This month’s drink is a fantastic seasonal item that’s exclusive to the Japanese market – Cocoa Cola Strawberry! This isn’t available anywhere else, and while the flavour is more reminiscent of strawberry candy, it’s great to see such a fun new variety!

Sour plum is another classic and unusual Japanese taste, and this Milk Plum Popcorn has plenty of it! The taste is both sweet and sour, and goes remarkably well with the crunchy texture of popcorn.
This is a really cool snack: Mochi Taro. It’s deep fried rice cakes and is crunchy and salty.
Spicy Grain Crackers are just as they sound. They’ve got a great kick, and as the packaging suggests, they go very well with a cold beer!
As a change from the fruity flavours, this is Cocoa Bolo. They’re chocolately corn puffs, and taste very good with cold milk or a cup of coffee.
Turtle Crackers don’t have anything to do with actual turtles, but it makes for a fun packaging design! These are light and salty little corn puffs.
Melon cookies are very popular in Japan, and this Melon Pandaro Cookie has all the melon flavour you would expect.

More sweet-sour, this time in Roaring Gum. This grape-flavour chewing gum comes in a long stick, and has a strong fruity taste.
