FYI--Sprite

So, FYI. Sprite in Brazil, sucks.

It's been a year, to when I packed up my last suitcase and headed to Miami to get a "good night's rest" before heading to Brazil to start the next chapter in my life.

At lunch today I decided to celebrate with a Sprite, a refrigerante I actually haven't ever drunk over the past year. It's a soda I always enjoyed in the US, it's light, crisp, refreshing...

...and absolutely terrible in Brazil.

So, if you ever come to Brazil, and you want a refrigerante, don't get a Sprite. Opt for a Coke. It's WAY better than the US version. Or, go Brazilian and get a Guaraná Antartica. That's delicious (and maybe a bit more natural? Maybe?)

  1. Really? I've never noticed a difference. Maybe I've been here too long ;)

  2. I'm not a big soda drinker (those I have been experimenting for experiments sake recently), but you might like H2O. It's not as heavy as even the American Sprite is, but quite refreshing.

  5. I hear ya, this is going to be hard for me. I love soda. My favorite right now is Coke caffeine free because I'm breastfeeding. I'm afraid to try it down there. But I hope I fall in love with something their like that Guarana they are all talking about.

  7. Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
    I just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru PeopleAbroad.org I intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
    Sorry for taking some of your precious time. If you are not interested please stop reading it now and forgive me for my intrusion.
    I would like to ask you to contribute to the website by writing one post with photos and/or videos about any region of the world. Your post will be linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
    I could also publish some of your posts as a summary and link them to your website where your articles could be read in full length. If possible, I would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example: https://www.peopleabroad.org/nerissa-filipino-living-in-italy/.
    To contribute, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled.
    This website is still under construction, I do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. I am just starting and that is why your help is essential.
    All the best,
    Nerissa
