Slurp up Japan’s Frozen Lemon CokeImage credit: @lsyleung
I don’t drink soft drinks that much, unless it’s used as a mixer during Friday nights out. But since I was born—and then married into—a family that loves Coca-Cola, the news of Japan’s Frozen Lemon Coke has been flooding my ears since word got out. Set to hit the shelves of 7-Eleven outlets islandwide on 16 August 2019, this drink is sure to be a hot commodity, and getting your hands on it will prove difficult.
What makes this lemon-flavoured coke slushie a must-try is the fact that it took eight years of R&D and over 100 prototypes before it got released in Japan last year. That’s a lot of effort and money put into creating a drink, and this means it can only taste amazing.
Featuring real lemon juice, this frozen slushie is expected to be extremely refreshing, with a nice citrusy flavour. This is great, considering Singapore’s weather is sweltering hot these days.
Based on other sources online, the pouch is said to cost $1.50, which is cheaper than a bottle of water at 7-Eleven.Image credit: @napajapan
Aside from Coke, it seems that Japan has other frozen sodas, namely Fanta Grape and Fanta Orange. Hopefully, those two flavours will come to Singapore by this year!
