Some Brazilian Soft Drinks

Antarctica Soda Limonada Industria Brasileira

Here's what I got when I asked for 7-Up here in Brazil - some local version. It didn't taste any different, but I had to remind myself again that "lemonade" means 7-Up in many countries outside of the US.

When one comes to Brazil though, one has to be sure to get guarana, a local caffeinated soft drink with alleged health benefits coming from the fruit. I don't know how to describe it aside from it tasting like fruit soda, but I had a couple different cans, including one from the Coke team as well as from the local Antarctica bottlers that did the limonada above. I couldn't really tell the difference between the two, but they were both relieving in the blazing heat.
