported from Ireland.

Guinness in New Zealand is rubbish too. Though that's partly cos noone here bloody knows how to pour it correctly.

Caiparinha from Brazil taste different from anywhere else. (way better than anywhere because naturally they invented them)

The Same goes for Daiquiri & Mojito from Cuba. They are also the best.

Hmm considering that New Zealand made Guinness was voted by judges from Guinness I believe it was to be the best Guinness in the world outside of Guinness made in Ireland....

How about the water. It tastes different from town to town. I think many of the products mentioned taste different because of the different water used at the local plant where they are bottled/canned. I remember reading years ago that when Coors was planning on opening their first brewery outside Colorado, one of their primary considerations was finding water that tasted the same as at their original location. I think they settled on Virginia, but I can't be sure.
