Where Americans and Peruvians Living Abroad Connect to Peru

Where to get Inca Kola in New England and in the Washington DC area?

with 2 comments

incaInca Kola is the Peruvian local soft drink (soda) and is also named “the Golden Kola”. It gets its yellow color from Hierba Luisa (Lemon Verbena in English), a natural ancestral herb. The uniqueness of the story behind it is that Peru is perhaps the only country in which a local soda beats Coca Cola and Pepsi in market share  – a case study that Harvard’s Business School has covered for more than a decade.

Some like it, some don’t mainly for its sweetness. But if you are in the first group, or you’d like to try it, you can get it in the International aisle of most (if not all) of the Stop and Shop grocery stores in New England (Boston, Connecticut, Rhode Island, etc.). It is available in 2 liter plastic bottles, and some stores carry smaller sizes of bottles and/or aluminium cans.

And if you are in the Greater Washington DC area (DC, MD, VA), you can get Inca Kola at the Giant stores in their International aisle.

If you’d like to read further about Inca Kola, a good place to read is at its Wikipedia entry by clicking here.

  2. Hi g…I know Inca Kola has a bottling facility in NYC, and I believe this might be the address: 215 E 64th St, New York, NY 10021. Phone (212) 688-1895. Perhaps they can give you the name of their closest stores specifically close to where you are. Hope this helps!
