I went to Juz Desi, the local Indo-Pak grocery store. I was there to get some ground chicken, pita bread, and a couple other items. While I was there, I saw some intriguing, unique products. They had a cheapo knockoff of Oreos called “Rite.” Those turned out to be decent in taste, though a little different from Oreos and only a quarter of the size. They also have Pakola which you can see in the jpeg picture. It had a pull-tab instead of a regular pop-top that you find on a can of Coke. I thought, “Hey, I’m Pakistani, I should try Pakola.” Big mistake.
This is one awful beverage. It’s almost indescribable in its badness. It is light lime-green in color. If you’ve ever had Rooh Afza, imagine that in a carbonated green form. Though you probably can’t make it out, it says on the label that it’s an ice cream soda. Don’t believe it. It tastes nothing like cream soda. It’s like drinking flowers. That might not sound so bad, but trust me, it is. Don’t ever buy it. Don’t ever drink it. Don’t ever touch it.
