Book 6 of 30 - Inca Kola by Matthew Parris

I decided to revisit an old friend when I spotted this classic in the charity shop

The crazy thing is I read this last time in 2005, whilst I was travelling in South America and at the time I don’t remember thinking it was out of date compared to my experience of Peru and Bolivia. 57 palabras más


Peru - the country where Cola Cola marketing failed  or Inca Kola and Fanta Inglesa (English Fanta)

Today in the supermarket I saw a Fanta Inglesa (English Fanta) after yesterday I saw absolutely everywhere a soft drink called Inca Kola. I don’t know yet if it is because the Peruvians are very proud of their cuisine, or a proud nation, but it seems that Cola Cola never succeed to penetrate the Peruvian market and to dethrone the local brands of Inca Kola and Fanta Kola. 170 palabras más

For my wallet, and my health. 25 palabras más

Lima, Cusco, Here we go!

Not all that is gold glitters

Having gushed about the Japanese soft drink Marble Soda (actually called Ramune, or ラムネ) in my last post, I thought I should balance the records a bit by mentioning this not so nice soft drink I discovered a while ago at Camden Lock Market in London. 76 palabras más
