Today, Cola Lacaye soda is manufactured and distributed by The Brooklyn Bottling Group, which manufactures, distributes, and imports various Caribbean-based soft drinks and food.[1] Cola Lacaye comes in three island flavors; Fruit Cola, Fruit Champagne and Banana.[2] Cola Lacaye is available in 12oz bottles and 2 liter bottles. Cola Lacaye has become part of the Haitian American cultural dining experience, especially for Rigobert's son, Ryan Richardson.[3][4][5][6]
