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.
I had my own little conbini monday when I hit one up today and found a mango milk tea made by Coca Cola…..check it out, it was pretty awesome! I was surprised, because Coca Cola doesn't seem to diversify its product lineup as much as the Japanese companies tend to do
Mango milk tea sounds good. I would be in for that 🙂
It's 10:00 a.m. here in Texas.
I reaaly am envious of all the different products that can be found in Japanese conbinis. Yeah the term soda would be used over here. Seeing fanta is made by Coca cola the only time the word zero was used with Coke was when they introduced Coke Zero. All it had to do with was the calorie content without sacrificing the taste, no biggie to me. I'm more of a Mountain Dew drinker.But now only drink the store brands being on the limited budget. In Texas you'll find Dr. Pepper being more popular seeing they have a plant not far from here in Plano.
I would really love to try all the different products that are sold there, especially those great looking salt chocolate covered almonds, I see you had to get another bag lol, they where that good eh?:)
Sorry about the long reply, it's your article that help to keep going every day. I thank you.
Ja mat ne 🙂
Glad you are enjoying the conbini monday series. Dr Pepper is hard to find here, but it is possible. If you get your hands on some salt coated chocolates, enjoy!! 🙂
Everything looks tasty as usual!
Very very. Thanks
Meiji Almonds are beyond description, have to force myself not to eat the entire package when i get them
