    Pepsi/Peksi

    Here are some different presentations of Pepsi in Nicaragua. Interestingly, Pepsi is locally bottled and made with cane sugar (not corn syrup, like in the USA). If you ask for a Pepsi, you might be misunderstood. Get it right the first time and just say: "Peksi". BTW that little bottle (6 oz.) costs C$4 ($0.20).

    Aquí están algunas de las diferentes presentaciones de la Pepsi en Nicaragua. Es interesante que se envasa localmente la Pepsi y que está hecha de caña de azucar (no sirope de maíz, como en los EE.UU). Si pedís una Pepsi, quizá se te malinterprete. Decilo bien la primera vez y solo digas: "Peksi". A propósito, aquella botella chiquita (6 oz.) cuesta C$4 ($0.20).

    I had a hell of a problem years ago asking for rubbing alcohol.

    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...

    My problem was asking for tonic agua, result... a blank look. When I found the can and held it up the clerk smiled and said agua tonica.
    Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

    You can also ask for a pikza and enjoy it with your peksi in your piksina. Or you could drive your jeek to go pick it up.....
