'thumbs up' at the dosa cart

epicure-us | Aug 8, 2002 04:06 PM

anyone ever tried thumbs up? it's an indian cola bottled by the coca-cola company. i tried it at the dosa cart yesterday because he was out of coke it's $2 instead of the usual price for a soft drink. it comes in an old-fashioned glass bottle and has an interesting taste: a little sweeter than coke or at least less carbonated, slightly pepsiish. plus there is a hint of spice like those leafs you get rolled up with spices. (bettlenut?) i think it had something in it that affected me like caffeine -- is there an indian equivalent of guarana? i think it kept me up last night. i liked the way it tasted a lot regardless.
