When I was in law school, I made a few mistakes.
The first – going to law school!
The second – staying in law school (although the jury is out as it did lead to interesting jobs).
The third – living on Diet Coke and chocolate to stay awake and NeoCitran to go to sleep.
After law school, I gave up the law but remained devoted to my Diet Coke. I loved my Diet Coke. We had a long and unhealthy relationship. When we finally broke up, I couldn’t understand what I had ever been drinking or thinking. It had lost its hold on me and I could finally move on.
I am proud of myself as I have stayed faithful to our break up, at least in Canada. But what happens overseas, stays overseas, right? When I travel, I get weak and that dusty bottle of Diet Coke on that shelf begins to beckon me. Before I can say Diet Coke, I am drinking one. Don’t ask me how that happens. It just does.
So when we were travelling in Peru, I noticed the pride Peruvians shared in their bottles of yellow Inca Kola.
Not normally being adventurous with drinks when I travel, I tend to resort to mainstream pop. But this is Cola right? How bad could it be?
Well, the colour yellow should have been a good indicator.
One bottle between 4 people and we still couldn’t finish it. Inca Kola is the new invention of liquid bubble gum. And even though I also love bubble gum, I will kindly say, I don’t enjoy drinking it. It is most definitely not my cup of Coke.
My husband, Chris, coming from a long line of Pepsi drinkers, didn’t imbibe. Always the smart one, despite his affinity for Pepsi that is.
Thanks for stopping by to see the Family C as we drink and travel through A to Z.
What is the worst tasting drink you have ever had?
