The Two Places You Won't Find Coca-Cola
All-American cans of Coca-Cola are reportedly sold in over 200 countries, and seem to connect the U.S. to the rest of the world, in a culinary sense. However, there are two countries where Coke products are difficult — if not outright impossible — to find, and neither of these countries have the best relationship with America.
Diplomatic relations between the U.S. and North Korea are infamously tense, and the country's self-isolated nature means that many foreign imports, including Coke, are only sold at upscale, affluent retailers. A more common staple amongst North Koreans is a knock-off beverage that looks and tastes similar to Coca-Cola.
Another practically Coke-free country is closer to the soda's home base. When Coca-Cola was still in its infancy, one of its first international selling locations was Cuba; however, fifty years later, when Fidel Castro’s government started taking over private assets, Coca-Cola cut its losses and left, never to return.
