Recent Posts on Serious Eats

I’ve been tremendously busy lately, and mostly writing about soda, not fast food. Carey Jones and I are co-writing a column about soda. The most interesting pieces, from my point of view, are us covering all the Coke Freestyle Machine, and my blind taste test of Pepsi, Coke, High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Cane sugar.

If you only read one of these articles, it should be the one in which we try all 127 flavors in the Coke Freestyle machine. It took place over 5 days at the Five Guys on 7th avenue in Brooklyn. I mean, who could try all 127 flavors in one sitting?

For me, the most fascinating was my blind taste test of Pepsi vs. Coke, High Fructose Corn Syrup vs. Sugar. To explain that better, we had Pepsi Throwback (made with sugar), Coke from Europe (made with sugar), Regular Coke (HFCS) and Regular Pepsi (HFCS).  Carey served me two at a time, and I had to pick the one I liked better. The results were interesting: I slightly preferred Pepsi to Coke, which I already knew, but overwhelmingly preferred sugar to HFCS.

The rest of the articles we’ve written are here:
