He does mention a couple of ingredients that are illegal or horrendously expensive: viz., coca leaf extract and cola nuts. There was also an essential oil, the name of which I didn't catch, that he couldn't afford.

It's not simply the plant extracts and derivatives. There are places that the plants grow best and which give their derivatives a distinctive flavor. Like Harry & David's Royal Riviera pear. You can follow the recipe to the letter and still not produce a drink that tastes just like Coca Cola.

I think it's OK to use the term "terroir" in the food thread.
But "it tastes like the soil and climate its grown in" works for me.
