I have to say I quite like rum and coke.

I virtually never drink it when I am at home and have my full bar handy. I'd rather have a Daiquiri or an El Presidente or something. However, I find it a nice enough way to drink rum when in a bar that can't mix cocktails, or on holiday and picked up a bottle of rum I want to try.

It's an interesting drink to compare different rums in too.

I quite like Barbancourt with coke. It cuts through the coke nicely.

Barbancourt White, as well, seems to want to mix well with coke.

Tiare, 'fu fu' is lingo, a kind of a playful word to describe something that is frilly, excessively demure, or low on macho. The word is definitely playful in common vernacular.
In terms of the Fu Fu Berries Soda it is probably some sweet blending of a variety of berries with carbonation.
Here are a bunch of funny definitions of fu-fu.

Costco here in the states sells Mexican Coke, which is made with cane sugar, as opposed to HFCS.

If you like the Real Thing better made with real sugar and you happen to live near a Costco, you'll be happy to know that they're selling Mexican Coke: $17.99 for a case of 24 twelve ounce bottles, which comes out to 75c each. How'd Costco manage that, you ask? According to SFist, they've "conformed to CA and U.S. rules, such as CRV (the sort-of deposit you pay for the bottle) and "nutrition" labeling, so everything appears to be nice and legal."

Coca-Cola Corporate in Atlanta says there is "no perceptible taste difference" between Mexican Coke made with real sugar and US Coke made with high-fructose corn syrup, but as anyone who's ever had the two can tell you, that's wishful thinking—drinks made with real sugar have a clean sweetness and light mouthfeel to them, while those made with corn syrup have heavy mouthfeel and a cloying sweetness.

Don't believe me? A commenter on Jason Perlow's post on Passover Coke (made in the US with real sugar for the holiday) said he'd brought back real sugar Coke from Nicaragua and did blind taste tests with friends and family: "We used purified ice, cold bottle cokes with Sugar & HFCS and a rinse of purified water between taste. EVERYONE - to a person - can taste a difference and all prefer the sugar! Nearly half of the people were very sceptical, and said it was in our heads. They said “I remember that taste”, and “WOW, that IS better!” [via YumSugar]

Yes, I buy Mexican Coke for that reason. I much prefer the taste. I usually buy it at the local Mexican grocery, but the next time I'm over at the Costco in Albany I'll look for it.

When we lived in Florida we could get Abita Springs root beer, made in Louisiana and also sweetend with sugar. Haven't seen than in OR.

Another place I've seen it is Super 88 (a chain of Chinese groceries).
