Mogu Mogu Nippon | Convenience Store: Top 3 Refreshing Summertime Drinks

04.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

Hi, everyone! I’m Heir from MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s editorial team.

 

Our office is based in Harajuku, Tokyo’s hub for fashion and youth culture. When summertime rolls around and brings the sweltering weather with it, it’s ubiquitous to see people walking the streets of Harajuku with bubble tea or iced coffee in their hands to cool down.

 

Personally, I really love the drinks sold at convenience stores and can drink them whenever. They are cheap and tasty with many new drinks stocking the shelves all the time. There were a lot of popular drinks that began sales in June.

 

Today, I want to recommend three of these cool beverages to you, all of which saw much attention on Japanese social media.

 

1. Coffee Beverage | Starbucks Iced Orange Brûlée Latte

This chilled Starbucks drink was released on June 11 and comes in a very summery flavour: Iced Orange Brûlée Latte. Lattes mixed with fruit are always my weakness. This drink is extremely tasty, mixing full-bodied coffee with velvety milk, orange and crème brûlée. Its cute packaging and refreshing flavour make it the perfect choice for the start of summer.

2. Carbonated Beverage | Gabunomi Soda Float

From the popular Gabunomi drink series comes the new Soda Float flavour. Its packaging alone is enough to cool you down. The drink itself is a cute blue colour which is what made me want to buy it. It’s soda mixed with a creamy ice cream float which has an authentic flavour. As is always the case with Gabunomi, they have the perfect balance of sweetness in their carbonated beverages. This drink just makes you want to buy one and head to the seaside!

Price: ¥140 (Before Tax)

3.  Carbonated Beverage | Coca Cola Clear Lime

Clear Coca Cola became a topical drink on social media around the world when it was first released last summer. This summer, the drink is receiving a lime upgrade. By combining the colourless Coke with lime flavour, you can feel super refreshed during the hot and dry weather. Be sure to pick up a bottle if you’re in Japan this summer!
