Coca Cola and Pepsi are leaving Russia. While there are less and less bottles in the supermarket shelfs, their Russian substitutes Cool Cola, Jumbo Cola, Streets (instead of Sprite) or Fancy (instead of Fanta) are appearing on the same shelfs now.
While we are still in Moscow, Charlotte and I tested and compared the Russian new comers. Its not about taste, but how they react with Mentos (which are also supposed to disappear). What’s your favorite suga water replacement?
And yes, they are all not good for your health, especially when mixed with Mentos … and yes there will be parallel imports via the “…stans” and Coke & Co will probably still be available in the future in Russia (but for a higher price, of course).
