History

Ülker was established in 1944 as a cookie bakery by brothers Sabri and Asim Ülker. The original "Pötibör" biscuits are still popular. In the 1970s the company expanded into chocolate manufacturing, then later into dairy products, coffee, and many other food products.

In 2003 Ülker expanded into soda pops with the launch of Çamlıca and Cola Turka. Cola Turka's debut began with widely anticipated televised ad starring Chevy Chase as a confused American who begins speaking Turkish after drinking a Cola Turka. The new cola appealed to Turkish national pride as a stylish new drink on equal footing to the big imported sodas. Like Mecca Cola (introduced the previous year) the drink also represented a Middle-Eastern alternative to Coca-Cola which many see as a controvesial symbol of American interests. While its initial popularity has faded somewhat, it remains an important competitor to Coke and Pepsi.

Review

A sweet drink with a slight bitter edge. Fairly typical refreshing cola flavor, more similar to a Pepsi than a Coca Cola. Its more on the sweet and fruit-flavored end of the spectrum than the bitter or spicy end.

I prefer a cola with a punchier flavor but this is a refreshing drink with a pleasing flavor.
