Where to find squash (drink)?

Postby Estrella-15 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 6:14 pm

Hi, I've been looking to buy squash (drink) here in Peru, but it is not available in local supermarkets. Has anybody knows where I can find it? or a similar product?

Of course, this may be a very British thing!

I don't think they squash in Peru. I've never seen it while i was there.

I guess I will continue with my import strategy! Buy enough for a year and bring it back over

Here you have Tang or Zuko .. Almost the same

Look for 'Refrescos Instantáneos'

Probably even safer than the Squash from the UK, with Zuko you know at least for sure you are drinking sugar with artificial coloring..

It is better to chose the healthy option with everything you drink and eat..

Here In Peru you can get fresh fruits prepared instantly in a place as "jugueria" . Several options to drink. You can get anywhere in the "mercado" For example jugo de papaya, jugo de fresa, etc. with or without milk..

Anyway if you prefer industrialized juices obtained from fruits + cancerigenous additives : :D try "NECTAR DE FRUTA" as "Frugos" , "GLORIA", "Watts", "Pulp", etc.

I actually remember this in the news. If you read the article the problem was the chemicals in the plastic bottles and not the actual drink.

Saying that, it's easier to get or make an actual fruit drink in Peru so that's why there's no need for squash.
