Jupina! (Cawy)

A short Google search has taught me that Cawy is like the South American Coca Cola. Also that Jupina is one of the sweetest drinks in the world. A taste of this soda could tell you the latter. This has sugar AND corn syrup. It's regular American super sweet, blended with sugar sweet, and somehow, after you swallow, it tastes like Splenda. I have no idea how.

It tastes like fake pineapple and there is a little bit of vanilla/coconut (sun tan lotion) there at the end. This website suggests you drink it with something salty or fatty. As those are two of my favorite food groups, I thought I would like this, but alas, it was still way too sweet, though I ate it with homemade (read salt and oil) tofu croutons. Yeah, they're my experiment, but they were awesome, but they left me parched. Jupina is the OPPOSITE of refreshing. It's like syrup. Bleh. I am pouring this one out before bees attack me.

In other news, I am excited about the new Imbibe Magazine from Portland, OR! I am looking forward to a review of New Deal Vodka which is also from Portland, but I can't get my hands on any!
