Pakistani Sodas To Add To Your Collection

If you were amused by my April post about foreign sodas, then check out Columbia Halal Meat for another frontier -- Pakistani sodas.

These are mass-produced sodas, the Cokes and Pepsis of foreign countries shipped here to tickle some homesick taste buds or to provide an exotic option if you're new to the brands.

Columbia Halal Meat sells Apple Sidra, Bubble Up, Pakola Orange, and others in 1.5 liter bottles.  They join the Mexican, Indian, Turkish and Japanese sodas that I posted about in April.

Hey found your blog through your comment on World of Eats! Def got your blog bookmarked since I'm living in Howard County now. Great stuff.

Anyone tried Apple Sidra? Intriguing since its fall and the label makes me think of those caramel apple sucker candies that are delicious.

Also: is Bubble Up considered foreign soda? I remember ordering some at Pink's hot dog stand in Los Angeles once, and also I think its referenced in a country song played in the movie 'Six Pack' w/Kenny Rogers.

Regardless, love the name.

I didn't realize there was a Pakistani version of Apple Sidra. It's a very popular soft drink in Taiwan and I'm not sure if it's the same company or not... Tastes just like you would think a cider soda should taste.
