Most of us have grown up listening to the commercial Lime and Lemony Limca. This advertisement from the late 80’s had the whole India swaying to its peppy beats. The ultimate drink with the freshness of lime catapulted Limca into an unmatched popularity. Rubbing shoulders with stalwarts like Pepsi and Coke, our desi soft drink took everyone with a refreshing surprise.
Limca was first introduced in 1971 and later sold to Coca-Cola in 1993.
It is the least acidic of all the brands of Coca-Cola and very similar to Sprite and 7-Up in its taste.
This lemon-and-lime flavored carbonated soft drink is made primarily in India and in some parts of the US. Like most of its counterparts Limca does not contain any fruits and relies solely on artificial flavors.
Limca, the crowning jewel of the Indian soft drink market has maintained its strong foothold in India despite the presence of the celebrated American brands like Pepsi Coca-Cola and Sprite.
The soaring popularity of Limca can be attributed it to its unmistakable Indian branding- it is entirely a homegrown soda (like Thumbs Up) with a refreshing taste, just perfect to beat the Indian summer blues!
Watching kids gulp down the soothing soda after playing a grueling sports match, or washing down a spicy treat with a bottle of Limca is not a rare sight.
The brand has remained true to thirst quenching narrative in its campaigns.
Encashing on the popularity of this drink, foodies have creatively combined Limca to titillate their taste buds-
- Virgin Mojito with Limca- This amazing drink can be prepared with Limca, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water and mint leaves.
- Lemon juice with Limca- Add lemon juice to Limca with a dash of black salt and sugar. Add sliced ginger and mint leaves for an amazing flavor.
- Beetroot beverage-This healthy potion combines boiled and ground beetroot, lemon, Limca and black salt to create an alive thirst-quenching drink.
- Summer bonanza- The revitalizing concoction blends the magic of Limca with a few pomegranate seeds, red raspberries, mango slices, mint leaves, lime juice and orange segments.
Little wonder that our desi population in North America loves to team up their meals with Limca, one of the most popular imports from India.
