Ubuntu – now found in the UK too

It’s strange but Ubuntu cola seems to be more mainstream in Sweden than in the UK. My brother found it in downtown Gothenburg, in a branch of a major chain of grocery stores. On the other hand, I haven’t seen it anywhere in the UK until yesterday. I found it in a fairtrade store in …
