when chris was growing up, his mom occasionally brought home exotic fruits from the grocery store for him & his brothers to sample. i love the idea of learning about & trying new things, and we are fairly adventurous when it comes to food anyway. feeling inspired in the ethnic aisle last week, i picked up this latin soft drink for us to try. when chris & i watched top chef this season, our favorite contestant richard (from atlanta!) made a meat marinade out of a similar malt beverage at the season finale in puerto rico.
when we opened the drink, it had a strong smell - a lot like molasses. the color is very dark, like soy sauce. even though it's a cola, the fizz isn't as effervescent as coke. it doesn't taste quite as strong as it smells and is hardly sweet at all. chris only took one sip and i just made it through two before deciding it definitely wasn't for us. fortunately, it was only 56¢ that (literally) went down the drain. but you never know unless you try!
