When I stayed in Cali, Colombia for a month I tried a popular drink, champús,that is only served in Cali and in no other region of Colombia..It consists of corn, panela, cloves, orange leaves, lulo (naranjilla) juice, pineapple chunks, and water. It was very refreshing and the taste does not resemble anything I have tasted before. The best way to describe the flavor would be tart with a touch of sweetness and goes great with a cheese filled corn arepa. This is a great midday snack and was one of the drinks I enjoyed the most. The total cost for champus and an arepa is 3,000 Colombian pesos which is $1 USD.
