Little Things Thursday

It has been a long while, too long in fact, since I've had the opportunity to link up with one of my irl friends over at her blog for Little Things Thursday. Today I am taking the time to join back in!

When I was in Uganda I discovered the deliciousness of Coca Cola made with real cane sugar and not high fructose corn syrup. To top it off it's in glass bottles. While Coke was my favorite all the little kids their loved the treat of drinking an Orange Fanta. Wherever we drove their were advertisements pasted up for Ice Cold Coco Cola. I still laugh about that because due to the lack of electricity and refrigeration everything was a nice 80 degrees or so.

Since I've been back in the states, I have discovered that you can buy coke bottled to be sold in Mexico that is made with the same yummy sugar, so I have been a regular customer at my local Hispanic Market just for their coke.  Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon not only coke but a variety pack of fanta, sprite and coke at my local Costco.  My kids were pretty excited as well.

Little by Little


  1. Glad you came back today! We miss seeing you around! I have never had Mexican Coke, but Thai Coke, in a bottle, was made with real cane sugar too. My first taste 20 years ago, was almost too sweet. But, I came to love it and find it so refreshing. Thais love various Fanta flavors. The green and reds were "interesting".

  2. what a beautiful set of photos...loved them.

  3. I love coke here in Uganda. Isn't it the best? Thankfully, the little shop down the street from my house usually has electricity and keeps them really cold. I am thankful for them also. Sometimes it is the little things that get us through the day. :-)
