Back in March I posted about three Emiratis who joined forces with a Brazilian to produce a local Guaraná after a series of frustrated attempts to attract the interest of Brazilian companies into exporting the product.
Well, it seems they will need to get ready to face some fierce competition: Guaraná Antarctica can now be found on the shelves of several supermarkets throughout the UAE.
was happy to see the soft-drink, made from extracts of an Amazonian fruit, at
Lulu Hypermarket. And, surely enough, I made sure I stocked up (photo below)
before I advertised this here to my fellow Brazilian expats who miss this little
taste of Brazil. Don't want to take any chances... 'wink, wink' Abu Dhabi
Note to self: get a hold of SADIA and find out why it is suddenly so hard to find the delicious Pão de Queijo in the UAE. Would love to have it together with some Guaraná… Perfect match!
