Chuckola Cola is a soft drink made from Chuckola Fruit that is popular throughout both the Mushroom Kingdom and Beanbean Kingdom, which is first seen in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, later reappearing in the game's remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. Since in the Japanese version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga the beverage was an alcoholic cocktail, during the English localization it was changed so it was a "cola" instead.[1]


Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga / Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions[edit]

Chuckola Cola is found in Chucklehuck Woods in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. There is another rare variety called Chuckola Reserve, which is needed to cure Queen Bean after she is infected by a Belly Blech worm. Although actual bottles of Chuckola Cola are seen very rarely in Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, several were seen in the S.S. Chuckola, an ancient boat bound to ship Chuckola Cola across the world.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

Chuckola Cola (as well as Chuckola Fruit) is given a cameo appearance in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, where it appeared alongside Prince Peasley on a poster in Peach's Castle's Shroom Shop.

Brewing Steps[edit]

The entrance of Chateau de Chucklehuck has four statues, each giving four different steps to brewing Chuckola Cola.
