There are a lot of melon sodas in Japan and you can find it in vending machines, fast food chains, restaurants, and convenience stores. Even though there are a lot of then I have only tried Gabunomi Melon Cream Soda so far, since I am a Pepsi or Coke girl. This much more famous on children than the adults.
This Gabunomi Melon Cream Soda is not easy to find. There are big supermarkets that doesn’t sell this but if they do, they have bigger version of this. You may also come across a vending machine that sells this. There is also Gabunomi Melon Cream Soda in can but I like this one in 500ml pet bottle because I couldn’t finish this in just one drink. Both can and pet bottle version have the same price of ¥140 but it might be cheaper in grocery store.
The flavor is really melon cream flavor and there is no other weird taste. If you have tried melon shaved iced with condensed milk before, that’s what it tastes like. It’s super good but it is also super sweet so some may only like to drink it when they are in the mood for a super sweet drink.
