I saw this drink advertised on the trains yesterday and was wondering whether I would catch it in the conbini today. It wasn't in 7 Eleven, but I did see it in NewDays and Family Mart. Vinegar and Milk is the title in English. It says Grapefruit, vinegar and milk in Japanese. Game to try this? Let me know what it tastes like.
This week, Monday is a holiday in Japan, so for all those who normally have their Conbini Monday on the first day back at work, you will have to wait until tomorrow to stock up on snacks.
Cake in Choco by Glico looks like it would be popular with the office ladies. A tiny cake to eat without putting on the calories.
As with last week, there were plenty of new drinks out at the stores this week. Here is a quick glimpse.
LOVE MODE GINGER from Suntory. Supposedly a sweet and dry Ginger Ale
Lots of different cocoa products here from Morinaga. milk cocoa to drink, cocoa sticks to munch on, milk cocoa caramel bars and milk cocoa snack bars. This is all to celebrate Morinaga's 90 years of making cocoa. That's a lot of cocoa!
soupcafe have some new branded soups and drinks in store. Here you can see their corn potage, clam chowder and hot chocolate. Nothing really original here. Not sure how long they will remain on the shelves.
Meiji have brought out a chou-BIG (super large) chocolate pudding. Looks a little plasticky but it might taste good. Anyone given this one a go?
A few snacks to pick up for the afternoon tea session. Get your Bourbon choco anpan either in milk or soft chocolate. I like the chef character with his chocolate mustache
Kabaya have a new soft gumy out called GUIMAUVE, billing it as a soft and moist gummy which is like a French marshmallow. Worth a try.
Rilakkuma found at Family Mart. Whereas Lawson normally co-brand their Rilakkuma products to make them more interesting and unique, this is just the normal Rilakkuma type product you can find at any store. Would like to see Family Mart license the brand and produce something joint with San-x
What are you having for your Conbini Monday this week?
