Food: Asia and japan and japanese vending machine drinks25 Jan 2011 11:23 am

My mom is visiting Okinawa right now, and the thing to do is visit the aquarium. It is about an hour and a half drive up the island, so we stopped in at our local FamilyMart for snacks and drinks for the road trip. Since we got a car I have not been as diligent in dropping in to see what new drinks the conbini has, and was happy to see this on the shelf.

After some deliberation between this and a white grape Fanta, I finally got the chocolate wonderland soda. It is a special limited edition release (of course) for Valentines Day. I am not sure what I expected, but I did not think it would be good. But it was!

The taste is shockingly accurate; like a fizzy cold cocoa. Very desserty. It is near colourless which really threw me, but the flavour is refreshing and nice, yet still chocolate rich. Would be great as a float, or as popsicles.
