Kit Kat Ramune (Soda)

Kit Kat Japan came out with yet another new flavor on Monday, Ramune. Speaking of which, I haven't updated my list since October...and I need to because I've got about 20 to add...including baked potato and grilled corn on the cob!

Ramune is "soda" in Japanese. I wasn't sure what to expect with this, but when I saw they were white chocolate I was excited to try them! They're light blue and smelled and tasted like the squid ink soda I tried last week...like bubble gum. I liked them...a lot! Keanna thought they tasted a little like strawberry and Sydney said they tasted like Sprite....so lemon/lime.

The one thing ramune is known for is the design of the bottle. You don't just twist the cap to open it, you've got to push a marble down into the bottle! Back in November I took a video of my friend opening a bottle, and if you want to see it, click here.

On a side note, Bob's not overly thrilled with the fact that I collect these and don't eat them....I don't care for chocolate, so usually I smell them and let the girls have a stick each. The rest get thrown into a kitchen cabinet. When I got home from spin class yesterday I immediately took a picture with the little camera built in to my laptop and emailed it to him. I couldn't resist!

You lost me at the corn on the cob and baked potato flavors! That just sounds gross!

Regular Ramune is a ginger ale type drink.

The "Squid Ink" drink you show in an earlier post is a Ramune too.

I have a post about the "worst Ramune flavors" (it also mentions the US Navy):

BTW, you said that you collect Kit Kat chocolates...but don't eat them.
Since they're a perishable item, what do you do with them?
Just wondering...

Stephanie, the corn on the cob tasted like buttered popcorn and baked potato tasted like white chocolate but had an after taste of a buttered baked potato. I felt like a kid in "Willi Wonka" having the gum that tasted like full meals!

Tokyo5, I mentioned the squid ink soda being a Ramune from Hokkaido.

As for the Kit Kats, my husband and daughters eat them, I eat the white chocolate ones, I mail them to friends and family, and had a give away on the blog not too long ago. My neighbor just tried the chili ones on Friday...Right now I still have at least one of each, and still have plenty of time here, so I'm not worried about it at this point.

Off to find these! This might be one that needs to get sent home too.

Choosing different types of oak cabinets and discount kitchen cabinets is helpful when you order kitchen cabinets online.
