Thums Up for Indian Cola

Sam Hughes 6 comments

Rather than go head to head with the marketing machines of the big boys, the Parle group sold Thums Up to Coca-Cola in 1990. The labels of the two colas might seem similar, but Coca-Cola Classic and Thums Up do actually have quite distinct flavor profiles. More

Robyn Lee 4 comments

Boiled Coke with ginger and lemon started off as a popular cold remedy in Hong Kong, but now it's a popular anytime drink that's found at pretty much all Hong Kong diners.

Are you a soda mixer? More

Soda: The Pepsi Throwback Throwdown

Carey Jones and John Edwards 26 comments

Pepsi Throwback—the sugared equivalent to a soda generally made with corn syrup in America. John fancies himself a sugar-loving guy, and will always buy a Throwback over a normal Pepsi, or a Mexican Coke over an American one. But how much of these preferences are in his head? More
