Mini beverages from Japan
During our latest trip to Tokyo we went to the island of Odaiba, where we visited a shopping mall called Decks. On the second floor there are lots of small shops that sell candy, some sell American candy, some sell Japanese candy. In one one of them they also sell all kinds of different carbonated drinks. This time I bought four drinks there to bring home with me to try. Three of them being the mini’s.
The drinks are called Mini Cola, Mini Orange and Mini Melon. The reason why they are called mini is because the size of the bottle. They’re really tiny! You get one big swig out of the bottle and its gone, but they’re very cute. I think I would need maybe 4-5 to quench my thirst, but its a very unique thing to see. It’s something that I’ve never seen in the world before, so I had to buy them. I always find it fun to try different cola flavoured drinks from around the world so this was a must!
The drinks had a nice taste. It seemed that the cola one did taste a bit like an ice lolly that Ive eaten before. The other two where just as nice to try, but I think I liked the cola most out of the three.
The drinks are made by Tomomasu (http://www.tomomasu.co.jp) and they have been around for over 100 years now. They also make many other drinks that can be seen on their homepage. They are also known for making beer for kids, hopefully without any alcohol in it.
The bottles now sit empty on a shelf in the kitchen. The bottles are too cute to just throw away, so I will keep them there.
Have you tried any fun drinks from Japan?
