Bolivian Coca Colla Is The Real Thing — Coca Leaf Included – The Consumerist

Back in the late 19th century, Coca-Cola hooked customers with a narcotic hit drawn from its namesake coca leaf. These days, Coke is cocaine-free, and may or may not still have coca-leaf flavoring, depending on who you speak to. But a new drink from Bolivia, Coca Colla, isn't shy about its ingredients, even sporting a bright green coca leaf on its label.

    could the coca leaf then be what gives coke its great flavor? i’ve never been a fan of pepsi.
    i’ll be visiting my son in astoria from july 12th-16th. he talks about the great restaurants there and having been to n.y.c. several times, i know there are plenty to choose from. can you make any recommnedations? i love all kinds of food so i’m not asking for anything in particular-just gooood food that is not going to make me go broke. i love cannolis so if you know of an italian restaurant that makes real good ones, please let me know.
    thanks for any suggestions you can make.
