Inca Kola. “The Golden Kola” aka “The Golden Carbonated Beverage” aka Inca Kola, sits in front of me in a golden can, wrapped in aluminum… wrapped in a mystery. This can seems to be full of chemicals, which is something I’m pretty sure the Incan’s didn’t use a lot of in their original kola… if in fact they did make kola. The drink buy date is in 2011, almost as if they doubt you’ll be around in 2012 to drink it… eerie, but not really. The unknown must become known, let us open this golden can.
I assumed it would smell like a cola… ahem sorry… kola, but it doesn’t. Inca Kola smells of cream soda and bubble gum. The “Golden Kola” has the aroma of “The Red Wonder”… Big Red. Not being a huge fan of Big Red, it’s not looking good for Inca Kola. Time to drink.
Good news, everybody! It doesn’t taste like Big Red. The bubble gum you smell translates into the taste of the beverage, except it also includes a hint of ginger. “Does Inca Kola have ginger in it?” you ask. No. No it does not. In fact this tastes like a generic mystery beverage. It’s a hodge-podge of chemicals made to be a sugary drink with nothing that sets it apart from the pack. Get it? The pack. A six pack of soda. Eh? Eh? Awwww, you don’t get it! If you see Inca Kola though…
Verdict – Buy a Bottle
Back home, Twist is known at the Golden Iguana... I asked him why but he said it was embarrassing.
