Peru Shopping: 39 reviews and 35 photos
No! no! not Inca Kola. Great name but it tastes like a bad blend of bubble gum and cola. Once you have tried it you will realize that it would not serve as a good souvenir. Do you really want a T-shirt with a product which tastes bad and is not much more than a chemical mix of sugar and water. Or do you want a bottle of something that was never good in the first place and does not get better with age.
What to buy: You are going to Peru, so you will certainly learn of Pisco Sours (Yes, they are called this in Spanish). A bottle of Pisco would be a better souvenir or gift than a bottle of Inca Kola. The name alone will revive good memories. And once you have emptied the bottle, you will know that it is time to return. The empty bottle can be a reminder to plan your next visit to Peru.
What to pay: For Inca Kola --Not much, but anything is too much.
Directions: Everywhere fine drinks are sold, and everywhere else as well.
