I don't know if anyone's ever tasted this drink - it's REALLY good. It's basically the carbonated juice of a brazilian fruit. They serve it at places like Rodizio Grill and Tacanos. Coca-Cola used to manufacture it, but they don't anymore. It's really refreshing, and I know that if they brought it back, it would be very profitable. So I'd just like to get some idea of what my odds are before taking it to one of the major companies. So, do the poll above.

Are you talking about Bawls Guarana?

If not, I didn't know there was a drink simply called Guarana. Guarana, I thought, was a substance for energy like ginseng...

Guarana == Cafiene

Not exactly. People are always saying that chocolate and stuff has caffiene, but it's a natural form of caffiene, which doesn't have the ability to cause migraines and addiction, so it's not actually the caffiene like we know. Otherwise? Yes - it's loaded with the stuff.

I could be wrong, but I was told that Guarana was a fruit. There are a lot of different brands that it's produced under - it's kind of like lemonade. It all tastes the same (except diet Guarana actually tastes a lot better!).

Addendum: Bawl's is one of the brands, but it's not the only one - there's Rodizio's own brand, Tacano's own brand, Coco-Cola, Antarctica, and a couple of other's.
