do people in japan even drink these on a regular basis? when youre like a 14 year old into weeb shit theyre cool but when youre older and just want soda you realize how impractical and gimmicky as shit they are. you have to exert all the strength in your body to push the stupid plastic thing in and dislodge the marble and then youre rewarded with 3ml of soda that you have to slurp out like youre a goddamn hamster it fricking moronic

      I don't think it's actually understood by most people how to even open these fricking things. When my buddy and I were teenagers we bought one and it took both of us trying our asses off to force the thing in there, but there's apparently some easy way where you can just easily open it one handed.

          Weird, there's a tool? I made the same mistake the first time I bought the America-safe kinder egg, I didn't understand I was supposed to use the little plastic tab as a scoop and ended up using the strength of my tongue to lick the stuff out.

    No, they're a novelty even in Japan, but historically known. I don't recall seeing them anywhere but probably buried on a store shelf somewhere, certainly not in vending machines. You will find plenty of other "cider" (lemonish, not apple) flavored sodas, candies, and ice creams though.

    I bought this soda for the sake of interest here in Russia, well, ordinary soda, which is inconvenient to open. By the way, it cost $ 1.5 approximately, how much does it cost in the USA?

      The store next to be charged 1 to 2 dollars depending on the type or flavor but I've seen it at weeb places for like 5 dollars.
      Is Russia as bad as people are saying now or is it just Western propaganda nonsense?

        For the most part, what they tell you is a lie, of course, cheeses from Europe have disappeared from the shelves, but cheese from Latin America has appeared, and there are also many local producers of cheese and other products. With the rest of the products as well. Western food corporations simply changed their names and continue to produce products under other brands, Coca-Cola became Dobry-cola. There are also more products from Asia. (sauces, miso pastes, drinks) I do not know how all this happens in practice, but, it seems, the import of products from Europe should have been banned, but at the same time, the assortment of European wines is constantly updated in local wine shops. In general, you can just search YouTube channels for English-speaking people who live in Russia, many people, including from the USA, Australia, Europe, move here for a living and tell everything in detail.

      That's what it is in Japan, too. Just a regular soda that uses an outdated bottle design due to a unique historical circumstance. The marble bottle top was invented in the UK, and was made to counter the American metal cap design invented around the same time. The company that makes Ramune was the first Japanese soft drink company, and they chose to license the British design rather than the American one because they had closer diplomatic ties with the UK at the time. Eventually the copyright on the American bottlecap lapsed and most companies switched over to it because it was cheaper and easier, but Ramune kept using the old British one because it had become a part of their brand image. That style of bottle used to be common throughout the British Empire up until WW2, and it's still used in India and the surrounding areas as well.

    They're worth the effort if you can find a place that regularly stocks them, otherwise it's just flat soda. Mitsuwa or H mart is the go-to for me, I haven't visited either in a long time so they could've downsized their cold beverage displays since then but you'll still be able to access off the shelf genuine product.

    When I was home staying there they often drank instead large litres of asahi brand tea, beer, canned coffee, and fresh delivered milk. Unlike the West Japanese people don't drink water with every meal. Some restaurants seemed to know this as ameshiski and delivered a glass of water for me with my meals special.

    No, Japanese usually drink only sen-cha, green tea carefully prepared according to the traditional Japanese tea ceremony by a trained and licensed geisha girl, usually taking between 2-4 hours per day. Anything else is for tourists.

    No. They don't. Convenience stores don't have Ramune, neither do supermarkets or vending machines. You find them only in candy stores or being sold during summer festivals.

    And in general Japanese people don't drink soda. 99% of the time it's either tea or coffee.

      Those canned coffee/tea things that fill all their vending machines have more sugar than a Coca Cola, which they also drink plenty of.

        26g of sugar in a 327 ml can of UCC (popular sweet brand) vs 39g of sugar in a 355 ml can of coke.
        The canned coffee also has much fewer ingredients and doesn't use corn syrup. Plus half the canned coffees aren't even sweetened, just canned cold brew.

          My bad, my memory was off. Still, 40% daily intake in one drink is a lot.
          >they don't use HFCS
          Ramune does. (In European packaging it's called fructose syrup or similar). Regardless, it's the same thing as sugar. 'Fructose' is just the technical name for sugar, it's the same substance as the sugar derived from beets used in Europe or sugarcane in hotter environments.
