At the Tsūtenkaku in Osaka, we made a funny discovery. In the souvenir shop of the famous radio tower, we saw a Ramune with a really special flavor. The Ramune is a sparkling soft drink, really like lemonade, which we can often find at Japanese festivals called Matsuri. The tastes are often classical like strawberry, melon, orange ... But this is brand new, the Ramune has new flavors. We will taste the Ramune Kimchi. The Kimchi is a Korean condiment made from cabbage to which are added garlic, chili and other ingredients. That's why on the bottle of the Ramune Kimchi, there is garlic and chilli.
So this Ramune is not the one I prefer. But Pierrick was super curious, he loves this kind of challenge (remember the flying fish drink that turned out to be Dashi made of Flying Fish). In reality, it has a super bizarre taste. It is lemonade to which chili and garlic have been added. At first, we taste a little bit the taste of Ramune but it is especially the taste of garlic that predominates. And at the end, it burns the throat because of the hot pepper. It's not super nice to drink. But it was to test ;p
Normally, I would not recommend it. But it's funny as an experiment. And for 200 yen, it is a Ramune that must be tested, just for fun. Or to make a joke in a blind test LOL!
