The Real thing? Bolivia to produce Coca Colla

In 2010, a factory in Cochabamba Bolivia will start producing an energy drink made from coca leaves that will go by the name "Coca Colla" (a play on words, as indigenous Bolivians are sometimes known as Collas or Kollas that comes from the pre-Colombian Colla people of the Antiplano region, esp around lake Titicaca). No packshot yet, but apparently it's going to be dark coloured, sweet and fizzy. Remind you of anything? Find out more in Spanish language links here, here and here.

Or if you prefer, just wait around for the English language newswires to run their snide reports on it.

UPDATE: Sad, dumbass loser finally picks up on the story.
