Conbini Monday Wk9
Following up on last weeks look at Mitsuya Cider, I found a new Premium product from them which is selling in a limited quantity set. The drink’s unusual plum taste comes from being made of part domestic umeboshi.
Seems like Fanta might have taken a look at Mitsuya Cider’s sales numbers and decided they would get some mileage out of the word CIDER as well.
I have heard people refer to carbonated drinks as Sodas in the US, and as ‘pop’ in the UK, but I haven’t heard either place call them a Cider. I thought that was reserved for an Apple Cider product? Anyone have any more on this?
As always a mixture of products from the conbini on display for the week. Here are some deserts. These salt chocolate coated almonds were fantastic. The almond product from Meiji is not new but the added taste of salt really gave them a lift.
I actually ate the first pack I bought before taking a photograph and had to back to get some more. They were that good.
This yogurt and fruits combination also looked good. It will be difficult to decide which one to go with tonight.
