Inca Kola

I was surprised to see Inca Kola at my local Target store today as I had only previously seen it on my trips to Peru and Ecuador. I didn’t realize that Peruvian beverages were that popular in the Denver area (I’ve yet to find any place selling Cusquñea beer or Pisco).

Did I buy a bottle of Inca Kola today? Nope, I tried it a couple times in Peru and it was pretty nasty — imagine liquid bubble gum without the “good” taste. In fact, one day I was hankering for something sweet and grabbed a bottle at a mercado only to discover (too late) that I had grabbed Diet Inca Kola instead. Yuck.
