Found these at a small Asian market in town. The Thums Up, Limca, and Fanta are Coca-Cola products while Duke's is from Pepsi.

The Thums Up tastes like flat Tab with a gingery kick. The limca tastes like weak lemon\lime ade.

I haven't tried the Fanta or Duke's.

I have a picture of those same sodas in another post. I tried the Dukes Masala soda. You will never taste a nastier drink. Just the smell drove me away. They are from India.

Seems like those three (Dukes, Thums and Limca) are the standard Indian imports. I wish they'd import some Coke or Pepsi or something else...

Thums up wasn't horrible, just different, like flat Tab with a little spice to it.

Thanks bottleboss on the dukes review. I'll just keep it sealed smile.gif

The Duke's logo looks like the Pepsi-Cola's logo from the 60's-70's bottle...

The Thums up and Linca aren't too bad. But that DUKES is a Masala flavored soda. YUK! You really have to try it to know how bad it is people. Even my dog would not lick up the bit I gave to him!

Interesting.

The one drink I always notice in the asian mart is that Ginseng one with the clear-ish liquid and the actual root inside.

I bought Limca and Thumbs up at Jungle Jims. They were "fresh" imports, but they were terrible! I only had to buy them once
