Cola turka, super hard to find. It can be ordered over the interent though. Just search google. It is sweetend with real sugar and has just a little more spice to it than coke and pepsi.

From Japan:
CC Lemon - a very lemony pop with 1000mg of vitamin C.
Lemon Squash - a very sour lemony pop.
Mitsuya Cider - a 'cider' drink. Japan's lemon lime mix. Better than America's.
Fanta Melon - fluorescent green and oh so delicious. The best pop in the world.
Fanta Peach - who isn't interested in a peach flavored pop?
Pocari Sweat, Life Partner Dakara, Amino Supli - all of these are sports drinks with a light citrus flavor. Very good and refreshing.
Ramune - fizzy and delicious, it has a wholly different opening mechanism.

Can you tell I enjoyed my beverages while living in Japan? Oh, how I miss thee, Melon Soda...

Awhile back I posted a topic about going to CocaCola World and trying the World Sampler, if you go to that post there are several Int'l Beverages to try. There is an excellent apple soda out of China or Japan I can't recall. Good luck in your test.

Shadow I believe that soda is called Smart. It's a chinese brand and they make a Smart Watermelon and Smart Apple that I know of. I've had the Smart Watermelon and it was very refreshing.

I do know that Mezzo Mix is hard to find. Mezzo Mix is cola with orange in it, I know that they have some fountain versions at the World of Coke in Atlanta, also at Club Cool inside Epcot at Disneyworld. However it is not available in bottles or cans in the US as far as I know. For a canned version of Mezzo Mix I know that you can purchase some from German Deli: http://www.germandeli.com/beverage1-carbonated.html

Well, here's my obvious response:

Lemon Fanta. It can be obtained most easily (at least for me) in the US as the Polish "Fanta Lemonic" at many Polish grocery stores.

You have no idea how much of this I had in Spain, and how hard it was to lug 24 cans of it back.

I carried twenty 20 oz. soda bottles separated in four different bags from Vegas to Aguascalientes (including the luggage with my clothes)... I came home with my arms and shoulders all screwed... but all the effort worth it... :D
