Coke in Glass Bottles

Coke in BottlesOnce in a great while I like to take a look at my traffic stats to see where people are coming from and what posts they are landing on. So today I spent some time digging through my data and found that my most popular post is now an article that I never anticipated getting much traffic. What is it?

It has to do with the title of this post…

Confused? Here’s the story: Awhile back I wrote a post while I lived in Austin about Mexican Coke. Many of the restaurants there had Mexican Coke so I eventually gave it a try, despite not liking soda much.

So what is Mexican Coke? In a nutshell, it’s Cocoa Cola produced in Mexico which is shipped up to the US. The main different between Mexican Coke and the US Coke is that it comes in glass bottles. The product from Mexico also uses real cane sugar, where as the US version uses HFCS (high fructose corn syrup).

I must say, it’s pretty surprising to see how many people are interested in finding Coke in glass bottles. I have a feeling people just like the idea of drinking out of glass instead of aluminum or plastic (I know I do). Or they just prefer the taste of real sugar over chemicals and syrupy corn products.

Anyways, the reason I wanted to put this post up is because it goes to show that you never know what people might find interesting (especially when blogging). Going through my stats also made me realize that I used to blog about any topic that came to mind, where as the last year or so I’ve been focusing more on specific topics relating to life, careers, and the digital nomad lifestyle.

My goal moving forward is to get back to blogging about everything since I love writing and this blog was originally setup as a way to share my thoughts, ideas, and opinions about all sorts of things. Plus it is a lot of fun to put up random posts since you never know what you can expect here on Life of Justin.

Stay tuned for a little more randomness on the blog.
