    Hello all,

    I would love to make myself some deep fried Coca-Cola. Unfortunately, it seems the recipe requires "(Coca) cola syrup" - does anyone know where might I get it, either UK retailers or maybe on-line? :confused:

    Never heard or seen it, so I'd appreciate all tips and help

    Many thanks

    Soda stream stockists possibly, otherwise I'm imagine you'd only be able to get the 2.5/5 litre post-mix tubs from wholesalers.

    Of course you could just reduce some coke down in a pan

    What are the post-mix tubs? :confused: never heard about it, lol - and do you know whom should I get in touch with? Britvic? Coca-Cola UK?

    TBH I'd be well off with 1L bottle, not sure if they'd sell me that tiny amount anyway :confused:

    Well I think the way that pubs/clubs/restaurants 'make' cola is to mix the syrup with soda water. That's why sometimes it's very flavoursome and other times it's watery.

    I imagine you can just boil cola (simmer it) until all the water has evaporated. But it would be very hot (boiling sugar) and might ruin your pan with all the chemicals and colourings.

    Do you have any friends who work in fast food? My mate at work was really addicted to those limited edition chilli heatwave doritos, so he gave his boss the money and they ordered an extra box of them when they did their weekly stock order.

    Or you could try wholesale, but its a long shot.

    Post mix are the tubs of syrup that are used in coke/pepsi machines in bars etc. The easiest way is to pour a bottle of coke into a pan then simmer until it is a syrup. Or find the soda stream shiznitz

    My next door neighbour won the competition to do the advert for those

    Once, when he was babysitting me, when I was a young'in, he destroyed my lego tower once I'd gone to sleep
