A Surprise Addiction From Peru

I picked up an interesting addiction while in Peru. Inca Kola.

Apparently this soft drink is a big deal in Peru, though it was apparently invented by a British immigrant as opposed to someone of Peruvian origin. It’s everywhere though, and apparently gives many of the US based soft drinks a good amount of competition (though it’s now apparently some kind of joint venture with a Peruvian company and Coke), kind of a national pride thing if you will.

Not everyone from outside digs it. Many non-Peruvians I talked to hated it. It’s flavored with  lemon verbena, but tastes to me like cheap bubble gum. I loved it, grabbing it wherever I could.

Might be difficult to find in the future. It’s not sold much here. Don’t know what I’m going to do. Do I like it enough to try to pay to have it shipped in?
