Yeti Drinks: Soft Drinks of Malaysia

Though we are both pretty good at remaining on a budget for our travels, we both (but me, Ahi, especially) spend too much on soft drinks.  For Rach, it’s pretty much always a Coke Zero.  Or, if there are no Coke Zeros, she mixes it up and goes for a Coke Light.

I, on the other hand, am often blinded by the novelty factor.  Give me long enough and I’ll try every generic sprite and bad cola knockoff.  But when I find something else, it can be really exciting.

Here are some of the drinks I found in Malaysia, from worst to best.

  1. Strawberry juice? Like, they juiced each strawberry, or more like blended it up in a blender? Either way, color me intrigued.
