I remember a few years ago it being pointed out that the only country which didn't have that most American symbol of American global dominance, Coca-Cola, was...America. (Because the HFCS version is so different, as you say).We call those otter pops, which is also a semi-genericized trademark.
This has me thinking about how sugar taxes, subsidies, and other laws can change cultures in small and subtle ways - like the fact that many stores in America now carry Mexican Coca-Cola, because it's made with cane sugar rather than the HFCS that's used in domestic Coke.
Wasn't there also something about there being a version of Coke suitable for a Jewish festival due to dietary laws (I forget the details) which was basically Mexican Coke and non-Jewish Americans were buying it because it's better than the HFCS version?
