It has a Coca Cola trademark. The bottle is really stylish and the beverage seems to be cloudier than the Nigerian version pictured above.

    This must be the Nigerian bottler's current batch of "more modern" Schweppes bottles (I wonder if they buy retired bottles from other regions). Here it is recently among the imported beverages at La Fruteria.

    I think the contents are similarly cloudy in this one and the earlier bottling I showed above (probably a fluke of lighting in my original photo).

    Saw a new (to me) San Pellegrino flavor and decided to try it: "Chinotto"

    This one isn't for me. It's got an odd, bitter, warm spice flavor in the cumin to allspice zone that lights up my "do not want" response. I took a couple more sips just to make sure -- it could have been what I had been eating, but no, it's just weird. Maybe it works as a cocktail mixer, but not as a refreshing beverage.

    At Woodmen's in Buffalo Grove this evening, I found liter bottles of Polar Bitter Lemon. Could not wait to get home for some ice.
