A taste of Perú, sweet Perú

Here is just a sampling of the delicious desserts we were lucky enough to try while in Perú. A lot of the desserts contain unique fruits not familiar to U.S. residents, such as lúcuma (a subtropical fruit native to the Andes of Perú).  We have noticed that the desserts and drinks here are much sweeter than what we are accustomed to. Just grab a bottle of Inca Kola, the nation’s favorite soft drink, and see for yourself!
