Three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and Coca-Cola. For many people, Mexican Coke…er…Mexican Coca-Cola is the pinnacle of their adventurousness. It’s a bit different, but you can still read the label, so you don’t have to wonder what you’re getting. Of course, we at Armenian Fungus Cake couldn’t be satisfied with something as simple as soda from Mexico. We had to go a bit further, at least figuratively speaking. In our travels, we came across this bottle of كوكا كولا. Yes, that’s genuine Coca-Cola, and we at least think it came from Egypt.
There’s not much to say about it, since thanks to the wonders of global homogeneity, it tastes basically the same as Mexican Coca-Cola or any other variety that uses real sugar as a sweetener. The good news, at least, is that next time you’re on an archaeological expedition in a remote region of northern Africa, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to ask for a كوكا كولا and get a taste of home. You can also rest assured that you’ll have to pay taxes on that bubbly beverage. As for the death part, well, try not to do the death part. Taxes and Coca-Cola should be enough certainty for anyone.
