Does anyone know where I can find Inca Kola in Calgary? We are doing an event tied to Peru and would like to serve authentic kola.

    I may be off the wall, and I'll try and remember to have a gander today when I'm out, but I can almost swear I saw these drinks at Superstore.

      Inca Kola, the cola of the Andes. Beware of its addictive qualities.

      Ok I'm curious about this Peru event of yours :)

      Found an online retailer Tifco Latinamerican Foods out of Toronto: http://www.tifcofoods.com/product.php...

      If you can't find Inca Kola in town then they might be a good option at $0.89.can (plus shipping mind you). If you use them let us know how it goes and I might place an order myself.

        Thanks everyone. I did find the Tifco Latinamerican Foods website yesterday along with another one out of Miami that ships to Canada. So I think that there will be Inca Kola.

        The event is showcasing our company's operations in Peru to our employees. Should be a fun time.

        An indirect longshot - you will need to do some additional legwork
        Event put on by "La Asociación Cultural Peru en Calgary".

        Click on the 2nd picture and look at the bottle on the table.
        Photo is from May 2008 (by the EXIF data).

        However, I can't find any contact info for the association.
        Probably the website know how to find them but there doesn't seem to be anything actually on the website.
        Or they could be defunct?

          Yep, I used to buy that regularly, though I now live in BC. Nice re-con work cancowboy digging that thread up, funny that it was about A& W Soda

            At the bottom of the thread, the poster found some at Boca Loca although it was nearly two years ago. Worth a call to see if they still stock it - if not maybe they can aim you at a supplier.
