Then they changed the recipe for the worse and I stopped eating their pizzas. I haven't tried this new recipe but maybe I will if their prices are in any way reasonable. I am prepared to hate it though.

Unfortunately everyone does so it's hard getting around it. At least Pepsi is still selling their throwback version with real sugar. I don't if Dr. Pepper is still selling their heritage version, though I am still working on the ones I had to go to Ohio to buy last year since this area didn't have it. For Coke- as you say just the Mexican option, though I'm told there's a kosher version sold in Jewish stores, also with real sugar, at certain times of the year.
