Alaska does not serve Coke or Pepsi products, instead, they serve Seattle-based Jones Soda, sweetened with cane sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup.
And apparently starting in April, Pepsi will be making Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback, both of which use sugar instead of HFCS. (Link via Girlhacker.)
Also, am I the only one who keeps seeing these ads, apparently from the High-Fructose Corn Syrup Council or something, where a woman refuses a product that has HFCS in it and her friend challenges her to say why she is rejecting it? And then chirps that it's fine in moderation?
Duuuuude. I can't draw you out a diagram of why smoking is bad for me, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna start sucking down Marlboro Reds. And as the TIME article points out, it's hard to moderate your HFCS consumption when it's in everything.
