Americans Try Japanese Sodas

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

– Product name, Mango Creamy Soda, parentheses, carbonated drink. (pouring liquid sound) (upbeat music) – Peering down the bottle
at what color this is I’m like a little suspect of it. – Look at the milky white. – Little cloudy. – Can we say the thing
we think it looks like? – It looks like (bleep). – Good luck. – It tastes like mango juice. – It tastes just like a bunch of melted Haribo gummies in dirty water. – I would 100% drink this soda. – I would definitely buy this at the store because it’s so tiny and I would love to just carry it around
and have people comment. (lid pops)
– Oh, cool! – Oh my God!
– (screams) What? – What a surprise. – Oh, it packs a punch.
– It’s like liquid Smarties. – It does like a little bit of Red Bull. – It’s an entirely new taste to me. – I like it. – It’s okay. (laughing) – Cool, I see Hello Kitty
and I know Hello Kitty. – There’s a paragraph of instructions on how to open it.
– There’s some down here too. – Oh, this punches.
(cracking) – Place opener on top of a Ramune bottle and press down firmly with your palm. (cracking) – Oh my God! – Am I doing it right? At this point, lunch is
over, my lunch break is over. – Alright, that’s not bad. – It’s super sugary. (sound of disgust) – Yeah, that’s the worst one yet. – Really? – I really like it, actually
it reminds me of the frozen ice pops. – This tastes like Jones Soda to me. – I would agree with that. – I think, like, mixing this with alcohol at a party would be fun. – I noticed you just poured more of this. You went back for seconds. – I think there’s a chemical in this that’s controlling my brain more than me. (lid popping) – What is that? – It kinda smells like rotting fruit. – What does that smell like? – (laughing) What is that smell? – This soda’s angry at me. – Nope, nope.
(laughing) I’m against this taste. – Oh goddammit.
– Wow, that’s very unpleasant. – Kind of a sour,
(snapping) sparkling cider. – Yeah, this makes my
tongue wanna leave my mouth. – Yeah. – Like apple puree for babies.
– Yes! That’s exactly what it is!
– It’s like a baby food. – It’s baby food soda. – [Voiceover] I have arrived,
I shall take one tiny beer. – Are you enjoying the
giant football game? Throw me one of that tiny six-pack. – Here, one tiny beer for you. – One tiny beer.

I had a Ramune once…
The carbonation exploded and got all over the floor.
Still delicious though.

Oronamin C is not soda… it is vitamin c fused energy drink…

Who are these people…


Jun 6, 2016, 11:29 am Reply

The C drink is marketed as an energy drink and the last drink is non-alcoholic sour plum soda (that's originally alcoholic)… Generally locals will get the melon cream soda version of mango cream soda and the plain (soda) flavored ramune for their soda fix. Buzzfeed needs a Japanese intern lol

COMPLETELY unfair to throw Umeshu in with a bunch of sugary soda. It's plum wine. Throw it in a dessert wine tasting and people'll love it.

umeshu is supposed to be an alcoholic drink but they got the non alcoholic one😂😂😂 I live in japan and I always drink the alcoholic one so when I saw it I freaked out 😂😂 and by the way it's not that sour.

This is hilarious XD. I am 1/2 Japanese and I can't help but cringe at the mispronunciation of "Ramune" (The name is derived from the English word "lemonade" transliterated into Japanese.)
