Over the past year and a quarter we have dedicated much of our focus to locating the best snacks in the world. So far we have traversed through 34 different countries and sampled their best cookies, chocolates, chips, and sweets. One snack item we have grossly neglected is sodas. Sure, soda is definitely junk food; therefore we can getaway with calling it a snack. The reason for our lack of international soda reviews if because they are far less easy to store and ship around the world. Never the less, tonight we are reviewing a soda imported from Japan.
When we initially unscrewed the resealable top we did not get the traditional pop and fizz associated with soda in the United States. That led us to double-check the due date, and it’s still good. We then decided to pour some into a glass, for better photos and to determine exactly what we were about to consume. It appeared to separate the soda water from the actual contents, leading us to think it needed to be shaken, and that was not the case. Although it looked a little foreign to us, we were pleasantly surprised by the taste. UCC Melon Creamy Soda is delicious, in an unfamiliar way. It’s smooth, sweet, with a little sour tinge at the end. It is carbonated, but only mildly. It also contains evaporated skim milk, so it’s creamier than its distantly related American counterpart. Overall we were very pleased and all reviewers agreed they would enjoy drinking this Japanese snack again.
Will World of Snacks offer the UCC Melon Creamy Soda in our international snack store when it expands to include snacks from Japan later this year? Not at first. There are many Japanese sodas that we would love to offer for sale in the USA with worldwide shipping, but we feel this would be a better expansion in the future. If you are searching for Japanese Snacks be sure to leave your details to the right. We will be sure to provide updates and special offers. If you are eager to try some foreign snacks right now, visit our international snack store. We currently feature several counties and plan to add a new country each month. Keep on snacking world!
